His butt isn't an issue. He reveals it often on Sons of Anarchy and it is very nice.

Ya, I'm pretty sure that's not the issue:

Well, on another site I read what people here have been saying all along -- he realized it wasn't the best career move, longevity-wise. Sure, it could make a lot of money quick, but it could also turn one into a pariah for other roles. If someone just wants to act, and just wants steady work and a decent, safe resume, this role isn't for them.

Such BS.... the book was crap and why this guy ever said yes to career suicide on a sure flop is beside me AND even if he is not as big as everyone else claims to be, there are such things as doubles... look them up and find out who in the past has used them for various reasons. ON TOP OF THAT I just love when mediocre people try to pass for clever while still being well... just common and mediocre.

so glad he left. after doing movies like "Green Street" and "Pacific Rim", I don't expect him to play such a role
