Move over North Korea potentially declaring war over a movie, it looks like a Christmas entertainment news story has topped it for weirdness.
On the same morning The Boston Globe has announced that actor Kevin Spacey has been charged with felony sexual assault, the actor released a three-minute video of himself as his “House of Cards” character President Francis J. Underwood.
Speaking to the camera like he does on the show, along with adopting Underwood’s U.S. southern accent, he delivers a monologue that seemingly comments on both the way that show handled his off screen death and exit, alludes to the wider allegations against the actor himself, and pushes the message that you shouldn’t always believe what you hear.
The video was released on the actor’s official YouTube video account and then shared via his social media feed. The police charge relates to allegations that he assaulted the teenage son of a Boston-area news anchor in a Nantucket bar in 2016. Spacey is reportedly set to be arraigned on a charge of indecent assault and battery early next month.
