"So there was a "lack of sufficient evidence" to proceed with a case", the L.A. County District Attorney's Office said.

Prosecutors are reviewing a second case involving the House of Cards and American Beauty star that includes allegations he attacked a man in Malibu in October 2016.

Not many details have come to light about that case, but Seagal has been publicly accused of sexual harassment or assault by multiple women, including Jenny McCarthy, who says he tried to make her strip in an audition though the script didn't call for nudity, an allegation Seagal denied.

She told TheWrap that she was 18 at the time of the alleged rape, which she claimed happened after Seagal invited her to a wrap party for the movie at his Beverly Hills home in 1993.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney's office is declining to prosecute certain sex crime charges against Kevin Spacey, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

But in the allegations against Anderson, prosecutors said the alleged victim "declined to be interviewed".
