Kevin Spacey Movie Comeback: Accusers Condemn Actor’s Newest Gig Following Sexual Abuse Claims
Kevin Spacey is making a movie comeback this 2021 after being away from the spotlight for years following claims of sexual abuse.
Though many are excited to be able to watch him on the big screen once again, his newest acting gig isn't sitting well with some of his sexual assault accusers.
Mark Ebenhoch, who spoke to a news outlet of his feelings towards Spacey's new role in an Italian film.
The actor will be playing a cop investigating a man who was wrongfully accused of sexually abusing children.
Ebenhoch's, who claims he was solicited on a film set to have sex with the former Hollywood A-list actor, first thought was "'What the hell?!?!'"
He believes that casting Spacey for the role was "absurd" given that he had an alleged history of sexual misconduct and that the movie would be dealing with the same topic and concern.
While the victim says that he's still waiting for the "American Beauty" actor to publicly apologize to the people he was allegedly abused and taking full responsibility for the alleged misconduct, he is hoping that producers of Kevin Spacey's new movie this 2021 know that the actor has changed his ways.
He's also praying that Spacey isn't the same man who had alleged escapades with young men in movie sets.
Ebenchoch also said that producers should immediately fire the actor if he gets out of line and that people on set should keep an eye on Kevin Spacey.
Where is Kevin Spacey Now 2021?
News of accusers' outrage comes after it was widely reported that he's set for an acting return for an Italian movie titled "L'uomo Che Disegno Dio," or "Th Man Who Drew God," directed by Franco Nero.

The movie's production will be set in Italy and will also star the director's wife, Vanessa Redgrave.
