Chris Noth has been dropped from CBS’ “The Equalizer” amid sex assault allegations, according to a statement from CBS and Universal Television on Monday.
“Chris Noth will no longer film additional episodes of The Equalizer, effective immediately,” the statement read.
He will appear in one more episode of the show that has completed production, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Noth played William Bishop, a former CIA handler and long-time friend to lead character Robyn McCall (Queen Latifah) in The Equalizer.

The decision comes after two anonymous women told THR they were assaulted by the 67-year-old actor in 2004 and 2015.
Noth vigorously denied the allegations in a statement to THR:
“The accusations against me made by individuals I met years, even decades, ago are categorically false… The encounters were consensual. It’s difficult not to question the timing of these stories coming out. I don’t know for certain why they are surfacing now, but I do know this: I did not assault these women.”
Noth was also dropped as a client of A3 Artists Agency. And an ad he filmed for Peleton — after his character Mr. Big was killed off in HBO Max’s Sex and the City sequel “And Just Like That” — was also removed from all of the fitness company’s social media platforms.
