Neal McDonough has been vocal about his refusal to do intimate scenes with anyone apart from his wife, mainly due to religious reasons. Because of his ideals, he was fired from the set of Scoundrels for not getting intimate with costar Virginia Madsen, and he replaced by David James Elliott. Though this meant walking away from a huge paycheck, he's stated that he regrets nothing. He further explained that everything he does, he does in devotion to God. Killing and violence on screen is acceptable since it's clearly fake, but bedding another woman onscreen isn't the same thing. His kids also have a lot to do with his no-kissing policy. This is completely understandable since no father wants to answer awkward questions about getting it on, even with mom.
