Kevin Spacey confesses; Hollywood hardest hit
by Tiana Lowe
 | December 25, 2018 04:22 PM

After decades of alleged predation protected by Hollywood and a year of public ignominy, the walls are finally closing in on Kevin Spacey. And after his latest stunt, his lawyers may have to rely on an insanity defense.

Nantucket authorities announced that Spacey faces a felony sexual assault charge and will be arraigned on indecent assault and battery on Jan. 7, 2019. Like any normal person accused of multiple instances of workplace sexual harassment and assault of child and teenage boys, Spacey broke his year of public silence, seemingly in response to the charges, with a video of him evidently adopting his fictional character Frank Underwood, the ex-president from "House of Cards" who exploits people for sex and then murders them.

He never explicitly says he's playacting the role in the video, titled "Let Me Be Frank," but between his invocation of the character's Southern accent and his conflation of Underwood's demise with his own actual one, Spacey finally confesses. He's as guilty in real life as Frank was in the "House of Cards" universe.

I caught his video on my feed yesterday. Then saw the charges this morning. Stranger times.

"Only The Toes Know".

That was an epic ark for the Mel Profitt story line in the series.  When Vinnie Taranova banged Mel's sister it was all over for The toes

That video is menacing and creepy as hell. I can't imagine what he thought he was doing in making that.
You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.
If they kill their own with no conscience, there is nothing to stop them from killing you.

He was trying to be Frank Underwood. And criticizing the last season of “House of Cards” which I have to agree with him, I didn’t like as much. I really missed him in it.

But it was a little weird. The ring part made sense only if you saw the sixth season. I won’t spoil it if you haven’t. But he’s right. We never saw the body. Or the coffin. Or the tombstone.

The ending on the British version was much better and cleaner.

Kevin Spacey one of few #MeToo prosecutions
By Sean Philip Cotter
Boston Herald
PUBLISHED: December 28, 2018 at 12:01 am | UPDATED: December 28, 2018 at 6:36 am

Prosecutions such as the Nantucket charges against Kevin Spacey encourage victims of sexual assault to come forward, advocates say.

The #MeToo movement began nearly a year and a half ago, with people making accusations of sexual impropriety against powerful men. Many of the celebrities, business executives and other higher-ups lost their jobs, but few faced prosecution, though several investigations remain open.  ...

Police say Spacey repeatedly groped the then-18-year-old son of former WCVB anchor Heather Unruh in an upscale Nantucket bar in July 2016. Unruh’s son told Nantucket police that the famous actor stuck his hand down the teen’s pants — and that he shot a Snapchat video of Spacey’s hand on him, according to court documents.  ...

I have decided to officially and formally not apologize. I'm not sorry at all, even slightly.

    Indeed, I especially want to convey my absence of remorse to anyone who was offended by what I said. If you are the sort of person who gets twisted into knots when someone articulates a point of view that differs from your own, then you are exactly the sort of person who should never receive an apology for a differing point of view — if I were offering one, which, again, I'm not.

I suspect the dude misses acting so much he couldn't pass up the chance to perform again ... even if it proved disastrous to any potential comeback. Not that I think a comeback is ever gonna happen.
