Ben McKenzie: Jerry's Famous Deli Dude
Ben McKenzie and a few friends dine out at Jerry’s Famous Deli on Saturday (October 10) in West Hollywood, Calif.
On Thursday, NBC canceled the 30-year-old actor’s drama Southland before its season premiere. Ben hasn’t been vocal about the cancellation but his co-star Michael Cudlitz is downright angry.
He tells EW, “I’m pissed. I’ve said it on my Twitter account. I’m pissed off. We had all the pre-season stuff, all the dinners and parties. They told us they loved and believed in the show. They said the [delay] would be good for us. On paper it all made sense so I was willing to believe I was being told the truth… I don’t just walk in one day and go, ‘Eh, I’m not going to act today. I know I told you I was going to act, but I’m not going to do my thing.’ But I guess because they own the ball and the ballpark they get to do that. It’s kind of cheap.”
