Kevin Spacey Documentary Lands at Max, ID for U.S. Release

The Channel 4 doc, titled 'Spacey Unmasked,' will feature interviews with several men about their experiences with the actor.

Max and ID have acquired U.S. rights to a Channel 4 documentary about Kevin Spacey.

The two-part doc, titled Spacey Unmasked, is billed as a “forensic look” at Spacey’s career and the allegations of inappropriate sexual conduct against him. Spacey was acquitted in July 2023 of nine charges in a U.K. criminal case against him.

The documentary will also include interviews with “multiple men unconnected to that case about their experiences with Kevin Spacey, almost all of whom have never spoken before,” along with other previously unseen archival footage and interviews with the actor.

Spacey, a two-time Oscar winner, faced nine criminal charges from four different men in his U.K. trial, ranging from unwanted touching to, according to testimony from one man, performing oral sex on the man while he was asleep. The charges stemmed from alleged acts that occurred from 2001 to 2013; Spacey was artistic director of London’s Old Vic Theatre from 2004-15.

Spacey Unmasked is set to air on Channel 4 in the U.K. on May 6 and 7. Premiere dates for the U.S. and other territories haven’t been announced yet. All3Media International is handling international sales of the documentary and struck a deal with Warner Bros. Discovery for rights to the United States (where it will stream on Max and air on ID’s cable channel) and several other countries.

Katherine Haywood directed and produced Spacey Unmasked. Dorothy Byrne and Mike Lerner are executive producers. Roast Beef Productions (Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer) produces in association with All3 Media International.

New allegations will be featured in docu-series.

“I felt like I was staring at a soulless monster,” Daniel, an actor, says of his alleged sexual assault by Kevin Spacey in a new Channel 4 documentary promising a “forensic look” at the Oscar winner’s rise to stardom and his alleged sexual misconduct.

Spacey Unmasked features 10 men, Daniel among them, to tell their stories of alleged abuse at the hands of Spacey. None of them were involved in the London trial that saw the actor acquitted of nine charges in July 2023, and all but one have never spoken out before. The charges stemmed from alleged acts that occurred from 2001 to 2013; Spacey was artistic director of London’s Old Vic Theatre from 2004 until 2015.

[quote]Now, Spacey Unmasked — a two-part documentary from British broadcaster Channel 4 — is delving into his allegedly inappropriate and exploitative behavior, covering accusations that span five decades. The documentary is a crucial entry into the conversation around male victims of sexual misconduct — and highlights how men haven’t yet developed a vocabulary to describe or process these situations. “Men are not used to discussing this, talking about this, naming it, or giving it language,” says executive producer Mike Lerner. “One of our hopes is that after this series goes out, there will be more people realizing that they should and can speak out about what’s happened to them.”

Men have never used the terms dirty old man, predatory homosexual, groper, sex pest, rapist, bully, casting couch etc.

The sentence might usefully have included the word 'publicly', also, 'about famous double Oscar-winning actors.'

However, some men publicly discussed the predatory behaviour of (eventually jailed) Jonathan King, whose MO seemed not unlike Spacey's. Also, many men have in recent years painfully spoken out about how abuse at their schools ruined lives, and was ignored or covered up for decades. Public discussion about such predation is more open now.

Popbitch covered this story - he wasn’t cruising…..

In 2004, Kevin Spacey's ludicrous tale of tripping over his dog in the park in the middle of the night was given an airing live on the BBC's Today. Newspapers and TV all sniggered when covering it but, aside from a few inverted commas in their copy, his version of events (which was such obvious horseshit) went unchallenged. Long-time Popbitch readers will remember that we gave you the real story: Spacey picked up a star- struck waiter, took him for drinks (in the bar below our office, no less) pushed his luck a little too far and got a punch in the chops for his troubles. Yet no-one picked it up, affording Spacey another 13 years of blind eyes and turned heads.

[quote]Spacey's ludicrous tale of tripping over his dog in the park

Long ago now, but I thought there were additional details involving a young man in the park at night, and a mobile phone. The police were somehow involved, meaning Spacey's account needed to be at least somewhat coherent.

I do recall the end of a TV South Bank Show about Spacey at The Old Vic. The end credits rolled over a long tracking shot on a walkway in a South London park at night, as though the camera was cruising. I doubt many viewers were mystified by this reference.

I still wish Rupert Graves would come forward and tell his story of being groped by Spacey in his dressling room and Spacey stalking him. Does sitting in his car outside Graves’ home count as stalking? I think it does. Graves refused to do the Broadway transfer of The Iceman Cometh because of Spacey. Spacey was obsessed with him, most likely because of the role he’d played in the film Maurice. And Graves is married with children. To paraphrase someone quoting Spacey on last night’s broadcast “I love flipping straight guys.”

