Jon Bernthal says he ‘lost a ton of respect’ for Kevin Spacey on the set of ‘Baby Driver’

Recalling his experience working opposite Kevin Spacey on the set of Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver in Atlanta last year, Jon Bernthal doesn’t have the fondest memories of the actor he once loved and respected. “I thought he was a bit of a bully,” Bernthal told Jim Norton and Sam Roberts about Spacey during an interview on Sirius XM. “I didn’t really care for the way he was behaving toward some of the other people on set.”

Though Bernthal said he wasn’t on the Baby Driver set too often, he said that, when he was there, Spacey “really rubbed [him] the wrong way” and he remembers “losing a ton of respect for him” during that time. “I remember at the time thinking, ‘Man, if that was a woman that he was talking to, I would’ve done something, I would’ve said something,’” Bernthal said. “I was really happy to sort of get out of there for that reason.”

Noting that he did not see anything relatively close to the allegations coming about Spacey happening on the set, Bernthal said he thinks “it would be weak of [him] to sort of pile on about some shit that I don’t know about, but the kind of man he was when I saw him, working with him, made me lose all respect for him and I was enormously disappointed.”

Since Star Trek: Discovery actor Anthony Rapp first exposed Spacey’s long history of predatory behavior in an interview with BuzzFeed, recalling an encounter he had at Spacey’s New York City apartment in 1986 when he was just 14-years-old, multiple men have come forward accusing Spacey of sexual misconduct. Earlier this week, Spacey reportedly checked into a sex addiction rehab program at a clinic in Arizona.

Paramount taps ‘Fargo’ creator Noah Hawley to write, direct next installment in ‘Star Trek’ series

Fresh off the release of his feature directorial debut Lucy in the Sky last month, Noah Hawley has been set to write and direct the upcoming next installment in the Star Trek franchise, according to Deadline.

Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, and the rest of the principal cast are all expected to return for Star Trek 4, which Hawley will also produce for his 26 Keys banner along with JJ Abrams and Bad Robot.

The film is not in any way related to the R-rated spinoff Abrams and Quentin Tarantino have been developing with writer Mark L. Smith and will serve as a direct sequel to 2016’s Star Trek Beyond.

S.J. Clarkson had been attached to direct Star Trek 4 as recently as last year and was poised to become the first woman to helm a film in the sci-fi series but reportedly parted ways with the project after development stalled in mid-2018.

Hawley — perhaps best known for his work on FX series such as Fargo and Legion — recently made his directorial debut with the Natalie Portman-led drama Lucy in the Sky, which tanked at the domestic box office amid harsh reviews from critics.

Production on Star Trek 4 is expected to get underway in 2020.
