Actor Kevin Spacey releases strange video amid felony sex assault charge

NANTUCKET, Massachusetts -- Actor Kevin Spacey broke his silence in a strange video Monday.

The video appeared on Spacey's YouTube and social media accounts, coinciding with news that he faces a felony charge from a sex assault claim in 2016.

The video, titled "Let Me Be Frank," appears to bring his "House of Cards" character Frank Underwood, back to life. The character was killed off in the latest season.

Spacey was fired after numerous allegations of sex assault and misconduct came to light.

Monday's video was Spacey's first social media post in over a year, and was posted minutes after news broke about his felony charge.

Spacey faces a felony charge after being accused of sexually assaulting a teen at a Nantucket bar in July 2016.

Spacey's arraignment is set for Jan 7.

Spacey's camp has not commented on the charge.

Netflix has no comment on Spacey's video.
