British police investigating abuse allegations against actor Kevin Spacey have doubled their case load. Already looking into two complaints of sexual assault and one of assault in London between 2005 and 2008, Scotland Yard is probing three new complaints of sexual assault by the Oscar-winning actor, who was artistic director at London's Old Vic Theatre from 2004 to 2015, per the BBC and Guardian. Reported between February and April, two incidents are alleged to have occurred in London in 1996 and 2008, the third in Gloucester in 2013. The BBC puts the total number of accusations faced by the former House of Cards star at more than 30 men. (Guy Pearce might've made an accusation of his own.)
