Talk about putting the “Fall” in The Fall of the House of Usher.

Deadline is reporting that Oscar-nominated actor Frank Langella has been axed from the upcoming Netflix series The Fall of the House of Usher, a series based on the works of Edgar Allan Poe.

An investigation found that Langella was involved in unacceptable conduct on set. What conduct you might ask? Well, according to a report on TMZ, the actor told an inappropriate joke that was sexual in nature and touched the leg of a female costar.

Horror fans will remember Langella as the titular character in 1979s Dracula, a film in which he costarred with Laurence Olivier, Donald Pleasence and Kate Nelligan.

The Fall of the House of Usher is currently filming with Mike Flanagan at the helm. The series will star Mark Hamill, Carla Gugino, Willa Fitzgerald, Henry Thomas and Annabeth Gish.
