Colin Egglesfield out at Melrose Place!

colin_egglesfeld.jpgMelrose Place is about to have some repairs according to the executive producers, Todd Slavin and Darren Swimmer because Ashlee Simpson-Wentz and Colin Egglesfield  (Ex-AMC)have been let go (they’ll last air in January), and the “Who Killed Sydney?” mystery is being wrapped up in December.  This all comes from the very reliable Michael Ausiello of Entertainment Weekly Here are some excerpts from the Ausiello files as to why Colin and Ashlee get sent to the big soap bubble in the sky.

What was behind the decision to let Ashlee and Colin go?
TODD SLAVKIN:
Well, we always knew that this murder mystery would end in episode 12. And we always knew that [Ashlee’s] character of Violet would be instrumental in that as a suspect, and [Colin’s character of] Augie as well. And once that murder mystery was solved, she would go on her way. That was the original plan going into the development of the show.

So it was always the plan for Ashlee to leave after episode 12?
SLAVKIN:
Yes. Because we felt that once the murder mystery was resolved, the tone of the show was going to shift into a much more fun, romantic, sexy upbeat kind of show, and [her] character would move on.

Same thing with Colin?
SLAVKIN:
Colin was always meant to be the ultimate suspect. And his brooding alcoholic [character] tonally didn’t fit the paradigm moving into post-murder mystery Melrose Place.

How did Ashlee and Colin take the news?
SLAVKIN:
They’re total professionals and they took it like professionals. When you go into a show you never know what’s going to evolve and what the possibilities are. But because they knew ahead of time [that leaving was a possibility], it wasn’t a complete shock.
