Kevin Spacey is facing a felony charge of sexual assault for allegedly assaulting a former Boston TV news anchor’s teenage son in 2016.
The Oscar-winning actor, 59, will be arraigned on a charge of indecent assault and battery on a person 14 or over at Nantucket District Court on Jan. 7.
The alleged victim is the son of former US news anchor Heather Unruh, who first made the allegation during a press conference in November 2017.
Unruh said the actor bought her son "drink after drink" at a restaurant in Massachusetts before allegedly sticking his hand down the 18-year-old's pants and grabbing his genitals.
a video was posted to Spacey's official Twitter account, his first social media post since he was initially engulfed in scandal in October last year.
In the clip, Spacey appears to be in the character of Frank Underwood from House Of Cards.
The video begins with Spacey in a kitchen before he starts speaking directly to the camera.
He said: "I know what you want, and sure, they may have tried to separate us but what we have is too strong, is too powerful. I mean, after all, we shared everything, you and I.
"I told you my deepest, darkest secrets. I showed you exactly what people are capable of. I shocked you with my honesty, but mostly I challenged you and made you think.
"And you trusted me, even though you knew you shouldn't. So we're not done, no matter what anyone says. And besides, I know what you want - you want me back.
"Of course, some believed everything and have just been waiting with bated breath to hear me confess it all, they're just dying to have me declare that everything said is true and that I got what I deserved. Wouldn't that be easy, if it was all so simple."
He concluded: "Now that I think of it, you never actually saw me die, did you? Conclusions can be so deceiving. Missed me?"
It is not known whether Netflix is involved with the video and the streaming giant has been contacted for comment.
Spacey is due to appear at Nantucket District Court on January 7, facing charges of indecent assault and battery.
