Invincible quietly recast Ezra Miller, for reasons you can probably guess

Things have calmed down since Ezra Miller was in the headlines for all the wrong reasons back in 2022, but it's not a shock to see they're getting fewer acting gigs.

The second season of Invincible is almost at an end on Amazon Prime Video, which is sad, because the show has been crushing it. The animated superhero drama is full of heartfelt storytelling, shocking violence, and a voice cast so impressive you'd swear that Jeff Bezos had something on these people. Steven Yeun, Sandra Oh, Seth Rogan, Zachary Quinto, Mahershala Ali, Zazie Beetz, Jason Mantzoukas, J.K. Simmons...there are multiple Oscar and Emmy nominees in this series about a superhero trying to protect Earth from a group of mustache-sporting alien fascists. It's amazing.

But having high-profile actors can have drawbacks. Take the case of actor Ezra Miller, who a few years ago was one of Hollywood's hottest rising stars. Then, before the debut of their movie The Flash, Miller was in the headlines after getting involved in a number of break-ins, fights, and more criminal behavior committed all over the Unites States, from the east coast to the Hawaiian Islands. After that, executives at Warner Bros. Discovery started to pull back on Miller's projects, and other studios have followed suit.

In the first season of Invincible, Miller voiced D.A. Sinclair, a mad scientist who was taking people and turning them into mutant cyborgs. Sinclair appears again in the most recent episode of the show, "I'm Not Going Anywhere," where we find out that a shady government operative Cecil Stedman — who's nominally a good guy even if his methods are often very questionable — has drafted Sinclair to make mutant cyborgs for Uncle Sam. Sinclair was only around for a moment, this time voiced by voice actor Eric Bauza, according to The A.V. Club.

Bauza is a veteran voice actor who also appears in X-Men '97 over on Disney+. It's not a shock that Amazon cut Miller loose, and if that had to happen I'm glad a workhorse like Bauza is getting a gig out of it.

It's unclear if Sinclair will appear on Invincible again, although this show tends to leave no thread dangling, so I'm betting we'll see him again at some point. Will it be in the season 2 finale, which airs this Thursday? We'll be watching.
