Thomas Jane Suggests Race, Penis Size Got Him Fired From Stallone’s New Movie

Thomas Jane signed onto the Sylvester Stallone action movie Headshot in the spring, but not long after, he was off the project, replaced by Fast Five star Sung Kang. What went down? Jane told Collider that his termination was a result of producer interference: "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.' And they relieved me of duty and basically paid me off, which I was really upset about, you know?" Not that Stallone cared, according to Jane: "I didn't get a call from Stallone. I was a little upset about that. Maybe they didn't want anybody on the movie with a bigger dick than him." Provocative theories, both! [Collider]
