It's generally believed that means Spacey projects, including a biopic of Gore Vidal that was supposed to star him, as well as the sixth and final season of House of Cards that's actually moving forward without Spacey.

When the allegations came out, Spacey deflected the news by publicly coming out as gay.

The New York Times reports that Greg Kinnear and Diane Lane have now joined the cast and will play a brother and sister.

According to TheWrap.com, Lane and Kinnear will portray siblings on the TV hit, although specific details about their characters have not been revealed.

Spacey, who plays Frank Underwood in the show, has been accused of making unwanted sexual advances towards fellow actor Anthony Rapp in 1986, when Rapp was just 14 years old and Spacey was 12 years his senior. The series is, famously, the first original series produced by Netflix and the first ever to receive major Primetime Emmy Nominations, a total 53 to date, with seven wins. Considering the nature of the show, perhaps they'll be a pair of elite D.C. spin doctors ushered in to smooth out the kinks of Underwood's disappearance? In addition, House of Cards won two Golden Globes and was nominated six times.

Both actors are Oscar nominees and the former is best-known for her roles in "Unfaithful" and "Under the Tuscan Sun", "Hollywoodland" and "A Perfect Storm". She will also appear in the upcoming Amazon series The Romanoffs. On the television side, Kinnear can now be seen in Philip K. Dick's Electric Dreams. Kinnear is repped by WME and attorney Rick Genow.
