After Putting Career Over Morals, Tick Actor Griffin Newman Vows Never Again

The actor is in Woody Allen's upcoming movie and donated that film's salary to RAINN.

Griffin Newman plays Arthur in Amazon's The Tick and has a bit part in Woody Allen's new movie. The actor has expressed regret for being in the upcoming film. And in a rare case of actually putting your money where your mouth is, Newman stated that he donated his salary to the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN).

Newman further explained his regret.

 

In 1992, Allen was accused of sexually abusing his adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow. In September 1993, the state's attorney, Frank Maco, announced he wouldn't be pursuing Allen in court for the molestation allegations, despite having "probable cause", citing his and Farrow's desire not to traumatise Dylan further.

Newman has stated he will take the next week off of Twitter.

That's cool and everything but, if he was so conflicted, why take the role in the first place?

I think that sort-of-gets-explained in one of his subsequent posts (wanting an "educational experience" on set and the like). Perhaps his conflicted feelings didn't hit him until after accepting role. It's not like Allen's been stagnating for the past 25 years, he's still making movies and notable actors still star in them. Actor A and Actress B starred in Woody's movies, so that makes it easier on Actor C to want to join in. Certainly THEY are certain it's okay and there aren't any ethical dilemma to be had.
