NEW YORK, March 30 (UPI) -- Jon Heder's publicist has confirmed the actor dropped out of a new U.S. sitcom Will Ferrell is producing for Comedy Central.

E! News reported the "Napoleon Dynamite" star's departure came two days before production was to begin, leaving the show's future unclear.

Heder and Ferrell previously collaborated on the big-screen comedy "Blades of Glory."

"Comedy Central, Gary Sanchez Productions and Jon Heder have mutually decided to part ways over creative differences with the character," Heder's representatives said in a statement.

Heder was to play a financial wizard who loses his job and moves back home with his parents, E! said.

The series was to co-star Ferrell's former "Saturday Night Live" collaborators Chris Parnell and Horatio Sanz.
