Not likeable: Days after it was revealed he was fired from The Young And The Restless for 'groping' co-star Hunter King, it's now been said that Michael Muhney was let go from Veronica Mars for his cocky attitude and spilling finale details 'Part of me feels this is because I've always been outspoken, and sometimes I've been too outspoken,' he revealed.'Sometimes I've walked around with a big backpack full of hubris.That is entirely on me.' Given the chop: The star played arrogant Sheriff Don Lamb on Veronica Mars from 2004 to 2007, but was killed off six episodes shy of the series finale for leaking plot secrets and his cocky attitude that rubbed cast and crew the wrong way No resurrection: With his untimely death, it's not surprising that Michael won't be appearing in the Veronica Mars feature film, which hits cinemas in March, starring Kristen Bell, however, Jerry O'Connell will star as his younger brother, Sheriff Dan Lamb However, the breaking point for producers of Veronica Mars reportedly came after he allegedly leaked all-important season finale secrets, leaving them with no choice but to give him his marching orders.Veteran actor Eric Braeden, who has starred as all-powerful Victor Newman since 1980, also reportedly endured a tempestuous relationship with Michael, with the pair 'constantly at each other's throats', according to an insider.'[They] had to be separated several times because it almost got physical,' the source tells Radar Online.'Michael took his role very, very seriously, and always had all of his lines memorised.Eric, on the other hand, is very, very laidback and refuses to memorise his lines.He would often ad-lib scenes with Michael, which drove him crazy.''Production assistants are constantly placing Eric’s lines on props that he can read during filming.There is no other actor on the show that does this...
An ominous warning: An insider tells Radar Online that Eric has considerable sway with network bosses, stating, 'If you are one of Eric’s allies, consider yourself lucky; if you get on his bad side, good luck''Michael thought it was insulting not to just the scenes they filmed together, but to the entire show.
Michael’s work ethic is top notch, and yes, he is a perfectionist.
It’s what made him such a tremendous actor, and fans recognised that.''[There is] absolutely no question that Eric supported Hunter when she approached head honchos at CBS and Sony about Michael’s alleged groping,' the insider tells Radar.
'He is extremely powerful on the set, and there are a lot of people that are afraid of him.'If you are one of Eric’s allies, consider yourself lucky; if you get on his bad side, good luck,' they add ominously.
'During this entire ordeal from when Hunter made the complaint until it was made public, Eric has offered his counsel and guidance to Hunter, which she is very thankful for.' 'Believe none of what you hear and half of what you see': The actor has remained largely tight-lipped since allegations surfaced, but he took to Twitter on Monday and Tuesday to offer a quote that sums up his thoughts While the fan favourite announced on Twitter that he was suddenly departing the CBS show without further explanation, it later came to light that his co-star had filed a complaint with network bosses after he allegedly grabbed her breasts on two separate occasions.'Benjamin Franklin said it best, "Believe none of what you hear and half of what you see,"' he tweeted in response to allegations on Monday, before adding the following morning: '..that quote doesn't only apply to what is being said about ME.
