Interesting. Roiland voices both Rick and Morty. Iím ok with the change even if itíll be strange hearing different voices from the title characters.

I wonder if theyíll cast sound-alike voice actors or go with someone who doesnít sound exactly like Roiland. Iíve heard plenty of amateurs who can sound pretty close to Rick.

Wow that is big news. Such a bummer. But I guess you can't keep using a guy facing the charges that Roiland is.

If Tim Allen gets cancelled I don't care since I never found him funny.

But then someone else would have to voice Buzz Lightyear.

This might be old news (I didn't see anything in this thread past a few pages) but I'll post it anyways.

Harvey Weinstein Sentenced to 16 Years in L.A. Rape Trial


The sentence will likely lead to Weinstein, whoís already serving 23 years after a conviction in a trial in New York, spending the rest of his life behind bars. He maintained his innocence in a statement to the court before the sentence was delivered. ďThis is a setup,Ē he said.

Charges against Roiland not filed for the DV stuff. But he is still a creep for all the Twitter shit!

https://ew.com/tv/f-murray-abraham-r...t-allegations/

F. Murray Abraham was reportedly fired from Mythic Quest due to sexual misconduct allegations

At least two concerns were raised about Abraham's behavior, with the 83-year-old actor receiving a warning and being "told to keep away" from some of the actresses after the first alleged incident, a production source told Rolling Stone. After a second alleged incident was brought to creator and star Rob McElhenney's attention, Abraham was let go ahead of season 3.

Pretty sure this suspected after it was announced he was off MQ, but just never officially reported.

I guess there was a reason he was so good in his role.

I don't understand this comment given the info provided about his firing in the EW link.

I didn't read the article nor do I care for the details. A person of his age sexually harassing coworkers who are probably young enough to be his great grandchild is gross.

The article does not provide any details about what he is alleged to have done. Jeff Garlin's "sexual misconduct" that resulted in his firing from The Goldbergs TV show was his using profanity and making vulgar jokes on set. Sexual harassment/misconduct does not equate to sexually propositioning, or even flirting with, coworkers.

Agreed. Once you hit around 45 or 50, you really shouldn't be sexually harassing your coworkers anymore.

I got the worst of both worlds. Over 50, and yet too young to have worked in the "good old days"

Jonathan Majors professional career has taken another hit. His management and PR team dropped him. That’s not good. It’s only a matter of time before Disney drops him and projects he was attached to start dropping him.

Yeah I was wondering that too. Did they ever release the text messages that would exonerate him ?

If that's real, then I wonder why his management dropped him.
