Kevin Spacey has been spotted enjoying a stroll in Milan with a composer friend as he prepares to feature in a ‘comeback’ movie ‘L’uomo Che Disegno Dio – or ‘The Man Who Drew God’ fours years after he was accused of sexual assault.

The American film producer, 61, who came out as gay in 2017, was seen taking in the Piazza Duomo and browsing the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, where they bought a couple of books. 

Spacey and Clark then completed the local tradition of stepping on the bull’s testicles within the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. 

Spacey was seen chatting to some children before heading towards the Duomo, after speaking to the uniformed traffic police for a few minutes.

Spacey has recently filmed the Italian film ‘L’uomo Che Disegno Dio – or ‘The Man Who Drew God’ – his first film role since sexual assault allegations surfaced nearly four years ago. 

The movie, shot in Italy and directed by Franco Nero, has reportedly finished shooting and is currently in postproduction. In it, the House of Cards star plays a detective who investigates a man wrongly-accused of ebing a paedophile.

It comes after Spacey’s career collapsed following a string of sexual misconduct claims were made by underage men. 

The plot sees Nero himself play a blind artist, who is able to use people’s voices to draw their exact physical features. But as his fame and popularity grows, he wrongly becomes accused of sex abuse. 

Spacey had been one of Hollywood’s biggest stars but faced scandal after claims he sexually assaulted Star Trek actor Antony Rapp, who was 14 at the time.

It sparked accusations by other men about his behaviour but none have ever reached court and have been denied.

Rapp’s public comments about him prompted Spacey to come out as gay in 2017. He said he did not remember such an encounter with Rapp but apologised if the allegations were true.

Last year Spacey compared his fall from grace to the coronavirus pandemic, and complained about losing his job following the accusations.

Spacey described his ‘painful’ journey three years after he was accused of assault by a string of men and said he could relate to workers who had been laid off during the Covid-19 spread.

In comments for an interview for the Bits & Pretzels podcast, said: ‘I don’t think it will come as a surprise for anyone to say that my world completely changed in the fall of 2017.

‘My job, many of my relationships, my standing in my own industry were all gone in just a matter of hours.’

Not only did he get fired from Netflix hit House Of Cards, he was also removed from the completed movie All The Money In The World, which was reshot with actor Christopher Plummer in his role.

Spacey, who has not appeared in a professional movie or series since the accusations were made, said: ‘I don’t often like to tell people that I can relate to their situation because I think it undermines the experience that they may be having which is their own unique and very personal experience.’

Spacey added: ‘But in this instance I feel as though I can relate to what it feels like to have your world suddenly stop.

‘And so while we may have found ourselves in similar situations, albeit for very different reasons and circumstances, I still believe that some of the emotional struggles are very much the same.

‘And so I do have empathy for what it feels like to suddenly be told that you can’t go back to work or that you might lose your job and that it’s a situation that you have absolutely no control over.’ 

According to his website, Clark is currently music director at Baltimore Choral Arts. A British trained conductor, he has worked with some of the best ensembles in the world including the Rundfunk Chor Berlin, CBSO Chorus and London Symphony Chorus.
