- "Sex and the City" actor Chris Noth has been fired from "The Equalizer" amid sexual assault allegations.
- At least two women have come forward to make sexual assault allegations against the actor.
- Noth's "Sex and the City" costars have expressed support for Noth's accusers.
Chris Noth, who is starring in the "Sex and the City" reboot "And Just Like That..." will no longer be part of the CBS series "The Equalizer" in the wake of sexual assault allegations against the actor.
Universal Television and CBS made a joint announcement Monday that the "Sex and the City" actor would no longer be part of filming "effective immediately."
Allegations against the Mr. Big actor first appeared in a story reported last week by The Hollywood Reporter. Noth vehemently denied the allegations, which date back to 2004 and 2015.
"The accusations against me made by individuals I met years, even decades, ago are categorically false. These stories could've been from 30 years ago or 30 days ago — no always means no — that is a line I did not cross," Noth said in a statement to the Reporter.
On Monday, Noth's "And Just Like That..." co-stars Cynthia Nixon, Kristin Davis, and Sarah Jessica Parker released a statement in support of Noth's accusers.

"We are deeply saddened to hear of the allegations against Chris Noth," the statement read in part. "We support the women who have come forward to share their painful experiences."
One of the women who accused Noth of assaulting her said his reprisal of his Mr. Big character on the "Sex and the City" sequel "And Just Like That…" prompted her to speak out about the actor.
Noth's demise in the first episode of the show led to widespread attention.
Noth has played a former CIA director on "The Equalizer," which stars Queen Latifah. Noth will appear in at least one upcoming episode.
Noth's representatives had no immediate comment on "The Equalizer" decision.
