Kevin Spacey [26-July-1959]
53 years ago today, the world welcomed Kevin Spacey, celebrated actor, director, producer and occasional singer. Spacey has won two Oscars, one for ‘Best Supporting Actor’ for The Usual Suspects in 1995 and another for ‘Best Actor’ for American Beauty in 1999. He’s, at least in my opinion, one of the greatest living actors; one of those I’m happy to see in anything. For those of you who haven’t seen it yet, he was also pretty awesome as the surprise villain in one of the definitive movies of the 90’s. Spacey shines as well in L.A. Confidential, Margin Call and Horrible Bosses, among others. Can you tell I’m a fan? Happy birthday, Kevin!
