Jessica Simpson’s father and manager, Crazy Joe Simpson has fired troubled Prison Break star Lane Garrison from his daughter’s latest movie project.

Garrison was a troubled youth in Texas when he moved in with his family’s minister – Joe Simpson. Lane and Jessica Simpson became friends.

Even though he is still close to the family, Joe Simpson had to let him go from the film – because he was set to play a character who was continually drunk.

How funny. Sometimes art imitates life. Now all we need is for Mischa Barton to play some spoiled, annoying and anorexic brat on TV. Oh, wait…

Simpson is currently filming the movie Blonde Ambition with Luke Wilson in Shreveport, La. Ashlee Simpson, who is not involved in this story at all, is pretending to sing and being generally worthless somewhere.

Garrison was involved in a car crash earlier this month that killed Vahagn Setian, 17, and injured two other passengers. Alcohol is thought to have been a factor in the crash.
