Chris Noth lost his spot as a regular in the CBS series 'The Equalizer' in the wake of sexual assault allegations: Complete story here!
Sex and the City star Chris Noth is paying a heavy price for the recent sexual assault allegations made against him. CBS crime drama, The Equalizer fired the actor from his regular role in the series. Noth played William Bishop in Queen Latifah, and Tory Kittles fronted series. "Chris Noth will no longer film additional episodes of The Equalizer, effective immediately," CBS and Universal Television wrote in a short statement.
Noth, 67, will be seen in one more original episode filmed before the allegations against the actor surfaced. Also starring Adam Goldberg, Liza Lapira, and Lorraine Toussaint, the crime drama, a sequel of the original film of 2014, premiered on CBS on February 7, 2021. Noth's character, Bishop, is a quirky ex-CIA director who is also a friend to Queen's character Robyn.

The news comes days after two women accused Noth rape and sexual assault. The woman alleged the actor of rape in the years 2004 and 2005. Law and Order actor Zoe Lister-Jones has also accused Chris of sexual misconduct just hours after the allegations surfaced. Details of the allegations are here.
Noth's Sex and the City co-stars, Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis, have given statements supporting the accusers. The three leading ladies claim to be saddened by the report. "We support the women who have come forward and shared their painful experiences," the trio said in a joint statement.

Noth, also known for his roles in Law & Order, The Good Wife, and Monsters, played the character Mr. Big, the main love interest for Sarah Jessica Parker's protagonist in the popular series. Noth was also dropped by his talent agency, and the Fitness brand Peloton removed an advert that featured the actor. Chris, however, claims the allegations to be false. "These stories could've been from 30 years ago or 30 days ago - no always means no - that is a line I did not cross. The encounters were consensual," Noth wrote.
