Entertainment Tonight There may be a Kevin Spacey/Shipping News sighting on the Friday edition of Entertainment Tonight.

Cocaine Sigh .. You might as well see it here. I haven’t seen the new Maxim Fashion magazine everyone’s trying to get hold of yet, but I’d read that Kevin admits to past cocaine use in the interview and I asked someone who’d seen the article and apparently it’s true. I don’t know why it’s brought up in this article and I don’t know what he had to say about why he was even mentioning it now, but I could have happily gone the rest of my life without knowing Kevin Spacey was just another cokehead in the 80’s.

Kevin, you keep saying you don’t want to share your private life with the world, so why do you? I can only hope this means you’re going to start campaigning publicly against the life-threatening and life-altering dangers of drug abuse.

I’ve seen the Spacey cover of the magazine and *it* is great, in any case.

September Calendar I’ve been trying for months now to get my September calendar to work the way I want it to. The plan is to have a calendar with the upcoming Spacey events marked on it, but in order to do that with my program, I have to save the thing as a gif file instead of the usual jpg file and when I do that, the picture comes out blurry. If you can look at the page without your eyes watering from the blur, give it a try. I was going to work on it again tonight, but now I don’t feel like it. The new Spacey Gazette Headline should be ready to go on schedule Saturday morning.

Hottest Baldie Did all of you AOL users see AOL’s Hottest Baldie screen? Kevin isn’t on the list of baldies to vote for. He wins over Elton John any day!

Hollywood Reporter Aug. 30, 2001 Hoge’s ‘Leland’ at Trigger Street By Zorianna Kit Newcomer Matthew Ryan Hoge will direct “United States of Leland” for Kevin Spacey’s Trigger Street Prods. The project is in the process of being financed. Hoge also wrote the project, which is described as a heartfelt drama in the vein of “The Sweet Hereafter.” It’s about a 15-year-old boy, Leland, who murders an autistic child and claims that he committed the act out of sadness. The boy is sent to a juvenile facility, where a male teacher named Pearl must unravel the mystery behind Leland’s murderous act and sadness while at the same time deal with how the tragic killing affects the families of both the victim and the perpetrator. Hoge was inspired to write the screenplay after spending two years teaching at juvenile hall. “I’m thrilled to work with somebody I have boundless respect for,” Hoge said of Spacey. “It’s the best possible situation.” ~

Mark your calendars! From this morning’s Washington Post newspaper:

Pop Notes

All Their Loving: Lou Reed, Moby, Stone Temple Pilots and Nelly Furtado are among the artists who will gather Sept. 20 at Radio City Music Hall in New York to honor John Lennon. Actor Kevin Spacey will be emcee. The concert, a benefit for the Violence Policy Center and the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence united with the Million Mom March, will be shown on TNT Oct. 9.

Magazine cover Kevin is on the cover of the Fall/Winter issue of Maxim:Fashion – Thanks for the tip Bonnie *Includes a 6 page interview and some new photos.

Variety ad Kevin has placed a full page ad in the August 27 – September 2 issue of Variety. Page 81. It reads:

Congratulations to RON MEYER and STACEY SNIDER on becoming the Showmen of the Year! Thanks for letting me ride on your beam of light with both “K-PAX” and “The Life of David Gale”. You Are The Best, Kevin Spacey

Thanks for the tip Maddie.

August 27, 2001

Bobby Darin A&E is showing Bobby Darin on Biography this week. Check local listings for times. If you’re not familiar with Bobby Darin, this is a chance to see the man Kevin wants to portray in the movies.

Jason Robards I added a few pictures of Kevin and Jason Robards to the page which contains Kevin’s NY Times tribute to Mr. Robards. Thanks Kat and Kerry. Theatre section of the site.

August 26, 2001

Sorry Kev. Sadly, very few of Kevin’s fans think he could be a studly naked guy in the shower. I should have posted the In Style photo of Jackie Chan in the shower and put Kevin’s face on it instead of trying to pass off that buff, muscular guy as the spaceman. I tried, Kevin!

Movie chat for September 1 We’re going to watch LA Confidential on Saturday for our next movie chat.

August 25, 2001

KevinParadeParade, August 26, 2001 This picture of Kevin is in tomorrow’s Parade newspaper supplement. First page. It accompanies a question about Kevin doing the Bobby Darin biopic. Parade says he’s developing the script, fans might be surprised that he can sing like Darin (no, we wouldn’t), but the project is still far off and he’s just finished shooting The Shipping News with Dame Judi Dench.

August 24, 2001

Figures! Our sweet Kevin is finally showcased in an issue of In Style magazine in a pictorial called Men Before 10 (that means men in the morning) and they put someone else’s name on his picture!! I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s outraged by this. They claim it’s that guy named Vin Diesel, but it’s obvious from the way the water is cascading from his wrinkle-y elbows that this is in fact Kevin Spacey in the shower! Tell me if this text from the page doesn’t describe Kevin to a T:

When I first met Vin (Liss here. I guess Kevin goes by Vin now instead of Kev.) I was impressed with the power of his physique, but by the time I left I was touched by the gentleness of his soul. He plays tough, but inside has a big heart.

Also, I never knew Kevin had an outie belly button. They must have changed it digitally in American Beauty.

The picture is on page 279 of the new issue of In Style. Or you can find it on page 5 in the Photographs section of this site. Picture next to the candid photo of Kevin leaving an LA Starbucks last year.

If that’s not bad enough, Kevin’s not anywhere in the section called What’s Sexy Now. Mathew McConaughey was the winner in the category Sexiest Guy with White, Gray, Little or No Hair.

Mathew McConaughey!! It says he bested Sean Connery, Bruce Willis and Steve Martin among the follicularly special set. No mention at all of Kevin in that category. If there’s ever been a term that describes Kevin Spacey it has to be follicularly special.

August 23, 2001

American Beauty I added Kevin’s Oscar speech and an old interview to the AB section. I’ve been planning to add some of his many interviews from that year, but if you were around back then, I think you remember that they were pretty much all the same article. Kevin, Esquire, Dianne, Playboy, Lester Burnham, beauty, plastic bag in the breeze, TIC and subsidized tickets, trying to change his image, subterranean levels .. am I forgetting anything? Don’t think so. So I’m just going to add a couple of articles and interviews that some people may not have seen.

The Usual Suspects Don’t forget to bring your tape or DVD to the movie chat Saturday night! Spaceyland chat room at 9pm EST.

US Weekly, August 27, 2001 The Scene. Page 26, no picture.

New Spacey poll coming.

Spacey hair There’s a rumor going around that Kevin has changed his hair color to blond again. I don’t know if it’s for his next movie or what, but one of these mornings he’s going to wake up and all of his hair is going to be gone! Couldn’t the studio just pay for a decent wig? The man’s a 2 time Oscar winner for crying out loud.

If it’s not for a movie, but Kevin just wanted a change, maybe he should go check out the hair poll to see what people think is attractive on him.

August 20, 2001

cdm_405How did I miss this??  Kevin Spacey, dressed as a hamburger vs. Michael Caine dressed as a hotdog on MTV’s Celebrity Deathmatch! A Spacey fan saw this on TV last night. There’s a clip on the MTV website that I haven’t been able to load yet this morning. If anyone knows when this may repeat, let us know.

**link no longer works, maybe it’s on YouTube.

Thanks for the tip, Donna and Bonnie.

I won’t spoil the surprise and tell everybody who won, but there were some American Beauty jokes thrown in.

August 19, 2001

MTV Diary Kevin can be found on an MTV show called Diary. The episode he’s on follows Puff Daddy/P. Diddy around and Kevin’s on during the Puffy in Paris portion of the show. The last 10 minutes. I think it’s on a few times today. I saw it last night. Check your local listings.

Movie and a chat Next Saturday’s movie chat will showcase The Usual Suspects. Bring your movie and join us.

The Life of David Gale I have started a David Gale news updates page. Nothing fancy yet, but that’s where I’ll be putting any news as it comes along.

August 18, 2001

Entertainment Weekly, Fall Movie Preview issue Pictures from K-PAX and The Shipping News in the new issue of EW. Both pictures are on their respective site NEWS pages. As always, links can be found above.

Entertainment Weekly says the one of the things to look forward to with the new movie season is the return of actors who can act, and Kevin in his 2 new movies, is one of the actors listed.

