Can Kevin Spacey ever work in Hollywood again?
The makers of his hit TV show House of Cards are discussing killing off his character while Ridley Scott has cut him from the upcoming movie All The Money In The World.
Just weeks before the film’s release, Spacey’s scenes as J Paul Getty have been reshot with Christopher Plummer.
Now Breakng Bad star Bryan Cranston says: “He’s a phenomenal actor, but he’s not a very good person. His career now I think is over.”
Cranston told the BBC: “That sort of experience goes unchecked until something like this happens. The pillars of what was are falling. Everything is being exposed.”
Spacey has been hit with a successions of allegations of sexual misconduct stretching back over his long and illustrious career. Fellow actor Anthony Rapp was the first to come forward, detailing disturbing scenes that happened when he was just 14 yeears old.
It’s not just the shocking allegations of what happened behind closed doors, the star is also under fire for his behaviour towards his co-stars on set.
Spacey’s Baby Driver co-star Jon Bernthal has accused him of being ‘a bully’.
Bernthal said: “Going on to that set and working with him, I wasn’t there much, but when I was there, he really rubbed me the wrong way. I thought he was a bit of a bully.
“I didn’t really care for the way he was behaving toward some of the other people on set.”
Spacey is now a subject of an investigation by the Metropolitan Police.
His behaviour is being seen as a symbol of endemic “animalistic” power abuses that have taken place in Hollywood, not just for the sexual harrassment and preying on young and vulnerable men and women in the industry.
Bernthal added: “I remember at the time thinking, ‘Man, if that was a woman that he was talking to, I would’ve done something, I would’ve said something. I was really happy to sort of get out of there for that reason, and I just remember losing a ton of respect for him.”
“I think it would be weak of me to sort of pile on about some sh** that I don’t know about. But the kind of man he was when I saw him, working with him, made me lose all respect for him and I was enormously disappointed.”
It seems uinimaginable that Spacey will ever be able to work in the industry again.
