Actor-comic Anthony Anderson, who starred last season in the short-lived WB sitcom All About the Andersons, has been accused of rape. A 25-year-old female extra on the Memphis set of his hip-hop film, Hustle & Flow, alleges that Anderson and assistant director Wayne Witherspoon forced her into a trailer, where she was fondled and forced to strip for nude photos. She says she fled the trailer unclothed when the attack was interrupted by a passerby. The two men have each been charged with one count of aggravated assault. Meanwhile, Anderson's publicist says he's "a happily married family man" and "absolutely denies the heinous charges."
