'House Of Cards' Will Not Continue With Kevin Spacey, Netflix Confirm

The fate of the show is up in the air

Following the sexual assault and harassment allegations against Kevin Spacey, the producers of House of Cards are rushing to figure out a way for the show to live on without Frank Underwood (Spacey), the show's lead. The production assistant accusing Spacey of sexual assault claimed that while he was in a auto with Spacey a few minutes away from the set, the actor (who was driving) put his hands down the production assistant's trousers. "But if I did behave then as he describes, I owe him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior", he said.

After arriving on set, the assistant says he helped Spacey's belongings to the trailer on set and while they were in the trailer, the actor had cornered him, blocking his exit and making inappropriate contact. When the staffer told Spacey he wasn't comfortable with the situation, he said Spacey became "visibly flustered" and left the set for the rest of the day.

The production assistant alleges he was driving Spacey to the set inside an Abingdon warehouse when Spacey put his hand between his legs.

He said: "I have no doubt that this type of predatory behavior was routine for him and that my experience was one of many and that Kevin had few if any qualms about exploiting his status and position". That must be good news for the cast and crew, who can get a safer working environment, free of a predator, and continue to have a steady income.

10-Year-Old Immigrant Who Was Detained After Surgery Is Released
Her release came after United States District Judge Fred Biery rejected a request to have her released from federal custody. Immigration advocates said the case shows the harmful extent of President Donald Trump's hard line on immigration policies.

British police confirmed Friday that they had opened an investigation into an allegation of sexual assault from a man in 2008, although officers never identify the subject of an inquiry unless and until they are charged.

CNN reported that eight current or former "House of Cards" workers claimed that Spacey made the production a "toxic" workplace and one ex-employee alleged the actor sexually assaulted him.

A spokesperson from the streaming service also shared that they will not be moving forward with the release of their movie "Gore", which also stars Spacey.

Another ex-crew member said: "There was one instance [when] a grip bent over to pick something up and his ass crack was showing, and Kevin Spacey made a sexual comment about it". Spacey's response was to publicly come out as a gay man via Twitter.
