Bowing out again. Armie Hammer is stepping down from a production of “The Minutes” on Broadway amid an investigation by the LAPD into sexual misconduct allegations.
“I have loved every single second of working on ‘The Minutes’ with the family I made from Steppenwolf. But right now I need to focus on myself and my health for the sake of my family. Consequently, I will not be returning to Broadway with the production,” the actor — who has vehemently denied all claims against him — said in a statement to Variety on Friday.
The production team on the show also released a statement, which reads, “Armie remains a valued colleague to all of us who have worked with him onstage and offstage on ‘The Minutes.’ We wish only the best for him and respect his decision.”
