Kevin Spacey faces new assault probe in US

The Los Angeles District Attorney is reviewing a sexual assault case against Kevin Spacey, the embattled actor accused of sexual misconduct by at least 15 young men and boys across the USA and England, the Hollywood Reporter confirmed on Wednesday. Rapp said when he was 14 in 1986, Spacey invited him to his apartment for a party and made aggressive sexual advances toward him.

"Star Trek: Discovery" actor Anthony Rapp was the first person to come out with allegations against Spacey in October 2017.

No further details about the investigation were provided.

The DA's office recently declined to prosecute writer-director James Toback on five allegations of sexual assault because those cases fell outside the statute of limitations.

District attorney's spokesman Greg Risling confirmed that he case was under consideration by prosecutors.

Prosecutors are reviewing a decades-old sex crimes case against disgraced actor Kevin Spacey.

Spacey won an Oscar for best actor in 1999 for "American Beauty" and for best-supporting actor in 1996 for "The Usual Suspects", along with a Golden Globe in 2015 for best actor in a TV series for "House of Cards". Accusations against him also triggered reshoots for the Ridley Scott film "All The Money In The World", which saw Spacey's performance as oil tycoon J. Paul Getty replaced by Christopher Plummer - who earned an Academy Award nomination for the role.
