Thomas Jane Claims He Was Fired From Stallone Movie For Being White

Hung‘s Thomas Jane thinks he knows why he got fired from the Sylvester Stallone film Headshot, and no, it’s not because no one has any idea who Thomas Jane is. Apparently the Thomas Jane Sylvester Stallone beef started when producer Joel Silver joined the filmmaking team. “Well, Joel Silver came onboard the project and said that he has a quote-unquote ‘formula’ for these quote-unquote ‘buddy movies’ and it has to be a white guy and a quote-unquote ‘ethnic guy,’” Jane explained. “And they relieved me of duty and basically paid me off, which I was really upset about, you know?” Call us crazy, but that formula can’t be that precise. What about Lethal Weap…no, okay, how about Training D…oh no, wait. Well, there’s always True Lies. And if Stallone went True Lies with this film, we might actually see it. We demand more underwear dance scenes!

Perhaps remembering for a moment the dozens upon dozens of action films that don’t follow such a rigid racial partnerships, like Rush Hour, Live Free or Die Hard and most importantly, Big Mama’s: Like Father, Like Son, Jane randomly throws out another theory about why The Expendables star might not have been too sad to see his partner go. “I didn’t get a call from Stallone. I was a little upset about that,” Jane said, rationalizing, “Maybe they didn’t want anybody on the movie with a bigger d— than him.” So, it’ll basically have to be Kindergarten Cop 2 then, right?
