After it was revealed that his reps had dropped him, other entities with which the actor was linked have decided to walk away from him. According to a new report from Deadline, Majors has been dropped from two projects he was to be involved in – The Man in My Basement and an untitled biopic about Otis Redding.

The report, released Tuesday night, says Majors has also been dropped from an upcoming ad campaign for the Texas Rangers baseball team. The decision mirrors one made by the U.S. Army earlier this month after working with the emerging actor on one of the largest military marketing investments in history.
The exact reasons have not been disclosed.
The exact reasons why Majors has lost these jobs have not been disclosed, but there is speculation that it could have to do with his behavior or with some legal problem. The actor has not made any statement on the matter and it is unknown if he has any other projects in the works.

Majors rose to fame for his role in the Lovecraft Country series and has since appeared in films such as Da 5 Bloods, The Harder They Fall, The Last Black Man in San Francisco and Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.
