Two more men have come forward with another allegation of sexual assault against Kevin Spacey, according to the New York Daily News.

One of the new accusers is a Broadway actor but decided to keep his identity hidden, told The BBC that when he was 17 he stayed at Spacey’s house and woke up to find Spacey lying ontop of his stomach.

The man, who went by the name John in the interview, says he met Spacey at a program in 1984 and came to visit him in New York a year later. He claims Spacey touched his thigh, arm and shoulder during the first night he was in town, showing affection "in a way I certainly wasn't interested in."

He says he then refused to spend the night in Spacey’s bed, after Spacey asked, and slept on the sofa instead. The next morning, he woke up to Spacey's head on his stomach, and his arms wrapped around him.

"He was in his underwear, I was fully clothed," John said. "I supposed it was some sort of New York theatre actor 'good morning.'"

John claims Spacey displayed his affection once again the next day, leaving John uncomfortable to the point of "tears."

These new allegations come on the heels of Netflix suspending production of the Spacey led series ‘House of Cards’ on Tuesday.

Netflix and the maker of “House of Cards” have announced they have suspended production on the show starring Kevin Spacey, according to the Associated Press.

In a joint statement Tuesday, Netflix and producer Media Rights Capital say production was put on hold to review the situation and address “any concerns of our cast and crew.

The political satire is filming its sixth and final season amid fallout from a 1980s sexual abuse allegation leveled at Spacey by a former child star.

Netflix spokeswoman declined to provide further details about the action. On Monday, executives from the two companies traveled to the Baltimore, Maryland, set to meet with actors and others involved in the production. Spacey was not scheduled to work that day.

The streaming service announced Monday its Emmy-winning “House of Cards” would come to an end after next season, a decision it says was made before Spacey was accused of trying to seduce a 14-year-old actor in 1986.

Spacey has apologized for the incident he said he doesn’t recall but which would have stemmed from “drunken behavior.” He also spoke publicly for the first time about being gay, which drew backlash from some observers as an attempt at deflection.

A release date for the final “House of Cards” episodes has yet to be announced. Netflix is developing a possible spinoff of the drama that helped put the streaming service on the TV series map.

The Associated Press contributed to this story.

According to Variety, the next season of Netflix's "House of Cards" will be its last. The news comes on the same day that Anthony Rapp accused Kevin Spacey of unwanted sexual advances back in 1986. The upcoming season will be the sixth and is currently in production.

Rapp has claimed that Spacey tried to seduce him at a party when Rapp was just 14 years old and Spacey was 26.

"House of Cards" was launched back in 2013 and is seen as the catalyst to the other original programming that Netflix has produced. The series stars Spacey as ex-President Francis Underwood and Robin Wright as his wife and current President of the United States.

The 13 episode sixth season is expected to debut in 2018.
