Kevin Spacey to Seek ‘Evaluation and Treatment’

Actor Kevin Spacey is now seeking treatment in light of multiple allegations of sexual misconduct, Variety has learned.

Kevin Spacey is taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment,” said his representative in a statement to Variety. “No other information is available at this time.”

Mexican actor Roberto Cavazos and American documentary filmmaker Tony Montana have come forward with accounts of how Spacey allegedly made unwanted advances and even groped one of them. The new accusations follow the allegation by actor Anthony Rapp that Spacey sexually assaulted him in the 1980s when he was just 14 and Spacey was 26. Spacey apologized in a widely criticized statement in which he said he was “beyond horrified” by Rapp’s account, adding that he did not recall the incident.

Production on the sixth and final season of Netflix’s “House of Cards,” in which Spacey plays the lead role of Frank Underwood, has been suspended. In a statement to Variety, Netflix and Media Rights Capital said, “We view Kevin seeking treatment as a positive step. We continue to take this hiatus time to evaluate our path forward as it relates to the production and have nothing further to share at this time.”

Ridley Scott’s “All the Money in the World,” in which Spacey portrays oil tycoon J. Paul Getty, is scheduled to premiere Nov. 16 at the AFI Fest and hit theaters in December. Netflix is also behind “Gore,” an upcoming biopic starring Spacey as the late American writer Gore Vidal. Shooting on the project wrapped last month in Italy.

MasterClass pulled the Oscar winner’s $90 online class on acting from its service, telling Variety in a statement, “In light of recent events, MasterClass has closed enrollment in Kevin Spacey’s online class.”
