Alice Wetterlund Calls Her 'Silicon Valley' Castmate T.J. Miller a 'Nightmare'
As we wrote last week, T.J. Miller has quietly begun to resurface after having been accused of sexual assault late last year and calling in a fake bomb threat earlier this year. Over the Fourth of July holiday, he made an appearance on Doug Benson’s podcast Doug Loves Movies, where Doug also promoted T.J. Miller and Cash Levy’s podcast, Cashing in with T.J. Miller, which has continued in spite of the fact that it is no longer affiliated with Nerdist.
One actress and comedienne who is not thrilled to see the T.J. Miller rehabilitation tour is Alice Wetterlund, who played Carla Walton for two seasons on Silicon Valley. In a series of tweets, Wetterlund — who called working with Miller “kind of a nightmare” — not only took issue with Miller, but the male cast members who enabled Miller on the set.
Yes! It is definitely time to rehabilitate TJ Miller’s career! We can’t afford to lose talent at a time like this, we need more—not less—comedic hijinks such as *checks notes* calling in a fake bomb threat— Alice Wetterlund (@alicewetterlund) July 17, 2018
Thank you! I hope to not ruin it for you, but TJ Miller was a bully and petulant brat and pretty much everyone who had any power on that (almost all male) set, including the male cast members, enabled him and were complicit in his unprofessionalism. They can fuck off forever. https://t.co/YxGHiSYMrJ— Alice Wetterlund (@alicewetterlund) July 18, 2018
I’m pretty open about this, and I don’t know if other women on the show had a different experience than me, but it was kind of a nightmare.— Alice Wetterlund (@alicewetterlund) July 18, 2018
Not a dumb question. One, I needed the job, two, it was my first recurring role and I had no idea it wasn’t always toxic and weird. Now I know!— Alice Wetterlund (@alicewetterlund) July 18, 2018
One thing we can be sure of, T.J. Miller won’t be invited onto Wetterlund’s podcast, Treks and the City, which dissects Star Trek: The Next Generation from a feminist perspective.
