Kevin Spacey To Act In First Movie Since Sexual Assault Allegations

Spacey will play a police detective in the Italian film The Man Who Drew God.

Disgraced star Kevin Spacey has landed his first film role since a multitude of sexual assault allegations were raised against him. As reported by ABC News, Spacey will appear in the Italian movie The Man Who Drew God.

The film will be directed by veteran Italian actor Franco Nero (Die Hard II, Django), who confirmed Spacey's involvement. "I'm very happy Kevin agreed to participate in my film," he said. "I consider him a great actor and I can't wait to start the movie."

According to the Guardian, Spacey's will play a "small role" as a police detective, who is investigating charges of sexual abuse against an artist played by Nero. Nero's wife Vanessa Redgrave will also appear.

The first allegations of sexual misconduct were levelled against Spacey in 2017, by a number of men working with Spacey at the Old Vic theatre in London between 1995 and 2013. Star Trek Discovery actor Anthony Rapp also accused Spacey of sexual assaulting him when he was 14, and in 2018 Spacey was charged with indecent assault on a teenager in Massachusetts. This charge was later dropped, and Spacey has continued to claim he is innocent of all accusations.

As a result of these allegations, Spacey was dropped from the final season of the Netflix hit House of Cards. He was also replaced in Ridley Scott's movie All the Money in the World, with the late Christopher Plummer playing his role in reshoots. The last movie he appeared in was 2018's Billionaire Boys Club, which was shot before the allegations broke.
