Spacey appeared at Westminster Magistrates’ Court today via video link from the Middle East to face the fresh charges.
The actor, who wore a suit and tie, spoke only to confirm his name, date of birth and address during the brief hearing.
Spacey, who appeared under his full name Kevin Spacey Fowler, was bailed to next appear at Southwark Crown Court on January 13.
He was further charged last month with three counts of indecent assault, three of sexual assault and one count of causing a person to engage in sexual activity without consent.
According to court papers, the allegations include sexual touching, touching over clothing and Spacey forcing the complainant’s hand on his privates over clothing.
The new offences, which date back to 2001, bring the total amount of charges Spacey faces to 12.
He previously denied four counts of sexual assault and one other sex offence while appearing at the Old Bailey.
All of those offences were allegedly carried out between 2005 and 2013 while he was artistic director at the Old Vic theatre.
Two of the sexual assault counts were allegedly carried out a man, now aged in his 40s, in London in March 2005.
Spacey is also accused of sexually assaulting a man, now in his 30s, and causing him to engage in penetrative sexual activity without consent in London in August 2008.
He faces a further charge of sexual assault on a man, who is now in his 30s, in Gloucestershire in April 2013.
The actor was granted unconditional bail ahead of a provisional trial date of June 6, 2023.
A Met Police probe was launched in 2017 and American Beauty star Spacey was interviewed under caution two years later.
He wasn’t arrested but spoke to officers about a number of allegations.
London’s Old Vic theatre apologised as it revealed it had received allegations of inappropriate behaviour while Spacey was artistic director.
Theatre bosses said a “cult of personality” had contributed to the organisation’s failings.
Spacey was stripped of an International Emmy Award in the wake of the claims.
His central character in acclaimed Netflix series House of Cards was also killed off after he was axed from the show.
In October, Spacey won a civil lawsuit in the US after he was accused of an “unwanted sexual advance” at a party in 1986.
