Jay Ellis Photoshops Himself Into 'Insecure' Cast Photo After It's Revealed He Won't be in Season 3

Jay Ellis is making sure Insecure fans don't forget about him.

The 36-year-old actor -- who portrays Lawrence on the series -- did not attend HBO's Insecure Fest in Los Angeles, California, over the weekend and called out his absence in a humorous Instagram post on Tuesday.

Finding a group shot of the cast from the event, Ellis photoshopped himself into the pic along with the caption: "Heard I missed something last weekend... fixed it."

The post comes just days after the show's star and creator, Issa Rae, talked to ET's Courtney Tezeno at Insecure Fest about Ellis' character not being in the upcoming season.

In the season two finale of Insecure, Rae's character, Issa Dee, and Lawrence break up once and for all. "They had a great conversation. They closed that chapter pretty well. We really want to emulate real life," Rae noted. "You know, when you close your conversations, you don't need to see your exes all the time. Sometimes your exes disappear. So, we just want to remain true to what happened and we want to try new things this season."

In February, Ellis -- whose name is not featured in the credits for this upcoming season -- also addressed whether Lawrence would return. "The way it ended, you wouldn't think that I would be around," he teased to ET's Denny Directo. "It's a real part of life when you have that kind of closure, you typically never see that person again."

The season three premiere of Insecure airs Aug. 12 at 10:30 p.m. ET on HBO.
