A START- Two Of The Worst Characters From ‘Smash’ Gone.
Well, thank the TV Gods. I am up to episode 6 and it is a train wreck of epicly bad yet thrilling proportions. I love it. And am very glad the terribly written Ellis is off the show. the actor and character sucked. Badly. So this is a start for Season 2. I really should finish Season 1 now……..
More of this kinda stuff……
TVLine has confirmed that polarizing (and by polarizing, we mean absolutely intolerable) characters Ellis and Dev won’t be a regular presence when Smash returns to NBC for its second season sometime in 2013.
No decision has been made whether or not Ellis and Dev’s portrayers, Jaime Cepero and Raza Jaffrey, will return to wrap up their characters’ story arcs. Nevertheless, it appears the former’s days of hallway lurking, eavesdropping, and unpleasant scheming are numbered, while the latter probably won’t find forgiveness after cheating (with two different women!) on Bombshell star Karen (Katharine McPhee) — then trying to wave it all away with an engagement ring. News of Cepero and Jaffrey’s exits was first reported by EW.com.
UPDATE: A show insider tells TVLine that two more actors — Brian D’Arcy James, a series regular as Frank, the hubby of Debra Messing’s Julia, and Will Chase, who recurred as Julia’s sometimes lover Michael Swift, are also exiting in Season 2.
Sad about Will. Loved him in ‘Rent’.
