Prior to his walk-off, Mulroney spoke to the hosts about his lengthy career in Hollywood as well as his family, his previous roles, and the new work he has been focusing on for Disney+. The actor’s new show, Secret Invasion, is a superhero action series that is expected to be very popular among Americans.

After his walk-off on The View, Mulroney shared a statement to explain his actions, “Since I have such respect for The View, a news program with a heart, it was there that I felt comfortable enough to draw attention to the ongoing WGA strike for fair wages and working hours, as I find it incredibly important to continue to support the union.”

The View has managed to stay on the air because it mostly employs people who are not part of the union. The writer’s strike has been going on for more than fifty days as the union tries to strike an agreement with Hollywood executives.