The Life of David Gale 

Linney lured by Uni’s story of ‘David Gale’  Aug. 17, 2001  By Zorianna Kit           Laura Linney is in advanced negotiations to star opposite Kevin Spacey in Universal Pictures’ “Life of David Gale” for director Allan Parker. The project is slated to go into production in the fall.  “Life,” written by Charles Randolph, is a drama about a professor (Spacey) who advocates the abolition of capital punishment. When he is falsely accused and convicted of murdering his best friend and colleague, Constance Harraway (Linney), he finds himself on death row. He requests that a journalist interview him about the case, causing her to take up his case. Eventually, the discovery of the real circumstances of the crime is revealed. The studio has an offer out to Nicole Kidman for the role of the journalist. Nicholas Cage’s Intermedia-based Saturn Films, headed by Norm Golightly, initially set “Life” up as a pitch at Warner Bros. The project was then put in turnaround and acquired by Intermedia. Parker came aboard “Life” in fall 2000, and the project was subsequently set up at Universal, where Parker and his Dirty Hands Prods. have a first-look label relationship via the PolyGram acquisition (HR 10/30). “Gale” is now being produced by Intermedia, Saturn, Dirty Hands and Lisa Moran. Various high-profile actors had circled the project, including George Clooney, before Spacey decided last month to commit (HR 7/16). “We’re thrilled at the prospect of working with an actress of Laura’s caliber,” Golightly told The Hollywood Reporter. Linney, repped by ICM and Artists Management Group, earned her first best actress nomination this year for her performance in “You Can Count on Me.” She next stars in Screen Gems’ “The Mothman Prophecies” opposite Richard Gere and the Showtime feature “Wild Iris” opposite Gena Rowlands. Her credits include “The House of Mirth,” “The Truman Show” and “Primal Fear.”

Variety Posted: Thurs., Aug. 16, 2001, 10:00pm PT   Linney in talks for ‘Gale’ with Spacey, Parker to helm from script by Randolph   By CHARLES LYONS, JONATHAN BING   Laura Linney is in negotiations to star opposite Kevin Spacey in “The Life of David Gale” for Universal and Intermedia. Pic, to be directed by Alan Parker from a script by Charles Randolph, is about a professor opposed to the death penalty who winds up on death row after he’s convicted of murdering another death-penalty activist. Linney, who was nominated for an actress Oscar for “You Can Count on Me,” will play an anti-death penalty activist — one of two female leads in the film. The producers have been courting Nicole Kidman for the other role, but she has not committed to the part. Nicolas Cage’s Saturn Pictures is producing “Gale” with Parker’s Dirty Hands Prods. Pic is set to start shooting in Austin, Texas, in October. Linney, repped by ICM, completed the Mark Pellington pic “Mothman Prophecies” with Richard Gere in April. She most recently was seen in the Showtime pic “Wild Irises.”

Thank you, Maddie.

I have started a Jack Lemmon section. You can find it in the Theatre part of the site.

The Tuesday night chat was a bust as anyone who tried to log on last night knows. The chat rooms at NBCi weren’t working *again* but lo and behold, they’re working this morning. I’m hoping we’ll finally be able to get in on Saturday night.

August 14, 2001

K-PAX The official K-PAX website continues to add new things to their site, but there’s been no new Shipping News news.

Jack Lemmon Tribute Stars Turn Out for Lemmon Memorial By BOB THOMAS, Associated Press Writer LOS ANGELES (AP) – More than 500 friends and co-workers came to the Paramount Studios theater for a memorial to Jack Lemmon that turned out to be more like a Jack Lemmon comedy. Among the many warm memories shared Monday night about the two-time Oscar winner was one by Kevin Spacey, who appeared on stage with Lemmon in “Long Day’s Journey Into Night.” He recalled the time his dog relieved itself on the actor’s prized golf clubs. Comedy writer Larry Gelbart and playwright Neil Simon were also quick with a number of one-liners. Inadvertent comedian of the evening, however, was Tom Hanks, who somehow kept mistaking Jack Nicholson for Jack Lemmon. When he finished his haphazard speech, the evening’s emcee, PBS’ Charlie Rose, drew laughter when he said, “Thank you, Kevin.” Lemmon, who died June 27 of cancer, appeared on the theater’s screen in both comedy and dramatic roles: “Days of Wine and Roses,” “The Odd Couple,” “Some Like it Hot,” “Glengarry Glen Ross,” “The Fortune Cookie” and his final role, “Tuesday’s With Morrie.” All the while, the tributes flowed. “Hollywood has given no greater, or versatile, actor to the world than Jack Lemmon,” remarked Spacey. “It’s hard to believe that Jack is gone. So much of his energy is on the screen,” Simon said. Hank Azaria, who costarred with Lemmon in “Tuesdays With Morrie,” said of the actor: “He was the patron saint of acting without limits; the only boundary is the one you impose on yourself.” Lemmon’s son Chris thanked the audience for coming and told of his father’s last moments: “At the end I held him in my arms and all he was able to do was mouth the words, `I love you’ to his family,” he said. “He never complained  about his illness; he tried to make it easy on his loved ones.” Lemmon was 76.

K-PAX trailer It hurts to say this, but it’s been reported that in at least one theater in California, the new K-PAX trailer is being shown before .. American Pie 2!

Chat room The NBCi chat rooms have not been working the past 2 chat nights. Hopefully, the chat will be available again on Tuesday, our next scheduled chat night. We will attempt to have our TMOMP Part 2 chat next Saturday. The following week, I’m thinking we may watch The Usual Suspects or maybe Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. We’ll see.

August 10, 2001

Movie chat reminder For all of you that taped Mary Phagan last week, we’re going to be watching Part 2 tomorrow night on the movie chat. This will also give us time to talk about all the new K-PAX stuff on the Internet this week. As always, Spaceyland chat room, Saturday night, 9pm EST. All fans are welcome.

K-PAX The K-PAX press is getting into gear now. Lots of stuff happening. When you’re on the K-PAX News page, the small blue picture of Kevin near the top of the page will take you to the K-PAX section map.

August 9, 2001

A new page I added a new page to the site. It’s called Blast From The Past and is for old Spacey-related items on the web, magazines and TV. It has a slightly different theme than the rest of the site, to cool everyone off in the heat. It sorta fits in with the Spacey time machine. I just hope it doesn’t screw up the rest of the pages!

Happy Belated Birthday Inga! Kevin sends a great big kiss!

August 8, 2001

Premiere, Fall Movie Preview, September 2001 issue Fall movie previews are starting to show up in magazines now. In my new issue of Premiere, both K-PAX and The Shipping News are listed. I’ve put the basic information on the News pages for both movies and will type up the accompanying text later. One new picture from K-PAX is in the magazine. I haven’t read the magazine yet, so I don’t know if there is any other Spacey related stuff. Elijah Wood on the cover. *I completely missed a Shipping News photo.

Chicago Variety is reporting that Kevin has been offered the role of Billy Flynn in the motion picture version of Chicago, but there’s no word on if he has actually accepted, other than the news item on Entertainment Tonight a few weeks ago.

August 7, 2001

Something new at the official K-PAX web site. Click on my K-PAX news link above.

I have just returned from an overnight trip to New York City and while I was there, I took a tour of the new Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum. It’s a lot of fun, however Kevin is not there in wax or any other form, while Spacey movie co-stars Samuel L. Jackson, Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman have likenesses. What do we have to do, to get Kevin in there? ~

This next Spacey mention comes from Maddie:

The New York Post August 7, 2001 Neil Travis

Miracle on Ice 

WITH the epidemic of reality TV shows now raging, it will be interesting to see how Americans respond to the greatest survivor story ever told – the epic 635 days British explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton and his 28-man crew spent trapped in the Antarctic ice.

Director George Butler, who launched Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s career with “Pumping Iron,” has put together an amazing 92-minute documentary about Shackleton’s ordeal. (Butler already has a 31-minute IMAX version of the saga that’s been playing to packed houses at the Museum of Natural History all this year.)

The latest work, narrated by Kevin Spacey, will have its premiere and party at the museum late next month. The $1,000-a-head evening benefits Outward Bound and The Shackleton School, and will be hosted by Fergie‘s ex, Prince Andrew. That’s kind of appropriate, given that many Britons at the time thought Shackleton and the crew of the Endurance should have been contributing to the World War I effort instead of taking off on a dangerous adventure.

August 5, 2001

The Washington Post In my ongoing effort to record all Kevin Spacey press mentions, no matter how small or insignificant, I bring you this from this morning’s paper. In an article about Christopher Walken, the writer says: There’s a halting rhythm to his speech that has inspired countless impersonators, including, famously, Kevin Spacey and comedian Jay Mohr. Walken paces his words like this: It’s as, if, he’s . . . following. The punctuation rules, of another . . . galaxy.

