Last month, following a number of sexual misconduct/assault revelations that became public about Hollywood bigwig Harvey Weinstein, actor Terry Crews tweeted out his own experience of being groped by a previously unnamed Hollywood executive at a function that took place last year.
We say "previously" because, as the headline
implies outright states, that executive has been identified as Adam Venit, who is an agent that currently heads up William Morris Endeavor's motion picture group.
For those who don't remember, Crews made the following allegations:
As an agent, Venit represents a number of high-profile clients, including: Emma Stone, Diane Keaton, Adam Sandler, Vince Vaughn, Eddie Murphy, Brett Ratner and Dustin Hoffman (with those last two dealing with sexual misconduct accusations of their own this week).
Currently, Venit was said to be "putting together Creed 2 for clients Sylvester Stallone and Michael B. Jordan." Or at least he was. According to Variety, Venit has been placed on leave by his company while Crews' allegations are investigated.
The media outlet also added that over the past few days Crews was preparing to publicly name Venit.
