As reported last Sunday, Oscar-nominated writer-director James Toback has been accused by a number of women of sexual harassment and misconduct.

At the time, the number of accusations reported to LA Times reporter Glenn Whipp was 31 women. In the space of less than a week, the number now stands at 301. Of these 301 women, two of them include Selma Blair and Rachel McAdams.

In a feature interview with Vanity Fair, both Blair and McAdams explained that Toback invited them both to his hotel room to discuss a role in his 2001 film, Harvard Man, and the discussion quickly turned sexual. Blair describes how Toback masturbated in front of her, explaining that she wasn't allowed to leave the hotel room "until I have release."

Blair then said that Toback threatened to have her killed if she spoke up about him. 

Meanwhile, Julieanne Moore tweeted LA Times reporter Glenn Whipp about Toback accosting her on the street in the '80s - twice. In fact, he even used the same language, according to Moore.

Toback denied the initial LA Times story, and has not commented publicly since the allegations broke.
