The Oscar-nominated actor has been dropped from Mike Flanagan's limited series based on the works of Edgar Allan Poe after an investigation "determined that Langella had been involved in unacceptable conduct on set," reports Deadline's Nellie Andreeva. "As a result, a decision has been made to recast the role of Roderick Usher, I have learned. The Fall of the House of Usher is about halfway through production. The scenes already filmed by Langella will be reshot." Roderick Usher is the towering patriarch of the Usher dynasty. On Tuesday, TMZ reported that "the 84-year-old actor allegedly made an inappropriate joke that was sexual in nature. Our sources also say in the context of his performance, possibly during rehearsal, he touched the leg of a female costar, and further drew attention to the action when he jokingly said something like 'Did you like that?'" Deadline confirms Langella had been accused of sexual harassment of a co-star. Langella led a cast that includes Carla Gugino, Mary McDonnell, Carl Lumbly and Mark Hamill.
