Actor Kevin Spacey has been charged with four counts of sexual assault against three men, the Crown Prosecution Service has confirmed.
The 62-year-old has also been charged with causing a person to engage in penetrative sexual activity without consent.
The alleged incidents took place in London between March 2005 and August 2008, and in Gloucestershire in April 2013.
The charges follow a review of evidence gathered by the Metropolitan Police during its previous investigation into the star.
Rosemary Ainslie, head of the CPS Special Crime Division, said: “The CPS has authorised criminal charges against Kevin Spacey, 62, for four counts of sexual assault against three men.
“He has also been charged with causing a person to engage in penetrative sexual activity without consent. The charges follow a review of the evidence gathered by the Metropolitan Police in its investigation.
“The Crown Prosecution Service reminds all concerned that criminal proceedings against Mr Spacey are active and that he has the right to a fair trial.”
Allegations of sexual assault were first made against Spacey back in 2017, when several men working with him at London's Old Vic theatre between 1995 and 2013 claimed his alleged misconduct.
One former Star Trek actor accused the actor of sexually assaulting him when he was just 14-years-old.
Spacey was then charged with indecent assault on a teenager in the US in 2018 before the charge was dropped.
In one case, a massage therapist died after raising sexual assault allegations against the American Beauty star.
The charge had to be dropped along with a lawsuit relating to the same case.
Only last year an anonymous man filed a lawsuit against the Hollywood actor for alleged sexual abuse in the 1980s when the alleged victim was 14.
A judge ruled the man would have to reveal his identity to proceed with the case.
Spacey has continuously claimed his innocence of all accusations levelled against him.
Last December, it emerged that the actor had performed his first film role since the shocking allegations.
L'uomo Che Disegno Dio, or The Man Who Drew God, which was first released in Italy on 5 October 2021, tells the story of an artist charged with sexual abuse.
Spacey played the small part of a police detective who investigates the charges.
Director Franco Nero told ABC News: "I'm very happy Kevin agreed to participate in my film.
"I consider him a great actor and I can't wait to start the movie."
Spacey failed to comment, according to ABC.
