Kevin Spacey is About to Film His Comeback Movie

We haven’t seen much of Kevin Spacey since Anthony Rapp accused the actor of trying to have sex with him when he was 14. He’s periodically emerged in strange videos where he appears to be in character as Frank Underhill from House of Cards, but aside from that he’s kept a pretty low profile.

That’s about to change as Spacey has been cast in his first film role since getting #metoo’d.

ANC News confirmed that Spacey will appear in L’uomo Che Disegno Dio, a film by Django himself, Franco Nero. The English title is The Man Who Drew God and it’s about a wrongly accused pedophile, which is surprisingly not the role Spacey was cast in. I guess he didn’t want to be typecast.

“I’m very happy Kevin agreed to participate in my film,” Nero told ABC News. “I consider him a great actor and I can’t wait to start the movie.”

I’m sure he is because whatever else he may be, Kevin Spacey is in fact a great actor and I doubt he would be performing in Italian indy films if he could other work, regardless of how awesome the Spaghetti Western the director starred in was. Vanessa Redgrave is also attached to the project, and if you’re wondering how that happened, she’s married to Franco Nero.

If you’re reading this and you’re mad that Spacey is making a comeback and you don’t think he deserves to be in films anymore because of the allegations against him, I have great news for you: you get to decide that. If you don’t see this movie and enough people agree with you, then Spacey likely won’t get any more roles, especially not from big studios the way he used to.

”But wait, what if the movie is a success and people do go see the movie?” Well, then that’s what people want. That’s how capitalism works.

Personally, I don’t think Spacey will have a big comeback. The Oscars are already on thin ice with the public, and after NBC pulled the Golden Globes, those voters aren’t going to stick their neck out for Spacey. And this is absolutely the kind of movie that’s only made as Oscar bait, it’ll probably open in limited release two weeks before Christmas. The only way this movie will generate buzz is by people getting mad and wildly overreacting on Twitter.

Yeah, like that.
