He told reporters that "I was in contention (for it) a long time ago, so I was familiar with it". I admire Ridley Scott and I'm thrilled to be making a movie for him.

Christopher Plummer has been cast to replace Kevin Spacey in his role in "All the Money in the World". The move followed allegations that the actor made sexual advances toward several minors in the past, including Broadway's Anthony Rapp.

"Extra" spoke with actor Christopher Plummer at the NY premiere of "The Man Who Invented Christmas", in which he plays Scrooge, just hours before he is set to take on his next role: replacing Kevin Spacey in the upcoming Ridley Scott-directed film "All the Money in the World".

All The Money In The World will be released in cinemas in the United Kingdom and Ireland on Friday 5 January 2018. He admitted, "It's going to be very tough, but very exciting". "It's worth getting a go". I don't have a day off.

When asked who he would most like to profile, Talese, 85, said: 'I would like to talk to Kevin Spacey. "It seems endless. About 9 to 10".

"They stayed and agreed to do it all over again", he said. "Which is remarkable. I don't know Mark or Michelle, and I will meet them on the set". He also used the opportunity to open up about his sexuality, saying "I choose now to live as a gay man". "I'm just trying to be as good as I can be in the part". "But it fascinates me because it is very clear and very well written".

Spacey's ouster comes amid an increasing number of sexual assault allegations against the actor which have knocked Spacey from a number of projects slated to feature the two-time Academy Award victor.

"I don't discuss that". "The situation is very sad". "Kevin is such a talented actor, terrifically gifted. That's all I can say, because that's it". "The whole circumstance is sad", Plummer said. "I'm very saddened by what happened to Kevin, but what can I do?" But what can I do? The actor is pleased with the role, sharing, "I'm fascinated by doing real people".

The Oscar contending movie was already finished in post-production and set for its USA release on December 22.