And this didn’t mention Kevin but it did remind me of something Kevin said once:

Chris Walken, same Washington Post article:

Another major influence he claims is Bugs Bunny. “He’s so smart, he’s so funny, he’s got such a great attitude. Bugs Bunny is the spirit of New York.” Oh, really? “Well, yes. You can’t fool Bugs Bunny. That’s all I have to say. He’s on to everybody.”  Deadpan.

Kevin Spacey, Sunday Mail Interview, February 21,1999:

Some actors see Marlon Brando as their greatest inspiration.  For older actors, perhaps Laurence Olivier.  For younger ones, maybe Al Pacino. But not Kevin Spacey, the academy award winner who is this decade’s leading candidate for “actor’s actor”.  His choice is…Bug’s Bunny. “I’m a Saturday-morning-cartoon kid” the 39-year-old Spacey says. “I’m a Bugs Bunny kind of guy.  He gets away with everything.  He tweaks authority.  People know they can never really get mad with him.” That’s different.

Spacey Polls There’s a new Spacey poll. Kevin in wax, Spacey poll #21. I closed out 2 of the old polls, #17, The Weakest Link and #18, Mother’s Day. The results can still be found. The confirmation page pictures from those 2 polls can be found on the last page in the photograph section. All page URLs can be found on the site page links page.

Murder of Mary Phagan This 4 hour TV movie is going to be televised tomorrow (Saturday) evening on the Lifetime cable network. It’s from 6pm to 10pm EST. Check local listings for times in your area.

K-PAX Not much Spacey going on. There’s some talk of K-PAX in a magazine called My Generation, published by AARP. Jeff Bridges is on the cover and some people on his his site guest book have said they plan to see the movie after reading his interview. I’ll tell you more later.

Movie chat update Murder of Mary Phagan: Part 1 is scheduled for this week’s chat at Spaceyland. Saturday night, August 4th at 9pm EST.

July 31, 2001

The Spacey Gazette I moved the Spacey birthday card to the Spacey Gazette front page headlines page and will add a new headline soon.

July 29, 2001

Movie and a chat We’re going to watch something we have never watched on the chat before. The Murder of Mary Phagan. This is based on a true story and since it’s 4 hours, we’re going to show it in 2 parts. Part 1 will be on Saturday, August 4th and part 2 will be the following Saturday.

July 27, 2001

Bizarre Spacey moment It’s no secret to anyone that I found American Beauty to be highly over-rated, right? At lunch today I opened a fortune cookie that came with some Chinese food and found a Spacey message. I put a scan of it on the American Beauty main page.

I’d take this as a sign that I can’t get away from this movie no matter how hard I try but my horoscope in the New York Post on Tuesday said that I seem to believe that fate is picking on me personally, for no good reason, and that this only goes to show how out of touch with reality I’ve become.

I’m going to take it as a sign that it’s time to add some stuff to the AB section. I’ll check out the massive AB scrapbook I have and see what needs to be scanned next.

Special Spacey Birthday Salute: TV chat reminder Find your tapes of Kevin’s 60 Minutes and Actors Studio interviews for the chat tomorrow night. If you don’t have the interviews, stop by anyway and we’ll describe everything to you. Spaceyland chat room, 9pm on Saturday night, July 28.

If you’re out there Kevin, Happy Birthday!

In Style, Man of Style: Whose style do you admire most?

Freddie Prinze Jr.: I dig what George Clooney wears. He’s very much the chill guy. And Kevin Spacey is smooth. I think he’s got phenomenal taste.

In Style, August 2001 issue, Hilary Swank on the cover, Spacey mention on page 170, no picture of Kevin.

July 25, 2001

From Entertainment Tonight:

July 24, 2001 | RENÉE ZELLWEGER is in talks to join CATHERINE ZETA-JONES and KEVIN SPACEY in the movie version of the BOB FOSSE musical, Chicago. KATHY BATES is also on board for the adaptation executive produced by CRAIG ZADAN and NEIL MERON, the team responsible for recent musical TV hits “Annie” and “Life with Judy Garland: Me and My Shadows.” Jones, who began her career in musical theater, will play Velma – the role originated by CHITA RIVERA in 1977.

I have a feeling we’re never going to see Kevin in a small budget, just for the story movie again. Looks like he’s studio budget/big name co-stars all the way now. I was afraid of that.

Variety A picture of Kevin at a screening of Apocolypse Now Redux is in the photos section. Thanks Maddie!

Parties Kevin also attended a 10th anniversary party for Rob Lowe and his wife Sheryl on Sunday.

The Star Kevin’s in the tabloids again. This time in pictures from the Versace party, with Naomi Campbell.

Photos More coming to the site this week.

Hickeys for Hickey It’s now been almost 2 months since the Tony Awards and fans are still offering to give Kevin a hickey to help ease the pain of losing the Tony 2 years ago. Kevin has the most thoughtful fans. It’s bringing a tear to my eye.

July 23, 2001

Zapworld I came across an article about scooters on the web yesterday and there was Kevin’s name. For everyone who wondered if Kevin was a Zappy stockholder, here’s the Spacey-related part of the article:

Friday, July 21, 2000 Scooting Along by Shona Crabtree Eagle-Tribune writer

<snip>

Scooter popularity has been boosted by media reports and celebrity sightings. Last summer, actor Kevin Spacey of “American Beauty” fame rode onto the David Letterman Show with a Zappy, Mr. Campbell said. He maintained the company did not know about it until it happened.

“You couldn’t pay Kevin Spacey to do that kind of stuff,” he laughed. “We couldn’t afford it.”

Still, Mr. Spacey’s free plug has sparked sales in New York where Zapworld sells “thousands” of scooters.

“It created a whole scene,” Mr. Campbell said. “People actually go nightclubbing on these scooters.”

SPACEY CADET Young Kevin does Crime Entertainment Weekly, July 27, 2001, issue #606, picture on page 55. Madonna on the cover.

There’s an article about the Crime Story reruns on A&E in the new issue of EW. The only mention of Kevin is near the end when it’s said he’s one of the actors to look for in future episodes. Plus, there’s a new “old” picture of him, at least I think it’s new. From his episode. I scanned it and enlarged it so I hope it’s clear enough to see. Picture is on the first page of photos in the photographs section. Kevin and a woman in a purple dress.

Kevin Spacey and Warren Beatty Read for Coppola’s ‘Megalopolis’ July 17, 2001

NEW YORK (Zap2it.com) – Director Francis Ford Coppola (“The Godfather”) held readings of his long-gestating, hotly-anticipated script “Megalopolis” in New York City, reports Variety.

The famous helmer scored some major talent to participate, including Kevin Spacey, Parker Posey and Warren Beatty.

“Megalopolis,” reportedly similar to Ayn Rand’s novel The Fountainhead, concerns a real estate entrepreneur who wants to construct the title building out of new and cheap advanced plastic compound and the well-liked New York mayor who is out to stop him.

Coppola is rumored to have written the part of the mayor specifically for Beatty.

Is this a way of auditioning for a role in the movie?

The Hollywood Reporter.com: 

Spacey given death sentence in ‘David Gale’ by Zorianna Kit

July 16, 2001 Two-time Oscar-winning actor Kevin Spacey is in final negotiations to star in the title role of Universal Pictures/Intermedia Films’ “The Life of David Gale” for director Alan Parker. Production is slated to begin in mid-September with actor Nicolas Cage’s Intermedia-based Saturn Films producing. The project reteams Spacey with Universal, which is distributing the actor’s upcoming feature “K-Pax,” in which he stars opposite Jeff Bridges for director Iain Softley. “Gale,” written by Charles Randolph, is a drama about a professor (Spacey) who advocates the abolition of capital punishment. When he is falsely accused and convicted of murdering an activist, he finds himself on death row.

July 15, 2001

Spacey movie chat The movie for Saturday night’s movie chat is Glengarry Glen Ross. A small Spacey fan tribute to Kevin’s “pop”, Jack Lemmon.

Kevin’s hair poll I added some new choices to the hair poll.

Site changes I made some changes to pages.In Theaters Now! is gone and is now simply the PIF main page. K-PAX has replaced that as Coming Attractions. In a few months I’ll change K-PAX to an In Theaters Now! page and make Shipping News the Coming Attractions page. The Shipping News will remain the Movie of the Month until I have time to work on one of the other movies. Is everyone following that? If I did everything right, all the new pages should work. Check the MAP or the Site page Links pages for new URLs.

