Kevin Spacey Receives More Accusations From House of Cards Staff

The fate of the show is up in the air

We will continue to work with MRC during this hiatus time to evaluate our path forward as it relates to the show.

Spacey, who has been dumped by his publicist and agents at CAA, is seeking "evaluation and treatment" in the wake of the sexual abuse allegations against him. Netflix and Media Rights Capital, who produce the show, have also been looking at options for spinoffs, one likely scenario involving a spinoff focusing on Doug Stamper (Michael Kelly).

I'm glad that Netflix has put its foot down and insisted that Spacey have no involvement with the upcoming season, while still leaving room for the show to continue without him. The question now is whether the writers will kill off Frank - certainly well within the show's established tone - or figure out another way to explain his absence.

MRC said it was "deeply troubled" by the latest allegations, had implemented a complaint hotline and offered crisis counsellors and legal advisors to the crew, and would "thoroughly investigate" all claims formally brought to its attention.

New allegations of sexual misconduct are being leveled against actor Kevin Spacey. One such person included actor and filmmaker Tony Montana, who told Radar Online that Spacey once groped him, grabbing his "whole package" while at a Los Angeles bar; Spacey then followed him into a restroom.

Mexican actor Roberto Cavazos also claimed he fended off two "unpleasant" advances that "bordered on harassment" while at The Old Vic - the London theatre where Spacey was an artistic director from 2003-15. The actor wrote a lengthy post Sunday in response to Rapp's revealing Buzzfeed interview, which was published earlier that evening. His career lies in ruins, and he is also subject to police investigations in London, Los Angeles, and NY.

The Old Vic was "not now in a position to comment on specifics", it said. The man said: "I told him, 'I don't think I'm ok with this, I don't think I'm comfortable with this". Spacey never denied those allegations, instead pointing the finger at his alcohol use at the time and using the opportunity to come out as gay, a decision that earned him scorn from critics wondering if he was trying to deflect outrage away from himself in the process.
