Kevin Spacey found not guilty of nine charges
Kevin Spacey has been cleared of all seven sexual assault charges and two other sexual offenses by a London jury.
Previously known for hit films like Se7en, The Usual Suspects and American Beauty, his career has hit a standstill while he dealt with his legal troubles.
The actor was dropped from his last major project, Netflix’s House of Cards, after multiple allegations of sexual misconduct.
However, an industry expert has exclusively told Daily Express US that Spacey could start making a comeback now the trial is behind him.
Mitchell Jackson, BCC Communications, LLC, told us: “Being found innocent will help Kevin Spacey.

“Eventually when a studio wants to hire him, they can point to him being found innocent.”
Spacey’s last big studio movies were Baby Driver and Billionaire Boys Club, released shortly before and just after the allegations were made public, respectively.
Last year, he made his first attempt at a comeback by appearing in the Italian film The Man Who Drew God, and will star in the upcoming thriller film Peter Five Eight.
Although it’s unlikely he’ll be cast in a major studio release any time soon, Jackson argues Hollywood execs could eventually start seeing him as a box office draw again.

“Right now, the public has turned against cancel culture and Me Too, but Hollywood is slower than the rest of America,” he said.
“They’re late to the cultural trends, and they’ll realize they have nothing to fear in five years. Because of this, Hollywood will still be reluctant to hire him.
“However, if he has a star turn in several indie movies, he could eventually find himself in a Hollywood role again.”
If major film roles don’t start coming his way, Spacey could try a different pathway to newfound success.
“Before Hollywood endorses him, it’s possible a fashion brand would,” Jackson said.
“He doesn’t have Johnny Depp’s cool factor, but he’s still a star.
“It’s possible a lower-tier luxury brand would work for him, find success, and help pave the way for a comeback.”
