The career and reputation of actor Kevin Spacey has taken a severe beating in the last week, and the hits keep coming. The actor has had dozens of sexual harassment claims lodged against him by men of all ages. Some of the alleged incidents occurred as recently as a month ago, and the latest dates back to the early 1980’s. The actor’s hit show ‘House of Cards’ on Netflix has an uncertain future, but Spacey himself was fired from the show because of all of the harassment claims against the Oscar winning actor.
The son of Academy Award winning actor Richard Dreyfuss has now also come forward to accuse Spacey of groping him when he was 18 years old in 2008. Harry Dreyfuss an actor now 27 says Spacey grouped and propositioned him as his father Richard was seated only feet away. The incident occurred in 2008 in London at Spacey’s apartment. Dreyfuss accompanied his father to Spacey’s apartment to watch the men read lines together for the play ‘Complicit’. The play was being directed by Spacey and starred Richard Dreyfuss. Harry claims that when his father was out of the immediate area, Spacey put his hand on the young man’s thigh, and wouldn’t remove it, no matter what the younger Dreyfuss did.
He said he was shocked, that Spacey who he thought of as a hero, would ever do such a thing. Further he couldn’t believe it was happening as his father was in such a close proximity. The elder Dreyfuss heaped praise upon his son. He took to twitter and said” I love my son @HarryDreyfuss more than I could explain with all the words in the world. And I am so incredibly proud of him right now.” The recent disclosures have cost Spacey millions of dollars of revenue, with ‘Netflick’ also canceling a movie project about Gore Vidal staring Spacey.
