The Los Angeles County District Attorney's office said Tuesday it would not bring sex crime charges against actors Kevin Spacey, Anthony Anderson and Steven Seagal, the Hollywood Reporter reported Tuesday.

Prosecutors are however reviewing another case involving Spacey that includes allegations he attacked a man in Malibu in October 2016.

The statute of limitations has also reportedly passed for Seagal's case, and the reporting party declined to be interviewed for the case against Anderson.

Spacey, who has been publicly accused of sexual misconduct by multiple men - some of whom said they were minors when the alleged incidents occurred - is also under investigation by London Metropolitan Police for a series of alleged incidents in the United Kingdom, the Los Angeles Times reported in July. The district attorney's office added that the case did not involve an underage victim.

The case for the action-movie star Seagal, who was accused of assaulting an 18-year-old acquaintance in 1993, was also abandoned on the same grounds.

Seagal has denied the accusations against him.

Donaldson leaves behind rain full of memories for Jays fans
If he's claimed, there's no chance the Blue Jays will pull him back and keep him and according to Jon Morosi of MLB.com , the St. Louis Cardinals have emerged as a lead suitor going into Friday night's midnight Eastern deadline for postseason eligibility.

A number of allegations of sexual misconduct have been made against the Oscar-winning actor since last November, when he was accused by actor Anthony Rapp of making a sexual advance in 1986.

Police in London are investigating six criminal cases against him.

After Rapp made his allegation, Spacey issued a statement saying he did not remember the encounter but apologised for "deeply inappropriate drunken behaviour". That makes it too old to prosecute under the relevant penal code at the time.

The former House of Cards star has been accused by multiple men of sexual assault and misconduct during the #MeToo movement.

The allegations against Spacey saw him dropped from Netflix series House of Cards and replaced by another actor in All the Money in the World.
