UPDATE: Deadline.com reports McDonough has been replaced with ‘JAG’ star David James Elliott.

Call Neal McDonough the anti-Tiger: The TV actor recently gave up his part on the new ABC show ‘Scoundrels’ just three days into filming, because the script called for him to be in a sex scene — something the married Catholic father-of-three has made clear he won’t do, RadarOnline.com has learned.

McDonough — a talented 44-year-old actor who has appeared in projects like ‘Band of Brothers,’ ‘Desperate Housewives,’ ‘Boomtown’ and ‘Medical Investigation’ — has steadfastly refused to do sex scenes of any kind throughout his career.

The ‘Scoundrels’ script called for him to be in a sex scene with sultry actress Virginia Madsen, and leaving the show might have cost himself up to a cool $1 million.

ABC has called the split a “casting change.”

Said an insider: “It has cost him jobs, but the man is sticking to his principles.”
