A-Rod Cut From An Animated Movie

There is an animated movie called Henry and Me which has been in production for several years now. Its about a boy battling cancer who, over the course of the film, meets several New York Yankees legends who provide inspiration. It's star studded, not only with ballplayers and members of the Yankees organization but also actors like Richard Gere and singers like Paul Simon.

But it doesnt have A-Rod. At least not anymore, reports the New York Post:

Rodriguez, who did his own voice work while appearing in the upcoming animated film Henry & Me, will be removed from the films final version due to fears from investors that the Yankees third baseman, who is currently appealing a 211-game suspension for his alleged use of performance-enhancing drugs, will hurt the marketability and profitability of the picture.
