Aisle View: Iago On Stage
Huffington Post - 3 months
David Oyelowo and Daniel Craig in Othello Photo: Chad Batka That green-eyed monster is back in town, down at NYTW. With a steely-determined Daniel Craig whispering Iago's innuendos into Daniel Oyelowo's ear, we watch in fascination as the claws close 'round the poor Moor of Venice. While Shakespeare's tragedy will always end as it must, Oyelowo's Othello doesn't stand a chance. This is the hottest-ticket Shakespeare in off-Broadway history, thanks to the presence of superstar Craig (who has been the screen's James Bond since 2006). Oyelowo is a movie star too, of "Selma" (where he played Martin Luther King) and "The Butler." The other star of this Othello, though he doesn't sell tickets, is director Sam Gold of The Flick, Fun Home et al. Gold, when working with revivals (as opposed to new plays), has a tendency of settling on sometimes severe concepts which allows us to see said plays with a new eye. This doesn't necessarily always work out (remember his Look Bac ...

Andy Murray wins Tour finals, secures world No. 1 ranking
ABC News - 3 months
LONDON -- Andy Murray capped off the finest season of his career with two more significant feats. In front of some of Hollywood's finest including Kevin Spacey, Clive Owen, Woody Harrelson and Jude Law, Murray charged to a 6-3, 6-4 win Sunday against Novak Djokovic to win his first ATP World Tour championship and secure the No. 1 ranking. The match, between two players whose friendship goes back to their teenage years, when they grew up playing together at the S?nchez-Casal academy in Barcelona, lasted 1 hour, 42 minutes, and when it was over, Murray dropped his racket and put his hands on his head. "It's something I never, never expected," Murray said in his on-court interview. Djokovic gave him a warm embrace and some kind words at the net in a show of the enormous respect between them. "Today we both were part of the history," Djokovic said. "It was an honor to be part of the big occasion. Andy's definitely No. 1 of the world. He's the best... ...

Are Democrats Really More Racist Than Republicans?
Huffington Post - 4 months
Throughout this election, Republicans like Donald Trump and professor/filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza have attempted to link Hillary Clinton to the longtime past sins of the Democratic Party. Is it a valid criticism? And how do Republicans really feel about these old Democrats? D'Souza created a film titled "Hillary's America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party," which links Hillary Clinton to every negative element of the Democratic Party, even those back in the 1800s, including the Trail of Tears under Andrew Jackson, slavery under several Democratic administrations, and Reconstruction under Democratic rule. Donald Trump continued the refrain from the movie, linking Hillary Clinton to the Democrats of the 1800s, and himself to the Republicans of the 1800s, according to Steve Benen of MSNBC. "The Republican Party is the party of Abraham Lincoln. Not bad," said Trump, outside of Seattle, Washington. "Not bad. It's also the party of freedom, equality and opportunity. It is ...

Jennifer Garner Talks 'Modern' Family With 'Friend' (Yes, Friend!) Ben Affleck In New Interview
Huffington Post - 7 months
Much like the cat in Jennifer Garner’s new movie, “Nine Lives,” rumors about a reunion between the “Alias” actress and estranged husband Ben Affleck just won’t die.  But Garner, who’s largely avoided questions about her highly publicized split with Affleck after a candid Vanity Fair profile in February, addressed the couple’s new family dynamic in an interview with NBC’s “Today” on Thursday. As committed parents, Garner and Affleck spent the summer in Europe with their three children ― Violet, 10, Seraphina, 7, and Samuel, 4 ― while Affleck filmed “Justice League,” leading some to believe a reconciliation was in the works.  “Ben was working in London on ‘Justice League’ and I felt like, ‘Well, the kids should have that experience,’” Garner said. “He and I are great friends and we just all went en masse.” 'We are definitely a modern family': #JenniferGarner talks to @nmoralesnbc about family and marriage https://t.co/jJpZAE5BoG — TODAY (@TODAYshow) August 4, 2016 ...

