  • Spinoffs: Netflix is said to be considering one of at least three ideas for House of Cards spinoffs following Monday's announcement that the show's sixth season will be its last. Variety reports one would center on Frank Underwood's right-hand man Doug Stamper, played by Michael Kelly, with former House of Cards executive producer Eric Roth acting as writer. Deadline has confirmed the report.
  • 2001 decision: Before Rapp gave his account to BuzzFeed, he gave it to the Advocate back in 2001. The publication ran it, but without identifying Spacey. Bruce Steele, a former editor, explains in the Citizen-Times that it was because the Advocate had a strict no-outing policy. "I will long ponder what we didn't do in 2001," he writes, calling the current atmosphere set off by the Harvey Weinstein scandal a time of "moral reckoning" for the media.
  • Seeking complaints: Spacey served as artistic director for 11 years at London's Old Vic theater, which says in a statement it is "dismayed" about the allegations, per CNN. What's more, it is asking anyone connected to Old Vic who might have a complaint to contact the theater through a confidential email it provides.
