Television / Why Hollywood won't cast Chad Michael Murray anymore / He's still working, but who's watching?

We must admit, watching Murray during those steamy drama-filled moments as OTH's bad boy got us through some long weeks, but subsequent roles have largely gone unnoticed. The actor actually hasn't stopped working; it just seems like he did. Have you ever seen Caveman (2013) or Outlaws and Angels (2016)? Don't feel bad. Lots of people haven't, and the critics who did watch those flicks weren't pleased either.

In 2013, Murray managed to claim a featured role on Chosen, an online web series distributed through Crackle, which is owned by Sony Pictures Entertainment. Although the show has survived three seasons, it's still struggling to maintain its foothold within a market that is saturated by strong original series on YouTube, Hulu, Amazon, and Netflix. It was definitely wise for Murray to nab the role of Jacob Orr on Chosen. Generally, being on a television series at least guarantees consistent work for a period of time (as long as the show remains successful). However, what Murray's career desperately needed was a more high-profile gig with a more popular show on a major network.

Perhaps that's what Murray was trying to achieve when he landed the role of Jack Thompson on the first season of ABC's Agent Carter in 2015, but that show didn't survive beyond its sophomore season, squashing hopes of a mainstream comeback.
