Theo James Replaces Ryan Phillippe

What’s a TV pilot without a casting switch-up?!

Actor Ryan Phillippe has been REPLACED in the new CBS drama, Golden Boy, by British actor Theo James.

The Downton Abbey star will take the lead role of police commissioner after Ryan, who left on good terms, was concerned about taking up a network show full time.

Theo underwent a long audition process before finally nabbing the role and can also be seen in the film Underworld: Awakening!

NEITHER are bad to look at, so we're not complaining!!!

Who would U rather??

    Ryan's "PRETTY BOY" looks are fading fast, and who ever said he can act? Thank Gawd he got those millions from Reese…

    I work in television casting, and I can tell you right now that when a high-profile actor drops out of a TV show for a stupid reason like not thinking he'll be able to do the work, it's never leaving on "good terms." If he was concerned about that he would have never closed his deal. In my opinion, he never had any intention of doing TV, he just wanted his name back in the press so he can make a film comeback.
