Five years are non white however the numbers were so bad going into this that it really only. It's like putting a drop of food coloring in a bathtub of water. That's a good analogy.

"It is week two of the Harvey Weinstein trial in the tense moment for Hollywood and the me too movement for decades Harvey Weinstein was this towering figure in the film industry he was executive producer behind huge movies like you know the English patient and good will hunting in the king's speech most of Quentin Tarantino's films but since October twenty seventeen more than eighty women have come forward accusing him of sexual harassment assault and rape heavy winds dean is now facing five charges including rape and predatory sexual assault of two unnamed accusers and those accusations sparked the me too movement Rebecca Keegan is the senior film editor at The Hollywood Reporter she's been following the trial and he joins you from Los Angeles to talk about the implications the trial has for both the me too movement and for women working in Hollywood right now good morning Rebecca thank god so there's a ton of coverage of this trial for you what are some things we should be keeping in mind as we had to well we're just heading into sort of the heart of jury selection and I think that's where a lot of this trial will be decided it's going to be incredibly hard to find twelve people who are impartial apart about hardy winds dean in New York City because of the just blanket of media coverage it's also interesting to note that many of one's dean's alleged victims have been coming to the court house they should want to make an impact on him on jurors and on the victims will be testifying you mentioned there that some of the yes some of some of the I'm accusers have been coming to the courthouse including the actor rose McGowan this is rose speaking outside the court on the first day of the trial your Harvey no matter

"rebecca keegan" Discussed on The Takeaway

"A Are could be written. But are they really being followed as Laura right when she says The industry has had a lot of change. It's been an enormous and dramatic amount of change in the the last two years. Virtually every facet of Hollywood from the agencies to the studios to the guilds as mentioned the screen actors guild have come up with new guidelines basically to prevent the emergence of another Harvey Weinstein. And so far anyway. People seem to be taking them seriously as opposed to the old days when they might sort of snicker at a sexual harassment video the HR department ask them to watch. How different is because you mentioned the HR department videos? And I think a lot of people who working in more traditional environments are used to seeing those so how different is that from and the entertainment industry when it comes to experiencing a reporting sexual harassment. Quite I mean one of the things that I think makes people who work in film and Television. Unusually vulnerable is the fact that they're on these. He's sets for short periods of time. They're not technically employees of a company. They are independent contractors so there isn't an HR department at that. You could go and report to in many cases And there are also really untraditional ways in which people get jobs case in point think have going for a job interview in someone's hotel room well in in Hollywood that was very common in most industries. That would be strange. The time's up organization. Just just released a safety guide to address misconduct in the industry. What does that guide represent? Do we know sort of what some of the parameters of safety safety are in the guide. Well a couple of things that that times up addresses in the guide are the situations where so many of these problematic encounters occurred so for instance auditions again which which larger and mentioned in that clip. You played additions are sort of this strange nebulous area. Where power was abused in many cases? The time's up guidelines tell actors. If you're invited to to an audition in a place that is not comfortable for you you have the right and in fact it would be a good idea to suggest another place It tells you that you can have multiple multiple people present. It just doesn't have to be you. And the director or you and the producer the guidelines also address nude scenes which are an area where there has been a lot of discomfort furred unawareness about how to deal with with boundaries and how to respect boundaries on set interestingly nude scenes have also sparked the creation of whole a new job in Hollywood. which is that of the intimacy coordinator? We actually spoke to someone at the takeaway into BC coordinator called Jacklyn Francis. Who Goes by Jack The stripper about her work on the set of the movie? Hustler's let's take a listen intimacy. Coordinator is something that is starting to happen in films that portray sexual contact so we weren't don't like simulating sex onset. But I was there to be like. Are you comfortable with this move. Are you comfortable doing this. If you're not let's try something else like it's not about doing exactly what you think you're supposed to do as a stripper stripper. It's about doing an expression of what feels right to feels natural to you. So we're working with constance Jennifer thank. Well how would you WANNA move. If there's that you don't enjoy don't do it with the last thing that we want anyone to feel uncomfortable. Comfortable Are you hearing a lot of that From the folks that you talked to in Hollywood Rebecca. Yeah I would say nude scenes is an area where there's still a lot of work to be done. There are so many scenarios where people can be made to feel uncomfortable and where they don't necessarily know how or where to express that discomfort case in point. My