Maybe he wanted out and/or had a new role in the works ? He's had some good roles lately, he played George Hearst on Deadwood on HBO last season. George was the father of William Randolph Hearst the publishing magnate. George made his money in gold mining and was a completely different person than the one portrayed on Deadwood:






Born to neither power nor money, mining magnate George Hearst sends his
agent, Francis Wolcott, ahead of him to Deadwood to secure a set of
claims. When Hearst finally arrives by coach, Wolcott has managed to
consolidate all of the major claims for his employer — save one, Alma
Garrett Ellsworth's. She refuses to sell. But Hearst is not a man
accustomed to being denied. He keeps his hands clean, but is quick to
bloody others (including his second, Turner), in his quest to control
all the gold in Deadwood.


His plan: to build a gold mining empire, staffed round the clock with
cheap Chinese laborers. Wu and Lee fight to the death (Lee's) for the
business. Meanwhile, Hearst wastes no time securing himself a place of
prominence, purchasing the Grand Central from Farnum for $100,000 and
installing him as manager. He remodels immediately, busting out a
veranda to rival Swearengen’s balcony, as a place to watch over his
intended domain. Even Swearengen is forced to form uncommon alliances
to deal with this ruthless outsider.

"
In 1899, a publication produced by the University of California, described Hearst thusly:

“There
are no differing thoughts among his friends, who were numbered by
thousands from the humblest to the highest, as to the intrinsic worth
of Senator
Hearst's
character. In private and in public life he was a man of scrupulous
integrity. He was a faithful friend. He was without pretense or
presumption of any kind. His home, whether the rude shanty in the
mining camp, on Sutter's Fork, or the Yuba, or that modern Pactolus,
Feather River, or in a mansion on the hills of San Francisco, or an
elegant residence in the national capital, that home, however humble or
palatial, was the emblem of hospitality, and “welcome" was the password.



Mr.
Hearst
was a man of strong common sense. He was simple, genial, companionable.
He had a lively vein of humor. He was hopeful and courageous. His heart
was kindly, forgiving, humane. He was an excellent judge of character,
readily detecting the true from the counterfeit. In physique he was
tall and striking in appearance. His energy, thrift and success, his
integrity, manliness and unostentation, mark him out as a
representative American."

CBS Reverses Decision to Ax 'Jericho'

Wednesday, June 06, 2007
By LYNN ELBER, AP Television Writer

LOS ANGELES —
"Jericho" fans who slammed CBS with protests over the drama's
cancellation have won the battle: It will return next season, the
network said Wednesday.


It was an
unusual display of viewer might since networks usually put ratings
ahead of even the most passionate, well-organized fan base. But CBS
said the show deserved another chance, while cautioning that it must
prove it has wider appeal.

"Wow! Over the past
few weeks you have put forth an impressive and probably unprecedented
display of passion in support of a prime time television series," CBS
Entertainment President Nina Tassler said in a letter to "Jericho"
boosters.

The letter was released to The Associated Press.

"You
got our attention; your emails and collective voice have been heard,"
Tassler wrote, and seven episodes have been ordered for midseason
2007-08. "In success, there is the potential for more. But, for there
to be more `Jericho,' we will need more viewers."

Fans must do their part to rally interest while the network does its job, she said.

CBS
is planning a campaign to reintroduce "Jericho," including rerunning
the show on CBS this summer, streaming episodes and clips online and
releasing the first season on DVD on Sept. 25. The show's return date
and scheduling has yet to be determined.


CBS had to complete deals with cast members, including star Skeet Ulrich, before announcing its decision.

Networks
rarely reverse a show's axing but CBS has proven its flexibility at
least once before. In 1983, after "Cagney & Lacey" was canceled and
the network was bombarded with protests, the police drama was brought
back in 1984 _ and ran successfully to 1988.

Since
"Jericho" was canceled last month the network has been deluged with
calls, messages and shipments of nuts signifying viewer displeasure.

"We
are tired of the networks (not just CBS) tossing aside quality
programming," was the message carried by jericholives.com, one of
several web sites protesting the cancellation. "Enough! We're going to
fight for this one."

Clarke Ingram, a "Jericho"
fan from Pittsburgh, Pa., and a spokesman for jericholives, said
Tuesday that the drama about a Kansas town isolated by a nuclear
terrorist attack deserved renewal for its daring premise, writing and
acting.

"People would paint this as teenagers in
tinfoil hats" rallying behind the show, said Ingram, 50, an operations
manager for two radio stations. "That's not what this is. These are
educated professionals."

Several factors worked
in the show's favor: It appealed to the young adult viewers sought by
advertisers and was one of CBS' most popular shows streamed online,
indicating an audience beyond that measured by traditional ratings.

