Three More Men Accuse Kevin Spacey of Sexual Misconduct

As the fallout continues following Anthony Rapp’s initiation allegation against Kevin Spacey, three more men have gone public to BuzzFeed and accused the actor of varying degrees of sexual misconduct.

Justin Dawes told the publication that, when he was 16 and Spacey was 29, Spacey invited him and a friend over to his apartment to watch “Chinatown” after they met at a performance of a play Spacey was performing in at the time. Once he was there, however, Dawes alleged that Spacey instead made them cocktails and played pornography on the television.

While Dawes said the situation was “sleazy and manipulative,” he said it was not “intimidating or pushy.”

“We all had a drink, and we were kind of like, ‘Oh, no one else is coming?’ And he’s like, ‘Oh, no one else decided to come,’ and he never mentioned that this porn was playing,” Dawes said. “It was really awkward.”

Another accuser — a journalist who chose to remain anonymous — said he interviewed Spacey in the early 2000s and while all was normal while they were in the actor’s office at the Old Vic theater, Spacey invited him out to a club afterward. There, the journalist alleged, Spacey began groping him, reaching between his legs and grabbing his genitals. The journalist said he told Spacey that he was in a serious relationship with a woman and, when he tried to leave the club, Spacey was furious

“This man was screaming in my face outside of the main bar area, red-faced, spit flying out of his mouth, screaming at me with fury because I didn’t want to f— him,” he described. “He was actually saying that I did want to and I was a coward. That was his tactic. It was unbelievable.”

The journalist went on to say that he didn’t run a story about his sexual misconduct because he didn’t want to out Spacey as a gay man. He felt empowered to speak out only after Rapp went public.

Another accuser, Mark Ebenhoch, said that, while he was on the set of 1995 film “Outbreak,” Spacey often had a group of young men who would hang out in his trailer. One day, Ebenhoch said, he was approached by one of Spacey’s assistants, who asked him to come to Spacey’s trailer.

“They asked flat out to engage in a sexual act. It was enough to stun me. It blew me away,” Ebenhoch told BuzzFeed.

The three new accusers add to the long list of men to come out against Spacey since “Star Trek: Discovery” actor Rapp said on Oct. 29 that Spacey made a pass at him when he was 14 years old. Since that story broke, Netflix has suspended production of “House of Cards” Season 6 (and is considering killing off his character, Frank Underwood), the Scotland Yard has opened an investigation into an alleged assault by Spacey, and CAA and publicist Staci Wolfe have parted ways with the actor.
