Richard Dreyfuss's son Harry alleges Kevin Spacey groped him as a teenager

Richard Dreyfuss's son Harry alleges Kevin Spacey groped him as a teenager

Kevin Spacey is at the centre of a sexual harassment scandal that so far involves a number of men, one of which is Anthony Rapp, best known for his role in Star Trek Discovery.

The play was called Complicit and was being put on in the Old Vic Theatre, where Spacey was serving as Artistic Director from 2004 until 2015.

"He knew he could fondle me in a room with my father and that I wouldn't say a word", Harry wrote.

He said of speaking up: "It wasn't until this year, when so many people have bravely come out with their stories, and the demand for a better world has gotten such broad support, that I saw my own story has value".

Treating it like it was no big deal made it easier for him to accept, he said. "If I could laugh at it, then surely I was not a victim".

In college, he said the story became less amusing as other people in theater heard him tell it and they responded by saying they knew someone else who was groped by Spacey.

"Finally (finally, finally) I became suspicious", Dreyfuss wrote.

While Harry said he'd go on to present the story as a amusing anecdote to acquaintances at parties and get-togethers, he eventually realized his encounter was far from a joke. "It wasn't a joke". "But I still never thought talking about it seriously was ever an option".

Following Rapp's allegation in a BuzzFeed interview, Spacey, 58, said in a post on Twitter he did not remember the alleged incident and announced he is living as a gay man. Freedman did not immediately respond to a request for comment by HuffPost on Sunday.

The teams says Ali is expected to return to "by mid-November" ahead of a tour match in Townsville starting Nov. 15. England's statement added: " Moeen Ali has aggravated his left side".

Harry says that at the time, it didn't even occur to him what Spacey may be trying to do, and he didn't want to say anything for fear of threatening the play.

That accuser, Justin Dawes, said he and a friend had been invited to Spacey's to watch "Chinatown" in 1988. Additionally, one of the eight people claims that Spacey sexually assaulted him.

"I've never had children in case that evil personality could be passed on", he told The Sun.

Richard Dreyfuss told Buzzfeed News that he was unaware of the groping incident at the time and that he was only made aware of it some years later when his son told him about it.

"Kevin followed me, sat down, and with considerable effort, slid his hand between my right hand and my right leg. And then I was starting to get annoyed by it, and that was pretty clear".

Harry said he got up and moved to the other side of the couch, but that Spacey followed him.

"That was his tactic".

Netflix also will not release a Gore Vidal biopic that was set to star the actor.
