Following an investigation into his alleged misconduct on set, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that she will no longer appear in the limited series The Fall of the House of Usher.
Langella was part of the streamer's eight-episode horror tale inspired by several Edgar Allan Poe tales, earning a best actor Oscar nomination for Frost/Nixon.
The investigation was concluded shortly before the production, allowing the actor's role to be recast, and footage of Langella, 84, will not be used, according to a source. THR has learned that the investigation began after Langella was accused of making uncomfortable remarks to a female co-star.
Netflix has declined to comment. A member of the star did not respond to a request for comment.
Langella's departure was reported as the first time the deadline was set.
Mike Flanagan and Trevor Macy collaborate on the Haunting of Hill House and Midnight Mass. Mark Hamill, Carla Gugino, Mary McDonnell, and Carl Lumbly are among the previously announced cast members.
Langella has been known for appearing in several films such as Masters of the Universe (1987), Good Night, and Good Luck (2005), Robot & Frank (2012), and The Trial of the Chicago 7 (2020). He has also played on television shows such as Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, FX's The Americans, and Showtime's Kidding.
