Ahead of Thursday’s episode of Grey’s Anatomy airing, The Hollywood Reporter published an article about what’s keeping Alex and Jo from getting married. Ellen Pompeo said very nice things about Justin and the Alex and Jo (Jolex) pairing, and Camilla Luddington also chimed in on Jolex. Here’s an excerpt and the full article can be read at the source linked below.

‘Grey’s Anatomy’: What’s Keeping Jo and Alex From Getting Married?

For her part, Pompeo hopes Jo and Alex are MFEO and is perhaps the couple’s biggest fan.

“I know that’s not happening right now,” Pompeo told THR of an Alex-Mer pairing during a recent set visit. As for Alex and Jo, the actress warned that there’s (shocker!) drama ahead for the couple. “I’m excited about that because I love those two and I want to see them get some good story and stuff to play,” she said. “Justin to me is an ace of diamonds. I love him so much. He’s so talented. He’s like a young Brando — he has everything and is so amazing. But I don’t know [about a romance with Meredith and Alex]; we’ll see.”

As for Luddington, she still has high hopes for Alex and Jo’s long-term romantic future together — despite two unsuccessful marriage proposals.

“She is crazy about him and in love with him,” Luddington says. “There’s always been a part of her that hopes to re-create what she never had — a safe home life and family — and I do think she dreams about doing that with Alex, but it’s super complicated and there are a lot of things that are preventing that from happening.”

 

This is basically just a transcript of Camilla Luddington’s Cosmopolitan interview that was posted in this update. Below are the parts where Justin is specifically mentioned.

Grey’s Anatomy Star Camilla Luddington Is Dying for Jo and Alex to Get Married and Have Babies

Is Jo ever going to say “yes” to Alex’s proposal?
I have been approved by ABC to say that “questions will be answered.” Whether it’s the question, who knows, but things will be revealed. Do you know what? When Justin and I rehearsed, because he’s proposed twice now, I always say “yes.” I always screw up the take and I’m like, “Yes!” And they’re like, “No.” ‘Cause he’s just so cute. How can you not say “yes” to Justin Chambers?

I’m just going to say, even though our readers will hate this, I want Meredith and Alex to be together.
[Gasps.] Get out! I mean, obviously I’m Team Jo. I think it’s nice that [Alex and Meredith] have a brother-sister relationship. Because you don’t see many relationships on TV that are just platonic. And Justin and Ellen [Pompeo, who plays Meredith] are like that in real life. They’re like family, so their chemistry works in that way. I feel like it would be incestuous if they got together. I can’t even picture them making out.

What’s Justin Chambers like in real life, because he’s a mystery?
Justin is absolutely hysterical … I don’t think he realizes he’s being funny half the time.

Is he very dad-like? ‘Cause he has, like, five kids.
No. I almost feel like he’s got a Johnny Depp vibe. Super cool. Like, [he] will come to the table read, and he’s in his hat and his cool sunglasses. If I did that, I would probably look douchey, but he can pull it off. He just makes everything look cool.

 

Justin’s friend, Kelley Sane, uploaded this photo to his Instagram account on Wednesday (May 11) where he’s with Justin and a few other friends at the famous Sheats-Goldstein Residence (Los Angeles) for some tennis.

Check out Justin’s Grey’s Anatomy co-star Camilla Luddington’s interview on Access Hollywood Live. She talks about Jo and Alex’s relationship, the season finale, and see why host Billy Bush calls Justin a “silent assassin.” LOL

 
The contracts of the original cast of Grey’s (including Justin) that were signed in 2014 are up at the end of this season. This Entertainment Weekly article doesn’t really give any new information about the status of the contract renegotiations, but I thought some people might be interested in reading about how well the show is doing in its 12th season. A small excerpt is below, and the full article can be read at the link.

Grey’s Anatomy stars are seeking raises again

How’s this for timing: Just as Grey’s Anatomy prepares to wrap its 12th season as ABC’s No. 1 drama, contracts for several of the show’s stars, including Ellen Pompeo, are set to expire in June.

The Shondaland crown jewel is not only besting its younger siblings Scandal and How to Get Away with Murder in the ratings, it’s also the second-most-popular drama on broadcast TV among women 18–34 (behind Fox hit Empire). That has to be great news for agents representing Pompeo (Meredith), Chandra Wilson (Bailey), Sara Ramirez (Callie), Kevin McKidd (Owen), Justin Chambers (Alex) and James Pickens, Jr. (Richard), all of whom will likely use the show’s stellar performance to push for higher salaries.

(…) If you combine the drama’s ratings with how well it does on platforms like video on demand and online viewing, Grey’s is actually up 6 percent this season versus last among adults 18–49 and has seen an increase of 11 percent among women 18–34.

Five different topics in this update because I didn’t want to make five different updates (a couple of things I forgot to post in previous updates, so now they’re here. Oops).

ABC announced the season finale dates for its primetime shows, and the Grey’s Anatomy season finale will be on May 19th from 8:00-9:00 p.m.

 
The Grey’s Anatomy Tough Mudder Fundraiser for My Friend’s Place is still going on.
In a nutshell, several cast and crew members from Grey’s will participate in Tough Mudder to raise funds for the aforementioned organization that helps homeless youth. Every little bit helps and you can also win a visit to the set of Grey’s or a lunch with Giacomo Gianniotti (Dr. Andrew DeLuca) and other cast members.

Justin will not be doing Tough Mudder, but he has supported the cause by making a donation and also with the tweet below. To learn more about it and to make a donation, click on the CrowdRise link in the tweet.

