Dempsey signs for ‘Freedom Writers,’ ‘Enchanted’

“Grey’s Anatomy” star Patrick Dempsey has signed on for Paramount Pictures’ “Freedom Writers” and is in negotiations to join the cast of the Walt Disney Co. pic “Enchanted.” In the Richard LaGravenese-directed “Writers,” Dempsey will play the husband of Hilary Swank’s character in the story of a young teacher who inspires her class of at-risk students to pursue education beyond high school. Then, if scheduling conflicts can be worked out, he will take a role alongside Amy Adams, Susan Sarandon, James Marsden and Idina Menzel in the Kevin Lima-directed “Enchanted” for Disney. He’d play a hard-working single father who meets Adams’ character, who is banished by an evil queen from the animated world of Andalasia to present-day, live-action New York City.
