Edward Furlong

Fired from SECOND Film

Over Domestic Violence Arrest

EXCLUSIVE

0116-edward-furlong-tmz-doc
The bad news keeps piling up for Edward Furlong -- the "Terminator 2" actor just got canned from ANOTHER film as a result of his domestic violence problems.

TMZ broke the story ... Eddie was popped by cops on Sunday for allegedly attacking his girlfriend -- the third time he’s been accused of domestic violence in only 3 months. Eddie has already pled not guilty ... but he's still behind bars.

And the producers behind Eddie’s new film -- a rom-com called "Other Plans" -- have had enough, firing off a letter to Eddie’s reps yesterday, terminating their contract with the actor.

The letter states, "Given Edwards current status as being in jail awaiting arraignment on two charges of criminal domestic violence ... we are no longer able to engage his services for the film as per our agreement."

Producer Joe Eckardt tells TMZ the movie's already "suffered way too long waiting for [Eddie] to be clear of his legal issues ... It's time to move on now and make our film without him."

Sources close to the production say they were in talks with Jason Mewes -- aka Jay from "Jay and Silent Bob" -- to replace him ... but he's already passed on the project.

It’s the second film Eddie’s been fired from due to his ongoing domestic violence problems with his GF -- back in November, Furlong was canned from a flick called “Misled” following his arrest at LAX.

What an idiot. I'm sure Edward knew that if he hit his girlfriend again he would be in deep trouble. But he just HAD to do it again because he was having a temper fit I guess.

He sounds like Lindsay Lohan. Not a whole lot of thinking BEFORE doing. This is what heavy drug abuse will do for you folks. It turns you into a pathetic slimeball who tends to do stupid things that get them into trouble with the law.

People don't really want to see a movie with a guy who is associated with beating his girlfriend or wife so who knows if this guy is ever going to get another gig in Hollywood. He might be flipping burgers for real pretty soon just to afford to smoke his marijuana.

Who's dumber, him for his actions or her taking him back after the second time to get a third?

You know you've hit rock bottom when your azz gets canned from a flick and replaced by Jason Mewes.

“Now you ask a group of young women on the college campus, 'How many of you are feminists?' Very few will raise their hands because young women don't want to be associated with it anymore because they know it means male-bashing, it means being a victim, and it means being bitter and angry.” - Christina Hoff Sommers

Seems young women are fed up with the hypocrisy of feminism and it's sexist agenda, not surprising considering the internet-wide whining from feminists about Edward Furlong grabbing a woman's arm....while those same feminist websites made jokes and laughed when Catherine Becker sliced up and mutilated her husband
Gotta suck to be in a group that's losing thousands of members every year ;D

All I have to say to the production company doing this flick. Make sure Mewes and been clean and sober for a long time. That man was a disgusting mess in 2001 at the Chicago Comic Con, he treated the fans like ****, could hardly see to write and behaved like Silent Bob whenever a fan spoke to him.

Why are people saying he's the male Lohan? Last time I checked she was never fired off of a film because of her constant arrests. She seems to be one of the only people that never faces consequences for her actions. Eddie IS facing consequences, hes been fired.

Hitters never stop. No one should EVER date him unless they enjoy getting beat up.

He is just a punk. Try hitting some dude and see what happens. I bet he screams like a little girl.

A man can not hurt a woman into loving him. What I mean is perhaps Furlong became angry with her because of the lack of love and general respect as a person he felt coming from her. So I guess the morale of the story is, your heart is angry for lack of love...

Factual stats show domestic violence is about 50/50 between men and women, usually *mutual*...unlike feminist group stats that claim otherwise.
