All the Money in the World: Oscar Winner Christopher Plummer on Replacing Disgraced Oscar Winner Spacey

Oscar winner Christopher Plummer will replace Kevin Spacey in Ridley Scott’s upcoming thriller All the Money in the World.

After numerous sexual misconduct allegations against Spacey, Sony and director Scott announced last week they would re-shoot several scenes where the actor was set to play billionaire John Paul Getty.

“I think it’s very sad what happened to him,” Plummer said. “Kevin is such a talented and a terrifically gifted actor, and it’s so sad. It’s such a shame.”

Plummer said that Ridley Scott called him last week to offer him the part.

“It’s really not replacing Spacey.  It’s starting all over again,” Plummer said. “Although the situation is very sad. I’m very saddened by what happened to Kevin, but what can I do? I’ve got a role. I admire Ridley Scott and I’m thrilled to be making a movie for him. And so I thought, that was it. Ages ago I was in contention for the role, way back. So  I was familiar with it, and then Ridley came to me, and I agreed.”
