Kevin Spacey is a veteran American actor and a highly decorated artist. A two-time Academy Award winner, Spacey’s prowess as an actor and director is not unknown. His versatility is what makes him a one-of-a-kind actor in the present league as well.
Spacey’s acting journey commenced as a theatre actor. Upon gaining prominence, he soon found himself featured in television and films. What gave him the edge over other actors of his generation was his versatility and ability to pull off any character with élan. From starring in comedy-drama ‘Swimming with Sharks’ to the psychological thriller ‘Seven’, neo-noir crime film ‘L.A. Confidential’, drama ‘Pay It Forward’, science fiction-mystery ‘K-PAX’, musical biopic ‘Beyond the Sea’, superhero ‘Superman Returns’ to action film ‘Baby Driver’, Spacey’s filmography not just reflects his versatility but also his success story. His best roles came for the crime thriller ‘The Usual Suspects’ and drama ‘American Beauty’, both of which gained him the prestigious Academy Awards.
Spacey’s film journey has had a few hiccups as well. His directorial debut ‘Albino Alligator’ was a major disaster and failed at the box office terribly. Spacey’s other unsuccessful films include ‘Fred Claus’, ‘21’ and ‘Edison’.
