I'd heard rumors about some of Spacey's (spicy but not necessarily illegal) actions over the years, before he was accused of doing stuff that was illegal. He's an excellent actor, but as these accusations became more clear, most folks seem to be done hiring and wanting to see new work from him. There are lots of other excellent actors to see and cast in future shows and films, and he has made more income from some of his films than most actors make in their lifetimes. So, no need to "take out a collection for him" (I say slightly facetiously). Plus sometimes actors who are famous tend to become less famous or "in demand" over time after having had, say, a number of films that flopped at the box-office, too. There are plenty of actors in old films that if you read about their political nature or things in their lifestyle, you might find abhorrent, like, say Adolph Menjou, who named names during the McCarthy period; however, he's featured in a lot of great films, and I'm not giving up on watching films starring Deanna Durbin, Gary Cooper or Katharine Hepburn, etc. and other films in which he appeared just because he was in them, sometimes playing the male lead. During his time, he stopped getting as much work as he got older, too, and it's possible his arch-conservative work as well as getting older, played some part in it. If Spacey wants to produce something himself, let him have at it, and see who buys tickets. It'd be his money he's risking anyway. I think film or theater producers can find someone else just as good who just may not be as famous (or infamous) as he now is, who can get great reviews and perhaps become famous.
