Pickens who plays TV doctor Richard Webber on Greys is holding an open casting call in at the Lula Washington Dance Theatre in Los Angeles for all who want to be part of his musical, Otis Sallids Gospel! Gospel! Gospel!, which opens this May.
Pickens wants to give newcomers the opportunity of a lifetime, and is looking for talent with serious singing chops.
He too, will star in the play, but admits, The only singing I do is in the shower!
Pickens started his acting career on Broadway and admits that theatre is his first love.
However, with a busy TV shooting schedule, he doesnt always have time to get back to his stage roots.
Pickens says hes never entertained the thought of combining his two worlds by creating a Greys Anatomy musical, but laughs, That would be great! Wed have to find someone with a good voice to play me.
