Why F. Murray Abraham Was Fired From Mythic Quest?


The Oscar-winning actor F. Murray Abraham left the Apple TV+ comedy series “Mythic Quest” last year because of sexual misconduct claims, production sources told Rolling Stone.

Abraham, an 83-year-old movie and stage actor, was a key character on the show created by “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” writers Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day, and writer Megan Ganz.

In the first two seasons of the show, Abraham’s C.W. Longbottom played the company’s egotistical head game writer, who had trouble getting along with his younger coworkers.

But what was the main reason behind F. Murray Abraham Leaving the show? Let’s investigate here.

Why F. Murray Abraham Was Fired From Mythic Quest?

Rolling Stone said on Monday that Abraham was fired from “Mythic Quest” after at least two claims of sexual misbehavior.

After the first episode, some of the show’s actresses are said to have told Abraham to stay away from them. When McElhenney found out about a second event, he let Abraham go.

In a statement to Rolling Stone, the show’s studio, Lionsgate, said, “We take allegations of misconduct seriously and look into them in depth.” “As a matter of company policy, we don’t talk about what our employees do.”

Before Abraham left “Mythic Quest,” The Ringer called his character a “walking cry for sensitivity training.” At the time Abraham left, Lionsgate told Vanity Fair that he would not be coming back, but they wouldn’t say why.

At the start of the third season of the show, C.W. Longbottom died in a very dramatic way: he drove off a cliff in the Grand Canyon and his body was sent into space.

McElhenney told Variety that it was “a bummer” that Abraham wouldn’t be back, but that he wanted Longbottom to have a good ending to his story arc on “Mythic Quest.”

Abraham has since gone on to star in the second season of HBO’s satirical comedy anthology series “The White Lotus,” where he plays Bert Di Grasso, a womanizing grandfather who is known for making inappropriate comments.

Abraham got the Oscar for Best Actor in 1984 for the movie “Amadeus,” in which he played Antonio Salieri, a rival composer to Tom Hulce’s Mozart who was jealous and angry.

He also stood out in “All the President’s Men” and “Scarface.” More recently, he was in the Disney+ drama “Moon Knight” and the Netflix show “Guillermo del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities.”

Abraham has responded to the story with what he called “a sincere and deeply felt apology”.

“Though never my intention to offend anyone, I told jokes – nothing more – that upset some of my colleagues and as a result lost a great job with wonderful people,” the Amadeus actor told ComingSoon.

“I have grown in my understanding from this experience, and I hope they will forgive me.”

McElhenney told Variety at the time that season three came out, “It’s a shame that Murray isn’t in this season.

But we know that CW is a popular figure who plays a big role in the show. So, we made sure to give him a really good send-off. We deal with it in a big way for sure.”
