Jeremy Piven Dropped as 'Late Show' Guest Amid Sexual Harassment Scandal

Jeremy Piven Dropped as 'Late Show' Guest Amid Sexual Harassment Scandal

Jeremy Piven was dropped as a guest from The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

The 52-year-old actor was scheduled to appear on the show on Friday (November 3) in an interview with host Stephen Colbert.

CBS has decided not to air the prerecorded interview with Jeremy due to the allegation of sexual harassment that came to light later in the week.

Jeremy Piven’s interview for Friday’s broadcast was pre-taped earlier this week on Monday, October 30. Since we were unable to address recent developments in that interview, we are replacing that segment with a new guest,” a spokesperson for The Late Show told The Hollywood Reporter.

Actress Ariane Bellamar alleged on Tuesday (October 31) that the actor groped her on the set of Entourage.

Jeremy denied the account in a statement: “I unequivocally deny the appalling allegations being peddled about me. It did not happen. It takes a great deal of courage for victims to come forward with their histories, and my hope is that the allegations about me that didn’t happen, do not detract from stories that should be heard.”

    He seems like a pig. Ask Debra Messing what she thinks of him when he guest starred on her show.

    Aren’t people innocent until proven guilty. He’s not Harvey Weinstein with hundreds of bad stories, rape and payoffs.

    this isnt a court of law. this is the court of public opinion and we can think what we want. I believe victims. Your logic is a great way to seed doubt in others’ minds and erode the legitimacy of their trauma, and it ain’t gonna work. anybody who rips down the victims and says, maybe we shoudlnt believe them – THOSE individuals (like yourself) are transparent – there’s something below them, and you, that wants and needs victims to not be believed. so I guess I should ask, does all this quick justice make you afraid? why?

    Priven has been an open secret, a total POS and misogynist. finally after Harvey, people feel like others are listening and they arent w/a target on their head.

    Also, how do you know he’s not like Harvey? You could say the same for Bryan Singer.

    Of course not but if you read what she said, what he attempted to do was not appropriate for a comedy. She actually mentioned this back in 2015 before the other allegations came out. You’re welcome.
