I mean, I guess it's good to talk about these problems in the workplace. But I have a friend who works at Dominos and has a similar problem with her boss. I suppose that's less newsworthy.

I've been nice to my employees (I have a small business) before and basically turn into their door mat. It is good for about two months, and deteriorates from there. I don't quite have my head wrapped around how to deal with people.
He was known to be a mean boss. Newsworthy is the incident were he badly injures his assistant.

I think Franco is still gettting work and Casey Affleck has done several projects since he was accused of some chicanery.

Franco hasn't done anything since The Deuce ended. He has a voice credit on something and some other credit on some other bullshit. He's done for the time being.

That Rudin person sounds like a piece of shit. He should have been arrested for those assaults, but too many people wanted to "work in this town again".

Who’s getting a “pay day” for speaking out against sexual harassment in Hollywood?

He's done one of those self-directed movies he normally makes 3 of of a year. I guess some of those will follow.

The pandemic could be a factor for that too?

I was looking up Garret Dilahunt and what he was doing next, and one of those films is directed by James Franco. Also, I saw an item that Franco has settled a sexual misconduct lawsuit.

Looks like Mickey from Doctor Who has been pretty much canceled:

BAFTA has suspended UK film and TV actor, director and producer Noel Clarke following a bombshell expose in the Guardian which contains allegations of inappropriate behaviour from more than 20 women. Clarke’s UK managers 42 have also dropped the actor, Deadline can confirm.

“In light of the allegations of serious misconduct regarding Noel Clarke in the Guardian this evening, BAFTA has taken the decision to suspend his membership and the Outstanding British Contribution to Cinema award immediately and until further notice,” BAFTA’s statement read.

The Guardian article contains both on and off-the-record testimony from numerous women who have worked with Clarke on a variety of film and TV projects, with allegations ranging from inappropriate touching to unwanted sexual images and secretly filming an actress naked during an audition. Clarke firmly denies the allegations in the article. Deadline has contacted his reps for comment.

Only two weeks ago, Clarke was the recipient of BAFTA’s Outstanding British Contribution To Cinema award. The org confirmed that award has also been suspended. According to the Guardian investigation, BAFTA was aware of the allegations against Clarke prior to giving him the award and decided to go ahead despite the prospect of the article coming out.

The news has sent shockwaves through the Brit industry. Clarke has always been regarded as a fiery personality but he has been applauded throughout his career for his staunch commitment to furthering diversity and representation in the business. His credits range from Kidulthood to popular series Bulletproof and Doctor Who, this week he is appearing in the ITV drama Viewpoint. He co-owns the All3Media-backed production banner Unstoppable Entertainment with Jason Maza.

Those on the record in the article include Gina Powell, who worked for Clarke as a producer for three years, and the actress Jahannah James, who appeared in the film Brotherhood, which Clarke directed and starred in.

In a statement to the Guardian, Clarke said, “In a 20-year career, I have put inclusivity and diversity at the forefront of my work and never had a complaint made against me. If anyone who has worked with me has ever felt uncomfortable or disrespected, I sincerely apologise. I vehemently deny any sexual misconduct or wrongdoing and intend to defend myself against these false allegations.”

The CW has pulled all 3 seasons of Clarke's UK series Bulletproof off their free streaming app after these allegations. The show airs on Sky in the UK, but the CW has the US rights.

The 4th season is also now on hold in the UK

Not that you could really watch them. The episodes were in rotation. Beginning of season 2 was missing for months every time I checked.

So far, everything seems to stem from a Guardian story and reports directly to them.

Seth Rogan has come all the way around and now says he will never work with James Franco again.

Understandable. Too bad since their movies were hilarious (IMO). I'd imagine James won't be seeing much work in the future.

It doesn’t seem as concrete as “never.”

"I also look back to that interview in 2018 where I comment that I would keep working with James, and the truth is that I have not and I do not plan to right now,"

Kevin Spacey is making a comeback. Franco Nero hired him for a role in his movie filming in Italy.

I am a Spacy fan and he was fun to watch.

If Mel Gibson can come back why not him?

As a movie fan I'd be happy to see Kevin Spacey again, he's one of the best living actors, but is alleged transgressions are definitely more serious than drunken outbursts.

I still can't tell if him taking that role is like an intentional big middle finger to this whole thing or just some kind of weird coincidence. I mean a sex-crime detective? As your first role coming back?

https://www.insider.com/kevin-spacey...-return-2021-5
The disgraced actor Kevin Spacey is set to return to the big screen as a detective investigating the case of an elderly man wrongly suspected of pedophilia in his first film role nearly four years after he was first accused of sexual misconduct.

He can follow Gibson's path and play the villain in an EXPENDABLES sequel or a Craig Zahler movie.

I did not follow that closely but wasn't he blackmailed in that case and the accusers did not want to present evidence or did not have a strong case?
