One day after TMZ released an audio recording of Stephen Collins allegedly confessing to child molestation, the former "7th Heaven" star was pulled from an upcoming episode of "Scandal."
"We can confirm that we will not be airing any footage with Stephen Collins," ABC said in a statement to HuffPost Entertainment. Collins had tweeted about filming the episode last month.
Collins had previously appeared in Season 2 of "Scandal" when he guest starred as reporter Reed Wallace in "Happy Birthday, Mr. President."
"Ted 2," which is currently in production, also fired Collins after the NYPD opened an investigation into the actor's alleged crimes.
