Actor Kevin Spacey has been ordered to pay the “House of Cards” producer $31 million in damages for breach of contract and to mitigate damages caused by his behavior while filming.

The complaint came in a series of testimonies against Spacey, the two-Oscar winner in The Usual Suspects (1995) and American Beauty (1999), who witnessed the collapse of his career in 2017 after several allegations of sexual assault.

When the cases emerged, the producer canceled the actor’s role in “House of Cards,” having completely rewrote the sixth season and reduced the number of episodes from 13 to eight to meet the release date announced by Netflix.
