Academy Award-winning actress Mira Sorvino is set for a guest role on Modern Family. Annabella Sciorra has just been tapped for a recurring role on GLOW. And Rose McGowan has landed a five-part docu-series on E! titled Citizen Rose. These women share a grim but unifying commonality: all three of them publicly spoke out against Harvey Weinstein last year, making shocking claims of sexual misconduct that encouraged more women to come forward with allegations against the powerful producer (who has denied all allegations of nonconsensual acts).

Peter Jackson Rebukes Harvey Weinstein’s Denial On Ashley Judd & Mira Sorvino

  Peter Jackson Rebukes Harvey Weinstein’s Denial On Ashley Judd & Mira Sorvino EXCLUSIVE: Shortly after Harvey Weinstein denied claims that he blackballed Ashley Judd and Mira Sorvino from being cast in Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings movies, Jackson has chimed back in, calling parts of Weinstein’s denial “insincere.” Here is Jackson’s rebuttal in full: Aspects of Harvey’s denial are insincere. He is basically saying that “this blacklisting couldn’t be true because New Line cast the movie”. That’s a deflection from the truth.In the 18 months we developed the Lord of the Rings at Miramax, we had many casting conversations with Harvey Weinstein, Bob Weinstein and their executives.

How the story broke open. The first Times article represented the first time multiple women — among them the actresses Ashley Judd and Rose McGowan — went on The decision was made “in light of new information about misconduct by Harvey Weinstein that has emerged in the past few days,” the

The actors were both reportedly left out of projects because of the Weinstein brothers.

In addition, all three publicly claimed that after their encounters with Weinstein—McGowan alleged that he raped her, as did Sciorra; Sorvino said he sexually harassed her—he blacklisted them from acting opportunities in Hollywood, which ultimately damaged their careers. But now that Hollywood is undergoing a sprawling and fearsome reckoning, all three women are making career comebacks, landing plum roles in the post-Weinstein era.

Sciorra’s role is the most recently announced of the three. On Friday, Deadline reported that she will have a recurring part on Season 2 of the Netflix wrestling dramedy GLOW, playing Rosalie Biagi, a mother to one of the characters. It’s a high-profile opportunity for the actress, though it’s unclear how prominent her role will be.

Harvey Weinstein Sued for Alleged Spying in Paz de la Huerta Rape Case

  Harvey Weinstein Sued for Alleged Spying in Paz de la Huerta Rape Case Harvey Weinstein was sued on Friday for allegedly using a New York attorney to spy on actress Paz de la Huerta, who has accused the disgraced producer of raping her. The complaint accuses attorney Michael F. Rubin of seeking to gain information from de la Huerta last fall, while also discouraging her from pursuing criminal charges against Weinstein. At the time, she was represented by attorney Aaron Filler. Filler’s firm — Tensor Law — filed the lawsuit Friday against Rubin, Weinstein, and the Weinstein Company, alleging that they coordinated in an effort to thwart the prosecution.

The Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein faces a series of previously undisclosed allegations of sexual harassment and unwanted physical contact stretching back nearly three decades, according to a New York Times investigation published on Thursday afternoon.

Weinstein settled with her out of court. 9. Actress Ramola Garai. According to The Guardian, Garai claims she was asked to audition for a role at Weinstein 's hotel room, where he appeared only in a bathrobe. In a personal blog post, Godbold reiterated the claims made by previous women: "The

For the last few years, Sciorra has landed guest spots on numerous TV shows, such as Bull,The Good Wife, and CSI; the GLOW role could mark her splashiest part since her Emmy-nominated turn on The Sopranos in the early aughts.

Back in October, Sciorra was one of the first actresses to share a graphic account of her alleged experience with Weinstein, claiming that the producer violently raped her in the 1990s and continued to sexually harass her for the next few years. Her career also suffered as a result, she claimed. “From 1992, I didn’t work again until 1995,” she told The New Yorker. “I just kept getting this pushback of ‘We heard you were difficult; we heard this or that.’ I think that that was the Harvey machine.”

Weinstein’s spokesperson Sallie Hofmeister told The New Yorker that he “unequivocally denies” the allegations.

Earlier in January, The Hollywood Reporter announced that Mira Sorvino would be doing a guest role on Modern Family, playing Nicole Rosemary Page, a woman who “runs a GOOP–esque lifestyles brand called NERP.” GOOP, coincidentally, is run by Gwyneth Paltrow, who also spoke out about Harvey Weinstein last October. Sorvino also stepped forward that month, alleging that Weinstein had sexually harassed her and tried to pressure her into a physical relationship. After she rebuffed him, Sorvino said, Weinstein blacklisted her. “There may have been other factors, but I definitely felt iced out and that my rejection of Harvey had something to do with it,” she told The New Yorker.

‘House Rescue’ Production Suspended After Star’s Arrest on Sexual Assault Charge

  ‘House Rescue’ Production Suspended After Star’s Arrest on Sexual Assault Charge Christopher J. Dionne also appeared on HGTV's "Family Flip""In light of the allegations which just came to light, we are suspending production on the series," a spokesman told TheWrap on Monday.

Actresses who have been propositioned–or worse–by moguls have long opted to remain silent for fear of losing parts. When you’re a rabbit caught in the jaws of a lion, going limp at least gives you a chance of survival. That code of silence protected Harvey Weinstein for an unconscionably long time.

Kate Beckinsale has accused Harvey Weinstein of coming onto her in his hotel room when she Romola Garai has accused Harvey Weinstein of making her feel "violated" when he watched her He allegedly told her about all the actresses he had slept with and how he had in turn established their

That allegation has since been backed up by filmmakers like Peter Jackson, who claimed that Miramax urged him not to hire Sorvino or Ashley Judd, another actress who later claimed that Weinstein had sexually harassed her.

“I recall Miramax telling us they were a nightmare to work with and we should avoid them at all costs. This was probably in 1998,” he said in a recent interview. When Sorvino saw Jackson’s comments, she tweeted that she “burst out crying.”

“There it is, confirmation that Harvey Weinstein derailed my career, something I suspected but was unsure,” she wrote.

A spokesperson for Weinstein later denied that the producer blacklisted Sorvino. Jackson fired back with a statement saying that aspects of Weinstein’s denial were “insincere.” Director Terry Zwigoff also said in December that the Weinsteins had discouraged him from casting Sorvino in his 2003 comedy, Bad Santa. A representative for Weinstein told Deadline that the producer “denies speaking with Terry regarding casting.”

Rose McGowan Details Her Graphic Alleged Harvey Weinstein Assault in New Book

  Rose McGowan Details Her Graphic Alleged Harvey Weinstein Assault in New Book Rose McGowan is finally detailing her alleged sexual assault at the hands of Harvey Weinstein.  Rose McGowan is finally detailing her alleged sexual assault at the hands of Harvey Weinstein.

Like Sorvino, Rose McGowan has said that she believes Weinstein, and Hollywood at large, blacklisted her after the producer allegedly raped her. She has since become one of Weinstein’s most vocal critics after the allegations against him exploded in October, which has given McGowan an enormous variety of coverage. She was featured in Time’s “Person of the Year” issue and has since landed a docu-series at E! The series, Citizen Rose, will dive “into my mind and world,” the actress said, and is set to debut on Jan. 30, the same day as her upcoming memoir, Brave. Like Sorvino and Sciorra, McGowan is carving out a new path in the post-Weinstein era, moving into the next phase of her career as the industry around her figures out how to properly eradicate sexual harassment—in Hollywood and beyond.