 
TV Insider made a list of The 21 Hottest Couples on TV Right Now and Alex and Jo made the list. Check out what they said about them:

Alex and Jo (Grey’s Anatomy)
The mentor-intern relationship may seem like a cliché, but Alex (Justin Chambers) and Jo (Camilla Luddington) are undeniably meant to be. They both share similar hard-knock childhoods and career ambitions and are deeply committed to Seattle Grace patients. Jo’s relationship with the jealous Jason (Charles Michael Davis) ended in physical violence, but Alex’s protective nature kicked in. Hospital rules almost stopped him from being a couple, but Meredith’s (Ellen Pompeo) support meant they could continue being together.

 
Sarah Drew posted this selfie with Justin from the set of Grey’s last Thursday (March 31) when they were filming a scene for episode 12.22.

Love this guy! @officialjustinchambers

A fan whose teacher is Justin’s cousin received this video message. I’m not jealous… not at all. 😉

If you made it this far into the update, thanks for hanging in there. LOL

Actress Taylor Blackwell, (she played Alex’s patient, Kelsey,that had the transplant in this week’s episode of Grey’s Anatomy) gave an interview recently and mentioned Justin.

Young Actress Takes on the Role of Her Dreams

After being accepted to play the role on Grey’s Anatomy, Blackwell was able to begin working. She was able to interact with professions that had filming down to a science, and many stores were shared through experience.

“One of my favorite things about being an actress is the people you meet, and that was definitely one of the coolest things about being on the Grey’s Anatomy set,” Blackwell said. “I had a really nice conversation with Justin Chambers who plays Dr. Alex Karev about storytelling and career choices.”

 
The screencaptures from Grey’s episode “I Am Not Waiting Anymore” have been added to the gallery.

In the March 2016 edition of Allure magazine there is a short feature about the party hosted by Allure and MaxMara to honor the hair, makeup and wardrobe teams from Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal and How to Get Away With Murder. I had added pics to the gallery from the event (LINK) and now here is the report about the party in the magazine.

Actress Jerrika Hinton (Dr. Stephanie Edwards) has some of her personal BTS photos taken on the set of Grey’s Anatomy featured at Elle.
Read what Jerrika had to say about Justin and Camilla Luddington and the photo she took of them rehearsing the proposal scene from episode 12.08 “Things We Lost In the Fire.” See more of her BTS photos at Elle.com.

“Jolex” Has a Moment
“This is a classic Jolex moment, where everything is dire, and Alex chooses the wrong moment to pour his heart out. These two are wonderful, kind, generous, and very close in real life. I remember them laughing a lot. I gave Camilla [Luddington] a print of that image, and she put it on Instagram; to see the amount of people going back and forth about whether her character should say yes or say no to the proposal was hilarious. They have very, very strong feelings about it.”

 
Grey’s newest series regular actor, Giacomo Gianniotti (Dr. Andrew DeLuca) gave an interview to HELLO! and he mentions Justin.

H!: Grey’s is now in its 12th season, being the new kid on the block, did the cast have any welcome rituals for you?
GG: I didn’t get any hazing of sorts, but Justin Chambers is a really great guy. He just gave me the lay of the land of how things worked and opened up to me a lot about just acting and how to deal with being an actor on this show. I was very grateful for the wisdom he showed me.

 
Actress Judy Greer (she was in The Wedding Planner with Justin) gave an interview to Glamour and mentioned Justin.

Glamour: If you had to pick one of the leading lady roles in the movies you’ve been in, who would you want to be?
Judy: I keep going back to it, but I think Jen had so much to do in 13 Going on 30 because she was essentially playing two characters. But I think that would have been super, super fun. Katherine Heigl got to be with Ed Burns and James Marsden [in 27 Dresses], so there are benefits to that. You’re not dealing with one dude—you’re dealing with two awesome guys. And J.Lo got to wear a lot of Gucci outfits and hang out with Matthew McConaughey. And, again, Justin Chambers. I wouldn’t kick him out of bed for eating crackers!

 
Ellen Pompeo gave an interview last week where she talked about Meredith and Alex. Check out what she had to say about them below and read the entire interview (it’s a good read) at Cosmopolitan.

A lot of fans have latched onto the idea of Meredith and Alex getting together at some point. Is that something you could ever see happening?
Ellen: I don’t know how much I can really say — because I don’t want to get fired!

I’d feel very bad if I got you fired from Grey’s Anatomy.
Ellen: Listen. I said the same thing to Shonda, because Meredith seemingly doesn’t like Jo [Alex’s girlfriend]. And so I’m not really sure. Camilla [Luddington, who plays Jo] and I have really struggled with how to be truthful in these scenes. Why do I not like her? Why am I so hard on her? But ultimately that’s up to the big boss, what happens. This is Shonda’s show. And whatever Shonda wants to write, however she wants this show to go, or end, or continue to go, I have to be open to whatever she wants. My job is not to judge the characters’ choices or her choices. I just have to act my ass off. I never have thoughts about — well, I may have thoughts or opinions in my head, but they don’t really matter. Let’s say Meredith is going to wind up with Alex’s character and I can’t reconcile [that]. As difficult as that is for me to wrap my mind around, that would make it interesting if I had to do those scenes.

 
Variety made a list of their favorite TV relationships and Alex and Meredith’s friendship made their list. Check out what they had to say:

Meredith and Karev – “Greys Anatomy” (ABC)
Two of “Grey’s” original vets, Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) and Alex Karev (Justin Chambers) have always been good buds — to the point of irking Karev’s girlfriend Jo (Camilla Luddington) because the friends are so close. Maybe it’s the 12 years they’ve spent together, but through all the ups and downs, Mer can always lean on Karev, as seen in this past week’s heart-wrenching episode in which Dr. Grey was brutally attacked by a patient and the only person who could get her to smile through her rough recovery was — you guessed it — Karev.
