Movie people who have been accused of sexual harassment or assault:

Harvey Weinstein
Harry Knowles
Devin Faraci
Andy Signore
[I'm probably missing some]

The Andy Signore one came out today. At least 3 women have come out telling their stories about him. This one is kind of striking to me because I just heard him on the Slash Filmcast a couple weeks ago. They brought him on as a guest because the three regular hosts all loved mother! and needed a dissenting opinion. I was not impressed with his appearance — he had barely anything of substance to say and could not make a compelling argument. Maybe I also had a sixth sense that something was off about him, but that's probably giving me too much credit.

Anyway, here are some of the complaints against him:

Update: David Chen (the host) just addressed this head-on. This makes me very happy...

I vaguely remember having seen a headline last year about Jordan Vogt-Roberts being attacked in a bar in Vietnam, but I had no idea the extent of it. These were seriously dangerous guys involved, and he's really lucky not to be dead right now.

i believe i read this somewhere else but it didn't click with me until AICN, for whatever reason--

The Future is Now! Tony Kaye Casts Robot Lead In Next Feature

2ND BORN is a sequel to 1ST BORN, an indie comedy directed by Ali Atshani. It starred Val Kilmer, Tom Berenger, Greg Grunberg, Jay Abdo, Taylor Cole, Reza Sixo Safai, William Baldwin, Denise Richards and Robert Knepper.

The new picture centers around a couple,  “Iranian born Ben (Safai) and American Kate, whose complicated first pregnancy forces their extended family, from differing backgrounds, to find common ground for the sake of the baby.” If you couldn’t guess, it’s an indie rom-com.

i don't really care about robot actors. it's when they become writers i'll be like "well wait, maybe let's slow down"
