Disgraced actor Kevin Spacey posted a bizarre video online today as it emerged he would be charged with sexual assault.
Spacey, an Academy Award winner best known in recent years for portraying Frank Underwood in House of Cards, is accused of assaulting a teenager at a bar in Boston in 2016, and will be arraigned on January 7.
He will face a charge of indecent assault and battery.
The alleged victim was the son of news anchor Heather Unruh, who levelled the accusation during an emotional news conference in November last year.
“I want to see Kevin Spacey go to jail,” Ms Unruh said. “I want to see Kevin Spacey have the hand of justice come down on him, not just for my son, but for the many others who have yet to speak their truth.”
She alleged Spacey bought alcohol for her then 18-year-old son before sticking his hand inside the young man’s pants and grabbing his genitals.
Her son fled the restaurant when Space went to the bathroom.
“The victim, my son, was a starstruck, straight, 18-year-old young man who had no idea that the famous actor was an alleged sexual predator or that he was about to become his next victim,” Ms Unruh said.
As the news of Spacey’s looming sexual assault charge was revealed, the actor posted a strange video in an apparent attempt to protest his innocence.
The three-minute clip, titled ‘Let Me Be Frank’, shows Spacey standing in front of a kitchen sink, and speaking in the voice of Frank Underwood.
