Armie Hammer has dropped out of upcoming Broadway production “The Minutes” amid sexual misconduct allegations and an ongoing LAPD rape investigation.
“I have loved every single second of working on ‘The Minutes’ with the family I made from Steppenwolf. But right now I need to focus on myself and my health for the sake of my family. Consequently, I will not be returning to Broadway with the production,” the actor — who has vehemently denied all claims against him — said in a statement to Variety on Friday.
The production team on the show also released a statement, which reads, “Armie remains a valued colleague to all of us who have worked with him onstage and offstage on ‘The Minutes.’ We wish only the best for him and respect his decision.”
