The show’s production company CBS and Universal Television announced in a brief statement to CNN on Monday that “Chris Noth will no longer be filming additional episodes of The Equalizer, which will take effect immediately.”
In “The Equalizer”, starring Queen Latifah, Noth, 67, portrays former CIA director William Bishop. He will be seen in the upcoming episode of an already filmed series, as well as in future series of episodes that have already aired.
CNN contacted Noth’s representative for comment.
In the first episode of the HBO Max series, “And Just Like That …”, the spin-off of “Sex and the City”, Noth’s character dies of a heart attack. (WarnerMedia, the parent company of CNN and HBO.)
On Monday night, “and Just Like That” stars and executive producers Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Christine Davis released their first statement on social media addressing the allegations.
“We are deeply saddened to hear the allegations against Chris Noth. We support women who have come forward and shared their painful experiences. We know this must be a very difficult thing and we commend them for it.”
