Weinstein Accuser Rosanna Arquette Said She Couldn’t Find Work, So Ryan Murphy Cast Her in ‘Ratched’Rosanna Arquette has been cast on Ryan Murphy’s upcoming Netflix series, “Ratched,” starring and executive produced by Sarah Paulson.

Paulson made the announcement herself Monday, saying the decision to add the actress to the show came after she and Murphy read interviews where Arquette said she was struggling to find work after being one of the first women to make sexual misconduct accusations against Harvey Weinstein.

“The story of Rosanna Arquette is a triumphant one- but it’s also disturbing,” Paulson wrote in an Instagram post Monday. “She was one of the first women to publicly speak out about Harvey Weinstein. I was stirred by several of her recent interviews where she was quoted as saying she couldn’t find work -or representation -this seems a direct consequence of her bravery. I am producing a new Netflix show, RATCHED, with Ryan Murphy- and we decided this could not stand.”

Paulson continued: “Her body of work -from Desperately Seeking Susan to Pulp Fiction and beyond, has always been deeply inspiring to both of us. So there will be a multi-episode arc for this extraordinary actress. Ratched starts shooting Wednesday and I say with great pride- welcome to our family, Rosanna. I am thrilled to be in a position, due to the empowerment of my friend and collaborator, Ryan Murphy, not to just act in a piece, but hire the talent showcased in it, as well.”
