Details In Contract May Protect Kevin Spacey From Being Fired Over Allegations

By Zachary Brenner

Recently Netflix stopped production on House of Cards after actor Anthony Rapp accused Kevin Spacey of sexually harassing him when he was just fourteen-years-old. However, according to a report from The Blast, it's possible that Spacey's contract makes stopping production quite complicated. 

Anonymous sources told The Blast that Spacey does not have a morality clause in his contract, suggesting that neither Netflix nor the production studio behind House of Cards, Media Rights Capital, can fire him based upon Rapp's and others' accusations. According to this source, the  contract says Spacey can only be terminated if becomes “unavailable” or “incapacitated”and is unable to fulfill to meet the production requirements. Allegedly, it doesn't mention anything about his personal actions.

While Spacey is currently checked into a treatment facility in Arizona, he is reportedly just there as a volunteer and would be able to return to set when requested.
