Kevin Spacey cut from Carol Burnett special
CBS/Kathleen Holloway(LOS ANGELES) — In the latest fallout from the allegations of sexual harassment against Kevin Spacey, Variety reports that the actor’s segment has been edited out of an upcoming CBS special celebrating the 50th anniversary of The Carol Burnett Show.
According to Variety, Spacey taped a part for the special in Los Angeles last month including performing a musical number with Burnett, Kristin Chenoweth and Bernadette Peters. A source tells Variety that there’s been no decision on what to do about the whole number, but Spacey will not be featured when the show airs December 3.
Spacey has been accused of groping actor Anthony Rapp when he was 14 and Richard Dreyfuss’ son, Harry, when he was 18. In an unconfirmed report from CNN, eight unnamed sources claimed that the actor harassed them on set of his Netflix show House of Cards. One person alleged that Spacey sexually assaulted him. Netflix and Media Rights Capital, the companies behind House of Cards, announced that production on the series had been suspended, and on Friday, Netflix stated that it had severed ties with the actor.
This week the American Film Institute film festival pulled the Spacey-led film All the Money in the Worldfrom the festival.
