And the unpleasant news just continues!

The Young & The Restless' Michael Muhney was recently fired from his role on the hit CBS soap for inappropriately touching his costar.

After an alleged report from Michael's costar Hunter King, the actor was finally being let go to protect the safety of the rest of the cast.

Unfortunately, that isn't the end of the drama.

New reports are now surfacing, and sources are saying Michael didn't have a great reputation on the set of Veronica Mars either!

According to the sources close to the Veronica Mars production said that the actor was fired from the show in 2007:

"Partly because his ego was out of control."

Wow, he definitely sounds like a joy to work with!

That's so deplorable. He had so much potential as an actor!

    Seeing as Veronica Mars has been of the air pretty much since he left,this is pointless.Everyone has an ego.Everyone toots their own horn.Everyone pats themselves on the back once in a while.There is nothing wrong with that.At least him being fired for an over inflated ego is more believable then what is he is being accused of in the rumor mill.

    now i actually want to see him in something, he probably is talented.. all super talented people are a little ego centric.

    Hey Kimberly -

    Just wondering, but how do you know he's guilty? Were you there????

    Must be a slow news day when the story is (shock!!!) there's an actor in Hollywood with a big ego. Whoa, call 911!

    If you read the interview he gave on HuffPo, you'd see that he not only knows he's got a big ego, but he owned it, and admitted it's gotten him in trouble more than once.

    This guy is a piece of shit. I'd like to see that ego now? He can go fck himself because obviously the girls aren't wanting it anymore. Re: madmommy38 – someone needs to kick your fat ass in the face.

    I don't believe this story. News junkets, especially tabloids, will take one story and run with it, creating a million spin-offs. Wouldn't this revelation have come out in 2007? I don't think he was fired from VM, because him leaving fit the storyline that was going to be set in motion. I don't know if it's true or not, but this guy is a educated and devoted family man. Anyone who's a fan of his and has seen his interviews would agree. And no one is even considering the reports that the girl he supposedly groped made it up because she was upset he didn't return her advances. This story, and especially on this site since Perez likes to bullshit and take sides, I'll take with a grain of salt, and go with my feeling that I don't think he did this.

    He played a jacka$$ cop on Veronica Mars, so perhaps his "acting" was not much of a stretch.

    Re: aaron – Well apparently there are other people who have complained about groping. You do know that he's an actor and so pretending during interviews isn't a stretch right? Most celebrities aren't what you see during interviews and many of them are supposedly "family" oriented, but have multiple affairs. I don't really care about this story because he is an E list actor but your argument is basically "I believe him because he seems nice, and the girl could be lying because he wouldn't bone her!". Please.

    I just want to say that no one knows what the real story about the present situation. But wouldn't there someone who actually worked on Veronica Mars say something? I mean someone who will be named?
    Plus, he was one of, if not the first daytime actor to be photographed for the NoH8 campaign. Which I find commendable.

    I can't believe that people are immediately backing this guy up without knowing any information. I think it could all be true. He might have been difficult, some other cast members may have been out to get him, and, during a Christmas Party maybe he had too much to drink and groped a young girl.
    If he's innocent, he should sue.

    Who Cares if he was Fied from Veronica Mars many years ago. Ego problem who doesn't have one if the are good at acting and Just about ever movie actor or actress has a ego problem, THe PROBLEM I HAVE The Young and Restless is letting a Good actor go. They need to keep him on the show.

  12. aaron says – reply to this


    Re: fid – You misunderstood my original point. I said I didn't believe it because of how much the story had taken charge among other "sources" since he got fired. And because he's the bigger star within this whole thing, everyone is focusing on him and nothing else. Why hasn't anyone said anything about the girl in this? What if it wasn't his fault? I said what I said about him seeming nice because it was an observation, and because of what I see, and what I don't see from the media or any "sources" like the girl's part in this, I chose not to believe it. Apparently, you're saying "I read this on multiple gossip websites and I'm taking it seriously, because I can't seem to process that it might be a lie and the public doesn't actually know what's going on and I won't open my mind to see another view, like he might be innocent." Please.

    And still has POTENTIAL as an actor! He's a perfection and from what I've seen him in he can work circles around other actors. Nothing wrong with being a perfectionist.
