It doesn't help his case when he's crowdfunding for some kind of expose.
I said the same thing on this thread a while back about dodgy accusations eventually derailing the voices of the real victims. As soon as some of these scumbags smell a payday they come put of the woodwork.

And thats what has happened with Feldman. I have serious doubts about his claims and i have a strong feeling that all his "stories" are probably stolen from conversations with Corey Haim, who i can believe was abused - the guy had serious demons looking at the downward spiral and end of his life. Feldman is just a limelight whore, and he is looking to try and cash out big with the current climate. I call total bullshit and say its a scam.

Totally agree here with all this stuff. Unfortunately everyone is guilty the minute something like this comes up. Whether they are or not.

I am actually shocked Weinstein has not been physically attacked in public more...

Yeeesh, although not entirely surprising. I'm guessing we're getting closer to finding out whether those skeevy "blind" items about Franco are really true.

In other news, this might only interest fans of Hong Kong cinema, but a previously-known allegation against veteran HK actor/producer/director Eric Tsang resurfaced this week, bringing some new allegations along with it:

With these numerous allegations against James Franco coming more into light, I'm wondering if Season 2 of The Deuce would even include him.

HBO released a statement that they’ve had no complaints.

It's maybe fortunate for him that this story dropped after his Golden Globe win. Oscar voting closes tomorrow, so his likely Best Actor Nomination is unlikely to be affected by these reports.

Without knowing the original film or the person he's portraying, his acting was excellent, IMO.

Yeah, he's great in it, both as an impression and as a performance.

Which really makes you wonder, why this happened now and not when The Disaster Artist was getting released. It just feels too opportunistic.

Plot twist: Hugh Jackman is behind the accusations.

2 new Blind Items about James

If you think that actor who recently won a big award is in trouble now, he's in for a rude awakening. Several men are ready to come forward with their accusations of sexual assault, sexual harassment, and even videotaping a sexual encounter. He won't be able to laugh off these allegations. James Franco

Apparently on more than one occasion, this A list mostly movie actor forced himself on this former back in the day A list mostly movie actress who has not acted in some time. One of the times was witnessed by someone who walked in on the pair in his dressing room. The actress was topless and on her knees and as soon as the door opened, the actress made a break for it as fast as she could. The actor laughed it off. James Franco/Ally Sheedy

How the fuck would she put up with that if it was the play he recently directed her in? I am not sure I can buy that one.

What projects have Sheedy and Franco worked on together? Seems like an odd person for Franco to go after.

Sheedy and Franco worked together in his off-Broadway theater directorial debut, "The Long Shrift," in 2014.

LAPD detectives will be sitting down with the L.A. County District Attorney next month to go over a huge number of files involving alleged sexual misconduct ... and there are 3 famous people who will be at the top of the pile based on the number of complaints ... Harvey Weinstein, James Toback and Brett Ratner.

Sources familiar with the investigation tell TMZ the LAPD's Sexual Assault Section is now "winding down" its investigation, but there are still some interviews that have not been conducted and reports to write.

One law enforcement source tells us detectives are stunned that they were able to get statements from some of the people accused of sexual misconduct. Turns out early on -- before some of the suspects got criminal defense lawyers -- their entertainment lawyers drafted statements signed by their clients denying the claims.

One law enforcement source put it this way ... "These [entertainment] lawyers cared more about image than jail. They should have never let their clients talk."

That said ... our sources reiterate most of the cases involve 1 on 1 situations ... meaning there are only 2 people involved and without witnesses these cases are hard to prosecute.

Down the road ... we've learned one of the cases at the Beverly Hills PD involves a man who met a woman, they dated, married and divorced. She now claims he raped her on the first date. A law enforcement source called the case "problematic."

Do you somehow doubt it? She called him out by name on Twitter and said he did something to her.

Sounds like Ronan Farrow is reeling in another big fish...

"The person they are investigating is as big as Harvey Weinstein! This is going to shock the industry!!!"