Kevin in a new project? Can anyone give us more information about this? One of Kevin’s Scottish fans spotted this in today’s Daily Mail: 

Kevin is going to star in an Alan Parker project called The Life of David Gale. George Clooney is reported to have backed out. It is the story of a reporter investigating the case of an anti-capital punishment activist sentenced to death for a murder he may not have committed. Nicole Kidman is in talks to co-star.

Versace party There’s a picture of Kevin and Naomi Campbell at the Versace party in the newest issue of US Weekly. I don’t have the magazine yet so I don’t know what page it’s on. The July 23, 2001 issue.

Kevin at memorial service I put a picture of Kevin and Judi Dench at the Michael Williams service on the TSN articles page and the TSN photos page. There is a link to photos of other attendees on the TSN news page. Thanks again, Meg.

Kevin’s Hair poll Kevin’s hair continues to be one of the favorite Spacey features his fans enjoy voting on the most. His chest hair fans are winning over the non-chest hair fans by 98 votes. His receding hairline gets a big thumbs up and the bald spot has more fans than the attempts to cover it. We’re divided on how he should comb the combover, but I’ll admit *my* favorite is when it forms the peak. We’re also divided on the color issue. Does he have any idea of how important his hair is to his career? I may have to add his  orange Quoyle hair to the poll.

Movie and a chat Due to unforeseen problems last Saturday, namely people not having the movie and several of Kevin’s fans having health problems to contend with, we decided to postpone the Hurlyburly movie chat until the coming weekend. So that will be Hurlyburly on Saturday night, July 14 at 9pm EST at the Spaceyland chat room. Bring your movie and we’ll talk about yak hair for a while.

Kevin at Versace runway show I added the picture of Kevin at the Versace show to the first page of the Photographs section.

I’ve been trying to catch up on everything I fell behind on while I was recovering from my allergic reaction to poison ivy and I’m having all sorts of problems with my picture program.

When I was trying to re-save the Versace photo from a bitmap file to a jpg file, it would only allow me to save the file with supermodel Naomi Campbell cropped from the photo. Go figure! She was sitting next to Kevin. However, her jewelry made it into the final picture. She was looking very supermodel-ish so you can use your imagination. Kevin was looking handsome as usual, as he always does when wearing a dark suit.

Kevin in London Kevin crammed a lot into his trip to Europe. He also attended a memorial service for Michael Williams, the late husband of TSN co-star Judi Dench. Check out the TSN Articles page. Thanks for the tip, Meg.

Kevin’s birthday Kevin’s 42nd birthday is in a few short weeks. I was going to do something similar to the Valentine card from the fans using the site, but the poison ivy thing just took everything out of me and now it’s too late. If anyone wants to send him a card or something, I would suggest using the William Morris address we’ve been given over the years:

Kevin Spacey c/o William Morris Agency 151 El Camino Drive Beverly Hills, CA 90212 USA

Spacey sightings No new Spacey sightings in Europe the past few days. You can catch a glimpse of Kevin on E! News Daily today. He’s shown arriving at the Versace fashion show and sitting in the front row. He’s wearing his usual dark suit. When I read he had attended a Versace show, I was suddenly picturing him trying to look young and “hip” by wearing fluorescent green satin pants with a see-through shirt. I never want to see that.

Spacey poll #21 I’m working on a new Spacey poll. As soon as I find just the right picture for the confirmation page, I’ll throw it onto the site.

July 7, 2001

Now Kevin’s in Paris! He was seen squiring Naomi Campbell to clothing designer Donatella Versace’s runway show.

Kevin, stop this celeb stuff and go home right now! You still have fan mail to answer. None of us are getting any younger waiting by the mailbox, you know.

The man never sleeps:

Elton John’s Bash Raises AIDS Funds LONDON (AP) – Elton John said Friday that his annual celebrity-studded house party raised $1.4 million for an AIDS charity. One anonymous guest at the White Tie And Tiara Ball – held Thursday at John’s mansion in Windsor, west of London – donated $420,000 to the Elton John AIDS Foundation. An auction raised another $280,000, with Oscar-winning actor Kevin Spacey paying $120,000 for a classic Mini Cooper. Other guests at the fete included actress Kate Winslet, models Naomi Campbell and Elle Macpherson, the Duchess of York and soccer star David Beckham and his wife, Spice Girl Victoria Beckham. “I am completely bowled over at the amount raised and would like to thank everyone for making this possible,” John said. “It was a great party and it’s so fantastic to know that the monies raised are already committed to international projects helping people affected by HIV and AIDS.” The charity funds direct care and preventative services around the world. Copyright 2001 The Associated Press.

I suggest we take up a collection to buy Kevin a place to live for his birthday. It’s obvious now that he has no home and just goes from function to function to keep busy. He keeps Mini in his backpack between airplane flights. He was in LA a week ago:

Hollywood Bowl Opening Night Gala (Hollywood Bowl, 17,900 seats, top ticket $75) Los Angeles Philharmonic Association presents the Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame Opening-Night Gala, with the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra conducted by John Mauceri. Hall-of-Fame Reviewed June 29, 2001. Time 2 HOURS, 30 MINUTES. Honorees: Marilyn Horne, John & Bonnie Raitt, Stevie Wonder, Monty Python (with Eric Idle).

Guests: Kevin Spacey, Jeff Bridges, Constance Towers, Robin Williams, John Williams, Smokey Robinson.

By ALAN RICH

With the usual fund of delights, contradictions and razzle-dazzle, the L.A. Philharmonic’s summertime playground welcomed a large and cheerful crowd to start off its 80th consecutive season. As conductor/raconteur John Mauceri pointed out, the Philharmonic had ended its first-ever Bowl concert in 1922 with the familiar finale from Rossini’s “William Tell” Overture; it was appropriate, therefore, to end this anniversary event with the same music. This time, however, the fireworks were visible as well as audible. Celebrations demand celebrities; this occasion had both in full measure. Five of the latter were inducted into the “second annual Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame”: operatic superstar Marilyn Horne, madcap comic troupe of fond memory Monty Python (represented by former member Eric Idle), singers Bonnie Raitt and her father John and the phenomenal, one-of-a-kind Stevie Wonder. With each honoree came a nicely concocted film montage of former performances, followed by live turns to suggest that the glory remains.

Memories, memories: diva Horne delivering an “Over the Rainbow” with Wagnerian intensity; the Raitts, father-and-daughter, transcending the generation gap with duets from “Annie Get Your Gun”; Pythoneer Idle concocting new routines with Robin Williams; Stevie Wonder shaking the heavens to the point where the ensuing fireworks almost seemed anticlimactic.

At the start, Hollywood’s Kevin Spacey faced the high-spending diners down front, and the picnickers in the $15 benches several miles uphill, and properly described the event as the “true surround sound.”

Following another week of lightweight holiday programming, the Bowl offerings turn substantial with a full-length “Aida” on July 8, the Tuesday/Thursday classical programming — starting with operatic mezzo-soprano Susanne Mentzer — on the 10th and a kickoff of the Wednesday jazz series a day later. The cornucopia remains lavish, six nights a week, until mid-September.

Above all, this gala opener served to epitomize the something-for-everybody programming that makes the Bowl unique among summertime musical offerings anywhere in the world.

Pins I’ve been trying to find out where people can buy those Declaration of Independence pins the actors were wearing last night. I noticed Kevin was wearing one. They were being shown during Good Morning America yesterday morning. So far I haven’t had any luck tracking down a source for the pins, so if anyone knows where they can be purchased, please drop me a line. You can send me an email at the site email addy or use the site feedback form.

Kevin was dressed well and read his part of the Declaration of Independence like the pro he is. Next year, I’d like to see him doing a song and dance number at the A Capitol Fourth celebration in Washington, DC. That’s the one shown on PBS. If you missed that last night, the performers did their numbers in the rain. The Pointer Sisters were caught in a near torrential downpour, but the show went on as planned.

SAG strike Looks like there will be no actors strike in Hollywood after all.

TV GUIDE Don’t forget to pick up a copy of next week’s TV Guide. If you missed it, I put the picture of Kevin on the first page of photos in the Photographs section.

Saturday night movie and a chat This week’s movie will be Hurly Burly. As an added bonus, everyone who comes to the chat will get an update on my poison ivy blisters, itching, and the redness everywhere from the allergic reaction I had from the poison ivy. The rash, swollen eye and face thing is gone now, but I can describe it to anyone who missed that last week. I can also tell you that all the good looking men work for my local fire and rescue squad. I saw several while I was in the ER waiting for the doctor who hasn’t graduated yet to treat me. They all seemed to have some kind of John Doe shaved head thing going on.