Dianne Dreyer was a highly respected script supervisor on major films. It seemed toward the end of Part 1 that she might actually be interviewed on camera but nope.

The main ick factor bit in tonight’s Part 2 was from a young British actor who greeted Spacey at the Savoy for the opening night party of Sweet Bird of Youth and Spacey responded by reaching down into the guy’s boxers to stick his finger in his crack.

I wonder if Spacey woukd oblige Travolta from time to time. Travolta apparently loves that sort of anal attention and has supposedly begged licensed masseurs from reputable agencies in LA to “go that extra mike.”

A lot of these men admit to giving him head, kissing him, being willing to do whatever he wanted to get something and we’re supposed to feel sorry for them? If they got what they wanted, by their logic, it was okay. Spacey has an issue keeping his hands to himself but these men are hardly victims. The one from the set of “House of Cards” I do feel sorry for. The others are pretty ridiculous. This is the most publicity they’ve gotten in their entire failed lives. At any rate, people love gossip and love to be outraged over sex. What Spacey did was tame compared to what gay men do every day in real life. Not one of us would fall to pieces if someone started beating off next to us. Hell, it happens every day on the subway. My main issue with this is people making money off selling their stories. Go to the police and for Christ’s sake stop crying.

Spacey often cries during his long interview with Dan Wootton.

If Spacey's entire long harassing career was 'just' clumsy horny over-eagerness, fit only to be laughed off or forgotten, the above wouldn't have occurred. And if as the actor says to Wootton that he is now learning more about himself, then maybe it was right for the men he groped to break silence, for many good reasons.

by Anonymousreply 83May 9, 2024 11:46 AM

I think r80 is giving some needed perspective here. I've been grabbed and groped (without invitation and sometimes very surprisingly) by men and women over the years. I've also been aggressively pursued in ways that I didn't encourage or want a few times. The only time it cost me anything emotionally was when it was connected to employment or advancement. In those instances it did stress me out considerably, but honestly only because I had to weigh the option of giving in to get ahead (pun intended) Something I only did once when I was attracted to the guy and would have hooked up with him anyway and later I did regret it, but I got over it. I've met a few very hot straight guys who were unaware of the impact they had on gay men, principally because they can't imagine being strongly attracted to another man, even if they've dabbled or been approached in the past. But most really hot guys, like hot girls, KNOW the fleeting power of the impact of their appearance and use it to varying degrees of awareness. I think it is different for women and smaller men who might legitimately be afraid of being physically overpowered. I never had that fear. I never feared for my safety. Just my job and I always felt like I could get another job. Another luxury many don't have, so I concede that when harassment is tied with employment in some way the reality is many people are legitimate victims.

HAVING SAID THAT, if you are a screenwriter who is straight and are willing to suck a movie stars dick for a few seconds in the hope of getting a deal, you are not a victim. You may be ashamed and embarrassed, but you are not a victim. If your employer sticks his hands down your pants, you are a being preyed upon, no question but if its an implied quid pro quo that is not delivered on, I am not considering you the victim of anything other than bad judgement and bad deal making. Some of these guys were victimized by Spacey for sure, and countless others who successfully executed a quid pro quo with Spacey are enjoying the fruits of that endeavour and are remaining anonymous.

I want to point out the reason Spacey felt so free to do this is true universally in almost every business: Because it works. In past years it could be dismissed with little effort if you were rich and powerful and more people give in than resist, so it's part of that culture. Some of the people crying victim are just failed negotiators and others were legitimately victimized and exploited.

It is ok to notice and point out the difference because its insulting to those who were truly predated upon to be grouped in wiith bad dealmakers.

I mentioned him in contrast with some of the other men who, I believe, were genuinely victimized by Spacey. I watched the documentary before commenting oin it.

I had no sympathy for the screenwriter who sucked Spacey’s dick expecting quid pro quo. HE was the one, in the end, who was pursuing Spacey. HE faxed Spacey an Oscar congrats with his phone number (didn’t they have email when ‘American Beauty’ came out?!!) and did this after Spacey had come on to him in the bar bathroom.

I also had NO sympathy for the high school drama classmate dude. Spacey wasn’t in a position of power at that time. He touched his dick while he was driving. Maybe Spacey thought he might be gay too? I wish I had been more forward with some of my high school classmates in retrospect.

