Actor Kevin Spacey remains visible in a single shot of a movie he was replaced in after sexual misconduct accusations emerged against him, according to Business Insider.
Business Insider on Tuesday reported that director Ridley Scott has confirmed Spacey appears in one shot of the film’s final cut.
Spacey portrayed billionaire J. Paul Getty in “All the Money in the World” before he was replaced by fellow actor Christopher Plummer a month before the movie’s release.
Scott confirmed that Spacey appears as Getty in a flashback scene where the billionaire exits a train in a desert while wearing a white suit.
The wide shot shows Getty walking off the train down some stairs, but the billionaire’s face is not visible to viewers.
The movie next cuts to a closeup shot of Plummer playing Getty, which uses a background resembling the desert due to a green screen.
The wide shot was clearly filmed on location, according to Business Insider, meaning it would have been a logistical challenge having Plummer duplicate Spacey’s scene in the same fashion.
Scott was able to replace Spacey’s scenes in the movie with versions including Plummer as they were mostly in one exterior locations or interiors, all of which could be filmed on studio sets.

Plummer could be swapped into Spacey’s closeup scenes by using a green screen, much like the shot of Getty in the desert.
“All the Money in the World” premiered in the U.S. Monday and recounts attempts to convince Getty to pay an organized crime syndicate a high ransom for his kidnapped grandson.
Plummer has since been nominated for this year’s Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor despite Spacey originally playing his role in the film.
Spacey was largely erased from “All the Money in the World” after actor Anthony Rapp last October accused him of sexually advancing upon him when he was 14.
Numerous other men have since accused Spacey of sexual misconduct ranging from assault to harassment.
