Andy Dick Had an On-Set Handler To Prevent Sexual Misconduct?

Talk about a red flag! Andy Dick’s decades-long history of sexual misconduct has received attention of late after he got charged with one count of sexual battery on July 2ndfor grabbing a woman’s rear-end and making lewd comments on the street in L.A.

Now, The Hollywood Reporter is claiming that a woman was once assigned to “butt in” on conversations Dick had on-set with younger actors, in an attempt to stamp out misconduct before it happened.

The woman, who wants to remain anonymous, tells THR that she worked with him on NBC’s short-lived sitcom Go Fish in 2001. Kieran Culkin, Kyle Sabihy, Taylor Handley, Will Friedle, Adam Brody and JoAnna Garcia Swisher starred.

While she got a gig as an extra, she was eventually hired by producers to prevent him from “cornering underage actors and saying nasty sexually explicit things,” she recalls.

They told her: “Any time you see Andy approach one of the actors, just butt into the conversation like, ‘Hey guys, what’s going on.’ In my 20-year-old mind, I knew that it was a shady situation, but I wasn’t worried about Andy Dick and so I said yes.”

Still, the plan wasn’t foolproof. She claims Dick attempted to lock one of the 19-year-old stars into a room and expose his penis.
