Jason Mitchell best known for his portrayal of Eazy E in Straight Outta Compton and The Chi has just been dropped from the hit series.
When it comes to young Hollywood, Jason Mitchell has been in high demand since his breakout role in the 2015 film “Straight Outta Compton,” but a shocking twist has turned and he is out on both of his projects. Read on to find out why Jason Mitchell Dropped…
CelebNMovies247.com reports that Jason Mitchell will not return for “The Chi’s” already announced third season, with Season 2 of the show currently airing on Showtime.
In addition to his leaving The Chi news, Jason Mitchell will no longer be starring in the Netflix film “Desperados,” in which he was set to star opposite Nasim Pedrad, Anna Camp, and Robbie Amell.
He recently posted this about being able to be a part of The Chi season 2:
According to Variety, Mitchell is no longer repped by UTA or Authentic Talent and Literary Management.
None involved would comment on the reason for severing ties with Mitchell. Reportedly, he was involved in an off-set incident during production on “Desperados,” leading to his dismissal from that project and subsequently from “The Chi.”
Since then, Mitchell has starred in films such as “Mudbound,” “Kong: Skull Island,” and “Detroit.”
He posted something on Twitter this weekend and it was apparently blocked and now he has been dropped from The Chi? Could social media played a hand in his firing?
