Don't know if anyone's mentioned it yet, but since it's been in the trades I thought people might want to know...apparently Paramount was unhappy with Jimmy Doohan doing a part on Homeboys from Outer Space (I think that's the title) that had a scottish accent and a mustache and was kind of a parody of Scotty...and they pressured the production company to terminate his contract. And now he's off the show.
It's hard enough for actors to find work on the best of days. But this sort of thing is just appalling. If there are fans of Jimmy Doohan's work who are less than thrilled with this heavy-handed treatment (which has many folks in the Industry out here annoyed as well; Bill Mumy was nearly speechless when he heard it) and who want to note this with the studio, you're certainly free to do so.
