Kevin Spacey has released another cryptic Christmas video in which he urges people to “do the unexpected” and “kill them with kindness”.
The 60-year-old actor, who has faced multiple accusations of sexual misconduct over the last two years, posted a minute-long video to his YouTube channel on Christmas Eve.
Appearing to reprise his role as House Of Cards character Frank Underwood, Spacey says in the video titled “KTWK”: “You didn’t really think I was going to 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.”
Wearing a festive jumper and tending to a fire, Spacey continues in his character’s South Carolina accent: “As we walk into 2020, I want to cast my vote for more good in this world.
“Oh 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.”
It is the second year in a row that Spacey has appeared in a Christmas Eve video as his Underwood character.
Last year, he claimed “soon enough you will know the full truth” in the midst of sexual assault allegations.
The two-time Oscar-winner was a major Hollywood star before he was accused of inappropriate behaviour in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal in October 2017.
Earlier this year prosecutors in the US dropped a case accusing the actor of groping a teenager at a bar in 2016, which he denied.
Spacey was artistic director at London’s The Old Vic theatre between 2004 and 2015.
The theatre later found 20 people claimed they had been subjected to inappropriate behaviour from the actor.
Spacey was sacked from Netflix show House Of Cards – with his character killed off – and Sir Ridley Scott erased him from his completed film All The Money In The World, recasting Christopher Plummer in the role with re-shoots costing millions.
