"I became a target of his rage and inappropriateness, and had to report him to HR, as well," says the Showtime series' current showrunner, Ayanna Floyd, while creator Lena Waithe maintains that she was told of the actor's alleged actions only after the first season wrapped. After his breakout performance as Eazy-E in Straight Outta Compton and his role as a World War II veteran in the critically acclaimed Mudbound, Jason Mitchell’s career was flourishing.

It was chilly out, and we were sitting at a folding table in a big, white resource tent — the same kind of generator-equipped resource tent that had popped up in church and school parking lots around Northern California that week, as an intentional blackout of unprecedented scale darkened wide swaths of the state. Mears, who is 67, was wrapped in a fuzzy blanket and cuddling her small dog while she charged her cellphone and electric mobility scooter at the tent’s outlets.
