James Franco Will Return For 'The Deuce' Season Two Despite Misconduct Allegations

James Franco is returning for the second season of The Deuce, despite recent controversy.

The 39-year-old actor was recently at the center of sexual misconduct allegations where five women accused him of “inappropriate” and sexually exploitative” behavior.

According to the HBO show’s writer Megan Abbot, James will “of course” be a part of the cast.

Last month, the show’s co-creator and executive producer David Simon also told Variety that there had never been any incidents on set.

The Deuce chronicles New York City’s adult entertainment industry in the ’70s. It has already been renewed for a second season.

    Having some messy girl complain about giving him bj that nobody forced her to give, or some whiny entitled “actresses” complaining about the roles they decided to take being exactly as written and advertised were hardly “miscondeuct”

    Good. The accusations against him are ridiculous bs.

    Allegations only, he hasn’t actually been tried and convicted, why shouldn’t he keep working?

    I’m a feminist but I agree with this. If you start isolating people professionally just because of every allegation made against them how far could this go? I don’t believe in vengeful punitive measures. I believe in justice where issues like these can be resolved (not that justice doesn’t make mistakes, eg. Turner’s case but that’s a different conversation).
