Agent afraid role could ruin actors image in black community. Despite fans petitioning on line, ABC has unofficially decided to cancel “Dirty Sexy Money” according to co-star Blair Underwood. “As far as I’m concerned, we’re not doing any more shows,” says the actor, who played Simon Elder on the series. “ABC officially doesn’t want to use the C-word—canceled—but we’re not on the schedule. I would pretty much say we’re canceled.”
Hollywood agents are buzzing that the show was pulled from the schedule after Underwood refused for his character to play a bi-sexual role.
One agent said that “the show isn’t officially canceled because the station is looking for a replacement but is afraid to alienate viewers”.
Apparently Underwood, who’s often played the “sexual black-man” in a number of films in TV roles was “furious” at the thought of his character being bisexual.
More interestingly, Underwood’s agent is concerned that the role could taint his image as an actor and prevent him from being accepted by black movie goers.
The veteran actor seems to be taking the controversy in stride as he said in a recent statement, “My dad told me I should have something prepared just in case,” Underwood says. ‘If there’s a possibility, be prepared”.
This jail is ridiculous. It’s disrespectful. Pink?! Come on. What does that have to do with being in jail? Why the pink? Why the pink shirts and underwear? What’s that all about?
