Hollywood has definitely gotten slapped in the face with the hard, horrible realities within the industry. Harvey Weinstein may have been the first big titan to fall as a result of his sexual misconduct, but he wasn’t the only one.
Others such as John Lasseter, Kevin Spacey, and Louis C.K. have all been accused as well. Lasseter has since taken a leave of absence at Pixar, and Kevin Spacey was fired from House of Cards, and expunged from Ridley Scott’s film All the Money in the World.
Now, Disney has taken a note from Scott’s playbook, and has made efforts to get rid of C.K.’s involvement in one beloved TV series. In Gravity Falls, C.K. had a minor role as the horrifying disembodied head that was being dragged along by a giant arm. It was a minor role, but apparently, they thought it best to get rid of altogether, with series creator Alex Hirsch now voicing the character.
Here’s what a Disney spokesperson said to THR about the change.
“The role was rerecorded approximately one month ago and new versions of three episodes are now on the Disney XD schedule around the world. Series creator and executive producer Alex Hirsch is now credited as playing the character.”
The role is essentially inconsequential, but given Disney’s family-friendly brand, it makes sense why they’d do it.
Take a look at the clips down below. The first one is the original Louis C.K. dub, and the second is the redub with Alex Hirsch.
