Anthony Rapp came forward Sunday night to say fellow actor Kevin Spacey pushed him on a bed and climbed on top of him during a party at the future Academy Award winner's apartment. Rapp, then 14, got away before the encounter went any further.
But who is Rapp?
The actor, who just turned 46, can currently be seen in CBS All Access' “Star Trek: Discovery” as Lt. Paul Stamets.
The Illinois native has an extensive theater background, having originated the role of Mark Cohen in the hit Broadway musical “Rent.” He returned to the part for the 2005 movie adaptation and subsequent 2009 tour.
He also played the title role in the 1999 Broadway revival of “You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown” and was in the original 2014 Broadway cast of “If/Then.”
Rapp's film roles include “Dazed and Confused” (1993), and “A Beautiful Mind” (2001).
Among his recent TV credits: “The Knick” and “The Good Fight.”