Yahoo News - 10 months
“Elvis & Nixon,” a comedy that reimagines their unlikely White House encounter, opens in U.S. theaters on Friday after premiering at New York’s Tribeca film festival. The meeting, one of the more surreal moments in modern American history, probably best known for the photos of the two (played here by Michael Shannon and Kevin Spacey) that came out of the meeting. The details were important to director Liza Johnson in bringing this world to life. But the script takes artistic license too. According to the archives, photos were taken at the start of the meeting, for example.

    More Details Hide Details He is a Democrat and a friend of Bill Clinton, having met the former U.S. President before his presidency began. He described Clinton as "one of the shining lights" of the political process.
    In the 2006 season, Spacey suffered a major setback with a production of Arthur Miller's Resurrection Blues, directed by Robert Altman.
    More Details Hide Details Despite an all-star cast (including Matthew Modine and future House of Cards co-star Neve Campbell) and the pedigree of Miller's script, Spacey's decision to lure Altman to the stage proved disastrous: after a fraught rehearsal period, the play opened to a critical panning, and closed after only a few weeks. Later in the year, Spacey starred in Eugene O'Neill's A Moon for the Misbegotten, along with Colm Meaney and Eve Best. The play received excellent reviews for Spacey and Best, and was transferred to Broadway in 2007. For the spring part of the 2007–08 season, Jeff Goldblum and Laura Michelle Kelly joined Spacey as the three characters in David Mamet's 1988 play Speed-the-Plow. In January 2009, he directed the premiere of Joe Sutton's Complicit, with Richard Dreyfuss, David Suchet and Elizabeth McGovern.

Dexter Haven, the Cary Grant role in the film version.

  • 2005
    Age 45
    In the 2005 season, Spacey made his UK Shakespearean debut, to good notices, in the title role of Richard II directed by Trevor Nunn.

  • 2004
    Age 44
    Spacey's first season started in September 2004, and opened with the British premiere of the play Cloaca by Maria Goos, directed by Spacey, which opened to mixed reviews.
    More Details Hide Details
  • 2003
    Age 43
    In February 2003, Spacey announced that he was returning to London to become the artistic director of the Old Vic, one of the city's oldest theatres.
    More Details Hide Details Appearing at a press conference with Judi Dench and Elton John, he promised both to appear on stage and to bring in big-name talent. Spacey undertook to remain in the post for a full ten years. The Old Vic Theatre Company staged shows eight months out of the year.
  • 2001
    Age 41
    In 2001, Spacey co-hosted, with Judi Dench, the Unite for the Future Gala, a UK fundraiser for the British victims of 9/11 and Médecins Sans Frontières at London's Old Vic Theatre, produced by Harvey Goldsmith and Dominic Madden.
    More Details Hide Details He played a physically and emotionally scarred grade school teacher in Pay It Forward (2000), a patient in a mental institution who may or may not be an alien in K-Pax (2001), and singer Bobby Darin in Beyond the Sea (2004). The latter was a lifelong dream project for Spacey, who took on co-writing, directing, co-producing, and starring duties in the biography/musical about Darin's life, career, and relationship with actress Sandra Dee. Facing little interest for backing in the United States, Spacey went to the United Kingdom and Germany for funding. Almost all of the film was made in Berlin. Spacey provided his own vocals on the Beyond the Sea soundtrack and appeared in several tribute concerts around the time of the film's release. He received mostly positive reviews for his singing, as well as a Golden Globe nomination for his performance. However, reviewers criticized the age disparity between Spacey and Darin, noting that Spacey was too old to convincingly portray Darin, particularly during the early stages of the singer's life depicted in the film.
  • THIRTIES
  • 1999
    Age 39
    A 1999 Sunday Times article stated that Spacey's "love affair with acting, and the absence of a visible partner in the life of an attractive 40-year-old, has resulted in misunderstanding and Esquire magazine's bet-hedging assertion two years ago that he must be gay".
    More Details Hide Details He responded to such rumors by telling Playboy and other interviewers that he was not gay, and telling Lesley White of the Sunday Times, "I chose for a long time not to answer these questions because of the manner in which they were asked, and because I was never talking to someone I trusted, so why should I? Recently I chose to participate because it's a little hard on the people I love." In an interview with Gotham, Spacey said, "I've just never believed in pimping my personal life out for publicity. I'm not interested in doing it. Never will do it. They can gossip all they want; they can speculate all they want. I just happen to believe that there's a public life and there's a private life. Everybody has a right to a private life no matter what their profession is." In 2000, he took his girlfriend of several years to the Academy Awards and thanked her during the acceptance speech for his Best Actor award. Reports in 1999 and 2000 suggested that she was a script supervisor named Dianne Dreyer.
    Spacey won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Actor and earned another Tony nomination in 1999 for The Iceman Cometh.
    More Details Hide Details
    Spacey won universal praise and a Best Actor Oscar for his role as a depressed suburban father who re-evaluates his life in 1999's American Beauty; the same year, he was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