colleagues at the Hollywood reporter did a piece recently about the actress. Ruth Wilson on the showtime show the affair and why she had left that show that I heard on some mystery surrounding it. It turned out it was largely to do with the way nude scenes were handled. And how when she expressed his comfort with them Her her concerns were apparently not taken seriously. We spoke to the actor Mark Ruffalo also here at the takeaway about this new chapters At least that Hollywood is is in. And here's what he had to say about the changes that he's been seeing. We're all meeting before we shoot the movie all of us the whole crew. Everybody Buddy and it's explained to us or what discrimination is what sexual harassment is all of these things that we have have been sort of assuming our whole lives and have been taught cultural norms. Our whole lives were changing. Rebecca is that Is that change also happening among the men in Hollywood as mark is is sort of alluding to there. I'm sure every actress wishes she could work with Mark Ruffalo. Who is like one of the nicest people in Hollywood I it? There's clearly a cultural change regardless of gender that's happening in the industry three one of the things however that comes up that makes me think okay. There's been a lot of progress made but there's still some work to be done is. I often talked to people who have reported an issue. I've talked to alleged Weinstein victims alleged victims of other Perpetrators in Hollywood and they say that they're having having trouble getting work. They they feel that they're sort of a scarlet letter on them because they spoke up now. They're considered a troublemaker or a rabble rouser. Is that still today with with the trial going on on an and every and the new charges coming out of La. Do you think that that's still happening. Well indeed I mean in reporting I've done on the on the trial itself. Some of those victims have told me day feel feel that specifically because they spoke up about Weinstein they're not getting work elsewhere in the industry the same thing came up on a piece. I recently did about women who had spoken up at Fox News regarding Roger ailes that they had largely not been able to find work elsewhere in TV news so on the one hand we're putting all of these systems was in place to ensure that these kinds of behaviors don't happen. What I think the jury is still out on his when people do report Do Their career suffer is. Is there adequate support for them. Rebecca Keegan is the senior film editor at the Hollywood reporter Rebecca. Thanks so much. Thank you inmates. At multiple correctional facilities in the state of Mississippi are facing an emergency. See seeing what I call a massacre on my heart is broken because we failed these guys and we need victory for the past week. In alarming wave of violence in the state's prisons has led to at least five confirmed deaths advocates and inmates claim. The death toll may be higher hire Malaysia. Canada is the founder of the Jalen Barker Foundation and a prison reform activist Mississippi. New Year's Eve haven't had any sleep until last night. It's been heartbreaking. The most thing of it is fear. What did you WanNa hear next at two o'clock in the morning I'm hearing it was somebody was attack three three o'clock in the morning? You hear somebody's attack not being able to help them. It's the worst feeling that I have had. I just want to change because I have a lot of loved ones that is in. Yeah and I want them to come home one day. Details of the situation are scarce and sometimes unreliable with families saying officials are leaving them in the dark but footage gathered By inmates with contraband. Cellphones show rundown facilities fistfights injuries. And even dead bodies which they've been sending from the inside. Many of the the families say they just want answers. One of those victims were stabbed was a family member. You can see him on video being stabbed inside the cell fabric and then we constant. We're we're easy. No one is able to tell us anything toll. Tell us the truth. Let us be there with them because you know that this has happened then be beside him let benefit least in in the in the lobby is say so they can say well. Yeah he's okay. This latest violence is only a glimpse of problems within Mississippi's criminal justice system. That go back for years. There's alesia Santo is a reporter for the Marshall Project. And she's with me now to help us explain what's happening at least you. Thanks so much for joining us. Thank you for having me. Let's take a step back here. There're era problems within the Mississippi criminal justice system and facilities. Give us a sense of what those are the. MDC prison system is extremely understaffed Say That's one of the key problems. They're facing that. Many prison systems across the country are facing so when you have a lack of staff you have a lack of ability to bring people to programs to have visitors to let people go to church or work and you also have A situation particular to Mississippi that we know of where the gangs have a lot of control over the facilities. We did a story about the Wilkinson prison. which is one of the prisons in Mississippi? That's privately run it's run by a company called. MTC and in a an audit that we obtain that was meant to be internal The prison officials actually admitted to auditors that they relied on Gangs to run the facility due to the lack of staff that they had and if the control did not come forward if they didn't actually keep control of that particular pod then they would go on to lock down and it kind of leads to this cycle where a lock down where people can't move leads to very very hi tensions and as soon as those doors open up that's when the violence comes pouring out. Is