Robert Sheehan Leaves Misfits.. For Hollywood?

Gobby young scallywag Robert Sheehan (Nathan to Misfits fans..) will not be returning to the show for this year’s third series, confirmed the executive producer at this weekend’s Kapow Convention in London.

With the E4 show already attracting a serious amount of attention in the sci-fi sphere on both sides of the Atlantic and with Sheehan already having a couple of movie projects under his belt, apparently Hollywood is beckoning for the young Irish star.

Doubts over Sheehan’s involvement have been circulating since the climax of series two, with the actors involvement in film projects such as Season of The Witch and Killing Bono suggesting that a movie career could be in the offing.

Apparently Nathan will be replaced by a new character called Rudy with Sheehan not be featuring in the third series (which is due to air in autumn) at all, with executive producer Petra Fried indicating that the character may be written out in a short clip set to appear on the E4 website.