Saturday night, 9pm EST, Spaceyland chat room.

July 3, 2001

I’ve been trying to recover from a very bad allergic reaction to poison ivy for the past 6 days, so there hasn’t been much in the way of updates and I wasn’t able to put together my patriotic tribute to Kevin’s chest hair for the July 4th celebration as I had promised (maybe for his birthday), but I can tell you a few things.

Philadelphia Museum of Art In spite of a few changes in the line-up, the Washington Post this morning still has Kevin appearing tomorrow night on the ABC special about the Declaration of Independence.

Crime Story An old TV series that Kevin made an appearance on is going to be shown on A&E this summer, starting next week. I’m not sure when they’re going to show his episode. There’s supposed to be a picture of Kevin in the TV Guide for next week. July 7 issue, Passions cover, page 4. Picture.

Spacey movie chat We’re still going to watch Consenting Adults tomorrow night, but will schedule the Kevin Spacey/Jack Lemmon Glengarry Glen Ross for the movie within the next few weeks. As always, Saturday night, 9pm EST, Spaceyland chat room.

Here’s an old interview between Kevin and Jack Lemmon from last year.

June 28, 2001

Very sad news today Spacey fans. The amazing Jack Lemmon, who Kevin has said is like “his pop” has died. This is from the Washington Post.

Oscar Winning Actor Jack Lemmon Dies The Associated Press Thursday, June 28, 2001; 4:51 AM

LOS ANGELES –– Jack Lemmon, the two-time Oscar winner whose acting talents ranged from the adroit comedy of “The Apartment” and “Some Like It Hot” to the dramatic intensity of “Days of Wine and Roses” and “Tuesdays with Morrie,” has died at the age of 76.

Lemmon died Wednesday at about 10 p.m. from complications related to cancer, said longtime spokesman Warren Cowan. His wife, Felicia and two of his children were at his bedside at USC/Norris Cancer Clinic, Cowan said.

“He is one of the greatest actors in the history of the business,” Cowan said. “To say one word about him would be beautiful. It’s an opinion that is shared by everybody who knew him.”

The Harvard-educated actor began in films with two stylish comedies and a musical with Betty Grable. Then in 1955, he showed his unique comedy style as the hapless Ensign Pulver in “Mister Roberts,” a role that won Lemmon an Oscar as supporting actor.

Throughout his career, and especially in films with Walter Matthau, Lemmon was often cast as the well-meaning fellow, a trifle square, who is taken advantage of by more forceful individuals.

In “The Fortune Cookie,” he is browbeaten into filing a false insurance claim by his brother-in-law. “The Odd Couple” portrayed Lemmon as the fastidious Felix Unger, who suffers from the slobbish habits of his roommate, Oscar Madison (Matthau). In “The Front Page,” city editor Matthau tricks his star reporter, Lemmon.

In 1962, Lemmon made a complete switch from his string of lighthearted comedies. In “Days of Wine and Roses,” he played an alcoholic who induces his new wife (Lee Remick) to join him in drinking sprees. His intense performance surprised critics and audiences and brought his first Academy nomination as lead actor.

Of his seven Oscar nominations for lead actor, two were for comedies, five for dramas.

“Save the Tiger,” in which he played a dress manufacturer going along with shady business ethics despite the idealism of his youth, won him the Oscar for best actor of 1973. The hard-bitten project was rejected by studios until Paramount agreed to make it on a skimpy $1-million budget. Lemmon cut his salary to the guild minimum of $165 a week, plus a percentage of gross receipts.

Lemmon’s comedic style was based on his portrayal of a well-meaning Everyman beset by disasters, both natural and unnatural. Such a guise seemed to come easily to him, since he was a self-proclaimed klutz.

His life, he often admitted, was a series of faux pas. He cited the night he won his first Oscar:

“Naturally I was thrilled, and I arrived at the Pantages Theater in my best tuxedo. I walked up a ramp to a platform for an interview, and I leaned against a railing. Only after I finished did I see a sign that said ‘Fresh Paint.’ So when I went up on the stage to accept my Oscar, I had this white streak across the back of my tuxedo.”

Lemmon’s roles reflected a kind of nervous energy that came naturally.

“I seldom think that I’m up for a good role,” he admitted in a 1975 interview. “I nearly walked out on ‘Days of Wine and Roses’ and ‘Some Like It Hot’ because I didn’t think I could handle the demands they made upon me as an actor. But if you think I’m insecure now, you should’ve seen me when I was first breaking in. I’d suffer dizzy spells. I was well on my way to becoming a basket case.”

Lemmon’s career in film was marked by two inspired collaborations, with Billy Wilder and Walter Matthau.

Wilder first directed Lemmon in “Some Like It Hot” and “The Apartment,” which resulted in back-to-back Oscar nominations for the actor. They joined in five more films: “Irma La Douce,” “The Fortune Cookie,” “Avanti!” “The Front Page” and “Buddy Buddy.”

From his first film with Matthau, “The Fortune Cookie” in 1966, Lemmon’s fresh-faced, Ivy-League manner proved a perfect match for the slouching, gruff Matthau, who won the supporting actor Oscar for his role.

“The Odd Couple” in 1968 cemented their relationship, and they costarred in six more films.

In his sole venture as a film director, Lemmon directed but did not appear in the 1971 “Kotch.” Matthau’s role as a grumbling old-timer brought him an Academy nomination. Matthau died on July 1, 2000, of a heart attack.

Lemmon returned to Broadway in 1985 for a well-received revival of Eugene O’Neil’s “Long Day’s Journey into Night.” He remained active in films and television through the 1990s.

In 1993, he and Matthau rejoined for “Grumpy Old Men” with Sophia Loren and Ann-Margret. The comedy became a surprise hit and resulted in a sequel. The pair tried another sequel in 1998, “The Odd Couple II,” but it failed.

Lemmon also played cameo roles in such films as “JFK,” “The Player,” “The Grass Harp” and “Hamlet.”

Television provided Lemmon’s best roles in his mature years. He and George C. Scott appeared in acclaimed versions of “Inherit the Wind” and “12 Angry Men.” As the dying professor in the 2000 TV adaptation of the long-running best seller “Tuesdays with Morrie,” Lemmon gave one of his finest performances, earning an Emmy.

Summing up his career in 1989, he commented: “Ever since I got into live TV in my late 20s, there has never been a serious drop when I’d have to make a comeback. We all make bad films. (The producers) misjudge, and you misjudge. That happens more often than the hits.

“But I have been able to get films that have worked, not only at the box office, but critically and with the public, often enough so that I’m still around. I can still get wonderful parts, thank God.”

Lemmon’s mishaps began at birth. He was born Feb. 8, 1925, in an elevator at a Newton, Mass., hospital. He had a case of jaundice, prompting a nurse to comment, “My, look at the little yellow Lemmon.” His name: John Uhler Lemmon III.

His father owned a bakery business, and young Jack was brought up in comfortable circumstances. He made his acting debut at 4 in an amateur play, but his real passion was music, and he taught himself to play piano. Even though he wrote more than 400 songs in his lifetime, he never learned to read music.

Jack was a sickly boy who required 13 operations before he was 13 (some credit that experience for the quirky posture that was part of his comedic style). To build himself up, he trained in the gym at Andover prep school and became a fleet runner. At Harvard, his grades were modest except in drama. He became president of the famed Hasty Pudding Club and staged shows that reinforced his growing ambition to become an actor.

When he returned from Navy service as an ensign in World War II, Lemmon announced to his father his resolve to become an actor.

“I’ll have to try it or all my life I’ll wonder,” he said. “Do you really love it?” his father asked. When Jack replied yes, his father said, “That’s good, because the day I don’t find romance in a loaf of bread, I’m going to quit.”

With $300 from his father, Lemmon moved to New York, where he and friends ended up sleeping in an abandoned building. One morning, they awoke to a wrecking ball and barely escaped without their belongings.

Between acting jobs, Lemmon earned a few dollars playing piano in a saloon. His first break came with a role on a radio soap opera, “The Brighter Day.”

By 1947, television drama was burgeoning, and he began working on shows such as “Studio One.” His first Broadway play, a revival of “Room Service,” lasted only two weeks but it provided a ticket to Hollywood. A Columbia Pictures scout saw him and recommended a test for the lead opposite Judy Holliday in “It Should Happen to You.” Studio boss Harry Cohn agreed to the casting.

