We can't imagine this was the right move!

Just two days before filming, Jon Heder dropped out of the untitled Comedy Central sitcom produced by Will Ferrell's company Gary Sanchez Productions.

"Comedy Central, Gary Sanchez Productions and Jon Heder have mutually decided to part ways over creative differences with the character," said Jon's rep.

The show centered around Heder's character, a financial whiz kid who is forced to move back in with his parents after losing his job. The network originally placed a 10 episode order on the show. It costars SNL alums Chris Parnell and Horatio Sanz.

Wonder what really happened!

    wow. he's kind of cute! never would have thunk it after Napoleon D.

    Jon Heder, who is Mormon, most likely took issue with the script. He probably felt some of it was against his values.



  3. 3

    As far as I've heard, he's a strict Mormon & has argued over scripts before because of his beliefs. He's probably pulling a Jim Caveziel, or however it's spelled…. Sounds like a bad career move to me! It's just acting, not like he'd really be doing whatever it is that's offending him…

    His tiny microlips freak me out….it looks like he has no lips at all.



  13. 13

    he probably had to kiss an actress and he made a scuff about it since he's in that mormon cult

    Re: RobPnMeShouldB – Paul Rudd is a genius, the geeky kid is funny, Seth rogan isn't remotely funny to me, he doesn't even act, he plays a stoner(seriously think about it virtually all his characters are stoners or at least smoke ALOT of pot) and just sits there emotionless, everyone makes HIM look funny, not vice versa, he's quite frankly horrible.
    And Will ferrel is probably the worst comedian i've ever seen, I don't think i laughed once through blades of glory, i laughed how horrible Talladega nights, he plays the same character over and over, only difference is their job, he's trying to be the new age jim carrey and /or Chris farley, sorry buddy those are the elite you got about 400 levels to jump to get to that status, you'll never make 2 levels, nevermind 400.

    He sucks

    Re: Pisky – Paul Rudd does rock! So does Jason Segel, & the others you mentioned, I also agree with. However, as far as Will Ferell goes, I think it's his comic timing, & facial expressions more than his movies per say. Did you see Seth Rogen in Observe & Report? See that flick! He plays a totally different character & that is a great dark comedy!

    Mormon. That's it.
