Unless you live in a cave that doesn’t have WiFi you know most of Hollywood’s biggest and brightest were in attendance for the Golden Globes last night. But not Kevin Spacey. Nah, Hollywood hates him (for now) and he’s got too many legal issues to deal with. And in an attempt to not swap out that lifestyle for one with daily meals of chi chis and trying not to get shanked in the shower, Kevin showed up in court today for his sexual harassment hearing. However, he didn’t say much.
People says Kevin appeared before a judge in Nantucket District Court in Massachusetts this morning but didn’t enter a plea so an automatic plea of “not guilty” was entered for him. You’ll recall that Kevin and his lawyers tried their best to physically keep him out of court to avoid any negative media attention but the judge quickly swatted that idea down and told Kevin to get his ass to the courthouse for a mandatory appearance. And honestly if he didn’t want bad press then perhaps he should have allegedly kept his grabby hands to himself in the first place. Just a thought, Spacey.
The unnamed victim claims that in 2016 when he was 18, Kevin gave him tons of booze and groped him repeatedly. The alleged groping was reportedly recorded. One of the stipulations after today’s hearing, requested by Cape and Islands Assistant District Attorney Michael Giardino, is that Kevin needs to keep far, far away from the accuser and his family. Kevin’s next hearing is on March 4, but he doesn’t have to be there.
Here’s Kevin trying his hardest to spit out a smug, “Do you know who I am?!”, at the judge during today’s hearing.
Upon leaving the courthouse Kevin remained silent. However, during a probate hearing back in December, Kevin’s attorney called SHENANIGANS on the accuser’s story, pointing out inconsistencies and also acting it out for the people in the room. I really don’t even want to know what that performance looked like, especially since Kevin recently dusted off his acting chops for that very strange monologue he posted to social media as his House of Lies character Frank Underwood. If all of this stress from the case is causing him to revisit characters from his career I suggest he acts as the dude from The Usual Suspects during the trial. That way the jury will take one look at him, realize he’s lying and just locks him up to avoid spending the taxpayers’ money.
