"I think it's very sad what happened to him". "Kevin is such a talented actor, terrifically gifted". Speaking to Vanity Fair on the red carpet of his latest film, "The Man Who Invented Christmas", Plummer said he feels "awfully sad" for Spacey given the numerous claims, which range from Spacey making sexual advances on minors to the actor having a sexual relationship with a 14 year old.
Christopher Plummer said the allegations of misconduct against Kevin Spacey "is very sad". "It's so sad, it's such a shame, and that's all I can say". Though co-stars Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg are on-board to participate in the reshoots, it's possible that Plummer will film many of his scenes against a green screen, being inserted digitally into existing footage-a technical challenge that comes with significant risk and huge cost.
With Spacey facing numerous allegations of sexual misconduct, the 87-year-old Oscar victor will step into the role of billionaire oil tycoon J. Paul Getty, re-shooting scenes with the plan to keep the film's current release date of December 22. "The whole circumstance is sad", Plummer said. Although the Motion Picture Association of America will need to watch the film again after the replacement is complete, and it typically takes 28 days for their review process, they will expedite the review to accommodate the studio.
"It isn't replacing. In a amusing way it's starting all over again because it's going to be different, naturally". I admire Ridley Scott and I'm thrilled to be making a movie for him.
He went on to talk about how excited he was for the opportunity to work with Scott on the film, which he was in contention for "ages ago". I've got a role. So I was familiar with it, and then Ridley came to me and I agreed. And then Ridley came to me, and I jumped at it, because I loved the script ... The script was wonderful. Eight male "House of Cards" employees have accused Spacey of harassment or groping, while just last week a Boston news anchor said Spacey groped her teenage son. I am very saddened by what happened to Kevin.
