'The Secret Life of Pets 2' Drops Voice Star Louis C.K. After Sexual Misconduct Admission

'The Secret Life of Pets 2' Drops Voice Star Louis C.K. After Sexual Misconduct Admission
From Slashfilm - November 11, 2017

The Secret Life of Pets was a runaway family film hit at the box office after pulling in $368.3 million at the domestic box office and $875.4 million worldwide. Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment were so happy with the results that they quickly ordered a sequel to arrive in the summer of 2019. But in light of recent events, that sequel will be missing one of the original films voice stars.

Louis C.K. has been removed as one of the voice stars of The Secret Life of Pets 2 following his admission to committing several acts of sexual misconduct throughout his career. The comedian played Max, the Jack Russell Terrier who got caught up in a series of misadventures in New York City along with his unwelcome new mutt companion Duke (Eric Stonestreet), but he will now be replaced with another actor.

Following Louis C.K.s admission to these acts of sexual misconduct, all of the comedians collaborators have been cutting ties with him, so it should come as no surprise that Deadline has revealed Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment dont want him anywhere near their successful family film franchise.
