Is Shane West Leaving "ER?"

swest.jpgIs the doctor out? "ER" fans waiting for former roomies Neela and Ray to finally hookup might have major disappointment in their future.

Shane West, who stars as Dr. Ray Barnett on the veteran hospital show, has just landed a leading role on the upcoming Fox drama "Supreme Courtships," says Zap2It.

The new drama centers on the lives of a group of Supreme Court clerks. Haven't we seen this show a million times before?

You can't blame West for wanting more screentime and a larger paycheck. However, I can't imagine giving up a steady paycheck for Fox's itchy trigger finger. Hopefully if and when Ray departs, that "ER" door will always be revolving -- and won't hit him in the ass. After all, they did hold a slot for John Stamos while his ABC show bombed.

"Supreme Courtships" will also star Zachary Knighton ("The Hitcher") and Leslie Odom Jr. ("Big Day"). The pilot is slotted to premiere in the 2007-2008 season.

"ER" currently airs every Thursday at 10:00 p.m. (EST) on NBC. -- Rachel Cericola

I really hope that's true, lilmis. I am not sure how often his site is updated. I know this news is pretty new.

However, I can't imagine that Fox or NBC would be thrilled that he is on 2 networks. Maybe "ER" will hold his slot like they did for Stamos -- or Jerry! (He has a new show coming too.)

ER. WRITERS I CAN'T BELIVE THAT YOU ARE TRING TO GET RID OF RAY'S. COME ON BRING NEELA AND SHANE TOGEATHER. YOU COULD ALWAYS WRITE IT IN LIKE GATES HAS HIM HELD CAPTIVE. AND NEELA FINDS HIM . THAT WOULD BE COOL.

Ahh, I wish there was some way I could get a hold of the writers and whack them on the head. x.x And I wish there was a way to get his legs back. huff. I hope he gets a good role that gives him the attention and credit that he deserves, as he's very talented.

I did watch the video interview at www. nbc.com/ER, and he says something aout tuning in next season to see what happens to Ray, but I don't remember him saying anything about "not leaving anytime soon".. =/

Also, I'd rather have ER at an earlier time.. it would be so much easier on my schedule! :O

Vanessa: You have to get TiVo (or something like it). That's how I watch "ER" every week. It also means I won't miss one second.

I don't doubt that Ray will appear next season, but there is no way his character can come back full time, is there?

I think he wanted out... wanted a roll with more screen time. However, I think it's crappy what they did to him!

Shane West leaving reminds me of when George Clooney was there.They ER producers always get rid of the leading men right when the stories heat up. I've been watching ER since the beginning and I'm very upset that there won't be a Neela and Ray story line.I hope the producers reconcider and bring Shane back.

Ray was soo cool, he was the young rockstarry doctor.... I really wish neela and ray would have gotten together, it was soo cool to see that ray had a soft spot for her. There are always romances spurring up with luca or abby or carter.. why not ray and neela :(

WE WANT RAYYYYYY
