Ex-'House of Cards' showrunner: Kevin Spacey allegations are 'deeply troubling'

Production on the final season of the Netflix show "House of Cards" was halted earlier on Tuesday as Kevin Spacey, the star of the show, faces an accusation of unwanted sexual advance towards a 14-year-old boy more than thirty years ago. Production on the sixth season continues for now and it will be released in 2018.

Netflix are reportedly moving forward with plans for multiple spin-off series of House Of Cards, following the original show's cancellation. Michael Kelly (Doug Stamper) and Nathan Darrow (Edward Meechum).

Spacey served the office for a period of full ten years from 2004.

Earlier on Tuesday, the International Academy of Television Arts and Sciences said it was revoking a planned award for Spacey that he had been due to receive in NY on November 20. According to Montana, there were a number of Spacey's friends, Tony went up to order a drink and Kevin came up to him and put his arm around me.

In his statement, Spacey said that he didn't "remember the encounter" but apologised if he did behave as it is alleged.

He went on to say that Rapp's accusation "encouraged me to address other things about my life", and that "I know that there are stories out there about me".

"Kevin Spacey really tried to throw the entire LGBT community under a bus and call it solidarity in an effort to mask his personal failings", wrote civil rights activist DeRay Mckesson on Twitter.

EPS for TransCanada Corporation (TRP) Expected At $0.72
Crossmark Global Holdings Inc. purchased a new stake in shares of TransCanada Corporation in the third quarter worth $4,683,000. As of quarter end Intact Investment Management Inc. had disposed of a total of 226,890 shares trimming its stake by 46.1%.

Some were upset he had "thrown the gay community under the bus" and said Spacey's sexuality was "not a prop for [him] to hide behind".

"That said, I take reports of such behavior seriously and this is no exception".

"He was trying to seduce me", Rapp told Buzzfeed. I have loved and had romantic encounters with men throughout my life, and I choose now to live as a gay man.

"I am sorry to hear of Anthony Rapp's experience and subsequent suffering". In terms of fight or flight or freeze, I tend to freeze.

"That it seems perfectly valid to ask their actresses how their sex life is going or openly play (with) their students in front of the rest of the class, ask them to get undressed in the admission exams to one of the most respected theatre schools in the country", he said. Spacey would have been 26 at the time. Spacey was not scheduled to be on set on Monday.

Rapp said he considered taking legal action over the ordeal but was told by legal eagles that he didn't have a proverbial leg to stand on, as it would essentially be his word against another actor's.
