A former Hollywood insider spoke exclusively with Big League Politics to detail alleged sexual deviance of producer Bryan Singer, known for his work on “X-Men,” “The Usual Suspects,” and a host of popular television shows.
“[Singer] rolls up to set in a limo and an entourage of 5-6 boys in togas gets out with him,” a high level crew member who worked more than 15 years in Hollywood told Big League Politics, speaking on the condition of anonymity.
According to the source, none of the filming involved toga costumes that day.
“He has them sitting around at video village and when the crew starts lighting he pulls a few of them back to his trailer to bang it out for a few hours… loudly,” the source said.
“The crew waits and waits,” the source said. “No one dares ask the ages of the boys. Everyone really wants to assume they are of legal age, but no one can be certain. You just keep your mouth shut and do your work. But everybody knows.”
“‘House MD’ was shooting it’s first week, and they had to be shut down one night because that jackass had them working 20 hour days,” the source said. “And many long days were exacerbated by the rotating sex club that was his trailer.”
This particular incident occurred in 2005 or 2006 according to the source, but Singer’s sexual deviance was described as an “open secret” in Hollywood.
“It’s one of those open, common knowledge, everybody on set knows what’s going on,” the source said. “You walk back there, you hear the noises, somebody else comes back, and they’re like ‘Hey is Bryan ready to come back to set? We’re about ready to go’ and just the look on their face, you’re like ‘No, he’s busy.’ You know what it means. You know what’s going on.”
The source described a culture on set where everyone looks the other way for fear of losing their jobs.
“The producers either know, or they don’t care, or they don’t want to know,” the source said. “So if a regular crew guy goes over and starts to ask the wrong questions, or too many questions, all of a sudden you never get invited back or nobody answers their phone anymore.”
“You know the risk that you’re taking,” according to the source. “If you’re going to go to a producer or you’re going to go to the press, you damn well better have some hardcore, serious proof and a good retirement plan stashed away ’cause you’re never gonna be back on set, on stage.”
The source also described different “levels” of rumors in Hollywood. Some stories are just that – rumors. Still others, according to the source are legitimate “open secrets,” where dozens of people recount the same stories involving the same people.
“There’s like, The Inquirer sort of stories that people whisper about, but no one can really confirm,” the source said, “and then you have legitimate open secrets. You start hearing the same stories from credible people, and you realize that maybe one or two people heard some bullshit, exaggerated kind of story, but you start hearing it from five, six people that you know that aren’t given to that kind of gossip, and you go ‘Oh, okay.'”
Big League Politics reached out to a multiple Emmy Award-winning crew member for this report who refused to be interviewed as soon as Singer’s name was mentioned.
“I’m going to have to pass on this one,” said the crew member, who is still active at a high level in Hollywood. “I can only imagine what you’re going to ask me, but it sounds like career suicide.”
Singer founded Bad Hat Harry Productions in 1994. His IMDb page lists him as a producer on 41 movies and shows, including such hits as “House MD,” “Dirty Sexy Money,” and much of the “X-Men” series. He has directed some of the films in the “X-Men” series too. He is listed as the producer of “X-Men: Dark Phoenix,” slated to be released in 2019.
On December 7, Cesar Sanchez-Guzman accused Singer of sexually assaulting him in 2003, when Sanchez-Guzman was 17. A lawsuit was filed against Singer for the alleged incident.
