SMASH Trims Its Fat & Fires FOUR Castmembers!

| Filed under: TV NewsMusic MinuteBroadway BabiesKatharine McPheeBusiness Blitz


Glorious news!

That slimy, lurking, DETESTABLE Ellis (Jaime Cepero) "producer" character will only be returning to SMASH's second season to wrap up his story line.

Thank the television GODS!

AND Karen’s (Katharine McPhee) cheating, depressed lover-boy Dev (Raza Jaffrey) has also been downsized to series unregular, along with Julia’s boring husband Frank (Brian d'Arcy James) and her not-so-secret beau Michael Swift (Will Chase).

Good riddance!

Now new showrunner Josh Safran just needs some power-player leading lads, no more of these weasly, wet types!

But we don’t necessarily want more harda** directors, either…

We're happy with the one we've got!

    This news is a few days old. That a way to keep up with things. The 4 cast members are the worst on the show. So it seems that someone knows what they are doing.

    What about the GOD AWFUL kid actor who plays Debra Messing's son? HE should be at the top of the firing squad list and whomever cast him in the first place.

    Very happy about them getting rid of Ellis and Dev. Julia's husband didn't bother me so much. Her son, on the other hand, is a horrible actor! Crossing my fingers they get rid of him! Hate that they got rid of Michael Swift tho. Guess that means that part is getting recast in the show. Damn
