See, this is my question. Is he mentally ill, a family trait or is he depressed over his son's death and the anniversary of that death but never really sought the proper help?
Which would get their asses sued!
So sorry to hear what Kristoff is going through. From my intern experiences way back when, I can tell you Kristoff is by far the nicest, most welcoming, friendliest person of the entire cast. He was by far my favorite actor to interact with. What a difficult time this must be in his life. Whatever is best for him, whether it be time off from the show, outpatient or inpatient treatment, I hope he is able to overcome this battle.
It kind of breaks my heart that this info is coming out now and, from the sounds of things, against KSJ's and his family's wishes. The worst part is, any small mental health issue can tar you in the workplace. Personally, even though what happened with KSJ is scary and frightening, I don't think he is certifiable. He is grieving, in a bad place emotionally. But there is nothing in his actions and demeanour over the years to suggest that KSJ has severe mental issues on a daily basis. He has dealt with so much in his life from the sound of things, but it also sounds like he has been able to work many of those issues out before.
So I have to ask, do people think Angelica McDaniel passed this info to her husband who leaked it on purpose? If so, why? Why is CBS 'briefing' against an actor who has been a company man for years and always supportive of the show? Do they want him to take a pay-cut? Cut the guarantees in his contract? Force him out altogether?
