Alex Rodriguez is getting cut from an animated movie

Not a good role model for kids, apparently.

Thanks to ongoing steroid controversy, Alex Rodriguez, pictured above, will no longer portray an animated version of himself in the film Henry and Me about a boy battling cancer. From the Post:

"We have investors that we have to answer to, just like the Yankees," said executive producer Ray Negron, a longtime Yankees adviser, whose children's books served as the inspiration for the film. "If ownership decides that this is a direction that we have to go, meaning our investors, we have to listen to ownership. That's just the way it is. It works just like a team. It's the same thing."

A-Rod's character will be replaced by Hideki Matsui, who originally had the part. No word yet on whether Matsui will also be made to look like a hybrid of Mark Teixeira and The Rock.