that what we're seeing now with this latest wave of violence in these Mississippi facilities. I think it's something you have to think about in the background of what's been happening that led up to all of this so we here at the takeaway reached out to the Mississippi Department of Corrections for comment on what was happening. The extent of their response was a link to a statement that they'd published on January third. The statement says that a lockdown will continue in the state's prison facilities. He's while they investigate the recent violence. Have you heard anything else from officials in Mississippi right now about the state of what's happening so far. A lot of questions remain unanswered including luding. How many other people were injured? And what other incidents might have occurred other than the ones that resulted in death. We've often relied on public records requests to do our reporting with MD.. I mean I can't say they've never answered questions they certainly do at times but I think it's a lot more reliable to use public records law and order to just get the documents we heard at the very top Alexia from A woman who says she has loved.

I sat next to for the Irishman so she gave me your ticket Melanie B Alice Melby hooking it up so I got to watch meredith story at the film festival and again if you've never seen a movie at The New York Film Festival you've got Galway such a special experience because the whole crowd into it nobody just stumbled into the movie everyone's there because they're excited and they're fired up and they're knowledgeable film fans and Noah Baumbach was there the writer actor as was Adam driver as Scarlett Johansson as was the rest of the supporting cast which is excellent Alan alda Laura dern and Ray Liotta and the story is this story but it could be called divorce story because it's about a couple that is going through a divorce and trying to do things as painlessly as possible I and I love the way that the movies start really smart engaging way by Noah Baumbach the first words are back voiceover narration and it is both Scarlett Johansson Adam driver each taking turns complimenting the the other so you have Scarlett Johansson talking about I'm Dr Degree husband and the fact that he's a great other and he's always there for the kids even love the things that you should hate when you're apparent which is kids having tantrums or kids being in the middle of the night and then likewise in her the fact she's sensitive and caring the way she falls asleep while reading a bulker this and that it's really nice extended sequence and then you see the two characters in a therapy session here Oh okay well the good back together this is not reconciliation the therapist recommends they start out by praising each other so that when things get a little bit messy they are a member you know why they I fell in love with each other and all that kind of stuff and of course the therapy session that ends badly and away we go and Mary Stories is I think definitely one of the best films of the year I think it's going to be on lots of best of lists I'm giving it three and a half maple leaves because I enjoyed it so much and I thought it was just a really smart film I credit goes to know about back who is the writer and director who himself was going through a divorce with Jennifer Jason Leigh low turn hateful eight and Jansen also came through divorce so when he wrote the script he based a lot of it on his own experiences and Sculpture Hansen really connected the script having been through it herself and so they kind of had their own kinship up over the material which as that review noted is definitely ron painful and the best sequence entire movie is argument that her Adam driver grab which is just explosive and it's just so heated in it so raw because all the emotion comes spilling out and all these long jess data and grudges and wounds that have been nursed finally just you know come to the surface it's not like picking off a scab just rip the band aid hold there's a blood gushing that the equivalent of watching this argument between the two but it is ferociously well done I mean I couldn't imagine one of the many things I appreciate actors do take after take and I couldn't imagine doing takes in that scene even doing wants must have been exhausting emotionally to imagine madame driver and Scarlett Johansson doing it multiple times is almost too much to bear but it's a very powerful secrets comes in the final third of the movie and most though is not that most the movie is not reconciliation but man aging as best as you can with adversity right for whatever reason she wants to go out and he's like okay well I guess if the relationship going to end and we've all been there relationships end well how do we make this work as best as possible and it's a much cleaner break when there's no children involved but of course they do have a child so how do we figure this out and she's an actress wants to go back to L. A. and he's a theater director in New York so first and foremost geography how's this GonNa work we lived in New York we're living in L. A. was she wants to be in La but I can't leave because I've got the driver can I get knocked for a loop once you see scar Joe's already hired a lawyer and the performance of the film and perhaps one of the best performances of the year burn is absolutely getting it nominee for best supporting actress and I would think might win because she is tremendous lemon she is exactly what you expect divorce lawyers to be ages cunning and Sharp and brilliant and they do it all with a big broad smile on their face I mean the sequences where the former all sitting down eh I the lawyer for Adam drivers AAll again is is wonderful because he's just so avuncular and