More from the casting couch?

Richard Armitage and Charlotte Kirk, tweeted by Kirk at the wrap of her work on Oceans 8, February 21, 2017.

You may remember Charlotte Kirk from this picture — taken when she filmed her very short appearance in Ocean’s 8 where she’s speaking with Claude Becker just before Sandra Bullock arrives at his gallery, earlier in the film. Or you may remember her from when news of her interaction with Kevin Tsujihara at Warner Bros. led to the end of his career there a few years ago (links here). And now, news of a sexual encounter and financial settlement afterwards seems to have been the cause of Ron Meyer’s departure from NBCUniversal. At the time of the Tsujihara mishegoss, Brett Ratner (who apparently tried to smooth waters in that situation, but was himself a target of sexual misconduct allegations and at that point, in a big directing / filmmaking deal with Warner Bros.) suggested that Kirk was engaged in extortion, but the new information about Meyer suggests the possibility that a third party is executing the extortion. Kirk has since gone on to write and act in the horror film, The Reckoning.

All this news on the centennial of the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment in the U.S. You’ve come a long way, baby.
