On tonight's Grey's Anatomy (Season 10, Episode 4: "Puttin' on the Ritz"), we all got to witness Derek impressing would-be donors with some unexpected juggling skills. Was that all put together by movie (er, TV) magic, or does Patrick Dempsey actually have a secret juggling talent?
Yes, yes Patrick Dempsey does have a secret juggling talent! As if he wasn't McDreamy enough already.
See, it turns out Patrick was an avid juggler when he was younger. As befits a man who went on to be a superstar, he didn't just toss balls into the air for fun — he took part in competitions, and placed third at the National Jugglers Convention. In fact, he was interested in all the circus arts, and at one pointed wanted to go to clown school.
He must have loved this circus-themed 200th episode! He even joked to TV Guide in their article about the episode that "I'm tired of being an international superstar. I'm running away to join the circus!"
Juggling is just one of Patrick's many non-acting talents. As most of his fans know by now, he's a serious race car driver, and he also owns the coffee chain Tully's. Oh, and when he was younger he was also a champion downhill skier. No big deal or anything.
Did you know about Patrick's juggling talent? Sound off in the comments below!