Cohn, epitome of the bombastic studio chief, insisted on changing his new actor’s name. He argued critics would use the name as a weapon, declaring the picture and the actor were lemons. He spelled out the new name L-E-N-N-O-N and pronounced it.

“Great!” countered Lemmon. “Just like Lenin the Russian. They’ll say I’m a commie.”

Lemmon stood his ground. He had gone through school being taunted with cries of “Jack, you lemon,” and wasn’t going to change it. Strangely, his intransigence led to a warm relationship with Cohn, who respected only those employees who challenged him.

After another comedy with Judy Holliday, “Phffft,” and a musical, Lemmon was loaned to Warner Bros. for the film that established his movie career, “Mister Roberts.”

During his early Hollywood years, he often took to drink to calm his nervousness. He claimed never to have been an alcoholic, and on his 50th birthday in 1975, he quit alcohol entirely, believing it was hampering his energy.

Lemmon was married from 1950 to 1956 to actress Cynthia Stone; their son, Chris, was born in 1954. In 1962, he married actress Felicia Farr; their daughter, Courtney, was born in 1966.

Spacey news lazily swiped from other Spacey sites:

Variety ABC fires off July 4 ‘Independence’ spec Lear to produce dramatic reading of Declaration by stars By PAULA BERNSTEIN Hoping to woo viewers on a traditionally low-rated night, ABC will broadcast “Independence Day 2001,” a live special co-hosted by ABC News’ Diane Sawyer and Charles Gibson, on July 4. The one-hour event, to air at 10 p.m. ET (in lieu of an episode of “The Beast”), will feature a dramatic reading of the Declaration of Independence by a cavalcade of Hollywood stars, including Michael Douglas, Morgan Freeman, Mel Gibson, Whoopi Goldberg, Kathy Bates, Edward Norton, Kevin Spacey and Catherine Zeta-Jones. Norman Lear, who recently acquired an original copy of the Declaration of Independence, will produce the dramatic reading, which will be the centerpiece of the ABC News special. Live from Philadelphia, the show will also feature a performance by Garth Brooks, as well as highlights of various Independence Day celebrations from each of the 13 original colonies. New York Post Photo of Kevin in today’s issue of the New York Post. “Actor Kevin Spacey joins a friend for lunch yesterday near his old Juilliard stomping grounds, on 63rd and Broadway. After ordering, the actor picked up his pal’s camera, aimed it at the paparazzi across the street and “fired back” a few shots at the fotogs.”

June 18, 2001

No movie chat last night after all. The chat room was not working. I don’t know yet if ATTK will be rescheduled for next week. We’ll see.

June 14, 2001

Movie chat I forgot to post the movie chat for Saturday night. I *think* it’s A Time To Kill. There was some discussion but I don’t know if anything was ever agreed upon, so let’s say it’s ATTK. Saturday night, June 16, 9pm EST Spaceyland chatroom.

Bobby Darin movie rumors update: “Kevin Spacey must have been a beautiful baby .. ”  on the Upcoming Projects page.

There’s a new review of Pay It Forward on the PIF fan reviews page.

I’ve been on vacation this week and have been away from my scanner, *but* … if I have the time this weekend, stay tuned for some very special Spacey scans. The one you’ve all been waiting for … the photos of my pens Kevin used to sign my TIC things. This includes the gold metallic ink pen and the black Sharpie with the actual ink smudges made by Kevin Spacey’s actual hand! I know you’ve been holding your breath waiting for that one.

And a very special picture showing Hopper wearing the latest in Shipping News fashions!

Concert for Tibet Remember the concert benefit for Tibet that Kevin attended a while back? A Spacey fan has tipped me off to a photo URL for Kevin and David Bowie, which you may or may not have seen before:

http://www.bowiewonderworld.com/images/photos/00s/tibet/tibet14.jpg

And there was this David Bowie fan comment:

“One celeb that I haven’t seen anyone note was Kevin Spacey, rushing down the aisle after the show concluded in a black wool hat and his very best ratty overcoat, apparently urgently heading to the backstage area. Funny, earlier in the day he was dapper and be-suited at a memorial for Jason Robards. I guess he didn’t want to be too star-like at Carnegie. He rushed right past Emmylou’s mom, and wasn’t recognized by many people.” rancell

Thanks, Tamara

Movie rumor There’s a story going around that Kevin may be cast in a new movie version of Inherit The Wind.

The Iceman Cometh – Kevin’s Iceman co-star, Robert Sean Leonard, won a Tony Award last night. Congratulations to him.

Millionaire – Kevin was a fast finger question last night on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?. The contestants had to list actors in order by the year of their birth, starting with the most recent (I think). Kevin was born before Lucy Liu and after Susan Sarandon and I can’t remember who the first celebrity listed was.

June 3, 2001

I’ve added some things to the Broadway Iceman Cometh pages. These pages include the cover and Spacey pictures from the 1999 Tony Award PLAYBILL and some other pictures from magazines of Kevin and others at various awards shows relating to TIC. I added a paragraph to the last Iceman Odds & Ends page and pictures of some of my TIC souvenirs. You can find these on the TIC map page or you can find specific pages using the new Site Page Links page. More coming as I can find the time.

Where’s Kevin? There hasn’t been any news or sightings of the man lately. Have they returned to Halifax to finish filming The Shipping News yet?

May 30, 2001

New poll! A hickey for Hickey! I found an absolutely gorgeous picture of Kevin with lots of body hair for the confirmation page!

The URL for the Spacey Polls main page will change on Friday morning but I’m not going to change the URLs for the individual polls just yet. There are too many!

May 28,2001

No Spacey news this morning.

I’ve been working on the site this morning. There’s a new confirmation picture for Spacey poll #1 and Spacey poll #13.

I’ve got most of the theatre pages renamed and am working on TIC for Broadway in honor of the Tonys on Sunday. That’s going to be my focus on site work this week.

I’m getting closer to having all the site pages completely renamed and listed on the Site Links Page.

May 27, 2001

Photographs I renamed all the photos pages and added a new photographs section enter page. Plus I added some new pictures and rearranged some of the others. Click here.

The Shipping News A week or so ago, I discovered something odd. When you clicked on the main Shipping News page link, it took you to the entrance to that section, but there was no link to get you into the Shipping News from there. So I added an enter link which takes you to the new map page for TSN. If you have sound on your computer, there’s a little something extra since it’s the Movie of the Month (for quite a while). Click here.

New TV Chats To keep things fresh, we’re going to try something new. We’re going to watch some of Kevin’s old TV appearances. These are only an hour long, so even if you don’t have the shows taped, you can drop by and not have to sit for long periods why we discuss long movies. Click here.

May 26, 2001

No Spacey sighting today, but there’s a new TSN article about the filming of the movie on the TSN News articles page.

Movie chat No movie scheduled for tonight. Just a general Spacey chat. We may be trying something new for the chat next week. Spacey TV chat!

TSN NEWS hits I was not thinking! When I renamed the TSN NEWS page yesterday, there were 972 hits on that page! So close to one thousand. When I renamed the page, it wiped out the counter and so far my efforts to reset it have failed. Someone would have hit that this weekend. So there’s now going to be a small message beneath the counter.

Se7en I’ve added all the Se7en email pages to the list of pages that have been renamed. On the Site Page Links page I also listed which of those have WAVs. Anyone who wasn’t around several months ago, there was a promotion for the DVD release that had the police wanting you to help them solve the John Doe murders and suddenly you find yourself on the receiving end of some bizarre ramblings by John Doe.

The Iceman Cometh I’ve added many pages to the Site Page Links now. Many more to go. In honor of the upcoming Tony Awards, I’ll start on all the theater pages next. And if I have some free time, I’ll finish the TIC Broadway section. Still have a ways to go on that one.

There’s a new addy for the main The Shipping News.

I renamed some of the other TSN pages this morning. You can find them using either the TSN map (also renamed) or by using the new Site Page Links page. I’ll be changing the URL for the TSN news tonight.

American Beauty Spoof! I just saw the funniest spoof of AB yet. There’s a new commercial for CBS’ hit show “King Of Queens”. The slightly overweight husband, who’s name escapes me at the moment, is laying on a bed of roses as more roses float down from the ceiling. Suddenly a large mass of flowers lands on him and and the wife comes over to the bed, looks at the ceiling and says “We’re gonna have to get that fixed.” Then they show a close-up of the husband’s hand clutching one red rose to his large, bare, hairy stomach. Very funny!

