    The sexual harassment scandal involving Hollywood star Kevin Spacey appears to be growing larger as another young actor accuses the celebrity of molestation.

    Harry Dreyfuss, son of the popular American actor Richard Dreyfuss, has announced that Kevin Spacey groped him in 2008.

    According to Harry Dreyfuss, the molestation occurred when he and his father were visiting Spacey to rehearse the lines for a play called Complicit.

    While Spacey and Harry were sitting next to each other on a couch during the rehearsal, the former allegedly placed his hand on the young man’s thigh. As Harry made several attempts to move to the other side of the couch Spacey kept following him and repeating the gesture and then eventually started edging his hand toward the young man’s crotch.

    As Dreyfuss explained in his Buzzfeed column, his father didn’t see anything, so he decided to keep quiet about this affair, instead spending “the next nine years telling people the story at parties for laughs.”

    "Telling the story as a joke ensured that this was a story I could own. If I could laugh at it, then surely I was not a victim. As a young storyteller from a family dedicated to seeing the funny side of the absurd, this was my way of defanging the whole thing," he wrote.

    Earlier Kevin Spacey apologized to actor Anthony Rapp following the accusations of sexual misconduct toward him more than 30 years ago.

    Also, the streaming network Netflix has decided to fire Kevin Spacey from the popular drama "House of Cards" and not to release the film "Gore" starring the Oscar-winning actor.
