Once again Entertainment Weekly‘s TV know-it-all Michael Ausiello has dropped a vague-but-totally-juicy blind item into our laps that’s just begging to be solved. (OK, we’re the ones begging — not knowing the answer is driving us nuts.) His latest scoop centers on the star of a popular TV series who has been fired by producers due to “budget cuts and creative redirection” — only the actor doesn’t know it yet.
Ausiello says: “If, or when, the axe does fall, the regular’s on-screen alter ego isn’t likely to be killed off. Although death has cast a shadow over many a plot, this personality’s demise would probably be deemed too morbid, even for this show.” Read the entire item.
A show where death is a regular occurrence but a main character getting the axe would be too morbid… Grey’s Anatomy? House? Are we barking up the wrong tree by going the medical drama route?
