The price of doing business with predators is high. A new Netflix earnings report from the end of 2017 reveals that the streaming giant took a staggering $39 million write-down in disbanding the relationship with Hollywood abuser Kevin Spacey, both in shortening the final House of Cards season and shelving the actor’s Gore Vidal biopic.
Following his suspension from Netflix in the wake of a growing number of sexual assault and harassment allegations, Kevin Spacey has found himself at the center of another damning accusation. Harry Dreyfuss, son of actor Richard Dreyfuss, says he was also sexually assaulted by the Oscar-winning actor. The latest allegation has come to light just as a new report reveals that Sony may cancel its upcoming premiere of Ridley Scott’s All the Money in the World and potentially move the film, which stars Spacey, out of awards season altogether.
House of Cards isn’t the only drama changing plans in the wake of Kevin Spacey’s assault allegations. According to a new report, NBC’s This Is Us cut a brief reference to the controversial star from Tuesday’s Halloween episode.
House of Cards is approaching an understandable endpoint after six seasons and increasing scrutiny around Kevin Spacey, but the Underwoods’ legacy may yet continue. According to new reports, Netflix is going the Game of Thrones route with a number of potential spinoffs.
In honor of ‘Glengarry Glen Ross’s 25th anniversary, let's celebrate its staggeringly talented cast by pitting them against each other to see who comes out on top, much as the characters they play do for an hour and forty minutes onscreen.
