It follows allegations being made against Kevin Spacey by Star Trek star Anthony Rapp, who claims the actor made sexual advances towards him when he was aged 14.

Spacey, a two-time Oscar victor, is in hot water following a Buzzfeed report that three decades ago, he made sexual advances on Rapp, a native of Joliet.

Spacey also came out as "a gay man" in his statement yesterday.

The streaming video company and Media Rights Capital, House of Cards production company, issued a statement saying they were "deeply troubled" by the allegations.

I think a lot of people who have paid attention to "House of Cards" know that critically, at least, it's been in decline. So should Netflix choose to downplay Spacey's role, Wright could potentially take over as the show's lead.

Quinto also lent his support to Rapp and expressed his hope for the actor's voice to be the one heard after Spacey's statement. Spacey's role as the murderous SC congressman-turned president became a defining one, especially in relation to political turmoil taking place in real life in Washington, D.C. What's going to happen to those films and how do they get released without the conversation being entirely about Kevin Spacey and these allegations of sexual misconduct?

Rapp said he had found it hard to watch Spacey's rise to fame, and was increasingly incredulous that anyone would do something like that to a 14-year-old boy.

Comic actress Rosie O'Donnell opened up about Spacey tweeting: "u don't remember the incident - 30 years ago? - f*** u kevin - like Harvey we all knew about u - I hope more men come forward". I've escaped from Kevin Spacey's basement!

Hours later, in a statement responding to the allegations, the Oscar-winner apologized for the behavior and came out as gay.

During the time I worked with Kevin Spacey on "House of Cards" I neither witnessed nor was aware of any inappropriate behavior on set or off.

"This isn't a coming out story about Spacey, but a story of survivorship by Anthony Rapp and those who speak out about unwanted sexual advances".

LGBTQ leaders are blasting Spacey for combining his apology with the revelation that he's gay, thus linking sexual orientation with sexual harassment.
