F. Murray Abraham, who’s starred in “White Lotus” and “Homeland,” faced sexual misconduct allegations on another hit show … and it was so serious, it reportedly cost him his job.
Abraham got the boot from Apple TV+’s “Mythic Quest” about a year ago, but the reason for his departure was never revealed. Now, a new report in Rolling Stone magazine says the firing was due to 2 alleged incidents of the actor harassing, at the very least, female costars or crew members.
According to the report, Abraham was given a warning after one incident … and was told to stay away from some of his female costars. Sources say a second incident later went down and when the show creator and star Rob McElhenny found out, Abraham was dropped.
Abraham played C.W. Longbottom, the pretentious head game writer at Mythic Quest HQ. His absence first went into effect at the beginning of season 3, and a send-off for the character was written into the show — something McElhenny told Variety was “a really fitting tribute to him.”
Lionsgate, which produces “Mythic Quest,” tells TMZ … “We take allegations of misconduct seriously and investigate them thoroughly. As a matter of corporate policy, we do not discuss personnel actions.”
We’ve reached out to Abraham’s reps for comment … so far, no word back.
