Ridley Scott wasn’t able to completely erase Kevin Spacey.
The disgraced actor, who was replaced in “All the Money in the World” after being accused of sexual assault by more than a dozen men, still appears in a flashback scene in the movie.
The wide shot shows Spacey’s J. Paul Getty walking off a train in the desert. The closeup, however, clearly shows Christopher Plummer, who replaced the actor in reshoots.
Scott cut Spacey from the movie amid sexual misconduct accusations, a decision that he said he didn’t question.
“You can’t tolerate any kind of behavior like that. And it will affect the film,” the director told Entertainment Weekly.
“We cannot let one person’s action affect the good work of all these other people. It’s that simple.”
The cast, including co-stars Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg, and crew reportedly voted unanimously to reshoot Spacey’s scenes.
Plummer was recently nominated for a Golden Globe for the role.
