She has a point. Are we going to go through old films and remove actors who were racists? We have the technology. Obviously Spacey isn't going to be doing much acting anymore, but I don't see the point of erasing the work he has already done.

If he chooses to never work again, I understand and accept it if he admits to conducting himself inappropriately professionally or personally by abusing his position of power over others.

But unless he’s convicted of a crime I don’t agree with erasing him from any work he’s completed.

Worse men (convicted killers) are forever immortalized on film, in music, and in other forms of art.

I hated him in his character in House of Cards, that's how good he is as an actor. I hope to see him in more projects.

Ugh, Anthony Rapp was talentless and forgotten and was looking for attention. Its a shame it had to come to this.

Should never have been cut. Its ludicrous. But that's the American left for you. Insane in the membrane.

Anthony Rapp was talentless and forgotten

"Was"? He's a main character in Star Trek Discovery, which is still a going concern.

Matt, Agreed!

I admire Mr. Spacey's acting accomplishments. If he wants it, he should get a hearing concerning the allegations against him. If he does not request an investigation and a hearing, it makes him look guilty. Perhaps he knows what the outcome of an investigation would reveal.

Much respect to her for speaking her mind andnot giving a damn about the nutty left - unlike so manyothers on the "entertainment" world who jump on whatever bandwagon is flavor of the month.

A great actor, no doubt about it.

The Usual Suspects, Seven, Swimming With Sharks, LA Confidential, American Beauty and of course, House of Cards. All essential Spacey films and shows.

But a decent human being? A trustworthy person?

That needs more investigating.

The customary current confusion of reality and expression (I would like to say 'fiction', but the film is based on real events).

Spacey is quite charismatic and attention-grabbing in perfromance. I have seen only one interview, and he came across the same - that is the basis upon which people need to consider what it would be like with old Kev with the door closed.

Come to think of it, there is a measure of bad taste there - now!

In contrast, Travolta (clean) in the title role of 'Gotti', who was far from clean, but no problem (despite movie crashing). In this case maybe it would only be Travolta wanting to erase 'Gotti' from his resume. Or that from now he can give up any dreams of headlining productions again.

Money, marketing decision and investment return are primary.
