In a plot twist that even C.W. himself could not have cooked up, actor F. Murray Abraham (Amadeus, Moon Knight) has exited Apple TV+ comedy Mythic Quest. Lionsgate confirmed the information with Self-importance Truthful, although it was made clear that it is a private matter they will not focus on additional. Abraham, who's 82 years outdated, portrayed the raucous, alcoholic writer C.W. Longbottom, who supplied the story and dialogue for the online game that's the focus of the collection.
It is tough, and fairly frankly unfair, to take a position on the explanation for Abraham's departure from the collection.

An extra fascinating tidbit to that is that Abraham's character was the topic of a serious flashback episode in the midst of Season 2. Josh Brener (Silicon Valley) portrayed the writer's youthful self as he gathered his character and developed his knack for science fiction writing. McElhenney directed that episode, and it actually captured the melancholic tone that the collection tends to hit at sure instances. Provided that, will probably be fascinating to see how Season 3 handles his departure.
Fortunately, there have been two full seasons of the present the place his character has actually saved audiences in stitches. His efficiency on the collection was very a lot akin to Danny DeVito as Frank Reynolds in It is At all times Sunny in Philadelphia, or Chevy Chase within the early seasons of Neighborhood. Abraham is undoubtedly Hollywood royalty, profitable an Academy Award in 1984 for his position as Antonio Salieri in Amadeus. He at present voices the Egyptian god Khonshu in Marvel's Moon Knight.
