It seems like Timothy Olyphant was supposed to make an appearance in the upcoming installation of 'The Avengers' series. The multitalented actor made this odd revelation on Conan recently.

The 'Santa Clarita Diet' star appeared on the talk show on Monday, and revealed to Conan O'Brein that he had bad news to share with the host and his audience.

"I do need to announce that the cameo I shot for The Avengers Infinity War' has been cut." said Timothy.

Genuinely surprise, Conan pushed for an explanation. "Can you tell us anything about it?" asked a concerned Conan. "I played a character called Captain Japan," admitted Timothy. 

Cue the eyerolls, because Tim's on his weird rants again. Just last week, the actor deliberately lamented to Seth Meyers about their own friendship and its nature on 'Late Night With Seth Meyers', but not before he bashed the host's introduction of him. Now it looks like it was Conan's turn to face the absurdity. 

Timothy gave Conan a very wild backstory about his unheard of character. The actor insisted that the character was "really big in Japan". The obvious snafu here is the fact that Timothy is the whitest man anyone can come across. But the actor was more than happy to provide a strange backstory for his made up hero. The gist of it being, he dated a Japanese girl, was involved in a nuclear reactor accident, and has very limited knowledge of the Japanese language.

If you're as confused as we are, we feel you. The interview didn't just end there. Timothy realized that he had forgotten to plug in his Netflix show 'The Santa Clarita Diet'. This time, the actor used his time to throw around a few buzzwords to see if the subject was sticky enough.

Timothy stated that he fully supported the gender pay equality movement, happily lapping up the audience's encouraging applause. The reason behind this support was based on a 'feeling' he got. The feeling? That his co-star Drew Barrymore is making more money than him.

Eugh, make it stop.
