Some Good News Out of Hollywood

Neal McDonough, a former star on “Desperate Housewives” has been fired from a staring role that would have paid him $1 million because he refused to participate in sex scenes. McDonough was fired three days into the shooting of a series called “Scoundrel” after he refused to engage in passionate love scenes with co-star Virginia Madsen.

McDonough’s refusal was based his belief that such scenes would clash with his Catholicism and his reputation as a family man. McDonough is married with three young children and is known to have refused to film any sex scenes on “Desperate Housewives.” On that show he played a deranged husband and was killed off the show in 2009. McDonough is known for having stuck to such principles in the past even though it has cost him lucrative acting jobs and promising opportunities.

“In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.”
