Louis C.K.’s career was derailed after he admitted to multiple acts of sexual misconduct, but at least one co-star believes he deserves another opportunity.
Edie Falco told The Vulture she would like to see the disgraced comedian get a second chance after owning up to his actions. C.K. confirmed the sexual misconduct allegations against him and apologized for his behaviour.
“He’s someone who admitted that he did what he was accused of doing and admitted that it wasn’t right,” said Falco. “If I was not given another chance a couple of times, there is no way we’d be having this interview right now.”
“The Sopranos” album continued, “People who are committed to becoming aware of what they’ve done and changing, they can be our strongest proponents of an issue like this.”
A New York Times expose published in November featured four women who accused C.K. of masturbating in front of them.
“These stories are true,” responded the comedian. “The hardest regret to live with is what you’ve done to hurt someone else. And I can hardly wrap my head around the scope of hurt I brought on them… I have spent my long and lucky career talking and saying anything I want. I will now step back and take a long time to listen.”
Falco and C.K. co-starred in the black-and-white comedy-drama “I Love You, Daddy” with Chloe Grace Moretz, John Malkovich, Helen Hunt, and Charlie Day.
