Actors Hollywood Will Avoid Casting In 2020

Actors Hollywood Will Avoid Casting In 2020


The late 2010s witnessed the downfall of countless
celebrity careers due to a variety of controversies. Though many of these TV and film stars are
dead-set on making a comeback, we likely won’t see these names in any upcoming casting announcements. These are the actors Hollywood won’t cast
in 2020. The Jussie Smollett story of 2019 was a whirlwind
tour for onlookers. At first, he appeared to be the victim of
a horrific hate crime in Chicago in late January. “Jussie Smollett, a star on the hit television
show Empire is recovering from multiple injuries after, police say, he was brutally beaten.” Next, he was arrested under suspicion of orchestrating
the attack himself. The charges of disorderly conduct for allegedly
lying to police were later dropped in March, however, in the resulting court case. But that wasn’t the end of it. Citing the enormity of the resources used
in the investigation – a whopping $130,106 -Chicago Police Department spokesman Anthony
Guglielmi later stated, per Page Six, quote, “The City of Chicago will be sending Mr. Smollett
a bill.” According to the Chicago-Sun Times, Smollett
levied a malicious prosecution counterclaim against the City of Chicago, the police department,
and others that November. While continuing to maintain his innocence,
the actor’s lawyers claimed that the original case against Smollett had caused him, quote,
“humiliation, mental anguish and extreme emotional distress.” While we await the resolution of this whole
debacle, as of December 2019, it seems the professional damage to Smollett has been done. The actor was fired from Empire and not asked
to return for its sixth season. And with nothing on the acting docket in 2020,
it appears that Hollywood may take the cautious route and avoid hiring Smollett, at least
until this situation is completely resolved. Though Roseanne Barr was long known for being
unfiltered and unpredictable, this ended up being her undoing in a less forgiving climate. Shortly after the revival of Roseanne — the
show that made her a star — premiered in 2018, the comedian sent out a since-deleted
tweet that seemed to imply that Valerie Jarrett, who served as a senior advisor to President
Barack Obama, was the child of the, quote, “Muslim Brotherhood & Planet of the Apes.” The backlash response was swift. According to The Washington Post, ABC officials
immediately called an emergency meeting. Then-President of the ABC Entertainment Group,
Channing Dungey, released a statement, calling the tweet, quote, “abhorrent, repugnant and
inconsistent with our values.” And just hours later, Roseanne was cancelled
and the titular star was axed. While the series was later rebranded as The
Conners, Barr’s character was famously killed off, leaving the actress vocal about the fallout. “I thought the b—- was WHITE!! G—–n it! I thought the b—- was WHITE!!” Still, Barr’s planning a comeback tour of
sorts. Now, don’t go expecting her to appear on national
television in 2020. According to Deadline, she’ll start on the
stage first, joining forces with Andrew Dice Clay in a live show called the Mr. and Mrs.
America Tour. Speaking to Fox News, Clay defended his longtime
friend. He said: “She’s a comic because she’s wacky. I’ve known her since we were kids. When people ask about what she said, I say,
‘She’s a comic!’ We gotta stop policing comedians. This is America!” Oooh, boy. Much of the 2019 news stream was dominated
by the college admissions scandal. Lori Loughlin and fellow actress Felicity
Huffman headed a slew of parents accused of paying large sums of money to have their children’s
applications to elite colleges altered. While the nationwide scheme has made it unlikely
for either Loughlin or Huffman to appear in any Hollywood productions in 2020, the way
that they’ve gone about dealing with their individual charges may have changed their
paths slightly. After pleading guilty to paying a $15,000
bribe to boost her daughter’s SAT scores, Huffman served a 14-day prison sentence and
committed herself to supporting imprisoned women. At least for the time being, it’s not hard
to imagine her making a comeback in the not-so-distant future. Loughlin, however, has taken a different route. Accused of paying $500,000 to have their daughters
accepted at USC as crew team recruits, the Full House alum and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli,
have pleaded not guilty to their charges, which, according to Vanity Fair, resulted
in a six-month sentence in a related case. While Loughlin’s case is her own and may end
much differently, she was previously fired from The Hallmark Channel and would not go
on to appear in the final season of Netflix’s Fuller House – making it unlikely she’ll
return to any screens anytime soon. As Terrence Howard wrapped shooting for the
final season of Empire in September 2019, he made a surprise announcement to Extra. When asked what he had planned for the future,
he claimed that he was quitting acting. Howard dished: “Oh, I’m done with acting. I’m done pretending … .” “I’ve spent 37 years pretending to be people
so people can watch me pretend, and I think it’s time to just be Terry for a while.” While attending the 71st Annual Emmy Awards
shortly after, Howard gave a rather strange explanation for retiring to KTLA Fox. Speaking of discovering the, quote, “science
that Pythagoras was searching for,” he then launched into greater detail… sort of. The soon-to-be-former actor explained: “I was able to open up the flower of life
properly and find the real wave conjugations that we’ve been looking for, for 10,000 years.” He went on: “Why would I continue walking on water for
tips when I’ve got an entire generation to teach a whole new world?” At the time of this writing, Howard is still
finishing up filming the movie Selfie, so it will be interesting to see if he really
follows through on his promise to end his acting career. In any case, though Howard may be unpredictable,
we’ll have to take him at his word at this point and assume that he really is finished. Eliza Dushku joined the cast of Bull for a
short three-episode stint in 2017, but was supposed to stay on longer, according to The
New York Times in 2018. Reportedly made to feel uncomfortable by Michael
Weatherly, the star of the show, Dushku was eventually written off after she complained. However, she then sought mediation with CBS
and received a confidential settlement of $9.5 million. Addressing the conflict, Weatherly stated
in part: “I made some jokes mocking some lines in the
script. When Eliza told me that she wasn’t comfortable
with my language and attempt at humor, I was mortified to have offended her and immediately
apologized.” But that explanation didn’t fly with Dusku,
who fired back in a Boston Globe op-ed. She wrote: “I do not want to hear that I have a ‘humor
deficit’ or can’t take a joke. I did not overreact. I took a job and, because I did not want to
be harassed, I was fired.” In the piece, she detailed Weatherly’s alleged
on-set behavior, claiming that he made “rape van” jokes, leered at her, smelled her provocatively,
and made audible groans. While CBS chose to renew the show after these
disturbing allegations came to light, Steven Spielberg and his Amblin TV production company
have since pulled out of the series. The network might still be backing their guy,
but at the time of this writing, it remains to be seen how much industry support Weatherly
will receive following this scandal. Check out one of our newest videos right here! Plus, even more Nicki Swift videos about your
