Ryan Phillippe and his son Deacon were spotted doing some grocery shopping at the local supermarket yesterday (February 22) just as news broke that the actor has exited the CBS drama pilot, previously titled Golden Boy, soon after getting the lead role.
The Crash star was set to play a young police commissioner in the untitled project, opposite Chi McBride and Stella Maeve.
Network bosses are now searching for a star replacement. Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that Phillippe expressed doubts about committing to the intense production demands.
Meanwhile, we do have Ryan’s stint on the upcoming season of Damages to look forward to.
