In the early 1990s, Masterson appeared in both Beethoven’s 2nd and Cybill, in which he played the lead role of Justin. After appearing in the television series Cybil for the third and fourth seasons, Masterson decided to move on from the show and instead tried out for a show that was at first called Teenage Wasteland but was subsequently renamed That ’70s Show. Masterson’s audition was initially opposed by the original casting director for That ’70s Show, Debby Romano, due to the fact that he was a little bit older than the rest of the ensemble, but she ultimately gave in and allowed him to audition. She added that “he came in and he was just so humorous,” and that he redefined where the role was heading and made the role of Steven Hyde the “tough, funny guy.” She also stated that he changed the direction the role was headed in.

Danny Masterson’s Net Worth: Legal Issues
In 2017, four different women accused Masterson of sexual assault and came out with their charges. Danny disputed all of the allegations that were made against him, and the police began an inquiry into the matter. As a direct result of this information coming to light, Masterson was fired from his role on “The Ranch,” and his talent agency, United Talent Agency, broke all relations with him. More complaints were made, and in 2019, the four women who had initially accused Danny of stalking and harassing them filed a lawsuit against him and the Church of Scientology for their actions.
These women stated that they had been harassed by Scientologists in cars, recorded without their consent, and chased by Scientologists in cars. Chrissie Bixler, the wife of the well-known singer Cedric Bixler-Zavala, was one of the four women. Cedric asserted that Masterson had sexually assaulted his wife, and that Masterson’s animals were being given rat poison wrapped in raw meat rolls for some unexplained reason (presumably by members of the Church of Scientology). The specifics of these accusations are really upsetting, and they include allegations that Danny drugged women and threatened them with guns.
Masterson was legally charged with the crime of rape against three different women in June of 2020. According to the allegations, the first incident occurred in 2001, while the other two took place, respectively, in 2003. The ages of these women ranged from 23 to 28, inclusive. This was the conclusion of a probe that had been going on for the previous three years, having started in 2017. In the event that Danny is found guilty, the maximum amount of time he might spend behind bars is 45 years.
