The Goldbergs actor Bryan Callen denies sexual assault allegations

Published

on

Bryan Callen, a stand up comedian and star of The Goldbergs, has been accused of sexual assault and misconduct by four women in a report published by the Los Angeles Times.

The 53-year-old is alleged to have raped Katherine Fiore Tigerman, an actor and comedian whose credits include the TBS series Wedding Band, in 1999. Another woman, Rachel Green, alleges that Callen tried to force himself on her during an encounter which took place in an American Apparel fitting room in 2009.

The most recent allegation is from 2017 when Tiffany King, a comedian who previously performed at the same club as Callen, alleges that he offered her stage time and money in exchange for sexual favours.

Callen is best known for playing high school gym teacher Rick Mellor in The Goldbergs and more prominently in its recently-cancelled spin-off series Schooled. Sources close to The Goldbergs say that Callen will not appear in the show’s upcoming eighth season, but his absence is for plot reasons rather than as a response to these allegations.

Sony Pictures Television, which produces both series, declined to comment. ABC America could not be reached for comment.

Callen denied each allegation made against him in the following lengthy statement Variety obtained from his representatives.

“Let me be very clear: I have never raped, forced myself upon a woman nor have I offered to trade stage time for sex,” Callen said. “I know the truth. And I can only hold my head up high, remain true to myself, my family, my audience and know that I will not allow the cancel culture to subvert what I know and as importantly, what these women know, is the truth.”

The entirety of Callen’s statement can be read at the bottom of this story.

These accusations come less than two months after Callen’s fellow comedian Chris D’Elia was accused by multiple women of sexual misconduct. Some of D’Elia’s accusers say they were as young as 16 at the time of the alleged encounters. Callen and D’Elia were supposed to star in a Netflix prank show together, however, the streamer scrapped it after the D’Elia accusations emerged.

Callen has also defended D’Elia in recent weeks, saying in an episode of his podcast The Fighter and the Kid that “he’s still a friend.”

The reports of Callen’s misconduct have already sparked reactions from several prominent comedians, including Amy Schumer, who thanked the “brave women” for “coming forward and sharing their stories.”

“You are saving the women who may have come after you,” Schumer wrote in an Instagram post. “And to the comics who are annoyed with me for standing with these ladies what are you so afraid of?”

Here’s Callen’s full statement:

“Let me be very clear: I have never raped, forced myself upon a woman nor have I offered to trade stage time for sex. EVER. Yes my friend Whitney Cummings and I have ranted ad nauseam about showing her my penis on my podcast, which in no secret to anyone at this point anywhere.”

“As to the woman who claims I raped her 21 years ago: that is demonstrably false. Katherine Fiore and I went on a date. We went to my place. We got intimate and began to have sex at which point she looked at me and said ‘wait, I don’t want to just be a one night stand.’ I immediately stopped and we spoke about her expectations and our five year friendship. Several days later Katherine called me and we recapped our evening and hung up as friends. In 2001, she did multiple auditions to play the role of my wife in a television show that would have had us working together every day for years. That is not what rape victims do. And her actions speak volumes.”

“Equally false is the mud-slinging from a woman whom I had a prior relationship with, seemingly determined to get her name in the press. While there were years of friendly texts and emails exchanges, taking me up on career introductions or her asking to join me at shows, I was clearly not a power player, although her dark false accusations try to paint a different picture. She must have forgotten about the recent email she sent me apologising for her unrelated misdeeds and promising going forward to only treat me with kindness and respect.”

“I know the truth. And I can only hold my head up high, remain true to myself, my family, my audience and know that I will not allow the cancel culture to subvert what I know and as importantly, what these women know, is the truth.”

S.H.I.E.L.D. Series Finale Mystery: Is [Spoiler] Now an Agent of S.W.O.R.D.?

Published

on

The following contains spoilers from the series finale of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

The Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. series finale on Wednesday left a few characters in a somewhat curious place. Could it be that they now agents of… S.W.O.R.D.?

After the team vanquished one Chronicom army with, well, kindness, and obliterated the other (as well as Nathaniel Malick) with the quake to end all quakes (and almost end Quake herself!), the series leaped forward one year, where, Coulson, Daisy et al reunited at ye olde Swordfish club. (Wait, the whatfish?)

As the former teammates caught up with each other one by one, Jemma (played by Elizabeth Henstridge) asked Daisy (Chloe Bennet) how things were going with her and The Man Out of Time, Daniel Sousa (Enver Gjokaj).

“They’re… going, yeah,” Daisy reported with a warm smile. “We’re just loving the journey together.

“He’s made for this work, he’s solid,” she added, not specifying what said work is. “But he does keep calling us the ‘Astro Ambassadors,’ so yeah… he’s a dork. But he says hi.”

When the brief gathering — which we realized was virtual, the Zoom call of Zoom calls! — ended, we saw Mack and Yo-Yo return to their respective S.H.I.E.L.D. gigs (aboard a helicarrier and chasing an 0-8-4)… FitzSimmons resume a picnic with daughter Alya… and May head off to give Flint and other cadets a lecture at the new Coulson Academy.

As for Daisy, we realized that she in actuality was aboard Zephyr 3 (!) with Sousa and her redeemed sister Kora, where they were about to marvel at on an out-of-this-world sight in deep outer space. (Daisy did joke earlier that she prepped Sousa for this gig by screening E.T., which she said made him cry like a baby.)

It is tempting to surmise that Daisy & Co. are now working for S.W.O.R.D., the Marvel comics entity that Nick Fury seemed to be starting up, alongside some Skrull, in a bonus scene from 2019’s Spider-Man: Far From Home. S.W.O.R.D. is also rumored to have some sort of presence in Disney+’s upcoming WandaVision series starring MCU vets Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany.

The Sentient World Observation and Response Department in comic book lore is described as a “counterterrorism and intelligence agency” whose “purpose is to deal with extraterrestrial threats to world security. and is the space-based counterpart of S.H.I.E.L.D.”

Some deft freeze-framing during Daisy’s final scene in the series finale, however, reveals that regular ol’ S.H.I.E.L.D. logos — no S.W.O.R.D. sword — are on the Zephyr’s seat backs and glass partitions. But maybe they just haven’t gotten around to ordering new furnishings…?

S.H.I.E.L.D. co-showrunner Jed Whedon said (joked?) at a press event this week that “yes,” he would be open to an Agents of S.W.O.R.D. follow-up — though as fellow executive producer Jeffrey Bell noted, “We tried S.W.O.R.D. early [in the series] and we were shut down.”
