Why TJ Miller Left Silicon Valley

Last May, we learned that comedian T.J. Miller would not be returning for the fifth season of Mike Judge‘s HBO comedy series Silicon Valley. About a month later, there was an extended discussion with Miller about why he left the show and how the tech world comedy series would continue without his character, the bombastic, obnoxious Erlich Bachman. However, it sounds like there may have been more going on behind the scenes that resulted in the supposedly mutual decision for Miller to leave the series.

In a new feature on the fifth season of Silicon Valley, coming to HBO later this month, Mike Judge opened up about what happened with T.J. Miller that resulted in him leaving the show. His departure didn’t have anything to do with the sexual assault allegation levied against him since the announcement about Miller leaving the show came months before that surfaced. Instead, it was Miller’s behavior on set and his perceived propensity to partake in certain vices that made it difficult and sometimes even impossible to work with him. And when you have a cast and crew relying on you to be ready to work, that just doesn’t fly. Read More »

‘Deadpool 2’ Will Not Recast T.J. Miller

T.J. Miller Deadpool 2

Ridley Scott set a precedent when he worked quickly to remove Kevin Spacey from All the Money in the World following sexual misconduct accusations against the actor – but don’t expect the Deadpool 2 filmmakers to follow in Scott’s footsteps. Weeks after a story broke accusing Untitled Deadpool Sequel co-star T.J. Miller of sexual assault, the film’s producer confirmed that since Deadpool 2 is in its final editing stage, Miller’s performance would likely remain intact.

Deadpool 2

When it comes to 20th Century Fox’s surprise smash hit Deadpool, I’m in the extreme minority of people who just didn’t think the R-rated superhero comedy was very funny. Yes, I know you probably loved it, but comedy is super subjective, and for some reason it just didn’t work for me. But there’s good news for me and the three other people on Earth who didn’t think the film delivered as well as it could have the comedy department: a few of the cast members of Deadpool 2 claim the new sequel will be funnier than the original.

Deadpool Blooper Reel

The big screen adaptation of the Marvel Comics title Deadpool was already pretty raunchy when the R-rated action comedy hit theaters early in 2016, but it turns out there was plenty more filthiness from Ryan Reynolds as the Merc with a Mouth that we didn’t get to see.

Deadpool was a highly improvised movie that allowed Ryan Reynolds to ad lib a bunch of his lines, and the result is endless alternate takes and jokes, many of which didn’t end up in the final movie for one reason or another. Thankfully, a Deadpool blooper reel gives us plenty of those alternate takes along with some of the flubs that were made on set during production.

Silicon Valley

Steven Spielberg is a T.J. Miller fan, as he should be. Ever since Miller starred in one season of the short-lived DreamWorks show, Carpoolers, he’s been friendly with the legendary filmmaker, who wanted to cast him in Office Christmas Party. After that comedy, Spielberg decided to bring Miller into the OASIS for Ready Player One.

In the virtual reality-centric science fiction film, the Silicon Valley star will play a character inspired by a bounty hunter we all know. Below, get more details on the T.J. Miller Ready Player One character.
