Christian actor expelled from Hollywood for refusing to compromise his beliefs

Actor Neal McDonough recently admitted that being shunned by Hollywood inspired him to create his own production firm. McDonough is most recognized for his roles as Malcolm Beck in Yellowstone, Timothy ‘Dum Dum’ Dugan in Captain America: The First Avenger, and most recently General James Harding in Project Blue Book.

The devoted Christian actor of Yellowstone said that he was blacklisted from Hollywood in 2010. After being sacked from ABC’s Scoundrels TV show for refusing to do certain sequences, such as kissing and adulterous ones, he “lost basically everything” as a result.

The actor claimed that during this challenging time in his career, his faith kept him optimistic. “I recall getting down on my knees and pleading with God, asking, ‘Why have you forgotten about me? Why am I receiving such harsh punishment? He remembered. The moment McDonough said those words, “and as soon as those words came out of my mouth, I realized what self-absorbed questions those were,” he said.

I’ve received so much from God. Everybody faces difficulties in life. I ought to be appreciative and thankful for all the blessings I have received, the actor continued. This is not the first time McDonough has opened up about his refusal to compromise his beliefs; he has previously discussed it, according to Bounding into Comics.

“I won’t mention the Lord’s name in vain, and then I won’t kiss another woman,” McDonough pledged in January 2020. “Sexual scenes aren’t my thing. And I thought, oh, there are already so many sex scenes, and because I’m in my fifties, I’m not sure if anyone wants to see me engage in such activities anyhow. However, it depends on my comfort level. Then, he said, “I’m not very comfortable doing that.

“And I guess that’s probably why I play so many villainous characters, because I love acting, and I’m really good at it,” McDonough declared. “It’s a God-given talent, so for me to have a career, I have to figure out creatively and smartly and wisely how I can keep doing what I do,” he explained.

McDonough would go on to further clarify to The Christian Post earlier this month that while he is unwilling to do certain moments, he makes it a point to guarantee that he is remembered through his wicked performances. I’ve played a lot of various roles and done a lot of different things, and in some of them, I play dreadful villains in a lot of the things that I do. I also won’t do kissing scenes, so I have to be the best villain out there, the actor admitted.

His wife of over 20 years, Ruvé, is primarily to blame for his reluctance to kiss his co-stars, according to McDonough. He admitted, “These lips are meant for one woman,” adding that since the couple has begun their movie-making enterprise, kissing scenes won’t be an issue. According to the actor, he now has “that opportunity because Ruvé and I are doing it ourselves, and are so blessed to have companies that support us and back us and want to make more films and TV shows, or reality shows, or any kind of show that gives glory to [God].”

“Not just to make a movie, but to do a movie that actually gives Him glory – that’s our goal. And that’s what we’re after, and we’re very fortunate to be able to do it,” he elaborated.