If you are somewhat and have ever walked into a gay bar or nightclub, chances are VERY high that your dick was grabbed or butt was groped at some time or another. It’s not behavior that I think is appropriate, but it’s also not traumatizing. Spacey sounds like a homophobic creep, but unlike Harvey Weinstein, there are non criminal charges against him. He never raped anyone, but he certainly created a hostile work environment and his professional losses following the allegations/investigations are justified. I just don’t think we need a Max documentary full of “groping” stories. It’s patterned behavior and shouldn’t happen, but it does. There was also an “ick” factor with some of the straight men talking about “having their dicks touched” and “morals”. Spacey is a self hating creep, but he didn’t rape them, but their “victim trauma” on camera makes it seem like he did. The Saving Private Ryan dude - c’mon you know why you went up to his hotel room and I don’t think it’s MORE offensive that Spacey was jerking off while the Normandy attack was on screen. He’s a creep and a pervert. What do you expect?

And the brother… sad life with father, but is he closeted as well or does have a Diane in his life? I was surprised he never addressed his own sexuality issues, if there were any, in the doc.

^ You have no sympathy for the high school classmate who was groped against his will? Why? Because you're an asshole? Most of the victims are straight, just because you want to get groped by a man doesn't mean straight guys do

by Anonymousreply 103May 14, 2024 3:31 PM

It was neither an abuse of power nor rape when Kevin Spacey groped a drama class mate in high school. His other groping incidences, on set and at the Old Vic, were abuses of power. Makes sense r103?

Did you ever attempt to get frisky with someone in high school and they turned you down? It happens all the time. The documentary attempts to establish this as the start of Kevin’s patterned behavior, which I think is wholly unnecessary and undermines the voice of the groped victims.

Because Spacey was acquitted of criminal charges it's not unreasonable to assume he will achieve a comeback of sorts. I think this documentary is 'needed' to establish that this man should never be in a position of authority again, in the theater or anywhere else. The documentary is reminding people that he is a serial harasser, that's why it's 'needed'.

I think everyone knows about Kevin Spacey’s lack of professional conduct by now. I’m not a fan. He has always come across as a narcissistic smug asshole, but I’m also suspect of victims who associate “addiction issues”, “problems with relationships”, and “not making it in Hollywood” to sexual advances from Spacey. His behavior was wrong, but this documentary unnecessarily magnifies his prior indiscretions. He’s 64 and hasn’t worked in 7 years. He won’t comeback.

by Anonymousreply 106May 14, 2024 3:59 PM

R104, it's illegal to grope someone without their permission. Whether you consider it "an abuse of power" or not

I don't go around "getting frisky" with random straight guys or guys who've never shown any interest in me. If you do, good luck with that. Hope you don't get murdered

by Anonymousreply 107May 14, 2024 3:59 PM

Groping outside of a consensual sexual interaction is almost always unwelcome. In the workplace, it absolutely warrants disciplinary action.

I don’t think the dude from his high school drama class can call himself a victim here. The wannabe actors/screenwriters who went to Spacey’s hotel room… they knew they were walking into quicksand and should have learned from their lapse in judgement. If you want someone to read your screenplay, meet them in a bar. Don’t give them head and call yourself a victim when Spacey ignores your screenplay.

R109, absolutely wrong behavior, but these men knew what they were walking into by going to his hotel room or other private spaces with him. For both parties involved, it’s not appropriate to “conduct business” in someone’s hotel room or in a movie theater.

Going to someone's hotel room doesn't mean you deserve to be abused. And most of the abuse didn't happen in hotel rooms, anyway

(The few Harvey Weinstein defenders here, reactionary guys who want to lash out at metoo, always try to make the same argument. She went to his hotel room, so she deserved it! I guess even the worst guys have their defenders)

R112, I’m pretty sure if you accepted an invite to join Kevin Spacey in his hotel room you would know that a sexual advance could happen. I don’t buy that these men were surprised it happened. Spacey is a creep, but one thing leads to another.

by Anonymousreply 115May 14, 2024 8:21 PM

They were starstruck and didn't want to say no. He also told one of them that there would be a party in the hotel room and that other people would be there. He didn't know he'd be alone with Spacey. Other guys had made similar claims about Spacey - that he'd invite them to a "party" and then he'd be the only person there

It was sad when one of the ex-marines said that Spacey made fun of a gay couple at a bar. Of course that's the kind of awful thing Spacey would do

Some not especially relevant actors have called for Spacey to be allowed to return to work.

Not surprised about creepy Stephen Fry but Sharon Stone and Liam Neeson are disappointing. Would Neeson trust Spacey around his sons?

