The silver lining in today's announcements is that the series C.K. produces will remain in production with C.K. being stripped of his producer role and potential compensation.
There seems practically no star big enough not to be toppled by allegations of sexual misdeeds in the post-Harvey Weinstein landscape. I'd be remiss to exclude the hurt that I've brought on people who I work with and have worked with who's professional and personal lives have been impacted by all of this, including projects now in production: the cast and crew of Better Things, Baskets, The Cops, One Mississippi, and I Love You, Daddy.
Adlon was a cast regular on Louis CK's popular FX show Louie, and he wrote and appeared on several episodes of Better Things, and has a creator and co-producer credit on the show.
"But what I learned later in life, too late, is that when you have power over another person, asking them to look at your dick isn't a question". It's so important. My family and I are devastated and in shock after the admission of abhorrent behavior by my friend and partner, Louis C.K. On top of that - and this must be said - he's a great talent, and that unfortunately matters in the calculus of which scumbag celebrities do and don't get exiled to professional Siberia.
On Friday, C.K. responded to the allegations, writing, "These stories are true". "'Cause I have learned that doing nothing, saying nothing, is not helpful".
And that is what this scandal has left me with; the suspicion that C.K.'s behavior was on display all along for "clear-eyed viewing", and that because I found him often amusing and insightful, I followed the critics who found ways to cast his jokes and scenes as productive disruptions rather than problematic fantasies and calculated confusions of the realities of gender inequality and sexual assault. In it, he says, "I have been remorseful of my actions". It's a predicament for them.
Meanwhile, Chloe Grace Moretz, who plays C.K.'s character's daughter in the film-the character is a teenager who engages in a relationship with a much older filmmaker-apparently dropped out of all I Love You, Daddy promotion two weeks ago, her publicist tells the L.A. Times, because Moretz "was made aware of numerous possible accusations".
"And I wielded that power irresponsibly", he said.
Rebecca Corry, one of the women who accused Louis C.K. of sexual misconduct, has publicly addressed the scandal for the first time in an interview with ABC News.
On Thursday, HBO announced that C.K. would not take part in its Night of Too Many Stars comedy benefit. I used to love Louie, but I don't think I will watch it again, because I don't think I could stand getting that close to the actions that informed its creation.
