  • 3/21/06: Issac Hayes Still On South Park - Did Not Quit the Show

    Isaac Hayes did not quit his gig voicing South Park's Chef over some Scientology flap reports TV Guide.

    FoxNews.com has deemed it "ridiculous" that the singer, who has been recovering from a stroke suffered in mid-January, would all of a sudden turn against the show for poking fun at his religion. Those close to Hayes are said to be "mystified" by the statement released March 13 and attributed to him.

    Meanwhile he Scientology-skewering "Trapped in a Closet" episode, pulled last week amidst allegations that Tom Cruise had intervened, will air this Wednesday.

      Matt & Trey said themselves on Letterman that he quit. But then there's this:

      From the Comedy Central Press Release:
      He's Back!!! Chef Returns to South Park

      The launch of "South Park’s" 10th season is marked by the triumphant homecoming of school chef, Jerome McElroy. "The Return of Chef!," premieres Wednesday, March 22 at 10:00 p.m., only Comedy Central.
      The town is jolted out of a case of the doldrums when Chef suddenly reappears. While Stan, Kyle, Kenny and Cartman are thrilled to have their old friend back, they notice that something about chef seems different. When Chef’s strange behavior starts getting him in trouble, the boys pull out all the stops to save him.
      You can see a teaser for the episode at http://southparkstudios.com/

      Seems to be Issac doing the voice.

      A lot of people are convinced Issac has quit and that they recorded this a while ago. There's heavy speculation that this episode will rip on Issac for qutting. (http://southparkstudios.com/fans/bbs...ic.php?t=18657)

      Either way, I'm watching.

            Matt & Trey confirmed on David Letterman last week that he did indeed quit the show.

            This new episode is either going to make fun of him or send him off nicely for all his years there and it is most likely going to make fun of him "When Chef’s strange behavior starts getting him in trouble"

            EDIT: Just found this from CNN.com (a little more relaible website):

            'South Park's' Chef back -- but not Hayes

            LOS ANGELES, California (Reuters) -- Soul singer Isaac Hayes may have quit his job as the voice of Chef on "South Park" after a disagreement over religion, but his character will live on when the satiric cable TV cartoon returns to Comedy Central this week, the network said Monday.

            Hayes and his "South Park" alter ego are at the center of an ongoing flap over an episode last November that poked fun at the Church of Scientology and its celebrity adherents, including actor Tom Cruise.

            The tenth season of "South Park" will launch Wednesday with a new episode titled "The Return of Chef!", marking the "triumphant homecoming" of lusty school cafeteria cook James "Chef" McElroy to the show, the network said in a statement.

            Hayes, 63, himself a follower of Scientology, surprised producers a week ago by announcing he was leaving the series because he objected to its "inappropriate ridicule" of religion, though he made no reference to the show's spoof of Scientology last fall.

            Two days later, Comedy Central abruptly pulled a scheduled repeat of that episode, titled "Trapped in the Closet." Sources close to the show said the rerun was canceled after Cruise threatened to boycott promotion of his upcoming film, "Mission: Impossible III," for sister studio Paramount Pictures. (Watch why Cruise was allegedly so upset -- 2:56)

            Representatives for Cruise and the studio denied this. But "South Park" creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone fed the furor by issuing a statement suggesting the Church of Scientology was behind the decision to scrap the rerun.

            The network has also noted that various religions including Christianity, Judaism and Islam have been targets of the show's satire since its inception.

            The network statement announcing Chef's return for the "South Park" season premiere this Wednesday was a clear sign that Parker and Stone planned to use the Hayes imbroglio as further grist for their comedy.

            "Knowing these guys as I do, I can't imagine that they're not going to do just that," Comedy Central spokesman Tony Fox told Reuters. He added that the producers routinely "turn around" new episodes in just six days, leaving them ample time to incorporate last week's dust-up into their season debut.

            Fox said he assumed someone besides Hayes would supply Chef's voice. Details of the new episode were vague.

            But a network synopsis said the fictional town of South Park, Colorado, is "jolted out of a case of the doldrums when Chef suddenly reappears," leading to new antics by the group of foul-mouthed fourth graders who are the show's stars.

            "While Stan, Kyle, Kenny and Cartman are thrilled to have their old friend back, they notice that something about Chef seems different. When Chef's strange behavior starts getting him in trouble, the boys pull out all the stops to save him," the network said.

            "South Park," launched in 1997, remains the highest-rated series on Comedy Central, which like Paramount, is owned by Viacom

                      Great!!

                      Although I'm not taking this as 100%. I'd still like him to be on SP, but if that statement last week was fake, then who's to say this story isn't.
                      LOL @ You
