Jesse Williams leak: Take Me Out bosses install infrared cameras after nude scene emerges
nude footage of Jesse Williams in Take Me Out was shared on social media.The Grey’s Anatomy actor is currently performing at the Helen Hayes Theater on Broadway, alongside Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Patrick J Adams.In one scene, the 40-year-old appeared on stage completely naked in a shower scene, with a video of the intimate moment making the rounds on social media soon after, causing him to trend on Twitter.There was already a ban on the use of phones in the audience and viewers were asked to keep their devices in a pouch while watching, but organizers have reportedly stepped things up a gear, installing an infrared camera to monitor this more comprehensively.Peter Dean, the director of production for Second Stage, revealed that the security team put special cameras in place, allowing them to have a clearer picture of audience members.‘This will allow us to focus on an audience member who looks like they’re doing something suspicious, and assess whether they’re just going through a purse to get a breath mint or pulling out a phone,’ he told the New York Times.Ushers and the house manager will then be alerted if a phone is detected, and can decide whether to stop the show, or have the person in the audience removed.Take Me Out was written by Richard Greenberg and is currently playing in New York until next month.Much of it is set in the locker room of a professional baseball team, with an all-male cast that explores themes of homophobia, racism, class, and masculinity in sports.Jesse plays Darren Lemming, a baseball star who comes out as gay and is confronted with homophobic and racist prejudices.He has yet to speak out over the leak himself, but Second Stage Theater condemned the situation in a lengthy statement,

Jesse Williams nude Broadway leak branded ‘sexual harassment and appalling breach of consent’
trended on social media earlier this week after footage of him full-frontal nude during a Broadway production of play Take Me Out emerged online.While former Grey’s Anatomy star Williams had previously shrugged off the scene by claiming ‘it’s just a body’, an actors’ organisation has blasted the person who filmed the footage – which went against house rules.The act was also labelled ‘both sexual harassment and an appalling breach of consent.’Much of Take Me Out – written by Richard Greenberg and currently on at the Helen Hayes Theater in New York – is set in the locker room of a professional baseball team, with an all-male cast that explores themes of homophobia, racism, class, and masculinity in sports.Williams plays Darren Lemming, a mixed-race baseball star, who comes out as gay and is confronted with homophobic and racist prejudices off the field.Kate Shindle, president of the Actors’ Equity Association, which is made up of 51,000 members of the theatre industry, said in a statement: ‘We condemn in the strongest possible terms the creation and distribution of photographs and videos of our members during a nude scene.‘As actors, we regularly agree to be vulnerable onstage in order to tell difficult and challenging stories. This does not mean that we agree to have those vulnerable moments widely shared by anyone who feels like sneaking a recording device into the theater.

Jesse Williams trends after very naked footage of his (Grey’s) anatomy leaks following Broadway show
Wagatha Christie trial in London, think again, celeb fans.)Yes, social media was well and truly blowing up after footage of the actor on stage in Take Me Out, his Broadway debut, in which he appears nude, emerged on Tuesday.And you’d better believe thirsty punters are flocking to share their thoughts. And there are a whole heap of thoughts.While earlier in the day Jesse received a Tony nomination for best performance by an actor in a featured role in a play, for his portrayal of lead character Darren Lemming in the production, which opened in April, come night people were seeing his role trend for a whole other reason.It seems that while audience members are reportedly required to place their phones in locked sleeves to prevent recording during the show (now we know why), one flouted the rules and snapped a video of the actor on stage.In the footage, Jesse was seen in a shower scene completely starkers, which really puts the anatomy into Grey’s Anatomy, right? (Sorry, we had to).We can only imagine tickets are selling like hotcakes for the production, but for those who haven’t managed to snap up a seat there is always Twitter, with many losing their breakfast over the leaked footage.One punter wrote on social media: ‘Jesse Williams Tony campaign is in full swing I see,’ as another noted: ‘Jesse Williams really has me wondering is that what they be doing in all these Broadway plays??’Me watching that Jesse Williams video on repeat pic.twitter.com/vNsWKmRro5I hope Jesse Williams has an excellent dayNot me being five minutes late to work because I had to catch up on current events ie.
