Kevin Spacey ditched by Netflix amid sexual harassment allegations

Kevin Spacey ditched by Netflix amid sexual harassment allegations

Production of the political drama has been halted as writers scramble to rewrite the Netflix drama's sixth and final season - perhaps with former President Underwood not in the script, sources told The Hollywood Reporter. Wolfe had been the one to issue the statement that Spacey was seeking "evaluation and treatment" just one day earlier.

The U.K. newspaper The Guardian reports Scotland Yard is looking into allegations that a suspect - which the tabloid The Sun alleges is Spacey - sexually assaulted another actor.

One of the accusers said the actor plied him with alcohol and asked him to watch homosexual pornography with him when he was 16-years-old.

A young production assistant who won't reveal his name told CNN Spacey exhibited unwanted sexual behavior toward him during those first years of filming.

Late Thursday evening, eight people came forward anonymously to accuse Spacey of creating a "toxic" work environment on the set of House of Cards.

Following the sexual assault and harassment allegations against Kevin Spacey, the producers of House of Cards are rushing to figure out a way for the show to live on without Frank Underwood (Spacey), the show's lead.

"It seems the only requirement was to be a male under the age of 30 for Mr Spacey to feel free to touch us", he wrote in a post on Facebook.

I was in a state of shock. The production assistant said that the harassment stopped for long enough that he felt okay about driving to the set with Spacey.

Thirty years ago, Spacey was a 27-year-old actor in NY.

London police said they had begun investigating an alleged 2008 sexual assault reportedly linked to Spacey. Spacey has also been dropped by his publicist and talent agency, CAA as allegations continue emerge. The Sun newspaper said the new allegation comes from a man who was in his early 20s at the time. The company "will not be involved with any further production of House of Cards that includes Kevin Spacey", and "will not be moving forward with the release" of Gore, a Gore Vidal biopic that starred and was produced by Spacey. In another blow to Spacey's wallet, a Dutch business forum canceled his headline appearance at their conference November 29 in Rotterdam.
