Given the Weinstein stuff, apparently Selma Blair & Rachel McAdams have come out against Director James Toback now regarding sexual assault.

The group, which included Blair, worked with Los Angeles Times reporter Glenn Whipp on a story that broke on October 22, citing 38 women in total who alleged sexual harassment suffered at the hands of Toback. Since then, the number of accusers has risen to more than 200 women—including Blair and Oscar-nominated actress Rachel McAdams.
.

I can see more and more Directors/Big Wigs getting named to be honest.

Is that the big voice guy?

No, this was the guy who created Honest Trailers.

Though the Epic Voice Guy apparently did some douchy stuff following a girl around at a con a few years back as a prank saying lewd stuff about her on a wireless microphone. Nothing as serious as the other guy, but more in the "this is what women have to deal with and guys brush off as ok behavior" kinda deal.

He's a pedophile so clearly he should be under a lot more than fire.

The way the media is now only talking about him being gay and ignoring that he admitted to doing pedophile shit...totally fucking disgraceful.

Always been a big Spacey fan but sexually assaulting a 14 year old is gross and shouldn't be swept under the rug at all by the media.

Yeah, this is some Frank Underwood shit. I'm sure this was his intent when he released that statement.

I guess Adam Blampied from Whatculture/whatever the new website is decided to take a leave of absence after he admitted that he used his status and internet celebrity to get girls to send him nude pictures. I mean I understand that sexual assault and harassment is awful and that everyone is rightfully under a microscope right now but it takes two to send nudies.
Now if he was overbearing and harassed the girls until they gave in then that's one thing but if he was like "hey what's up. You know who I am. How about some tits?" and they were like "Sure I'll send you whatever you want Mr. Internet Celebrity!" then it's another story. I never got details on how it actually went down.

Very disappointed in Spacey but he can't expect to pull shit like this and expect to get away with it no matter how long ago it was.

I'm certain that if we dig deep enough on every celebrity, we'll get a similar story on each of them.

Netflix just announced that the next season of House of Cards will be its last.

Are we really going to have to make threads for every Hollywood scum bag?

I heard that it might have been the final season anyway. If not then it’s a shame so many people are going to lose work because of that asshole.

FUCK YES WE GET A DOUG SPINOFF OUT OF THIS

I kinda want a buddy comedy with the press secretary

Agreed but with them in an entirely different environment and something depressingly mundane like an landscape or office supply company.

I think it's very likely they can the sixth season and start two new series about Doug and Claire with a news story that Frank choked on a dick and died or something like that.

I’d also change the name of that show, just to completely distance themselves from the Spacey show. Claire & Doug Road Trip or whatever. Frank dying with a dick is his mouth is a happy ending for him though, maybe he dies eating poisoned BBQ from Freddy.

Maybe the least shocking of all. Guy has a reputation of being a total dick. Hollywood has had it too good for too long getting away with shit. So much more is sure to come out.
