Bill Cosby is out of prison and is already feeling excited to return to our screens again!
Cosby’s publicist; Andrew Wyatt told The Times that the veteran actor is “enthusiastic” and he wants to get back in performance — and much more.
“In his physical appearance, he is exuberant. In his mental state, he is exuberant. In his emotions and humour, he is exuberant,” The comedian is “colorful and powerful – as much as we have More powerful than I’ve ever seen,” says Andrew Wyatt.
Cosby, 83, is currently with his family, Wyatt said, a week after his conviction on three counts of aggravated indecent assault against Andrea Constand was overturned. But plans are underway to bring the “The Cosby Show” star back on stage in the US, Canada and London, Wyatt said.
Wyatt said that Cosby’s next work would weave the “old story” of the infamous comic with commentaries on his life today and “involve human rights and civil rights” as Cosby based his own experiences on criminal justice reform and prison. works to improve.
Cosby “gives you a formula without preservatives,” said his rep.
Recall that Cosby was convicted of drugging and sexually assaulting Constand in April 2018 and was later sentenced to three to 10 years in prison, a term he was serving at a maximum-security state facility in Pennsylvania. They were the only criminal charges brought against Cosby, who has been accused of sexual misconduct by dozens of women.
Cosby’s team — including legal staff — is yet to work out details about whether audiences, promoters, and “media rebels … who fuel hatred” will be investigated, Wyatt said, but he remains unconvinced of the hecklers and this. Not too worried about the kind. Also, he said, “It’s not happening tomorrow.” They have time.
Also in the works, According to Wyatt: A Book, Written by Frederick WilliamsIn , Cosby and Wyatt will be shown talking through both their trials (civilian and criminal) and talking about the artist’s experiences while in prison. They will also discuss the strategies that Cosby and his team used to get them to do it all.
Additionally, production almost takes on a five-part documentary about the nine-time Grammy winner from “Venus and Serena” director Michelle Major, which will include the comic’s recent experiences in the legal system. Cosby still has to sit down for his interview.
Meanwhile, his release from prison shocked social media last week and landed his longtime friend and former “Cosby Show” costar Phylicia Rashad in hot water when she tweeted her support. (She later apologized.)
As far as Cosby’s sentence was overturned on a technicality by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, which found that his right to due process was violated, Wyatt held that the US Constitution “[wasn’t] We have been given as a suggestion. It was a mandate.”
Cosby was found not innocent by the state high court. Rather, it was found that she had entered into a 2005 settlement with a former prosecutor that protected her from criminal prosecution in exchange for a statement at Constand’s civil trial. In that civil complaint, Cosby settled a $3.4 million settlement with a former Temple University employee.
The attorney who criminally prosecuted Cosby did so despite that agreement—which was never put into writing—violating Cosby’s 5th Amendment against self-incrimination.
“When a prosecutor makes an unconditional promise of non-prosecution, and when the defendant relies on that guarantee to the detriment of his constitutional right to testify, the principle of fundamental fairness that governs the due process of law in our criminal justice system underscores, demanding that the promise be enforced,” Justice David Ann Weicht wrote in the court’s majority opinion.
Sixty women have accused Cosby of sexual misconduct dating back to the early 1970s when he was in his 30s.
“I never changed my stance and neither did my story. I have always maintained my innocence,” Cosby said. tweeted a statement on June 30, the day of his release. “Thank you to all my fans, supporters, and friends who stood by me in this ordeal. Special thanks to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court for upholding the rule of law. “
In a statement last week, Montgomery County (PA) Dist. Atti. Kevin Steele said that Cosby “set free on a procedural issue that is irrelevant to the facts of the crime.”
“My hope is that this decision will not reduce the reporting of sexual assault by victims. We still believe that no one is above the law – including the rich, famous, and powerful,” he said.
We think this is rather too early for Cosby or what do you guys think?
