To quote Irish writer, Darren Shan, “Destiny is a tower of cards - nudge one just an inch and everything stacked on top comes crashing down.” Kevin Spacey had the world in the palm of his hand, winning multiple prestigious awards, headlining box office hits, and walking red carpets everywhere. But when one brave victim of Spacey’s predatory behavior came forward, his house of cards came crashing down. Was it something in Spacey’s childhood that sparked his salacious behavior? All the stories that have come out seem to have a common theme, but do they all have merit? Will Spacey make a return to the big screen or will this be the last we see of the American Beauty star? We’ll dive into this and much more in this episode of AHC Podcast.
