    Boardwalk Empire Exclusive: Paz de la Huerta Not Returning For Season 3

    http://www.tvline.com/2012/02/boardwalk-empire-paz-de-la-huerta-fired/

    Boardwalk Empire has whacked Paz de la Huerta.

    TVLine has learned exclusively that the HBO mob hit has opted not to pick up the actress’ Season 3 contract option, which means viewers have likely seen the last of her character, Lucy Danziger.

    Introduced in Season 1 as Nucky’s (Steve Buscemi) unhinged mistress, Lucy spent much of Season 2 pregnant and shacked up with Michael Shannon’s Van Alden (the baby daddy). Shortly after giving birth, she went on a formula run and never returned, leaving the baby in Van Alden’s care.

    An HBO rep declined to comment for this story.

    De la Huerta’s exit brings to four the number of original Empire cast members not returning for Season 3; she joins Michael Pitt, Dabney Coleman and Aleksa Palladino (all of whom were killed off in Season 2′s final hours).

    To fill the void, producers are introducing several new characters, including a rival to Nucky played by Bobby Cannavale.

    [aside: this really didn't deserve a thread of its own, but I knew someone who would be soooo happy with the news, so here it is!:)]

    Even though she was nude a lot, Ms. Stanky was too big of a turn off. Bleccchh. I'm glad she's gone.