kind and he's like an old couch she just like a comfy guides when squeezes cheeks they should live in Los Angeles and that Adam drivers should be paying X. amount of money because a B and c like it's it's amazing how well she's done which is where you enter Ray Liotta because again he is a shark of the nate persuasion who is totally hardboiled and top and I wish we had more screen time in the movies only in a few scenes but leonidas fantastic he's such a good actor and it's good to see him with a roll like this which provide some some meat really is kind of chartres that can circle with dern but this is the way of divorce especially in today's age you've got to figure things out and pursued things get messy things get a bit dirty it doesn't mean that the couples don't still love each other it just means that for whatever reason they can't be together but at what point they were in love now there are no longer are let's try to make the separation as painless as possible but of course that is not easy to do I thought the movie really nailed all the potential pitfalls of it and the the biggest key with marriage story the way Noah Baumbach wrote it conceived it and eventually delivered it is that you're not picking sides that you're not saying she's this and he's that you're constantly changing your opinion in fact you're kind of volleying Your Ping Pong in your own mind saying well I could see why she got married to him either sacrifice for him and I think when you're doing that as an audience you know when you're making the film experience interactive that's always a great movie you know it's like I always get frustrated people who don't like there's there's nothing happening we know everything's happening you're boring you're the one niners doing what's happening you're not looking at the fact whereas the catcher setting up what's the pitch going to be where the outfielder shading the pitcher but the hitter the last time he was up where is he looking in the zone other runners on base what's the crowd environment like etc same thing in a movie if you're just passively watching action entertainment okay that's fine but the best movies make you think along with them emerge story thank lose refreshing in that and the movie like this you're GonNa stick the landing the only reason I'm taking a half a maple leaf off there's a senior which felt a little bit like Oscar Bait to me with regards to Adam drivers character and again maybe this was the downside of being with his crowd but the cruiser cheering at the scene and I was like this is a little is to me I thought it was a little hackneyed the way the seed was not only conceived but also delivered I said I don't like movies trying that hard to wring emotion out of me I'll take a little bit of sentiment at times but when I can see the strings being played then I get a little bit annoyed and I think the first twenty minutes.

"Like, why does Netflix having a qualifying run for these films prevent them from backing all the women and men people of color and other creators that they have been backing there's no it's not like mutually exclusive. Right. Or it's because they don't want to budge on that, you know, like, they I've said it before and products woman. It was something that Rebecca Keegan said to me was, you know, Amazon wants to play the game in nNcholas wants to change it. And it's day. I think that they're really reticent to let anyone. Else dictate how they released their content, you know, and obviously they've made some concessions here, and there and might have to make more. But like, no, I don't think it's a financial thing. I think it's absolutely a pride thing. Yeah. What you said. Join is where I start feeling really cynical about this like having a four Rick cashable window will not keep them from making a different as next movie right recess next movie. Like, those things are both things that influence does. But do not want us to prevent the other. Which is why I feel like the four weeks is totally reasonable thing to ask. So I think if you step outside of what the debate became on Twitter. Like, I think if you step outside the characterization like I was actually disappointed, you know, like I want to support the media. I wanted to support my colleagues, but I was actually really disappointed when I was scrolling through all the coverage trying to figure out how we got here. How did this? How did this discussion gets so mutated to what it became on Twitter? And then I just like looked at all the headlines Spielberg goes to war with Netflix. And I was like is that really what we're talking about here. Like what what another thing that? I did find interesting though that. That I learned from reading this coverage is that? Spielberg was a major backer for green book, which I somehow missed. But apparently he was behind the scenes pushing really hard for Greenville gamblin's produced. It didn't they? Yeah. I guess I just completely missed that connection. So that's fascinating. And and people are using it to sort of reframe, again Spielberg has like old Hollywood, which is so funny because I was I was watching a documentary documentary footage from years ago. I don't I feel real project. I was doing is watching some documentary footage from years ago. It was Bilberg finding out that jaws had been snubbed at the Oscars. That's amazing clip of video. I can't believe he loves him. Good because he's so mad and bitter. He's like, you know, he's basically using them of 'gate-keeping him and his new fangled blockbuster way. And it's just sort of like for him to then become the gatekeeper. I mean, that's the same as it ever was. But that's a that's a good clip to revisit while. We're talking about this. I think we'll be the. Gatekeeper someday. Could listening..

