Kevin Spacey and legal counsel seen leaving swanky Hollywood hotel where Netflix lawyer is staying

Kevin Spacey has made his way back to Hollywood.

The out-of-work actor, 59, was spotted on Wednesday night at the Sunset Tower Hotel, where he did his best to go unnoticed by covering much of his face with a hooded sweatshirt.

Video shows the actor hightailing it out if the hotel under the cover of darkness, with a man who looked similar to Spacey’s lawyer Jay Barron directing the car as it pulled into traffic.

Not joining Spacey however was his constant companion Evan Lowenstein, with the actor driving off into West Hollywood by himself on Wednesday under the cover of darkness.

The reason for Spacey’s visit is a bit of a mystery, but it does seem likely that the actor was spending part of his time dealing with one of the many legal cases he is facing these days.

Tim Caballero, a member of the Netflix legal team who specifically deals with the streaming service’s original content, was at the Sunset Tower at the same time as Spacey.  

Caballero, a lover of physical fitness, posted a video of himself lifting weights at the hotel to Instagram, using the Sunset Tower’s gym despite the fact that he lives in Los Angeles. 

The results of his lifting are on full display in his profile photo on the social media site, where he is seen swearing a black string bikini and cropped gray shirt. 

Spacey was removed as both the star and producer of House of Cards when allegations of sexual assault involving underage minors and other men began rolling in around late 2017, and also had his biopic about Gore Vidal shelved by the streaming giant.

It is unclear how, or if, Spacey’s contract with Netflix was ever settled in the wake of that decision.

There is also the matter of a lawsuit against the actor which is set to be heard in Los Angeles federal court. 

A judge is set to rule in the coming days whether or not the man who has accused Spacey of sexual assault can remain anonymous during the upcoming trial. 

He has alleged that Spacey forced him to touch his genitals and groped him during a massage, while also claiming the actor tried to block him from leaving at points.

Spacey allegedly let the masseuse go after his offer to perform an oral sex act was rebuffed by the man.

Spacey’s Los Angeles visit caught many by surprise, with the actor having declared months back that he is now a resident of Maryland.

There is also little chance of a comeback for Spacey any time soon, with the actor having been fired or edited it out of almost every movie that was set for release in the wake of claims he attempted to sexually assault a then-underage Anthony Rapp.

The one exception to that was Billionaire Boys Club, which was released in July and made $2.2 million at the box office on a $15 million budget. 

The incident that spurred Spacey’s downfall allegedly took place at Spacey’s apartment in 1986 when the actor invited Rapp to a party while they were both appearing on Broadway.

In an interview with Buzzfeed, Rapp said that he found himself alone in the apartment at the end of the night and that Spacey then began to make his move.

‘He picked me up like a groom picks up the bride over the threshold. But I don’t, like, squirm away initially, because I’m like, ‘What’s going on?’ And then he lays down on top of me,’ said Rapp, who detailed being pressed up against the bed before being able to squirm away and ultimately leave the house without being assaulted by Spacey.

Usual suspect: Spacey is also on trial in Massachusetts for allegedly groping a teen, who said he was 23 at the time, while out at a bar in Nantucket (above in January at his arraignment)

Spacey made the decision to come out of the closet in a statement apologizing to actor Anthony Rapp, who said in an interview that the actor attempted to sexually assault him in 1986, an incident Spacey says he does not remember.

Rapp was 14 at the time while Spacey was 26.

The actor did get a bit of good news last week in his criminal case.

Lawyers for the disgraced Oscar winner presented multiple motions to the judge, and while none of those motions have been ruled on, the judge did order that the man accusing Spacey of assault and his girlfriend-at-the-time preserve their phone and cloud records.

The defense wants to extend the time period for which they can obtain any texts of saved information in the accuser’s cloud from January 2017 to December 2017.

That was the lone decision handed down on Monday, with the judge promising to rule on the other motions at the next hearing on April 4 in Nantucket.

Spacey was not in court, after being told back in January that he would not be needed for the appearance.
