Lost respect for Corey Feldman since he decided to try to profit from being a victim years ago... and now instead of being a champion for young actors who have been in the same boat, he'd still rather profit from his experiences.

Yeah, I agree, Charles. I believe Corey about what happened to him and other young actors, but it does seem he wants to profit from what happened instead of selflessly using his story to help others in the same situation.

The stories about Spacey liking teenage boys have been circulating for years. Seth MacFarlane made a joke on Family Guy about it in 2005.

Not until they finish filming and air the upcoming season though. I kind of figured the show was nearing the end of its run anyway, and this seemed more like a PR move by Netflix than anything. If they were actually planning on doing more seasons, it seems like they could always just kill Frank off especially with how the last season ended.

Agreed. Just going by the storyline, it deemes like the story was nearing its end. But maybe Netflix didn't want to reveal that it was ending before the season was actually released?

In any case, this be the worst coming-out-via-Twitter, ever.

Spacey's career will likely survive this. After all, raping a 13-year-old girl didn't stop Roman Polanski's career....

House of Cards' upcoming season has been suspended indefinitely.... 


Netflix is moving ahead with plans for a “House of Cards” spinoff.

I'm not so sure. He is being vilified in the UK (where his profile is high given his role as Artistic Director of the Old Vic for ten years) not least because he chose to conflate the accusation of sexual assault on a minor with his coming out as gay. Frankly, nobody cares that he is gay - it must surely must be one of the worst kept secrets in entertainment - but they do care when he resurrects prejudiced links between homosexuality and paedophilia.

Well, I can certainly be wrong - suspending production is a new wrinkle, for sure.

Smart move on Netflix's part. They have to wait and see if any other accusers come forth, with what kind of evidence. 

Spacey's statement was carefully worded but stupid. Basically he said, "Sorry, but not sorry, because I was drinking while gay".

Former New Jersey governor Jim McGreevy was somehow able to deflect potential corruption charges by coming out out the closet in a very public speech while announcing his resignation. It's not looking like Spacey's coming out is going to be as successful. He better get on that apology tour, stat!*

*Seth McFarlane has been eerily prescient.

I am wondering if the controversy surrounding Bryan Singer will resurface with all the new sexual harassment news coming out? The last time around with him, the news seemed to drop the story.
