Charlie Rose Suspended Following Sexual Harassment Report

-For the past couple of weeks, there’s been rumblings that multiple newspapers were working on a sexual harassment story about a famous guy with a “nice” reputation that would shock everyone. Is that person Charlie Rose? The Washington Post just revealed that eight women are accusing him of harassing them with nudity, groping and lewd calls — and another publication is reportedly working on a similar story. CBS immediately suspended him following the report, and PBS halted production and distribution of his talk show.

-This story got a bit buried on the weekend but here’s Hilarie Burton and other stars of One Tree Hill detailing showrunner Mark Schwahn‘s harassment of them on set. It’s terrifying.

-Not one, but two excellent profiles of Armie Hammer landed today.  There’s Vulture’s, where he explains that he doesn’t get the genius of Call Me By Your Name’s dance scene. And then there’s The Hollywood Reporter’s profile, where he dares bring up Casey Affleck.  (I also really appreciate that THR’s photo shoot features a lot of barefoot shots. I spent the entirety of CMBYN staring at that man’s feet…)

-Meanwhile, has any male comedian besides Jason Alexander spoken out yet? I’m really disappointed by a lot of my faves.
