A disheveled Kevin Spacey was spotted in public for the first time in over a year on Friday.
The disgraced Oscar winner was seen emerging from a rehearsal space and making his way into a waiting minivan while dressed in sagging wind pants, unlaced shoes, a makeshift balaclava and an undershirt that strained to fit over his protruding gut.
He then topped the look off with an unnecessary scarf.
Spacey, 59, carried two books in his arms as well as a black backpack with a red and blue pencil, suggesting that the actor may have been in rehearsal.
The actor quickly made his way into a waiting car that was almost completely hidden by a green minivan before racing away with a man who looked to be his manager and constant companion Evan Lowenstein.

Time’s up: The 59-year-old actor had a sizable gut and was dressed in a bizarre outfit that included sweatpants, a fitted undershirt and a knitted balaclava
Team Spacey: He was met by a man who looked to be his one-hit wonder manager Evan Lowenstein as well as another woman whose vehicle carefully shielded his car
Plumped up: The actor was last seen shortly after checking in to a rehab facility in Arizona, having flown to the treatment center in the wake of multiple allegations of sexual assault
Rain king: Spacey released a bizarre video at that start of the week, soon after it was revealed he had been criminally charged for a 2016 incident in Massachusetts
Struggling actor: Spacey carried along a pair of books in what looked to be an homage to another man battling criminal charges following sexual assault allegations, Harvey Weinstein
Constant: Spacey looked far different than the last time he was seen in public back in December of 2017 during a jog in Arizona (above with Lowenstein) , but he was wearing the same pants
Spacey looked far different than the last time he was seen in public back in December of 2017, though he was wearing the same pants.
In those photos, obtained exclusively by DailyMail.com, the actor was seen exercising at the Meadows Rehab Centre in Wickenburg, Arizona.
He was joined by Lowenstein at that time too, who prior to joining Spacey’s team managed to find brief fame with his brother as the pop duo Evan & Jaron.
The duo managed to score a single top 10 hit in 2000 with their saccharine single Crazy for This Girl, which was released the same year that Spacey won his second Oscar for American Beauty.
There are currently no projects lined up in Spacey’s future, save a scheduled appearance in Nantucket District Court next month to be arraigned on a charge of Indecent Assault and Battery.
His lawyer filed a motion however on Friday asking the judge in that case to excuse his client from his own arraignment, with the spotlight-seeking Spacey suddenly hoping to keep a low profile after being accused of trying to ‘jack off’ a drunk teenager.
The prosecution hit back at that request, demanding that the actor appear in person.
Spacey did manage to start off his day with a minor victory in the case.
Audio that was released from a hearing last week revealed that the young man who claims he was sexually assaulted by Spacey back in 2016 at a Nantucket bar did not film evidence of the actor groping him or touching him in an inappropriate manner.
In a court hearing on December 20, the actor’s lawyer tore apart a claim that there was damning video evidence after reading it in the police report filed by State Trooper Gerald Donovan.
The claims in that report were all based on interviews with the alleged victim and eyewitnesses at the bar that night.
In that report, Donovan writes: ‘[Redacted] said his girlfriend did not believe him so that’s when he snapchatted the video.’
Hiding out: Spacey has been incredibly careful to stay under the radar ever since Anthony Rapp first accused him of sexual misconduct last year
Wrinkling time: Spacey opted for some extremely fitted pieces, most notably his skintight shirt and hideaway headgear
Usual suspect: A second probe is currently underway in Los Angeles after an allegation was brought to the attention of the district attorney in August
That claim, which was submitted with the criminal complaint and filed in Nantucket District Court, led to multiple outlets reporting that there was evidence of the alleged assault, but as Donovan himself testified last week that is not the case.
‘What the video shows is a person’s hand make contact with the shirt, correct?’ Spacey’s lawyer Alan Jackson is heard asking in audio obtained by the Boston Globe.
‘Yes,’ responded Donovan.
‘Okay. Not the — any body part,’ asked Jackson.
‘Correct, you don’t see any body parts,’ confirmed Donovan.
The case stems from an incident that allegedly occurred in the early morning hours of July 8, 2016 at The Club Car in Nantucket.
The then-18-year-old-man accused Spacey of trying to ‘jack him off’ after the Oscar winner allegedly unzipped this fly, stuck his hand in his pants and began to rub his penis.
Jackson questioned why the victim allowed himself to be assaulted by the actor for three minutes, stating: ‘That’s an incredibly long time to have a strange man’s hands in your pants.’
He also used the hearing to address the fact that the alleged victim lied about his age, claiming he was 23, and was drinking heavily when the alleged assault took place.
‘He may have been so drunk that he was black out drunk, but he didn’t black out at the Club Car, he may have blacked out once he got home,’ said Jackson while Donovan was on the stand.
‘That’s correct,’ replied the trooper.
Paying it forward:
All the free time in the world:
Exit stage left:
Jackson may soon have a second case on his hands with Spacey as well, which would put him back on his home turf.
A spokesperson for the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office revealed that a probe into Spacey’s alleged criminal behavior that was launched back in August is still ongoing at this time.
A previous investigation was ultimately dismissed by the DA.
Jackson is familiar with the workings of that office, having spent close to two decades as a Deputy Assistant for the same office before going into private practice.
A spokesperson for the organization spoke with DailyMail.com and said: ‘A sex assault case was presented yesterday to our office by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department involving Kevin Spacey. It remains under review.’
This news comes a year after the two-time Oscar winner was accused of sexually assaulting a then-underage Anthony Rapp at his Manhattan apartment.
Spacey responded by coming out as gay and entering a rehab facility in Arizona, where he remained for weeks.
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.
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.
