'Silicon Valley' Producers Are Spilling Everything About TJ Miller's Exit

Silicon Valley producers are not holding any details back about TJ Miller‘s exit from the series after four seasons. The interview was given in the THR cover story featuring the other stars, Thomas Middleditch, Martin Starr, Kumail Nanjiani, and Zach Woods.

“There had been stretches when, multiple show sources say, he looked to have things under control, and others when he’d show up seemingly under the influence, if he showed up at all. ‘There are a lot of different ways you can find out somebody doesn’t want to do the show anymore,” creator Mike Judge said. “And it’s not fun to work with someone who doesn’t want to be there, [especially when] they’re one of the main people and you’ve got however many crewmembers and extras and people who are [not paid as well] and they’re all showing up before 7 a.m., and then are just like, ‘Oh, OK, we’re not shooting today.’”

He continued, “Table reads would start late as the cast and crew waited on the untamable actor, and when he did arrive he typically hadn’t cracked open the script. Schedules would regularly have to be rejiggered, and sources from the set recount tales of Miller falling asleep between takes, leaving cast and crew to nudge him awake.”

“There was almost a danger to having him around,” an insider continued. “He was explosive, and there were moments where you’d go, ‘Whoa, that’s not where I thought that was going at all, but that was fucking awesome’ … but it was a trade-off.” In the end, all parties involved decided it was best if he moved on.”

TJ offered a rebuttal, “In real life, I’m not always high like Erlich is. And this will blow your readers’ minds, but I’m not high when I work because it gets in the way of the comedy. I also am not a guy who’s blackout drunk, bumping into things on set…What was occurring was I was out doing stand-up all the time, even if it meant I only got three hours of sleep. So, the thing I have a problem with? It’s pushing myself to do too much.”

'Silicon Valley' Cast Gets Individual Covers for 'Wired' Mag

Thomas Middleditch reads a copy of Wired magazine featuring his Silicon Valley cast members on the cover for his own individual cover of the mag, on newsstands March 28.

Other cast members on the cover are TJ Miller, Zach Woods, Kumail Nanjiani, and Martin Starr. Here is what they shared with the mag:

TJ on the new comedy economy: “Most of our friends who are successful in comedy are the ones working in at least three different disciplines. The best way to become a successful comedian in our day and age is to become the most well-rounded comedian, with the strongest and deepest skill set.”

Martin on being offered Silicon Valley: “I knew that it was a great possibility that this show will not be as appreciated as perhaps we feel it deserves to be. You know that everything’s fleeting, everything’s passing.”

Zach on the new comedy economy: “Maybe you don’t get fat and happy and complacent, and you don’t buy a bunch of catamarans. But in return you get to do your weirdo ideas with your friends, as opposed to some sitcom that you sleepwalk through.”
