Nonetheless, following an investigation, Disney+ reportedly decided to fireside the actor, who starred in the unique movie 25 years ago.
A source told the publication: ‘Speer’s sacking has absolutely rocked the solid and crew. But he’d already been warned for supposedly walking around his trailer naked.’
They continued: ‘He claimed his towel had slipped from his waist when he opened the door to a girl runner. But there was no sign of anything to cover his modesty, and he apparently fully exposed himself to the girl before beckoning her inside.
‘The girl was horrified and didn’t consider entering his trailer for a second. She was upset, after which indignant, and had no hesitation in reporting his behaviour.’
