Who are the most epic fired actors? In Hollywood different circumstances arise that sometimes force a removal or change of star. Want to take a look at some of the most notable? Keep reading for more, with photos and videos.
Some of the times major incidents made it obvious that a celebrity is going to get canned. Other times it is unclear or controversial. For your entertainment we are looking back on some of the most memorable “pink slip” moments.
A couple years ago “Grey’s Anatomy” lost one of their big stars, Isaiah Washington. After an apparent run in with co-star Patrick Dempsey and making a homosexual slur to another cast member, the show decided to let him go. Even though it seemed pretty straight forward, the fired actor was very upset and said in a statement:
“I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore.”
Now, in what I think will be the most remembered situation happened earlier this year to the guy in the photo above. After a 20 year relationship with NBC, and about 7 months as host of “The Tonight Show,” Conan O’Brien was booted out! In one of the most controversial moves ever, they gave the show back to previous host Jay Leno! He took it in a very classy way and is now back on top with his new TBS show. Check out his farewell speech below.
Another guy who is no doubt scandalous is Mel Gibson. He was recently denied from “Hangover 2” because of his behavior lately. Lindsay Lohan also had some trouble with roles because of her problems.
Some of the fired actors, I totally understand. However some, like Conan, just don’t make sense. I guess ultimately it is up to those in charge to make the final cuts. These are just a few instances of many more. Who do you think is the most interesting? Check out these pictures and video, and then leave me your comments below.
