Spacey has largely been out of the public eye since he was accused by multiple men of sexual assault and misconduct, starting in 2017. He denies the accusations against him.
Spacey posted a video of himself in front of a fire, wishing everyone a Merry Christmas. “It’s been a pretty good year,” he starts, “…And in light of that, I’d like to invite you to join me.” Spacey as Underwood then explains he wants to cast his vote for “more good in this world,” suggesting that when someone does something “you don’t like,” you should “hold your fire.”
“You can do the unexpected. You can kill them with kindness,” Spacey says as discordant music of the sort that was popular in horror and suspense films at the turn of the century plays. The camera then zooms in as he pokes the fire.
