Denzel Washington To Direct An Episode Of 'Grey's Anatomy'

But he won't be appearing onscreen.

Denzel Washington has signed on to direct an episode of "Grey's Anatomy." 

The actor and two-time Oscar winner will get behind the camera for the ninth episode of Season 12, TVLine reports. The episode will begin shooting later this month. 

Washington has previously directed films -- "Antwone Fisher" and "The Great Debaters" -- but this project marks his first time directing for TV. 

As DigitalSpy notes, Washington is good friends with "Grey's" star and director Debbie Allen, which could have been a factor in getting him to helm an episode. No word on whether he'll ever appear onscreen, but we can hope, right?