Spacey Domain Lawsuit This is interesting. The man that Kevin was suing because Kevin said he was fraudulently using Kevin’s name to sell merchandise on a website using the domain KevinSpacey.com has suddenly put up a Kevin Spacey fan website at that addy. Wonder what this means in regards to Kevin’s suit?

Strange but true fan story:

Saturday morning, one of our anonymous fellow Spacey fans, secret Spacey code name NEVER LATE FOR DINNER, went to her local California Blockbuster to rent Pay It Forward for the night’s movie chat. Her excitement turned to panic when she found herself facing a wall of empty PIF boxes but no tapes!! After calming herself, she noticed a small sign that said the tapes were available up at the check-out counter. She begged the clerk at the counter for information.

Anonymous fan: “Where are you hiding my Kevin?!?”

Clerk who’s seen it all#1: “Relax ma’am. He’s behind the counter. We have plenty of PIF for everyone.”

Anonymous fan: “Why is Pay It Forward behind the counter instead of out on the shelves where all can grab it??”

Clerk who’s seen it all #2: “Security ma’am. Pay It Forward has been designated a high-risk-for-theft video.”

Anonymous fan: “Uh … HaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHa!”

More Spacey conversation follows between clerks and fan which culminates in clerks telling fan she needs to go home and take a cold shower.

A few days later, fan sends email to Blockbuster asking why PIF is high risk video. I’ll continue *that* story later.

Metro Food Bank Auction What time zone is AST? It’s Canadian. There’s an auction for a Kevin Spacey director’s chair at this link:

**Link no longer works

The page says they’re accepting bids until 7pm AST, May 22, 2001 – today! If AST is not the equivalent of EST, you may have time to bid.

Pay It Forward video review:

THE NEW YORK TIMES May 18, 2001 by Peter M. Nichols Pay It Forward Young Trevor (Haley Joel Osment) has the idea: do a good turn for three people, who will do one for three others, and so on. When a cynical reporter (Jay Mohr) profits from such a favor — a stranger suddenly gives him a brand new automobile — he tracks the notion back to Trevor, the boy’s harried mother (Helen Hunt) and the troubled junior high school teacher (Kevin Spacey), a terse man with a burn-scarred face, who helped Trevor nourish the idea at the start. Unfortunately, plausibility vanishes in a film “so enamored of its own upbeat view of human nature that it expects you to overlook its stick-figure characters, its creaky plot machinery and its remorseless assault on your tear ducts” (A. O. Scott). 2000. Warner. $107.37; DVD, $26.98. 122 minutes. Closed captioned. PG-13.  Copyright 2001 The New York Times Company

No new Spacey News today.

More page name changes: I have added a new page to the MAP page. It’s called Site Page Links. It’s a list of all the pages that have so far been named or renamed to make them easier to find by typing in URLs. I have added to this morning’s list of pages the Guest Book (hopefully renaming the page won’t wipe it out again), Missing In Action, Upcoming Projects and The Usual Suspects.

Tomorrow night or Wednesday morning I’m going to rename the Albino Alligator and Bug’s Life pages. On Thursday you’ll find new URLs for the L.A. Confidential pages. On Friday I am going to rename the Shipping News and the main Spacey polls pages. I’m going to leave the separate polls pages for now. Too many of them to work with.

On the weekend I’ll rename the rest of the movie pages I have finished so far. I’ll add all of these pages to the Site page links as I finish them. Any pages you have bookmarked will need to be re-marked after the page names have been changed. Sorry for the inconvenience but this will make the site easier to use. I hope. One of these days I’m going to separate the site news from the Spacey news. Probably after I finish renaming everything!

Site changes: I changed the addy for the Spacey Movies link. If you had it bookmarked, you’ll need to go to the main map to find it or you can change the address you saved.

I also changed all the American Beauty page URLs and the Fan Reviews, Thanks, and the feedback form URLs. I got rid of the “%20” space dividers that were in the URLs for those pages. I’ll warn everyone about the main pages that get the most traffic before I change them. These changes should make it easier for people to be able to find pages just by typing in URLs they think might take them to what they’re looking for. Tonight I’m going to put in a page that will show everyone which URLs have been “fixed” as I go along. I’m going to go from the bottom of the main map page list to the top. If any of your bookmarks don’t work, just use the MAP page. If that doesn’t work, drop me a line. I may have made a big mistake somewhere.

May 20, 2001

Pay It Forward There’s a new fan review on the PIF fan reviews page. You can get to PIF from the Spacey movies page and the In Theaters Now! page.

Bookmarks I’m trying to change some of the URLs to make it easier to find pages just by typing in an addy, so you may have to change some of your bookmarks as time goes on. This is going to be a gradual process, so you may have to go through the MAP page from time to time. I’m also going to make another map page which will tell you the name of every page on the site. I’m going to start that tomorrow, so stay tuned. It’ll take a while to complete.

May 18, 2001

Don’t forget the PIF movie chat tomorrow night.

Old AB press interview I added an appearance Kevin made on local TV back in the autumn of 1999 to the AB section. I’m going to make a new map page for AB in the next few days.

The Shipping News I’ve been working on the Shipping News section. I’ve turned the news updates into 2 different pages. The newest news items can be found by using the link above as always. I’ve put all the pictures from the News page onto the Photos page, although you can still see them on the News page.

Trigger Street Productions:  Cannes Film Festival briefs

CANNES (Variety) – Transatlantic film financier Intermedia has added Kevin Spacey’s Trigger Street Prods. to its stable of producers, staking the company to a first-look deal. The relationship resulted from Intermedia’s involvement in the upcoming Spacey starrer “K-Pax” for Universal.

While Spacey has been thesping up a storm — he followed “K-Pax” with the currently shooting “The Shipping News” — his Trigger Street banner has quietly emerged as a player in independent film and onstage.

On the feature front, the company produced the John Swanbeck-directed “The Big Kahuna” which Lions Gate Films bowed at last year’s Cannes Intl. Film Festival, with Spacey, Danny DeVito and Peter Facinelli starring.

It also paired with London’s Almeida Theater Co. to produce the revival of Eugene O’Neill’s “The Iceman Cometh. “ The play, which starred Spacey, moved from London’s Old Vic to Broadway. Trigger Street also produced the Off Broadway play “Cobb.”

Spacey photos I added a few new pictures here and there throughout the site last night. There may be a scavenger hunt for photos later since I don’t remember where they were all put. I think there was one on the first photographs page and a new thumbnail on the AB fan reviews page and I think the feedback form and the confirmation page for the feedback form and maybe the TSN photos page. I need to start writing these things down.

Kevin’s Weakest Link Jim Bakker is barely edging out Eugene Simonet as The Weakest Link in Spaceyville. Now that Pay It Forward is on video, those numbers may change.

If anyone would like to add a review of the movie or compare seeing it in the theater to seeing it on the small screen, please feel free to do so. There’s a fan review form on the Spacey movies page.

Movie and a chat –  What: Pay It Forward Where: Spaceyland chatroom When: Saturday night, May 19, 9pm EST BROM (bring your own movie)

Entertainment Weekly home video review –

PAY IT FORWARD – Haley Joel Osment, Kevin Spacey (2000, Warner, 123 minutes, PG-13, alson DVD)With its A-list cast (two Oscar winners and a nominee) and New Agey concept, this romantic drama about an altruistic seventh grader, his floozy mom (Helen Hunt), and his scarred teacher stirred up several hives’ worth of prerelease buzz – then got stung by critics and audiences.  But on the boob tube, land of the TV movie, its melodramatic lapses seem less glaring; instead, the actors shine, and you get a glimpse of the small, affecting movie this would-be hit could have been. Grade: B Entertainment Weekly, May 18 issue, page 62. Magazine has picture from movie.

Spacey prevailed over alleged “cybersquatter”

Spacey has prevailed over an alleged “cybersquatter” in a challenge over an Internet domain name.

Quick poll – What will Kevin give his mom for Mother’s Day this year?

