Spacey argued he should be excused from appearing next week because his presence would "amplify the negative publicity already generated in connection with this case".
The 59-year-old Oscar-winning actor had argued he should be excused from attending his January 7 arraignment at the Nantucket District Court because his presence would "amplify the negative publicity already generated in connection with this case".
Former "House of Cards" star Kevin Spacey must appear in a MA court on accusations that he groped a young man in 2016, a judge ruled on Monday.
A MA judge has denied Kevin Spacey's request to skip his appearance in court on accusations that he groped a young man.
Spacey faces one count of indecent assault and battery after a then 18-year-old claimed he got him drunk at the Club Car Restaurant, in Nantucket, before assaulting him.
He could be seen telling the camera: 'You trusted me even though you knew you shouldn't.
Spacey's latest stunt comes less than a week after he released a weird YouTube video - his first social-media interaction in more than a year - in character in his former "House of Cards" role, Frank Underwood. You wouldn't rush to judgment without facts, would you?
"Some believed everything and have just been waiting with bated breath to hear me confess it all", Spacey said in the video.
Star Trek actor Anthony Rapp came forward past year with allegations the Netflix star made unwanted sexual advances against him as a teenager. Aside from being in bad taste, the hat has a similarly unusual vibe as the video he posted on Christmas eve, where he wears a Christmas-themed apron and delivers a monologue in-character as Frank Underwood of House Of Cards, saying things like "Only you and I both know it's never that simple, not in politics and not in life".