Stone, the most bankable female star of the 90s in films such as Basic Instinct, suggested in a statement that Spacey had been a victim of his own fame and success.

She told The Telegraph: “I can’t wait to see Kevin back at work. He is a genius. He is so elegant and fun, generous to a fault and knows more about our craft than most of us ever will.”

She said it was clear aspiring actors had “wanted and want to be around him”, adding: “It’s terrible that they are blaming him for not being able to come to terms with themselves for using him and negotiating with themselves because they didn’t get their secret agendas.”

Neeson, one of Britain’s biggest stars since starring in Schindler’s List 30 years ago, said: “I was deeply saddened to learn of these accusations against him. Kevin is a good man and a man of character. He’s sensitive, articulate and non-judgemental, with a terrific sense of humour. He is also one of our finest artists in the theatre and on camera. Personally speaking, our industry needs him and misses him greatly.”

F Murray Abraham, Oscar winner for his role as Salieri in Amadeus, said he counted Spacey as a friend, adding: “I vouch for him unequivocally. Who are these vultures who attack a man who has publicly accepted his responsibility for certain behaviour, unlike so many others?”

Abraham went on: “He is a fine man, I stand with him, and let he who is without sin cast the first stone.”

In a withering assessment of the Channel 4 documentary, Fry accepted that Spacey had been “both ‘clumsy’ and ‘inappropriate’ on many occasions” but that to “bracket him with the likes of Harvey Weinstein” and “to continue to harass and hound him, to devote a whole documentary to accusations that simply do not add up to crimes … how can that be considered proportionate and justified?”

Fry said Spacey’s reputation had already been “wrecked”, adding: “Surely it is wrong to continue to batter a reputation on the strength of assertion and rhetoric rather than evidence and proof?”

He added: “Unless I’m missing something I think he has paid the price.”

He didn’t commit any criminal offenses and hasn’t been in the spotlight for almost seven years. Why not give him a second chance? Some of y’all just want him to suffer in perpetuity because you sound like you have a boner with his suffering.

He’s a narcissistic, homophobic, aggressive, tone-deaf creep. If you hate him, don’t be friends with him. However, he’s talented and should continue to act. I feel the same about Woody Allen and Roman Polanski. We care far too much about the personal lives of celebrities. They’re not politicians. They’re employed to entertain us with masks on.

Spacey taking his dick out during a screening of Saving Private Ryan (specifically during the battle of Normandy scene) and asking the straight marine sitting next to him to help him rub one out was pretty funny.

by Anonymousreply 121May 15, 2024 6:36 PM

I couldn't even get through the first episode. That big, buff Marine talking about how Spacey took advantage of him? Oh, please. He could have done what other big, buff, straight Marines have done: punch Spacey in the mouth and never see him again.

But no! He didn't go that! Because the Marine had an ulterior motive, and he pouted when Spacey wouldn't help him.

The entire time I was listening to these guys whine and moan, I couldn't help but wonder why they were so fucking stupid. OK -- a young-ish/naive woman might fall for those lines. But god almighty, these are men! You would think they would know how men act! Stormy had the same thing happen; she had sex with Trump for three minutes or so, put her clothes on, and went on about her life for many years until she realized that her story was worth some money, and then she got it. Case closed (until now).

But this shit happens to men and it's a fucking catastrophe -- when you would think that, of all people, men should know how other men can be. Talk about naive!!

Two things are true.

Kevin Spacey has never been convicted of a crime.

Kevin Spacey has been accused by multiple people in multiple productions of unprofessional behaviour.

So film and theatre companies are welcome to hire Spacey but any sane producer will arrange for him to be chaperoned to avoid any similar complaints and will also have to consider whether Spacey’s involvement risks appealing to audiences.

The stuff about his brother being violently raped by their father for years was disturbing. Spacey’s behavior - forcing himself on straight men, taking his dick out, doing shit in semi public settings all seem to suggest he gets off on the shock and humiliation factor as well as the sexual aspect of it.

And how the men kept saying he had this empty cold expression when he was doing this pervert shit.

VERY disturbed guy.

I think that is true, r143 and I agree that it's a different experience. I will add, though, that straight identifying men who are in the entertainment business are most likely aware that when they go to an important industry person's home for a party and discover just the guy in his robe MUST be aware something is in the offing. I don't blame anyone for using whatever they've got to get ahead in the business, its fucking tough to get ANY traction, but the guys that kept meeting up with Spacey had to be at least willing to consider putting out for the right "price" Not defending Spacey, just stating what I think is obvious and it makes me crazy being asked to pretend that isn't the case