Spacey Wins Domain Name Dispute .c The Associated Press MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Oscar-winning actor Kevin Spacey has prevailed over an alleged “cybersquatter” in a challenge over an Internet domain name. The dispute, settled by the National Arbitration Forum, pitted Spacey against John Zuccarini, of Andalusia, Penn., the subject of dozens of domain name complaints and lawsuits. The decision was announced Friday. In this case, the challenged domain name – kevinspacy.com – reflects a common misspelling of the actor’s name, said Erin Thompson, spokeswoman for the National Arbitration Forum. She said Zuccarini evidently profited from advertising directed at Web surfers who made the typographical error while looking for information about the actor. The arbitrator who handled the case ordered the domain name transferred to Spacey. Zuccarini did not file a response in the proceeding. He does not have a listed phone number. In other court proceedings, Thompson said, Zuccarini has admitted registering thousands of similarly misspelled domain names – such as gwenythpaltrow.com, rikymartin.com and britineyspears.com – which she said have earned him close to $1 million a year in advertising revenues. The Minneapolis-based National Arbitration Forum describes itself as the largest U.S.-based provider of domain name dispute resolution services. Internet rules allow for arbitration of such disputes as an alternative to lawsuits. AP-NY-05-12-01 0101EDT Copyright 2001 The Associated Press

Alfre Woodard Alfre was a contestant on Celebrity Who Wants To Be A Millionaire last night and she told everyone her new movie to be released in the Fall was K-PAX which co-starred Kevin Spacey and Jeff Bridges. She briefly described the story line and her role in the movie.  I’ve always been a big fan of hers. Too bad Regis called her Alfred the night before and last night I think he called her Alfie at least once. When I was watching Ben Stiller agonizing over the answers for his loofah question I kept wondering what Kevin would do in that situation. He’d probably call his mom just the way Ben did! I may have to come up with a new poll question. That gardening poll keeps getting pushed aside.

Premiere, June 2001, (U.S) There’s a picture of Kevin and Ben Affleck at one of the post-Oscar parties on page 34, Jude Law on the cover. There is no mention of Ordinary Decent Criminal coming to theaters as a summer movie in the summer movie guide. Will we in the U.S. and Canada ever get a chance to see this on the big screen or on DVD??

Pay It Forward Premieres on Pay Per View on June 29th (U.S).

Shipping News I’m going to re-structure the TSN section this week. Have a page for TSN news and another page specifically for Kevin related TSN news.

No news of Kevin so I’ll say that one of his old SWS co-stars, Frank Whaley, has gotten married. Don’t know if Kevin was invited.

Cobb PLAYBILL I wanted a Cobb PLAYBILL for my Spacey PLAYBILL collection. I had no luck finding one on eBay for a long time, so I took the advice of someone who told me to write to the theater and ask for one, since he said he has done this himself and has rarely been turned down. Maybe I should have asked that man to send a letter, because I never heard back from them.

I finally found one on eBay a few weeks ago. If you won a copy of Kevin’s old GQ from last year, the seller threw in the PLAYBILL. It saddens me to say that Kevin’s eBay worth is dropping fast. Kevin needing a hug plus a Cobb PLAYBILL went for $2 plus shipping. No one else even made a bid! Tonight I’ll add the few small Spacey/Trigger Street mentions to the Cobb page along with the scan of the PLAYBILL cover. This program didn’t have the special “note” from Kevin in it, but it’ll do just fine.

May 8, 2001

Not much new to report today. There was a quote by Kevin pertaining to the newly resolved Writers Guild contract issues which prevented a strike. I’m too tired to go look it up, but it was something about hoping the actors union can do the same. I’ll look that up later. There’s also been some talk about a rumored possible movie for Kevin. Actually, the writers of the book are hoping to sell it as a possible movie and they see Kevin in one of the roles. I don’t. I’ll look that up for everyone later too.

Pay It Forward Still scheduled for release next week. Tuesday the 15th. On DVD and priced for rental on VHS.

We’re going to have a special PIF movie chat on the 19th for people who can get hold of the movie. That’ll probably be people in the US and Canada. We usually wait until movies are available in other parts of the world, but we don’t know if the chat room will still be there at that time. I hope I can get to Hollywood Video before their copy of the movie has been rented by someone else!

More information on the Spacey lunch raffle: According to one of our local Halifax Spacey fans, the tickets went on sale yesterday at local branches of the Royal Bank of Canada and the drawing is to be held on June 1, 2001. Thank you, Lisa!

TORONTO STAR (Canada) May 5, 2001 Actor Kevin Spacey sues Canadian `cybersquatter´ Asks L.A. court for damages, sign-over of domain name By Susan Decker BLOOMBERG NEWS LOS ANGELES – Academy Award-winning actor Kevin Spacey is suing an Alberta man Spacey claims is an “infamous cybersquatter´´ who is using the actor´s name to promote a commercial celebrity Web site. In a lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles, Spacey and M. Profitt Productions Inc. say they own the rights to Spacey’s name and voice, and image cultivated in the theatre and movies. Spacey won an Oscar for best actor for American Beauty and supporting actor for The Usual Suspects. The suit alleges that Jeff Burgar of High Prairie, Alta. is using the domain name

http://www.kevinspacey.com to link to a commercial site, http://www.celebrity1000.com, which has polls about celebrities and advertisements from companies that include AT&T Corp., Microsoft Corp., eBay Inc. and Business Week magazine. “Consistent with the defendant´s long history and pattern of cybersquatting, he has intentionally infringed and diluted Kevin Spacey´s valuable rights in the Kevin Spacey name and mark,´´ the suit contends. The suit says Burgar has used other celebrity names in the past, including Jodie Foster, Tom Cruise and Mariah Carey, and has been sued dozens of times for registering domain names of celebrities or well-known brands such as Chevrolet. Spacey and M. Profitt are asking a judge to order Burgar to sign over the domain name to the actor and are seeking monetary damages. E-mail and telephone messages left for Burgar seeking comment weren’t returned.

I hope Kevin doesn’t have an attorney with an itchy left-click trigger finger. If he decided all of his non-commercial fan sites infringed on his rights to his name, very quickly there would be no one left to tell the new fans that he’s got that cute bald spot under his weave and I’d have to go start a new fan site for Val Kilmer or someone like that and I only have 2 Val Kilmer stories to tell. That would be a small site!

You don’t mind having the rest of us around, do you, Kev?

May 4, 2001

Do you feel lucky?? I’ve been told that for $10 (Canadian)  you can purchase a chance to have a meal with Kevin on the set of The Shipping News when they return to Halifax for filming. Proceeds of ticket sales will go to the IWK Health Centre Foundation. I’m trying to track down the details. Does anyone have an online subscription to The Herald? Small headline has picture of Kevin from last year’s Oscars if I’m not mistaken.

Kevin Spacey needs to start posting these things somewhere.

Reminder: AIDSWalk 2001  Sunday, May 6,2001

Mark Kory Dean, who many of you old time Spacey fans know, is a co-chairman of this fundraising event. Scroll down the Spacey NEWS! to find an article posted on April 4, 2001. For more information about AIDSWalk 2001, go here:

Movie chat Going on the assumption that the chat room will be working, we will once again attempt to have our The Usual Suspects movie chat. If you’ve never done a movie chat before, go to the address given and type in a user name. If someone  is already using that name, try another one. Some fans like to use Spacey-related names so it may take a few tries. You can always go to the room before the scheduled chat and practice.  Once you’re in the chat room and we’ve determined that everyone who’s watching the movie is there, we all start our tapes and DVDs at the same time and we discuss the technical aspects of the movie, the various actors, and of course, Kevin Spacey’s physical attributes and how they relate to the film. For some reason Kevin’s fans are an odd bunch, so try not to take anything personally. You can join us if you just want to chat. You don’t have to watch the movie.

The movie chat is always on Saturday night from 9pm EST to however long anyone sticks around after the movie. Spaceyland chat room.

Slow Spacey news day So I’ll tell you how people are voting in the important Spacey hair poll. So far, the majority of the voters are saying they like Kevin’s hair to be brown, cut short, receding hairline, top combed to the side, the bald spot, graying at the temples, gelled and moussed are tied. We like his face with a hint of stubble. And there’s a nearly unanimous vote for his chest hair. As I recall, one of the more popular gifts on the presents for Kevin poll last Christmas was a gift certificate for 5 free chest hair fluffings. Kevin’s fans are so generous, thinking only of Kevin and never of themselves.

The Spacey nervous habits poll shows that Kevin is a bundle of nervous tics. No news there.

All voting continues.

Writer’s strike anyone? When will that be decided. This morning?

And the winner is .. So far, the lighter from The Usual Suspects is winning the vote for Kevin’s best co-star.

Good news Spacey chatters! The NBCi chat loaded this morning! Guess we can do our regular Tuesday night chat after all. Now if we just had something Spacey to talk about. If all goes well with NBCi, we’ll watch TUS on Saturday night. As usual, Spaceyland chat room, 9pm EST.