Roma debate involves some hard truths

"Took home three Oscars, but it didn't win the trophy for best picture, and it sure sparked a big debate this award season. The Netflix film directed by Alphonso Cuaron was not embraced by theater owners as well as some academy voters because it landed on the streaming site right around the same time. It was offered to exhibitors it's called a day and date release. Typically theater owners want exclusive rights to a movie for several months before it starts appearing on streaming platforms and on DVD. But now Netflix might be thinking about going back to that traditional release pattern. I spoke with the Hollywood reporter senior film editor Rebecca Keegan about an upcoming net. Flix film directed by Martin Scorsese. The movie is called the Irishman. And she started with what Netflix learned from Roma. Flicks had held fast to this day and date release strategy until this past award season when they. They introduced a very small theatrical window a three week window for Roma in one week windows for a couple of other films. That is not a big enough window that it won them any fans among theater owners who still really see the company has kind of public enemy number one. As do many traditional lists in the business who who feel that the obstacle exhibition is a big part of what makes something a movie. So there are a couple things now that are at stake. There is the question of what filmmakers and filmmakers like Martin Scorsese want in terms of how their films are exhibited. And then there's the whole question of whether or not Netflix failure to be able to release Roma in a material way in theaters hurt its Academy Award chances for best picture. Well, it varies with the filmmaker. Of course. But when you're talking about a director like Martin Scorsese who is ultimately such a traditionalist. You know, he's still shoots movies on film. He is a lover of classic film square. Sese? He feels very strongly that he likes his movies to be seen in a movie theater. And so with filmmaker like this, it's very very important. It was also important to help Alfonso Koran even after he'd won his three Oscars. He talked about the importance of the theatrical exhibition experience, so most of these sort of top tier filmmakers want their movies in theaters, and you have reported as have some other people that the fact that Roma did not have a real theatrical release might have actually irked some Oscar voters, and they penalize the movie by not voting for it for best picture to have that. Right. That's right. I mean, some of the academy members ice spoke to said they deliberately put Roma last on their preferential ballot for best picture because they wanna penalize the business model by which Roma was released. Now, you can sort of take issue with that. But for some of these people, they see Netflix has really an existential. Get and it's not just theater owners. That are a little bit uncomfortable with the Netflix model their people like Steven Spielberg who had an opinion about it. What is Spielberg pushing for? We'll spill Berg has historically objected to net. Flicks. He says that they're movies should win Emmys that they're basically made for television movies. He's now behind the scenes pushing for a rule change at the academy that would require a theatrical release of a certain window four weeks is what I'm hearing from my sources in order for movie to be eligible for an Oscar those currently a rule that was passed in twenty twelve the doesn't require any kind of exclusive theatrical release at all. So the Irishman is obviously a big bet that Netflix has made with Martin Scorsese, but it's not the only name brand filmmaker that they're in business with other other movies where they might be looking at some sort of the ethical release before a movie appears on the streaming service. Yeah, Netflix has a lot of very promise. Saying awards movies in the works. They've got an untitled movie from Noah baumbach movies from a D Reese, Steven Soderbergh. David michaud. I mean, these are filmmakers who have had a lot of awards recognition in the past. And I would expect their movies to be of a particular quality where if Netflix wants to be in the awards game. They will do some version of what they did for Rome. What which is to give a movie a theatrical release of some type. So it's one thing for Netflix to say, we wanna do a theatrical release. It's another thing for Martin Scorsese to say, I want my film to have a theatrical release. What are the