Actor Bryan Cranston has blasted fellow Hollywood heavyweight Kevin Spacey over the multiple allegations of sexual assault and harassment that have been brought against him, with the “Breaking Bad” star going so far as to declare that Spacey will never get another gig.
“He’s a phenomenal actor, but he’s not a very good person,” Cranston told the BBC. “His career now I think is over.”
Spacey, who has currently been accused of sexual misconduct by 15 different people who all have sordid stories about their encounters with the “House of Cards” star, has been excoriated by the LGBT community for coming out as gay to seemingly deflect from the first allegation.
Cranston claims that while he never witnessed Spacey behaving improperly and does not walk in Hollywood circles where such behavior is commonplace, “you know it has gone on.”
“There’s a disorder among all those people who use their power, their place or their status in any industry to overpower someone and force someone to do something that they don’t want to do,” he said. “It’s beyond disgusting. It’s almost animalistic. It’s a form of bullying. It’s a form of control. It’s almost always [done to] young vulnerable men and women who are starting their career.”
“That sort of experience goes unchecked until something like this happens,” he said in light of the groundswell of accusers coming forward with their stories of abuse at the hands of the rich and powerful.
Spacey became a Hollywood arch-villain at the end of October when actor Anthony Rapp claimed that he had been aggressively propositioned by Space over thirty years ago. Rapp was 14 years old at the time and Spacey was 26.
Since then, Spacey has been completely removed from the upcoming movie “All the Money in the World” and his role has been handed to actor Christopher Plummer – even though shooting had already wrapped up.
