Kevin Spacey is easing back into acting again — but his first job ain’t even here in the States … dude’s heading all the way over to Italy to get back to work.
The disgraced actor — who has faced a mountain of sexual assault allegations since 2017, and essentially been exiled from mainstream Hollywood — booked his first acting role since the accusations came to light … this according to ABC News, who confirmed it.
Spacey is set to star in an Italian film called “L’uomo Che Disegno Dio,” which will be directed by famed Italian actor-turned-director Franco Nero … the guy who played the OG Django waaaay back in the ’60s. The title translates to “The Man Who Drew God.”
The synopsis says it’s about a blind artist who has the God-given ability to draw portraits of people by just listening to their voice … who then skyrockets to fame and becomes a TV star. It’s unclear what role Spacey will play, but he’ll be opposite Nero’s wife, Vanessa Redgrave.
Of Spacey’s casting, Nero tells ABC … “I’m very happy Kevin agreed to participate in my film.” He adds, “I consider him a great actor and I can’t wait to start the movie.”
KS hasn’t been on camera — besides his own weird home movies, that is — since he parted ways with Netflix’s “House of Cards” in late 2017 … which revamped the entire final season, killing his character off from the outset and pushing forward with just Robin Wright.
He’s been sued over the alleged sexual assaults — but on the criminal end … Spacey dodged charges from coast to coast, with a case against him Massachusetts being dismissed in 2019, and the L.A. County District Attorney’s refusing to prosecute since the alleged victim died.