theater owners saying because ultimately they get to decide what movies are and are not exhibited in their chains. That's right. And the chains have a lot of power for a release of the type that I am hearing Martin Scorsese wants for the Irishman. You need the chains to buy an AMC regal and the others the chains. Want a couple of things they want Netflix too. Have a much bigger theatrical window than it did with Roma. They also were saying that they will report box office to calm score. Which is the company that we all get our box office information from one of the things that was controversial about the way Netflix handled Romo was that. It did not report box office. And it did not allow the theaters where it was playing to report box office AMC and regal say we don't play that way. If you're showing in our theaters we're going to report box office. And I don't know if it's an insult to people who drink or people who sale, but Netflix has been spending money like drunken, sailors. Is there anything that would prevent them from buying theater chain and just doing a work around where they have their own theaters. And don't have to worry about exhibitors. There was a period where net looks was said to be looking at landmark but last December that chain sold to the Cohen media group. But certainly Netflix has a history of buying what it wants if you look just at the billboards that it bought and you. Used heavily to promote Roma net. Flicks is happy to write a check to solve a problem. Netflix does not only spent a lot of money making the Irishman. But also bought a very prominent ad in the middle of the Academy Awards broadcast. How important was that step? Well, it was definitely an expensive ad if you look at ABC was charging two to three million for thirty seconds spots. That was a sixty seconds spot. And it was definitely the company announcing big broad intentions for this Martin Scorsese movie. So maybe come a year from now we'll be talking about the Irishman either in or out of the Academy Award race. I guess the movie has to be good. I so we'll see what happens there.

We're going to go into the final stretch of this year's Oscar special MOAB talking about a whole bunch of true stories on screen, but I wanna take about my now to talk about one movie that I'm very thankful is not based on a true story, and that is a quiet place. This is a movie that is in many ways almost a silent movie. It's about a family living in this apocalyptic era, where you cannot make any noise or monsters will hear you reputa- shreds shred some remarkable performances, including Emily blunt almost silently giving birth. The movies made nearly three hundred fifty million dollars worldwide. It has only one Oscar nomination, but it's for an ironic category, sound editing. Hear the sound editors from a quiet place in its most sort of basic broad description, sound editing is the collection and creation of the sounds and putting. That altogether into picture. My name is Eric eight. My name is Ethan vendor on sound editors are kind of composers. We're following this family that has to survive by understanding sound there are these creatures that have hyper acute hearing. So in a way sound kind of becomes a central character in this story and creates this experience that ideally in. This was our goal would put the audience into the shoes of the characters and make them active. Participants in this experience. So basically Emily's character. Evelyn her water has broken so baby is impending which you can imagine in this world is kind of a nightmare and a creature has sensed that there was some activity going on. So it comes down into the basement to sniff sniffer out. This is Emily's breathing from set. But also supplemented with some eighty are which we recorded in the studio. So everything else is completely reconstructed in post production sound, so Emily has just found this egg-timer, which is gonna use a sonic diversion. And there we hear the creature approaching these.

And this is also the reason for his success member when van Jones on election night, he explained part of Trump's victory in terms of whitelash, whitelash, brilliant brilliant moment by him that's going on in this country. Jones is smart enough to know culturally is a white lie, and there's an ink Sidoti among white people for the growing shift in the demographic population. It's like patriarchy people don't give up our easily. And when it starts to get close to they're going to lose power. They get anxious. That's Trump's appeal.

