hi, which are his new movies?

demonhuntressJan 31, 2015

At first i didn't think so but now I see he really is hot. Go McDreamy (although Derek is sometimes douchey :D)

His appearance on Will & Grace still makes me laugh. Great appearance!

While I love Patrick as McDreamy, the show is losing steam. Seems directionless. Maybe all the creative energy is going to Scandal and How To Commit Murder. Both very strong.

Not sure why he married Rocky Parker. They are almost 30 years apart.
