Kevin Spacey is facing investigation over two new allegations of sexual assault and one of assault, according to reports by the BBC today. London's Metropolitan Police, who have not formally confirmed their suspect's name, are looking into incidents said to have taken place in Westminster, Lambeth and Gloucester between 1996 and 2013.

Spacey, who was cut from Ridley Scott's All The Money In The World after accusations against him first broke in October 2017, is already being investigated by the Met in relation to three other sexual assault allegations. The new developments come just a day after actor Guy Pearce, who worked with him on L.A. Confidential, told Australian TV host Andrew Denton that working with Spacey had been difficult, describing him as "a handsy guy."

To date, the actor has not faced criminal charges.
