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).

Rose McGowan felt trapped

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.

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.

Actress Florence Darel, 49, revealed on Thursday to French media that movie mogul Harvey Weinstein had promised to help make her big in Tamzin Outhwaite hints that screen husband Steve Owen could make EastEnders comeback as she prepares to reprise role as a 'darker' Mel Owen.

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.

'Gutsy' Ewan McGregor thanks both wife and girlfriend during Golden Globes speech

  'Gutsy' Ewan McGregor thanks both wife and girlfriend during Golden Globes speech Ewan McGregor raised eyebrows at the 2018 Golden Globes when he thanked his estranged wife Eve Mavrakis and his girlfriend Mary Elizabeth Winstead during his acceptance speech. The 46-year-old Scottish star won the award for best performance by an actor in a limited series or motion picture for television for his role in Fargo. Despite his turbulent personal life making headlines in recent months, he still decided to take a moment to acknowledge two of the most important women in his life. He started off with the 51-year-old production designer Mavrakis, who he married in 1995 and separated from in May 2017. "I want to take a moment to just say thank you to Eve, who always stood by me for 22 years," he said before adding: "and our four children, Clara, Esther, Jamyan and Anouk." He then went on to pay tribute to his Fargo co-star Winstead. "I've always loved being an actor and I love hanging out with actors and I got amazing actors to work with on this. There wouldn't be any Emmit Stussy without David Thewlis and Michael Stuhlbarg and Carrie Coon, and there would've been no Ray without Mary Elizabeth Winstead so thank you very much." The pair went public with their controversial romance in October 2017. The Trainspotting actor is 14 years her senior. Golden Globes viewers took to Twitter with some branding McGregor's speech as a slap in the face to his estranged wife.

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.”

Kitty Pryde movie: Deadpool director working on X-Men spin-off despite Disney buyout

  Kitty Pryde movie: Deadpool director working on X-Men spin-off despite Disney buyout Deadpool director Tim Miller is reportedly working on a new superhero spin-off for 20th Century Fox about X-Men member Kitty Pryde, the character most notably played on the big screen by Ellen Page in X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men: Days of Future Past. Collider reports that Miller has added the solo movie to his busy slate of upcoming projects, and may direct it if it comes to pass. Whether or not that's the case will depend in large part on whether Disney's $52.4 billion merger is allowed to go through. The deal is currently undergoing a regulatory review period that will take some time. If it goes through, Disney-owned Marvel Studios will regain control of X-Men and Fantastic Four, the Fox-owned Marvel properties. Collider stresses that the Miller is actively working on the project despite these factors. Likewise, Fox is still pushing ahead of the three major X-Men films set for release in 2018. First up is Josh Boone's The New Mutants in April – which puts a horror twist on the series – then comes Deadpool 2 in June and X-Men: Apocalypse follow-up Dark Phoenix in November. Kitty Pryde is a B-list X-Men character. She's been an important factor in the ongoing comic book stories since her debut in 1980, but sits comfortably behind the likes of Wolverine, Cyclops, Storm and Professor X. Pryde has the ability to become intangible and move through solid objects (helpfully with anything she's touching at the time). She can also levitate.

The audio was leaked to the Internet and it shows how creepy and pushy Weinstein was . 9. Florence Darel. One of the bigger questions surrounding Harvey Weinstein ’s escapades is what Pitt allegedly pushed Weinstein up against a wall and threatened him. It made Weinstein furious.

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.
