The New Lance & Reichen?

Just days after coming out to PEOPLE magazine, "Grey's Anatomy" star T.R. Knight was spotted with fellow hunky actor Luke MacFarlane, causing chatter that the two may be more than just friends.

Knight and MacFarlane, who plays a gay character on ABC's "Brothers & Sisters," were seen getting cozy yesterday in Santa Monica. The two went shopping for furniture and electronics before taking a break to enjoy the beautiful ocean view.

The last few weeks have been a little tense for Knight and the rest of the "Grey's" cast after the behind the scenes drama involving Isaiah Washington and Patrick Dempsey erupted. Some reports of the incident claim that Dempsey was defending T.R. against hateful comments made by Washington.

Whatever may have caused the fight, it's good to see T.R. enjoying the simple things in life.