"I'm John horn. Thanks for joining us casting directors play an important role in Hollywood, and yet rarely are they given any credit, but following allegations that Harvey Weinstein and les Moonves says use the casting process as part of their sexual assaults of women casting directors are getting a lot more attention just not in the way that they'd hoped. The Hollywood reporter senior film editor Rebecca Keegan spoke with a dozen casting directors about how the recent scandals have sparked difficult conversations about their work, and we started with the biggest occupational hazard of being a casting director Wayne everybody, and I mean, everybody had a friend or a family member or a colleague who would like to have an opportunity to decision or get apart casting directors field, these kinds of requests all day. And when they come from powerful people like directors or producers or executive, obviously. They have to follow through on them. And obviously there are two iterations of that one is I've got a cousin. She wants to be an actor. Can you give her a look the other is I did something bad? She might leave me alone. If you do a see that's more. What you're talking about? Isn't it? Well, it isn't. It isn't all the casting directors. I spoke with said they'd never been to bear knowledge asked to participate in some sort of cover up there just sort of told, hey, can you find something for her and the why of it they don't necessarily know? So let's step back for a minute are casting directors typically employed by studio are they typically freelance, and how are actors protected one way or the other. Once they go into a casting session. Well. Be employed by a network or a studio on as is the case with Peter golden who was the head of casting for CBS. To learn bad. Too often meet redacting actresses workers can also be independent particularly in areas. Like, independent spell, many of them are and for many of them. It's a it's a labor of live a hard way to make a living, and they really depend on filmmakers and producers wanting to hire them time and time again, which of course, makes it difficult sometimes to draw firm boundaries, particularly when it comes to protecting actors, which is something that has really feel. It's their responsibility to do. The New York Times is reporting that former CBS had les Moonves tried to delete evidence of communications that he had with a manager of a woman who said moon vez assaulted her. How does casting figure into that story? Well in that case. Moonves has allegedly asked his casting director CBS Peter golden to find a role for a woman named Bobby Phillips fifty year old actress who was living in Canada. I spoke with golden who says he didn't know why he was being off to find a role for Phillips. It was nothing unusual about this request working in department at a network, particularly for men batch who was known to be very involved in passing. It was common to get these kinds of requests what has been alleged against les Moonves says is not unique. And that is the promise of apart in exchange for either keeping silent or some sort of horrible quid pro quo. I'll do this thing to you. And in return will give you this part or something like that. It's not unique. Les Moonves says is it the latter? Sounds like something that Harvey Weinstein has been accused of doing as well. Yeah. I mean, it's interesting to talk to casting directors about this. Because there many have been very sick of the term casting couch. They point out that the kinds of abuses that we're hearing about have not been done by casting directors. They have been done by directors producers executives trying to use the casting process. Well, that's the other wrinkle in your casting story as it relates to sexual harassment and assault, and that is that people who are not casting directors will use casting sessions as a way to meet someone or as you report using audition as a cover to see women remove their clothes. What did you hear about that practice, and how common that might be? Yeah. I heard many casting directors about that. They've been asked to either pass along a phone number for an actress like one casting director told me she said to director early in her career. I not your camp on your casting director if she wanted to give you her number. She would have. Which is kind of a a bolting for a casting director has to say to someone who employs her another. Casting director told me a story of a producer who asked her to leave the round when he would additioning actresses for topless scene. She says she refused to leave the room, and she lost that job other kind of funny or strange stories. There was a casting director who did desperately wanted to meet morning McCormick. The actors from the Brady bunch and kept suggesting her for roles. It made no sense. And it was clear that this was a director harboring a childhood crush, not actually intending to test a woman, so they're all sorts of bizarre ways in which people have tried to use the casting process for something. It has really nothing to do with that thing. And in terms of actors do actors have worries to about what may or may not happen inside a casting session. Well, one thing that's interesting is how much change there's been in casting in the last decade, or so it's much less common for actors to go in and do a live read. Now more commonly they put themselves on video, and they send that video in. And that has according to some casting directors. I talked to cut down on the potential for abuse of that format. There's also been a move away from the idea that you with an actor would meet producer or director hotel, suite to talk about a role that was really common way of doing things. And casting directors say they're going away from it many times these were completely harmless meetings. But of course, sometimes they weren't and her now, apparently as one casting director told me they're going to have to start building in conference rooms in boutique hotels in New York because I can't send my actors up to so and since sweet anymore, Rebecca, Keegan is a senior film editor at the Hollywood.
