Actor Kevin Spacey faces charges of indecent assault and battery of a then 18-year-old boy in 2016. He hadn't spoken publicly in over a year, but Monday released a YouTube video in which he appears as Frank Underwood, his "House of Cards" character. Nick Schifrin asks Alissa Wilkinson of Vox whether Spacey might be planning a comeback, as have other male celebrities accused of sexual assault.