  • 1997
    Age 37
    Spacey played an egomaniacal district attorney in A Time to Kill (1996), and founded Trigger Street Productions in 1997, with the purpose of producing and developing entertainment across various media.
    More Details Hide Details He made his directorial debut with the film Albino Alligator (1996). The film was a failure at the box office, grossing $339,379 with a budget of $6 million, but critics praised Spacey's direction. He also voiced Hopper in the Pixar Animation Studios film A Bug's Life (1998).
  • 1995
    Age 35
    His work in Seven, The Usual Suspects, and Outbreak earned him Best Supporting Actor honors at the 1995 Society of Texas Film Critics Awards.
    More Details Hide Details
    Spacey appeared in the 1995 thriller film Seven, making a sudden entrance late in the film as the serial killer John Doe after going unmentioned in the film's advertisements and opening credits.
    More Details Hide Details
  • 1991
    Age 31
    In 1991, he won a Tony Award for his portrayal of Uncle Louie in Neil Simon's Broadway hit Lost in Yonkers.
    More Details Hide Details Spacey's father was unconvinced that Spacey could make a career for himself as an actor, and did not change his mind until Spacey became well-known. Some of Spacey's early roles include a widowed eccentric millionaire on L.A. Law, the television miniseries The Murder of Mary Phagan (1988), opposite Lemmon, and the comedy See No Evil, Hear No Evil (1989). He earned a fan base after playing the criminally insane arms dealer Mel Profitt on the television series Wiseguy. He quickly developed a reputation as a character actor, and was cast in bigger roles, including one-half of a bickering Connecticut couple in the dark comedy film The Ref (1994), a malicious Hollywood studio boss in the satire Swimming with Sharks, and the malevolent office manager in the ensemble film Glengarry Glen Ross (1992), gaining him positive notices by critics. His performance as the enigmatic criminal Verbal Kint in The Usual Suspects won him the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor.
  • TWENTIES
  • 1986
    Age 26
    His prominence as a stage actor began in 1986, when he was cast opposite Jack Lemmon, Peter Gallagher and Bethel Leslie as Jamie, the eldest Tyrone son in Jonathan Miller's lauded production of Eugene O'Neill's Long Day's Journey into Night.
    More Details Hide Details Lemmon in particular would become a mentor to Spacey. He made his first major television appearance in the second season premiere of Crime Story, playing a Kennedy-esque American senator. Although his interest soon turned to film, Spacey remained actively involved in the live theater community.
    In 1986, he appeared in a production of Sleuth in a New Jersey dinner theatre.

    More Details Hide Details At Chatsworth, Spacey starred in the school's senior production of The Sound of Music, playing the part of Captain Georg von Trapp with Mare Winningham as Maria von Trapp. He took "Spacey" (his middle name and his paternal grandmother's maiden name) as his stage name. Several reports have incorrectly suggested that he took his name in tribute to actor Spencer Tracy, combining Tracy's first and last names. He had tried to succeed as a comedian for several years, before attending the Juilliard School in New York City, where he studied drama, between 1979 and 1981. During this time period, Spacey performed stand-up comedy in bowling alley talent contests.
