Frank Langella, who was cast to play the lead in Netflix's limited series “The Fall of the House of Usher” has been fired from the show amid a misconduct investigation that came after a sexual harassment allegation.

According to Deadline, sources confirmed that the investigation determined Langella had been involved in unacceptable conduct on set. Earlier this week, TMZ reported that the 84-year-old Oscar-nominated actor allegedly made inappropriate comments to a female co-star.

Langella was set to play Roderick Usher in the series. Additional cast members include Carla Gugino, Mary McDonnell, Carl Lumbly and Mark Hamill.

The eight-episode series is based on the works of Edgar Allan Poe. The cast will continue filming as Langella's part is now being recast.
