According to TMZ, Crews and lawyers representing the suspected agent Adam Venit have agreed on a doctor to administer the test. A stipulation filed in the civil lawsuit requires Crews to take the evaluation which is 7 hours long. The extensive exam will include a “comprehensive psycho-social and medical history and the administration of mental status testing and psychological testing,” according to the court documents.
The Brooklyn Nine-Nine star was one of the first men in Hollywood to share his #MeToo story on social media. Along with his civil suit, he filed a criminal complaint against Venit with the LAPD which is still being investigated. As the investigation takes place Crews remains signed to and managed by WME the talent agency Venit founded.
