Kevin Spacey has broken his silence online with a bizarre House of Cards themed video, hours after it was revealed he will face charges for assault.
Spacey, real name Kevin Fowler, is due to be arraigned on a charge of indecent assault and battery at Nantucket District Court on Jan 7, the Boston Globe reports.

He's been accused of assaulting the 18-year-old son of former Boston WCVB-TV news anchor Heather Unruh at a bar in July 2016.
Allegations of sexual assault against the actor first surfaced in October 2017 when actor Anthony Rapp said Spacey assaulted him when he was 14.
Spacey responded to the accusations in a tweet on October 29, where he apologised to Rapp and came out as gay.
Since then 15 others came forward with allegations of abuse, and Spacey announced he would be seeking "evaluation and treatment" for his behaviour.

Spacey's social media has lain dormant since his October 29, 2017 apology, but on Christmas Day (NZ time) it suddenly sprung to life with a video where the actor addresses the audience as his House of Cards character Frank Underwood.
"We're not done, no matter what anyone says. And besides, I know what you want. You want me back," Spacey said in the video.
It seems Spacey is referring to his House of Cards character Frank Underwood, who was killed off in the final season of the Netflix series.
But several parts of the monologue appear to reference the actor's real life troubles as well.
"Some believed everything and have been just waiting with baited breath to hear me confess it all," he said.
"They're just dying to have me declare that everything said is true and that I got what I deserved. Only you and I both know it's never that simple, not in politics and not in life.
"All this presumption made for such an unsatisfying ending, and to think it could have been such a memorable send-off."
Netflix refused to comment on the video.
