Spacey’s Comeback

It’s been a while since we’ve talked about Kevin Spacey, and I suspect he’d love it if we didn’t have anything to talk about.  After all, he’s trying to salvage the remains of his tattered career with not one but TWO films.  Since there’s a yin to every yang, Spacey also has four new sexual assault charges.  Let’s start with the two new films.  The first is a thriller that was shopped around Cannes.  Peter Five Eight is already completed and finds Spacey starring alongside Rebecca De Mornay – and, may we ask in all sincerity, what rock did she climb out from under?  Spacey also plans to film 1242 – Gateway to the West in Hungary and Mongolia in October.

As to the four new sexual assault charges, they come from three men in the UK – which means one of them had a bonus round.  The announcement came from the UK’s Crown Prosecution Service Special Crime Division – which is too cumbersome a title to name a TV show after.  There are four offences “of sexual assault, contrary to section 3(1) of the Sexual Offences Act 2003”.  The other charge is an offence “of causing a person to engage in penetrative sexual activity without consent, contrary to Sections 4(1) and (4) of the Sexual Offences Act 2003” – which I think is somewhat self-explanatory.  To add insult to injury, Spacey’s brother Randy Fowler made a statement: “It’s not surprising to me that eventually they would’ve gathered enough evidence to pursue the four charges against him – I think the reckoning is going to happen.”
