NEW YORK (AP) - Bill Cosby has been cut from a documentary about black stuntmen.

Producer Nonie Robinson said Tuesday that Cosby has been removed from “Painted Down.” The documentary is about the history of white stunt performers who were “painted down” to look black to double for black actors.

For the film, now in post-production, Cosby gave an interview about his experience with the practice on the 1960s TV series “I Spy.”

Robinson said the film, which also features Whoopi Goldberg, had been “standing by” Cosby. But after the latest release of depositions in which Cosby said he gave women Quaaludes in order to have sex with them, Robinson said axing him from the documentary “wasn’t difficult.”

More than two dozen women have accused Cosby of sexual misconduct in the past four decades.
