Almost as soon as news broke on Monday, Christmas Eve, that disgraced Hollywood actor Kevin Spacey was charged with indecent assault and battery, Spacey posted a bizarre video on his Twitter account titled “Let Me Be Frank.” Spacey performed as House of Cards character Frank Underwood and, given the timing, appeared to address the accusations against him, giving the title of the video a clear double-entendre. If we presume that what Spacey had to say, true to the title, was “frank” (i.e. open and honest), this is the kind of thing that would make any criminal defense attorney cringe.

Associated Press Published 3:30 PM EST Dec 24, 2018 Boston – Kevin Spacey has posted a video online in character as his “House of Cards” role in which he says “I’m not going to pay the price for things I didn’t do.” The actor made the bizarre post Monday to YouTube and tweeted it shortly after a Massachusetts prosecutor announced he would face a charge in an alleged sexual assault in 2016. It is unclear if Spacey is referring to the charge he faces in the three-minute monologue delivered in the voice of Frank Underwood, the character killed off in the Netflix series after sexual misconduct allegations surfaced. Spacey is scheduled to be arraigned next month on a charge of indecent assault and battery on allegations he sexually assaulted the teenage son of a Boston television anchor in a Nantucket restaurant in July 2016.

Minutes after the Boston Globe reported disgraced Hollywood star Kevin Spacey is facing a felony sexual charge, the actor made his first public comments since allegations were made last year in a video referencing Netflix show House of Cards. In the bizarre clip, Spacey acted as his House of Cards character President Frank Underwood and spoke to the audience — breaking the fourth wall, as he often did on the show during scenes that featured the lengthy rants from the actor — and asking them to “Let me be Frank.” Netflix declined to comment on the matter, but Mediaite can confirm that the company had no involvement in the making of Spacey’s comeback video. In the clip, Spacey said the following while wearing a Christmas apron, preparing a holiday dinner, and speaking in the trademark accent he used while playing Frank: “I know what you want.
