Paging Dr. Izzie Stevens to Seattle Grace!

While promoting her new movie, One for the Money, Katherine Heigl discussed whether she'd ever be open to returning to Grey's Anatomy, and the answer may surprise you fans...

According to Heigl, she has already asked to come back on the show.

"I've told them I want to," Katherine tells us. "I don't know... Being a showrunner and being a writer of a TV series like that is so complicated that I mean she's got how many characters are there now? There's a lot and so she's balancing about 40 different storylines, so I don't know if it fits in to their sort of vision for this season or next or however many seasons it goes."

Katherine last appeared on Grey's in January 2010, when she left the series to raise her adopted daughter, Naleigh. And she tells us that if ABC or the Grey's producers were to call up and ask for her to return, she'd do it.

"Yeah totally. I really, really, really want to see where [Izzie] is. I just want to know what happened to her and where she went and what she's doing now. My idea is that she actually like figures it out, and finds some success and does really well in a different hospital. She was always floundering you know, and so she was always one step behind the eight ball and I want to see that girl take some power back."

Would you like to see Katherine on Grey's again? Could poor Alex Karev's heart take it?
