Our friend Amanda came up with the great idea of putting together a fan scrapbook for Justin’s 44th birthday. It’s a great way for fans to communicate to Justin how much he is appreciated and Justin Chambers Online is associating itself with the project.
Below is Amanda’s message about what the project entails and her contact information (Tumblr and e-mail) for any suggestions/questions and submissions. In addition to that, any questions/suggestions can also be left in the comments here at the site or sent to our Twitter at https://twitter.com/JChambersOnline
Because I’ve been seeing and feeling a lot of frustration with how little Justin and Alex are appreciated on Grey’s and we don’t have a proper way to tell him, since he doesn’t expose himself to the amount of recognition he deserves, I’ve decided to make a fan scrapbook for his 44th birthday on July 11th. I want this to be huge with tons of submissions, showing him how much we appreciate and notice his stellar acting. So, I’m starting early. Feel free to send any questions/ideas by email or to any of my tumblr accounts, chambered-heart and drevilkarev. Submissions should be sent to email@example.com. Let’s make this happen, fans, and spread the word!
Screencaps from Grey’s episode “You’ve Got To Hide Your Love Away” have been added to the gallery and the link to them is below.

Ahead of tonight’s new episode of ‘Grey’s Anatomy’, TV Guide posted a new interview with Justin and his co-star Camilla Luddington. Read what they had to say about Alex and Jo and what’s coming for them.
Grey’s Anatomy: Are Alex and Jo Really Going to Break Up?
For a hospital that has been dominated by on-call room romps and various hookups, it should come as no surprise that the new rule barring superiors from dating their subordinates will cause quite a stir at Grey Sloan Memorial. We’ll learn during Thursday’s Grey’s Anatomy that this is especially difficult for Alex (Justin Chambers) and Jo (Camilla Luddington), who, because they’re not married, are technically no longer allowed to date.
“They’re dealing with it horribly,” Luddington tells TVGuide.com from the set of the ABC medical drama. “It’s really jarring. They think it’s completely hypocritical. Jo is on damage control. She wants to do anything in her power that she can to make sure that she and Alex can still be together, but the powers that be make it extremely difficult for that to happen.”
If you caught the promo for this week’s Grey’s, it seems like Alex and Jo are headed for a big breakup, but that could be deceiving. In fact, Chambers says Alex will work to hang onto the one good thing in his life. “Commitment phobias are still [there],” Chambers says and explains that the rule will force them to really look towards the future. “I think they make a great couple and complement each other.”
“She’s very careful with her relationships,” Luddington adds. “It took her a long time to even let Alex know that she liked him and had those feelings. Even then, she was wary about keeping it as friends because she felt like she’d ruin stuff.”
But Alex finally confronting his father has made him a better man, one who wants to take the next step with Jo, as evidenced by his impromptu proposal before April’s (Sarah Drew) wedding. “Alex realizes that he was better off that his dad wasn’t part of his life because maybe he wouldn’t have become a working professional if he was always picking up after his dad,” Chambers says. “That was a really mature realization for him. I think it helps that he’s in a more stable relationship with Jo. They’re there for each other. That stability has given him more of an insight on how to handle things. We’re going to see him mature. Jo is making him more responsible.”
However, Jo might not be so mature when she blames Stephanie (Jerrika Hinton) as the culprit behind the lawsuit that birthed the new rule at the hospital. “Jo assumes by process of elimination that it’s Stephanie because of everything that happened with April and Jackson [Jesse Williams],” Luddington says. “She feels betrayed a little bit by her friend. Jo feels like there haven’t been many good relationships in her life, so Alex is someone who is beyond special to her. It’s not just a boyfriend that she’s in love with. For someone to potentially threaten that in a way that she feels is selfish, ridiculous and over the top, she feels betrayed. She’s really upset. She’s a little vicious about it almost.”
Do you think Alex and Jo will last?

★ I forgot to link to the following articles in a previous update so I’m going to do it now. Sorry about that.
TV Guide posted a piece previewing each character’s story at the beginning of the second half of season 10. This is bit for Alex Karev with Justin’s quotes:
Alex Karev (Justin Chambers)
Alex will not be a happy camper when he returns to the hospital to learn Shane has all but mutilated his father (James Remar). “Alex is dealing with his father and whether he’s going to live or not live,” Chambers says. “Shane had taken over the surgery in a very unprofessional way, so that’s where he’s at. It’s interesting to see Alex finally confront his father and all the issues they’ve had.” That new rule will also affect Alex’s relationship with Jo, who is still just a resident, but she might not be his resident for much longer.

★ Justin’s Grey’s Anatomy co-star, Camilla Luddington mentioned Justin in an interview she gave the other week.
Like you said, Alex practically proposes, and confesses his love to Jo. He says he wants kids and a life with her. Do you think all of that will happen? Do you think they could make it work?
Yeah, I think I do sort of see that future for them, I think that for Jo though it’s just way, way too early. I think that’s something she takes very seriously and I think from her point of view she grew up without any parents so she never really saw a good, happy, married couple. She never grew up in that family unit, so for her I think it’s territorial just a little bit. And it’s not something she takes lightly, I mean I think she wants to get married I just think it’s not right now. But I can see them somewhere down the line doing that. I mean Justin (Chambers) and I even joke sometimes that they’ll get married and they’ll end up ordering pizza that night, and that’s how they’ll celebrate and it will just be so them. But I just think it’s not right now, and also I feel like that proposal came out of a place of Alex feeling overwhelmed by everything that was going on and I think in those moments, yes your true feelings come out, and I do think he loves her and wants those things with her but I think that she feels like he may not have quite that declaration in that way, had his dad been okay.
