Kevin Spacey to star in controversial role as sex abuse investigator

The actor returns to work after receiving several allegations of sexual harassment.

Kevin Spacey's career changed forever at the end of October 2017 when he was accused of sexual harassment by actor Anthony Rapp, to which several people joined some time later.

Amid this accusations and his following public statement in which he subtly confirmed the sexual abuse allegations, Hollywood decided to turn its back on him and since then he has not participated in any film, and was even disassociated from House of Cards, a series in which he starred. Now, he has just signed on to work in 'L'uomo Che Disegno Dio' to play a very particular character.

On October 30, 2017, the actor released a public statement in which he stated that he didn't "remember the encounter" with Anthony Rapp. However, he apologized "for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior."

The film will tell the story of a blind artist who develops the prodigious ability to make portraits of people based solely on their voices, which eventually catapults him to fame. The 61-year-old actor will have a small role playing a policeman, while the cast also includes Vanessa Redgrave and Franco Nero.

The film will be shot in Italy but no date has yet been announced for the start of filming. Meanwhile, Kevin Spacey remains unconvicted of any of the allegations made against him.
