Things get a little steamy for Paul Bettany?
The Brit was scheduled to make his major American TV debut on Showtime's Masters of Sex but he has abruptly pulled out.
The new series is about sexuality pioneers William Masters and Virginia Johnson. Bettany was cast as Masters with Johnson remained uncast. It is also an adaptation of the book, Masters of Sex: The Life and Times of William Masters and Virginia Johnson, The Couple Who Taught America How to Love.
That's a mouthful to swallow.
But seriously, a show about nothing but sex and sexual relationships?! Who'd pass that up?!
Oh well, we wonder what made him change his mind?
