How silly is this?
So it took over a year for Speed to finally die in this side of the world, so I guess it’s enough time to assess whether or not leaving the show was indeed a good thing for him.
Some sources do indicate that Rory Cochrane (Tim Speedle) wanted to be written off the show to focus on his movie career. At the moment, Cochrane is slated to appear in Forearm Shiver and in Richard Linklater‘s film adaptation of Philip K. Dick‘s A Scanner Darkly. Not bad, as both films have enough promise as to not be another Jade.
Doesn’t anyone see the hilarity in this? Did David Caruso talk to Cochrane before he decided to quit? How would that go?
“Rory, let me talk to you for a sec.”
“It’s about me leaving, innit?”
“Don’t do it, Rory. Years from now, your career will be a running joke in South Park.”
“I’m not you, David.”
“Thanks for the advice, but no thanks.”
Here’s betting that Cochrane’ll show up in some TV cop drama before his career calls it a day.
