The Ausiello Report, which first reported the firing on Thursday afternoon, has all of the details - and 144 comments at last count! - so check out the story there. But in a nutshell? ABC isn't picking up the actor's option for next season, and Isaiah is a William Holden fan. UPDATE: Ausiello got some rather illuminating details from Isaiah's rep. Check it out.
