Major Smash Shakeup! Ellis, Dev and More are Leaving!

Ohhh! It’s a blood bath at Smash! Characters Dev, Ellis and Julia’s husband AND lover are leaving the show!  Now they need to send Julia’s kid off to boarding school, and we’ll be all set!

‘Smash’ scoop: Ellis and Dev are leaving the show! — EXCLUSIVE – Philandering fiancé Dev (Raza Jaffrey) and devious assistant Ellis (Jaime Cepero) will not be regulars in the show’s second season, sources say. It’s possible one or both actors could appear in an episode or two to wrap up their storylines, but that’s it. The plan is to have neither character as a recurring presence in the show’s new-and-improved second season.

UPDATE: Brian d’Arcy James (Debra Messing’s husband on the show) and Will Chase  (Debra’s lover) are leaving Smash too.
