Looks like due to budget cuts, the character of Charlie Francis will be disappearing from Fringe come Season 2.
Actor Kirk Acevedo updated his Facebook Status today saying the following:
"WELL BOYS AND GIRLS THEY DONE DID YER BOY WRONG! THEY FIRED ME OFF OF FRINGE, AND I'VE NEVER BEEN FIRED IN MY LIFE!!!!"
Stinks for the actor, but I could see how the show would be just fine without him. Agreed?
