Among the charges against the Hollywood star, 63, are sexual touching, fondling on clothing and forcing the complainant’s hand against his private parts on clothing.

Spacey faced the charges at Southwark Crown Court on Friday, after he denied five allegations about three other men who are now in their 30s and 40s.

The new charges include three counts of indecent assault, three counts of sexual assault and one count of inducing a person to engage in sexual activity without consent, on unspecified dates between 2001 and 2005.

He now faces a total of 12 charges relating to four men between 2001 and 2013.

The two-time Oscar winner, known for starring in American Beauty, The Usual Suspects and House Of Cards, appeared at the Old Bailey in July last year to deny all five previous charges.

He pleaded not guilty to four counts of sexual assault and one count of causing a person to engage in penetrative sexual activity without their consent.

Spacey was released on unconditional bail and will face a four-week trial on all charges on June 6.

A pre-trial examination is scheduled to take place on April 5.

In October last year, the actor, who was artistic director of The Old Vic between 2004 and 2015, won a civil trial in the US where he was charged with ‘unwanted sexual advance’ during of a party in 1986.

In that lawsuit, he ‘categorically denied’ the charges and said he ‘had no sexual interest or desire’ at or since the time of the alleged incident.