CBS
also likely took into consideration the dent a long hiatus put in the
show's viewership, the same scheduling misstep that hurt ABC's "Lost"
and NBC's "Heroes."

Last fall, "Jericho" was
averaging 10.5 million viewers; when it returned in the spring, it drew
about 8.1 million, about a 23 percent decline from the first half of
the season.

The display of fan enthusiasm
included the delivery of 50,000 pounds of peanuts, (that's impressive !) to its New York
offices. In the season finale, a character replies "Nuts!" to a demand
that the beleaguered town of Jericho surrender.

That's the same response that a U.S. general in World War II made to a German demand for surrender at the Battle of the Bulge.

Another
positive outcome of the fan campaign: CBS is donating the protest
peanuts to charities, including one that sends care packages to troops
overseas.

i don't know...to me, the story seems rushed. like the writers are trying to tell everything, tie it all up in just thes few episodes. knowing they won't have another chance.

not that it doesn't make a good show...just hurried at times.

This time, all the peanuts in the world can’t save “Jericho.” The
apocalyptic CBS drama found a place in television lore at the end of
last season when it was cancelled and later brought back after a
grassroots campaign that included fans sending upwards of several tons
of peanuts to the network’s headquarters. CBS brought it back
for a seven-episode run that could have paved the way for a third
season or given fans a somewhat satisfactory resolution. But the
comeback story appears to be dead for good as CBS is pulling the plug
on the show after another round of relatively poor ratings, according
to The Hollywood Reporter. An official announcement from the network is expected soon. The series finale will air Tuesday night at 10 p.m. (ET/PT) on CBS. The
trade publication reports that two endings were shot for the finale:
one that leaves a cliffhanger for another season and one that gives
closure to the story. There is a small chance the show could find new
life on a cable network, but the show’s high production cost could turn
potential suitors away.

It's a shame we won't see where that arc was going although I was not surprised to see that Republic of Texas Flag flying...The real one is in mothballs waiting to be whipped into action...no, I kid you not...Wink

I thought those last episodes far outshined anything previous...it's a shame...

Sorry about the size.

The Jericho Finale You Didn't See: An Inside Look


Have Jericho fans seen the last of their show, now that CBS has aired the "alternate" ending/series-ender? Executive producer Carol Barbee, who is currently shopping the drama around to other outlets, shares a peek at the original season finale.

TVGuide.com: Will viewers have any burning questions coming out of the alternate ending/series finale?
Carol Barbee:
Let me see.... I can tell you that in the original ending, Hawkins has to sacrifice himself to let Jake get away with the bomb and get it to Texas so it can be tested and prove that they were telling the truth. Texas would then swing their support to Columbus and defeat Cheyenne.

TVGuide.com: Does Hawkins mortally sacrifice himself, or just let himself get captured?
Barbee:
Well, he gets captured but he's also shot.... He's pretty messed up, and Jake feels like he's leaving him for dead. So we show you where he's taken and you see that the mission for the next season is, "We have to go rescue Hawkins and we have to stop these [bad] guys." When they see the alternate ending, it certainly completes the story from this season and tells you everything you need to know to have understood Season 2. It just doesn't point to that next mission. You meet John Smith, the guy who's been pulling the strings. It's [played by] Xander Berkeley (24). You've heard him on phone calls, and Hawkins is surprised by who he is and where he is. So you know who John Smith is, you know who planned the attacks, you know why, you know how....

TVGuide.com: Now it's just a matter of making things right in the United States?
Barbee:
Right. We would have moved on to the next level of a civil war between the Cheyenne government and the Columbus government. But if your readers do have any more burning questions, let me know!

TVGuide.com: If Jericho does find a new home on another channel, will Season 3 work off the alternate ending or the original cliff-hanger edit?
Barbee:
What we would do is take the information that is in the original ending, and that would be the opener for the next season. When we leave them at the end of the original ending, we've got Hawkins back and he's OK, but we still need to go fight the larger fight. I've always said that the alternate ending doesn't wrap up the series. It just lets you know that everyone is OK and it closes out this seven-episode arc. But we could definitely keep it going!

You heard the lady — if you have any burning questions coming out of last night's series finale, post them here.

I hope that another network will pick it up but it strikes me as a fairly expensive show to produce which only the major networks could afford, and the show is to "specialized" to appeal to their mass audiences. The smaller networks where most of the fans would go probably can't afford to pick it up. Although with Battlestar going away on Sci-Fi, and which is also an expensive show, who knows...? Maybe they'll step up ? .....and how much do they pay for those incessant monster movies on Saturdy night?.... Rolling Eyes
