Todd Stashwick, actor and co-writer for Visceral Games' upcoming Star Wars title, has been removed from Naughty Dog's next Uncharted title, IGN reports.
Stashwick is known for his roles on TV shows such as The Riches and Justified. The actor, who was slated to play a villain in the game, told IGN that Naughty Dog "chose to recast my role." His voice work appeared in a teaser trailer for the title, currently expected for release on the PlayStation 4.
Recently, Stashwick signed on to work alongside former Naughty Dog creative director Amy Hennig for the Star Wars game. Hennig left Naughty Dog earlier this year, where she was working on the new Uncharted game.
Earlier today, Naughty Dog lead artist Nate Wells announced that he left the company in early April to join The Unfinished Swan developer Giant Sparrow. In addition to Hennig and Uncharted 4 game director Justin Richmond, Wells is the third high profile departure from the company in the past two months.
