Morning Brew – Jessica Capshaw shares her “Grey’s” audition story

Happy Coming Out Day! I’m a huge lesbian!

Here’s Beverly McClellan‘s coming out story.

If you are still crying over last night’s Glee, here’s something to look forward to next week.

TV Guide asked the cast of Grey’s Anatomy for their audition stories. Sara Ramirez shared hers but my favorite is Jessica Capshaw’s.

“I auditioned for this show two weeks after I had my son Luke, and I was not interested in auditioning for anything because I was interested in being a mother. But my agent called me and said, ‘I wouldn’t call you for any other reason other than Grey’s Anatomy, because I know that’s your favorite show.’ So two weeks after I had the baby, I… auditioned for Nurse Rose [eventually played by Lauren Stamile]. I knew Patrick because I had worked with him two years prior, so he and I got along real well. But they picked the other girl and I was like, ‘Man!’ About a year later, I went in for a part that hadn’t been named yet, but she was this sexually promiscuous, adventurous part, and I didn’t get the role again. That was Melissa George‘s part, Sadie. They kept saying they really love me and I was like, ‘If they really love me, I would have a part in the show.” A month later, I got a three-episode offer to play Arizona Robbins.”

And three episodes turned into “you are never leaving us.” Yay!

In celebration of their 200th episode, The Daily Beast has a list of their 11 favorite Grey’s moments and the musical episode is on it because of Calzona awesomeness.

Out writer and comic Carol Leifer has joined the writing staff of Devious Maids. Could we be seeing a deviantly lesbian maid soon? I’d watch!

Athlete Ally is asking you to sign their petition and stand with Olympians like Megan Rapinoe and Lori Lindsey to uphold Principle 6, which states “Any form of discrimination with regard to a country or a person on grounds of race, religion, politics, gender or otherwise is incompatible with belonging to the Olympic Movement.” Solidarity for LGBT athletes in Socchi!

If you’re a Batwoman fan, this is a pretty cool wallet and/or clutch you might want to put your important things in. Speaking of, The Atlantic has a piece on “Why We Worry about DC Comics’s Gay Characters.”

Robin Roberts talked with Diana Nyad about her 48-hour swim for Sandy victims, which you think might be easy compared to her Cuba to Florida journey, but it wasn’t.

Jane Lynch and A.C.O.D. co-tar Catherine O’Hara talk love and marriage with HitFix.
