Bryan Cranston admires Kevin Spacey’s work — but knows the Oscar winner’s career is now over.
Cranston, 61, told BBC Newsbeat this week that Spacey is done for after several men have accused the “House of Cards” star of sexual misconduct spanning decades.
“He’s a phenomenal actor, but he’s not a very good person,” the “Breaking Bad” star told Newsbeat. “His career now I think is over.”
Cranston said he never witnessed Spacey or anyone else in Hollywood behave inappropriately, though he was clear the behavior wasn’t surprising in the industry.
Actor Bryan Cranston says Kevin Spacey’s career is over now after several men accused the “House of Cards” star of sexual misconduct.
“You know it has gone on,” he said.
“There’s a disorder among all those people who use their power, their place or their status in any industry to overpower someone and force someone to do something that they don’t want to do.”
Spacey’s career has been spiraling into nothing since Anthony Rapp first accused him of attempting to “seduce” him when he was just 14 years old. Since Rapp’s claims, numerous other men have accused Spacey of making unwanted sexual advances toward them.
Hollywood stars accused of sexual harassment and assault
In recent weeks, Netflix has cut ties with Spacey, including removing him from current “House of Cards” promos and removing him from any further production of the hit series.
Both his former publicist and agent have parted ways with the actor amid the accusations.
An International Emmy Award scheduled to be presented to Spacey was also revoked in the wake of the scandal.
This image released by Netflix shows Kevin Spacey in a scene from “House Of Cards.”
On Wednesday, Sony announced it would edit Spacey out of its upcoming film “All the Money in the World” and replace him with actor Christopher Plummer.
The “American Beauty” star has entered a facility to “seek evaluation and treatment.”
After Rapp’s accusations surfaced, Spacey said in a statement that he did not recall the incident.
“If I did behave then as he describes, I owe him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior, and I am sorry for the feelings he describes having carried with him all these years,” he said in the statement.
He also revealed he was gay in the statement, which prompted backlash from the LGBTQ community and GLAAD.
