Jesse started filming for Escape Plan 2 this week in Atlanta, Georgia! The project is a sequel to the 2013 action film, Escape Plan. Jesse is co-starring in the film along with Sylvester Stallone, Dave Bautista, and 50 Cent. This is really great news so congrats to Jesse for another project in the works!
Yesterday, Sylvester Stallone posted this video to his Instagram, where Jesse can be seen on set! He already mentioned the possibility of a 3rd film. Let’s hope we get to see one!
I’d like to wish Jesse a Happy Birthday! Today is his 36th birthday. Make sure you stop by his Twitter and Instagram to wish him Happy Birthday! #HappyBirthdayJesse
After Monday night’s shocking ending, which showed the death of beloved character Christopher Ewing, fans are wondering–is Jesse Metcalfe leaving Dallas for good?
According to an article on Entertainment Weekly’s Inside TV, the decision was made to kill off a character that the audience loved, and by process of elimination that left Christopher.
Jesse issued this statement in regards to his departure:
“In classic Dallas fashion the producers and writers needed a season ending shocker. After three great years, I was ready to move on and pursue other projects. It culminated in the perfect opportunity to surprise fans and deliver that shocking twist. I enjoyed my time on Dallas and am grateful for the opportunity to work with Warner Bros and TNT, and I wish the cast and crew all the very best!”
There is also an interview in which Cynthia Cidre, the show’s executive producer, talks about Christopher’s death. So, sounds like it is all real. Sorry to disappoint you guys! But, this does seem to leave Jesse open for some potentially awesome future projects. Let’s hope we get to see him in something else, soon!
