The drama on Rosewood Season 2 is beginning looong before the sophomore season hits the air.
According to TVLine, Brian Austin Green left his new role on The CW series in the middle of shooting the first episode of the season.
Green didn't feel it was the right fit for him, and neither did the show.
Before the day was out, though, there is word of a replacement for the departing series regular.
Eddie Cibrian will step into the spot left open on the set.
At least they were only part of the way through shooting the second season premiere, so hopefully there will not be to many reshoots involved.
The character in question is Aaron Slade, East Miami Police’s newest member with a mysterious past, who will both challenge and complicate an already messy situation between Dr. Beaumont Rosewood, Jr. (Morris Chestnut) and Detective Annalise Villa (Jaina Lee Ortiz »

Twenty-five years ago today the film Boyz n the Hood was released into American theaters to critical and commercial success. Written and directed by John Singleton, then a 23-year-old first-time filmmaker freshly graduated from USC film school, this devastatingly powerful drama chronicles the struggles of black life against a backdrop of urban violence and racial inequality in South Central Los Angeles. The success of Boyz ushered in a new wave of black American cinema, featuring superior performances by Laurence Fishburne and Angela Bassett, and launching the careers of Cuba Gooding Jr., Morris Chestnut, Ice Cube, Nia Long, and Regina King. A quarter century since its momentous debut, Boyz prevails as a reminder of the importance of supporting new and diverse filmmakers in telling their unique and oftentimes personal stories.

Vin name dropped the late actor, whom he has called his brother, and at the end of the speech he sang a verse from the film's end song, "See You Again."

The PCAs are sort of the start of awards season, but things don't really kick off until this Sunday's Golden Globes.
