The fallout continues for actor Jonathan Majors following his assault conviction in December.
Majors, 34, was tapped to play controversial NBA legend Dennis Rodman in the movie “48 Hours In Vegas,” Variety confirmed.
48 Hours In Vegas documents Rodman’s notorious trip to Las Vegas in the middle of the Chicago Bulls’ 1998 NBA finals.
Majors was dropped from the movie after he was convicted December 18 on a single misdemeanor count of assaulting his ex-girlfriend Grace Jabbari.
The jury acquitted him of two other counts.
Marvel Studios also dropped Majors from future projects as Kang Da Conqueror on the same day of his conviction.
Lionsgate backed away from the project, releasing it back to the producers to find a new production partner.
Rodman is one of the film’s executive producers.
Majors defended himself in an exclusive sit-down interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America” earlier this week.
The “Creed III” star said he was “shocked” at the guilty verdict.
“I’m standing there and the verdict comes down. I say, ‘How is that possible?’ Based off the evidence – based off the prosecution’s evidence, let alone our evidence – how is that possible?”
Majors faces 1 year in jail when he’s sentenced on February 6.
