Actor Bryan Batt
has been axed from the hit TV series Mad Men
. Batt has become known for his role as art director Salvatore Romano on the 1960s-set drama, which premiered in 2007.
He recently raised his concerns about losing his job after his TV character was fired - and his worst fears have come true.
TV bosses have now confirmed he won't be joining the rest of the cast when the show returns for its fourth season, but insist there is no bad blood between the two parties.
Series creator Matthew Weiner explains, "Losing Bryan was a tough moment for the show, but that's where we are. I know how people felt about Bryan. I obviously love working with him, and he has been an indelible character since the pilot. But I felt it was an expression of the times that he couldn't work there anymore."
