Virginia Madsen Calls-Out Neal McDonough on ‘The View’

Written by , Posted in General

Virginia Madsen was on ‘The View’ to promote her new television show, ‘Scoundrels,’ and she discussed the recent controversy surrounding Neal McDonough’s last-minute recasting.  You might remember that McDonough was recast because his religion prevented him from doing sex scenes.  Madsen shed some new light on the controversy.  She said that it was clear in the pilot script that the actors had to be sexual on screen, and McDonough withheld his aversion to doing so until the last minute, presumably to land the role in hopes of changing the script once he got it.  Yikes!  That’s pretty shady if it’s true.  Hats off to Madsen for actually answering the question.
