The announcement of the Emmy-winning political satire's end came after Star Trek actor Anthony Rapp's claimed Spacey attempted to seduce him when he was 14.
Anthony Rapp claimed that Spacey attempted to seduce him in 1986 - an incident Spacey says he does not remember. Spacey has apologized for the incident, which he said he doesn't recall but would have stemmed from 'drunken behavior.' He also spoke publicly for the first time about being gay.
In 1984, he appeared in a production of David Rabe's Hurlyburly, in which he rotated through each of the male parts (he would later play Mickey in the film version). In 1986, he appeared in a production of Sleuth in a New Jersey dinner theatre.
His prominence as a stage actor began in 1986, when he was cast opposite Jack Lemmon, Peter Gallagher and Bethel Leslie as Jamie, the eldest Tyrone son in Jonathan Miller's lauded production of Eugene O'Neill's Long Day's Journey into Night.
In October 2017 Spacey was accused by actor Anthony Rapp of making a sexual advance toward him when Rapp was 14.
