Legends of Tomorrow Losing Fan-Favorite Actor

Garber has been a series regular since the beginning of Legends of Tomorrow, forming one half of Firestorm with Jefferson "Jax" Jackson, played by Franz Drameh.

Victor Garber is a Broadway veteran who most recently appeared in 2010's PRESENT LAUGHTER.

Unfortunately, it seems that Stein may not be on the show for much longer, as Deadline is reporting that Garber is set to leave the show soon.

Then again, cast turnover is the one constant on Legends of Tomorrow, which has always been meant to have a rotating group of characters. Actor David Hyde Pierce now plays the part in the hit Broadway revival, starring Bette Midler. According to the report, Garber may return to "LEGENDS" at a future date.

A Broadway run is a big undertaking, involving a six day a week schedule and 7-8 shows a week. That schedule is not conducive to shooting a television program on the other side of the continent.

I first heard rumblings about a potential Garber exit last spring as Legends of Tomorrow was wrapping its second season. And while Raymond (played by Robbie Amell) is gone, a series like Legends of Tomorrow would have no problem plucking him from a different time if need be since time travel is baked into its gimmick. Now lead by White Canary, the group will go up against former ally Rip Hunter and his newly established Time Bureau.

This story includes a detail about the current Season 3 of the CW's Legends of Tomorrow.
