Blind Item: Popular Soap Abruptly Fires Actor, Rewrites Mystery Arc

This Blind Item has been burning a hole in my pocket during my two-month winter hibernation… er, career transition. A seasoned and extremely well-known actor who had a recurring role on a popular primetime soap was canned after several show staffers — both the on-camera kind and off — voiced complaints about the star’s unprofessional behavior while at work.

Apparently, the onetime big-screen A-lister (who over the past decade carved a niche for himself on the small screen) was making inappropriate comments to a number of women. At the risk of having the situation escalate, producers abruptly wrote out the actor, which forced them to tweak a major crime story/mystery in which his character was revealed to be the culprit. Now word is, the bad boy has been forever banned from appearing on any of this network’s shows.

So, who’s the blacklisted vet? Submit your best guesses below!
