Kevin Spacey reprises House of Cards character for new Christmas video message

Kevin Spacey has filmed another Christmas video as his House of Cards character Frank Underwood.

The disgraced actor was fired from the presidential role after news of alleged sexual misconduct and harassment hit the headlines in 2017, but he reprised the character to deliver a Christmas message while preparing for a party last year (18) - and now he's at it again.

In his new short, which dropped online on Tuesday (24Dec19), Spacey appears stoking a fire before turning to the camera and stating: "You didn’t really think I was gonna miss the opportunity to wish you a Merry Christmas did you?

"It’s been a pretty good year, and I’m grateful to have my health back. In light of that, I’ve made some changes in my life and I’d like to invite you to join me.

"As we walk into 2020, I want to cast my vote for more good in this world. Ah yes, I know what you’re thinking. Can he be serious? I’m dead serious. And it’s not that hard. Trust me. The next time someone does something you don’t like, you can go on the attack. But you can also hold your fire, and do the unexpected. You can... kill them with kindness."

Back in October (19), Los Angeles authorities declined to pursue sexual assault charges against Spacey following the death of his alleged victim. The Usual Suspects star found himself under criminal investigation in 2018 after an unidentified male massage therapist filed suit, accusing him of misconduct during an incident at a private residence in Malibu, California in 2016.

Spacey denied the claims, but police officials launched an investigation. The John Doe recently passed away before any charges could be filed, and as a result, representatives at the L.A. County District Attorney's Office rejected the case.

The news emerged three months after sexual misconduct charges against the actor were dropped by a Massachusetts prosecutor after his accuser declined to testify at a pre-trial hearing. Spacey still faces six allegations of sexual assault in the U.K., relating to alleged incidents between 1996 and 2013.
