Kevin Spacey Did A Literal Song And Dance Routine During His Deposition

April 26, 2021 / Posted by:

If Kevin Spacey’s journey from Oscar-winning thespian to pervy Hollywood pariah has taught us anything, it’s that this dude is an out-of-touch egomaniac. Wait, a celebrity? Out of touch? I never! See: last year’s speech comparing his situation to people losing their jobs due to coronavirus, his bizarre in-character as Frank Underwood Christmas videos, the museum poem, etc…

So are any of us surprised that Kevin brought his anything-for-attention theatrics to court? According to a new Hollywood Reporter piece detailing Kevin’s legal troubles, last February Kevin “sprung up from his seat” during his deposition and performed a song-and-dance number. The real tragedy? There is no video. 

Kevin’s little performance happened during his legal battle with his formal employer, Media Rights Capital. They produced House of Cards, and are seeking tens of millions of dollars in damages they suffered after the allegations against Kevin came out. Kevin countersued saying they owe him money, via Hollywood Reporter:

After more than a year of contentious private negotiations, the Spacey case was submitted to an arbitrator in February 2020, right before the coronavirus lockdown began, with protective orders in place so that there would be no reporting on the still raging battle. But like everything in the new bizarre world of Spacey, this legal proceeding turned surreal quickly. At one point during his deposition, Spacey sprung up from his seat and performed a song-and-dance number in the conference room.

I have so many questions. What did he sing? How did he dance? I’m gonna guess it was tap, a skill he smugly showed off on Inside the Actor’s Studio:

The MRC suit isn’t Kevin’s only current legal battle. Even though three (three!) of Kevin’s sexual misconduct accusers have died (illness, suicide, hit by car) in the past couple of years, he’s still being sued for sexual assault by one of his ex-acting students from the ’80s. The anonymous accuser would have been 14 at the time. Anthony Rapp is also a plaintiff in that suit. He was also 14 when Kevin allegedly assaulted him.

There are also at least six sexual assault accusations out of London, where Kevin spent many years running the Old Vic theatre. The Brits are still deciding whether to press criminal charges against him, based on findings made by Scotland Yard’s Child Abuse and Sexual Offences Command. Methinks Kev better start shining his dancing shoes and practicing his pirouettes. It’s gonna take some real fancy footwork to get outta this one!
