I feel it`s a responsibility for anyone who breaks through a certain ceiling... to send the elevator back down and give others a helpful lift.
  • April 2000: The Los Angeles Times reported that he was being considered for the role of Inspector Clouseau, in The Pink Panther (2006). The following month, Spacey denied he was in negotiations for the role of Clouseau. He said he'd only had two conversations with MGM about the role, but that since the announcement, claiming he was in the running for it, he'd had to answer 8000 Pink Panther questions.
  • Went to Chatsworth High School in Los Angeles with Mare Winningham. During their senior year, Kevin played von Trapp and Mare played Maria in a school production of The Sound of Music. Upon hearing of their Oscar nominations in 1996, Winningham sent a telegram to Spacey saying: "Captain von Trapp - congratulations on your nomination - Maria."
  • Has twice shaved his head completely bald to play the villain in movies. He did it to play "John Doe" in Se7en (1995) and "Lex Luthor" in Superman Returns (2006).
  • Spencer Tracy, Henry Fonda, James Stewart, Jack Lemmon, Al Pacino, and Jason Robards are his idols.
  • Has said that working with Jack Lemmon on a stage production of "A Long Day's Journey into Night" changed his life. Previously possessive of a reckless ambition, he said he was amazed at how Lemmon was both a great actor and generous to a fault as both a co-star and a human being, teaching him that being a good person and a good actor were not mutually exclusive. He still considers Lemmon his role model.
