I guess T.J. Miller took being nixed from Silicon Valley pretty hard, the actor, also known for his roles in Deadpool and Cloverfield has just been released on $100,000 bond for allegedly making a false bomb threat. The charge specifically was for "intentionally conveying" false information.
If it wasn't that he was taking the break from Mike Judge's Silicon Valley, it could also have been related to the reason the hit show had to let him go. Apparently Miller would show up late, sometimes hours late and even then was apparently high or drunk. So the boozing, bud burning lackadaisical "bro" from the show was apparently method acting? Perhaps, or maybe there's truth to his claims that it has more to do with his hectic schedule which included late night comedy club shows that kept him from getting proper sleep before work.
This latest event almost sounds like something pulled from the show itself, Miller called the police from the Amtrak train to report a female passenger with "a bomb in her bag." If found guilty, the charge could result in up to five years in prison.
Miller was quoted as saying, "I am worried for everyone on that train, someone has to check that lady out," when he called police. Lending more weight to the theory that he wasn't just working too hard at the comedy club circuit the nights before Silicon Valley filming, Amtrak officials say he seemed noticably intoxicated in Washington and even had to be put off the train in New York for being overly intoxicated.
In addition to all this, he evidently got into a heated exchange with another woman on the train. Though he's been released on bail, he hasn't yet made any public comment. The case is currently being investigated by FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force, the Connecticut State Police, Metropolitan Transportation Authority Police Department, Amtrak Police Department, and Westport Police Department.
