Kevin Spacey was first spotted on a film set on US soil and got his new film Peter Five Eight on August 24 in Dunsmuir, California.
The controversial 62-year-old actor was seen dressed all in black and lit a cigarette in what marks his second film role since numerous allegations of sexual assault came to light in 2017 and put his career to the test.
More than 20 men have accused the former House Of Cards star of sexual misconduct, but Spacey continues to deny all allegations of assault.

Spacey was seen on set surrounded by a small number of production staff wearing a black turtleneck sweater and matching trousers with a wool overcoat.
The actor looked relatively better overall, as at one point he flashed a smile and lit a cigarette before shooting some scenes.
He reportedly filmed “24 hours a day” this week in the small Northern California town TMZ.
In May, he landed his first movie role in nearly four years, L’uomo che disegno Dio, which translates to The Man Who Drew God, which was shot in Italy.
He never commented publicly on the role, but the film’s director, Franco Nero, said: ABC news in May: ‘I am very happy that Kevin has agreed to my film. I think he’s a great actor and I can’t wait to start the film.”

Spacey has been on the receiving end of the cancellation culture and the #MeToo movement since 2017 after 20 young men reported sexual misconduct by him between 1995 and 2013 at London’s theatre, the Old Vic.
Netflix dropped him from House Of Cards, and after that, he’s remained stealthy despite numerous lawsuits and an onslaught of assault allegations – all of which he has denied.
The first to claim an attack on Spacey was RENT star Anthony Rapp who recounted: Buzzfeed news in October 2017, that in 1986, when he was just 14, a then 26-year-old Spacey climbed into bed on top of him after a party and made a sexual advance.
spacey tweeted in response that he was “shocked” and did not remember the encounter he called “inappropriate drunken behavior.”
In the second half of the tweet, he shared that he chose “to live as a gay man” and said he would “examine my own behavior.”

A second theater actor, Roberto Cavazos, also corroborated the story with his own, saying he had “a few unpleasant encounters” with Spacey who pinched him at one point.
Just days later, the two-time Oscar winner was kicked out of his CAA agency and announced that same day that he would seek “evaluation and treatment.”
By mid-November of that year, 20 men over 18 had come forward to accuse him of “a range of inappropriate behavior,” including behavior that made them uncomfortable with inappropriate touching.
In April 2018, the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office announced that they were investigating a 1992 West Hollywood assault allegation and two weeks later shared that there was a second investigation into a 2016 Malibu incident involving a masseuse was involved.
In September 2018, he was sued by the masseuse who said the American Beauty star had forced him to touch his genitals. The man claimed he had suffered emotional pain and suffering, but Spacey’s lawyers claimed the meeting was consensual.

Kevin was not charged for the alleged 1992 incident, as the ban had expired and the victim was not a minor.
In addition, the The LA County District Attorney’s Office dropped charges against him by the masseuse because the alleged victim died during the investigation, and no case could be proven without a victim. The lawsuit was dismissed.
Another incident involved a teenager on Nantucket Island, Massachusetts in 2016, where he allegedly smeared the victim with alcohol, unzipped his pants and groped his genitals.
He was charged with indecent assault but pleaded not guilty to the charges. After the victim invoked his Fifth Amendment right to self-incrimination while testifying about a missing cell phone — which the victim claimed initially had footage via snapchat and textual evidence of the incident — Nantucket prosecutors dropped the assault charge. .
“The complaining witness was informed that if he chose to continue invoking his Fifth Amendment right, the case would be unable to proceed,” District Attorney Michael O’Keefe said in a statement. A civil procedure was also withdrawn by the victim.

The latest allegation comes from production company Media Rights Capital (MRC) that is suing him and seeking millions in damages after alleging in a 2019 lawsuit that he groped a production assistant on set, The Hollywood Reporter.
Multiple sources told THR that Spacey “groped the PA” on set, who had been tasked with taking the actor to hospital after injuring his hand during a promotional shoot for the show.
The assistant would later have complained to a supervisor about the incident. It is also alleged that he groped an actor who wanted to audition for the show.
DailyMail.com had contacted representatives for the actor, who were so far unavailable for comment.
The company claims that Spacey’s alleged misconduct devalued the show, which was eventually canceled by Netflix.

Spacey has reportedly filed a counterclaim against the independent production company, alleging the allegations of sexual misconduct and assault against him are “exaggerated.”
In his claim, Spacey claims that MRC still owes him money, claiming they failed to pay him after the first round of sexual misconduct allegations he faced in 2017, when Anthony Rapp alleged that a then 26-year-old Spacey sexually assaulted him. tried to attack when he was 14 in 1986.
Spacey alleges that MRC illegally withheld his compensation after the multitude of allegations.
