With two Oscars, a Golden Globe and a Tony, Kevin Spacey has become one of Hollywood’s most-respected actors. He’s also one of its most famously secretive. But we’ve still managed to uncover 20 things that you may not know about the talented star.
20. He’s a stand-up kinda guy
Spacey has only occasionally flirted with comedy on the big screen. However, the star actually began his glittering career chasing laughs. While studying at the Juilliard School he tried to make it on the New York stand-up circuit, even performing at talent nights in bowling alleys!
19. He did a duet with a Rat Pack legend
Spacey first showcased his dulcet tones when he played Bobby Darin in his 2004 passion project, Beyond the Sea. Three years later he actually got to perform alongside another star from Hollywood’s Golden Age, albeit posthumously. Indeed, Spacey recorded two tracks with Dean Martin on the duets collection, Forever Cool.
