An investigation determined that Murray had engaged in inappropriate sexual conduct with a team member, causing the sitcom to Aziz Ansari canceled his shoot, and soon after new accusations surfaced against him.

Some violent incidents emerged during the recording of Saturday night Live, and Geena Davis He also recalled a very unpleasant episode on the set of With the cops on the heels. Some would think that because of this controversy Wes Anderson has chosen to do without it in Asteroid City: his new film (premiering this June 16) is the first since Bottle Rocket that does not count on his presence.
