Kevin Spacey is the current whipping boy, so he's been erased from all scenes of his latest movie? He's a fine actor and I'm sure he turned in an excellent performance but the studio is reshooting all his scenes with Christopher Plummer in his role and expect to release the film on schedule in a month. Come on! I'm not saying he's not guilty of misconduct but that's a bit rich, don't you think?

To avoid the backlash, I suppose getting rid of Spacey is being done out of fear. A severe ratings drop is also a worry, I suppose.

And I wonder how many would see the "new improved" version... If it's a good story, well acted, it shouldn't matter what the actors have done in real life.

It sickens me what people will do when you are said to do something wrong. Tough shall not judge. Oh hell.

I would think it would be rather costly for the studio to reshoot his scenes. They obvisously still have to pay him for his work, and now they're paying someone else for a "do over"? They could just have decided to not release it if they feel that strongly about it.

maybe. but he should know the media today no longer allows things covered up. some things i heard he did was pretty terrible to anyone. they are just covering up their tracks you might say.

So why hasn't anyone "erased" the Orange Groper?

@BarBaraPrz i am not sure what that is. but sorry, i just never was a fan so maybe it is why i am not concerned. it has just been so much in the news and the women on The Talk was conversing about him the other day.

I agree that they are taking things a bit too far in this case. I can't think of one actor or actress that was replaced for this particular reason, it smacks of discrimination, which is supposedly against the law.

I know, that would make me not want to see the movie, if I was the movie-going sort.
