September 14, 2010 – I’ve started a new page. Since the site celebrates it’s 10th anniversary next month, I’ve decided to share some old Spacey things that are found elsewhere on the site as well as some of my own reminiscences from the years past.
September 8, 2010 – Gonna be in London next month? I got the following info in an email this morning (BTW, spellings are British):
Kevin Spacey, Hollywood and theatre star, will share stories in a special ‘Audience with’ event to support Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research. Kevin will be interviewed at the evening, hosted by Alastair Campbell and Ed Victor. The intimate ambience of the Criterion Theatre means the audience can put their own questions directly to Kevin during the evening. ‘A Special Audience With Kevin Spacey’ will take place at the Criterion Theatre on Sunday 3 October at 8pm. There are a limited number of tickets including a champagne reception hosted by Alastair and Ed from 6.30pm available for £120 each. Seats for the show only are for £25, £50 or £60 depending on their location in the theatre. For further information and to book, please contact Sophie Garrett on 020 7685 1022 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.beatbloodcancers.org/kevinspacey.
August 27, 2010 – Sad news. Kevin Spacey has no interest in recording a Christmas album. I know, you’re all as devastated as I am. No CD with a cover shot of Kevin in a bulky sweater sitting in front of a roaring fire. No accompanying DVD sold only at Target. No singing a selection from the album on a Macy’s Thanksgiving float. No stops off at local PBS stations to showcase a pre-recorded TV special. No Kevin Spacey Christmas Extravaganza tickets being given away with a pledge of $500 or more. I guess we’ll just have to make do with Johnny Mathis this year.
August 26, 2010 – Great news! Something to look forward to. Kevin will be appearing in a stage production of Richard III at the Brooklyn Academy of Music’s Harvey Theater in New York from February – April of 2012 followed by a short international tour winding up at the Old Vic in May of 2012 for 4 months followed by a longer international tour. More details will be coming later. This is very exciting news! This announcement has been on many news and gossip sites today. Thanks Linda.
August 24, 2010 – Kevin is expected to be at the Toronto International Film Festival next month. Thanks to Spacey fan Carla for the following link.
August 19, 2010 – HBO has snapped up the developing rights for a new Triggerstreet TV show. Which could possibly star none other than Kevin himself if all the news blips on the web are true. It’s currently called The Crux and will be about the leader of a high-profile cult. I hope this gets made and that Kevin will star in it.
I just noticed this entry on the Calendar page:
TV – PBS – Kevin narrates On Record: The Soundtrack Of Our Lives (Fall 2010)
I haven’t seen anything else about this since I originally added it to the calendar but Fall is right around the corner. Hopefully it won’t be on during pledge week!
August 16, 2010 – I am going insane! I’ve been trying to get the polls and Feedback pages working again but so far they are resisting every attempt. I’ve removed the link for the Feedback form from the Map page for now.
I’ve moved some of the news from the bottom of this page to the news archives pages. Now this page just goes back 2 years! I’ll be moving more to the archives later.
Only 70 days until the site will celebrate it’s 10th birthday!
August 13, 2010 – Kevin says on Facebook today that he signed both letters. I may have to set up side by side comparison photos and poll the readers.
August 12, 2010 – Now Kevin thanks his fans at Driving Mr. Spacey! for the birthday card we sent! He’s really a fun guy. I really need to either get my scanner fixed or buy a new one.
Shhhh …Don’t let on to the bear but that doesn’t look like Kevin’s signature. Someone else must have signed the letter in his place.
August 11, 2010 – I’m loopy after having dental work so hopefully this will be coherent. If not, I’ll fix it tomorrow!
KevieBear received an exciting piece of mail. From London! It’s a thank you letter from Kevin, for the birthday card KevieBear sent to him. As you can imagine, K-Bear is now impossible to live with and is ignoring the fact that the signature on the letter does not look like any Spacey signature any of us fans have ever seen before. KBear thinks it is some kind of secret code, but hasn’t figured it out yet.
Did you catch Kevin on that AFI tribute to Mike Nichols that was on TV last month? I thought at the time that it must be a rare occasion these days when he finds himself to be the youngest person in the room!

Kevin is going to be hosting a 192nd birthday bash/fundraiser for the Old Vic Theatre on July 1st. There will be a champagne reception, dinner, art auction and a very special musical performance by Paul McCartney. Fans who are too young to know why he is such an impressive guest, he was the Justin Bieber of a 1960’s singing group called The Beatles. Big bucks will get you a premium table! Ticket info on the Old Vic web site.
Reports say that Kevin has signed to do a film called Margin Call which will co-star Stanley Tucci, Carla Gugino and Zachary Quinto.
In other film news, Target was selling Men Who Stare at Goats for $10 last week.

Kevin is now the voice of KAYAK as well as the voice of Honda. Some have reported seeing his commercial while watching manly sporting shows on ESPN. I however came across it during an episode of Say Yes to the Dress.
Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil is being re-released on DVD Tuesday, June 1st. It appears to be a repackaging of an earlier version but this time will be part of a Clint Eastwood collection. MGGE can be purchased as a separate DVD though. I’ve seen it advertised at Amazon and Barnes & Noble. The descriptions at both places just say that there are subtitles, widescreen and full screen versions on the disc. The lovely new cover is very striking though, as you can see for yourself.
A few weeks ago, I received in the mail, a small note card from Kevin thanking me, his fans at Driving Mr. Spacey, the chat room fans, KevieBear and my sister for the annual Christmas card. I posted a tiny piece of the card at Twitpic since KevieBear was quite excited to see part of his name in Kevin’s own handwriting.
*As soon as I recall the password, I’ll post it here.
April 1. 2010 – These stories get weirder and weirder. Now the Old Vic has announced that they have taken legal action against a man who claims to be Kevin’s son. He’d been seen lurking in the park near the theater and has tried to enter the theater while trying to catch Kevin when he was at work. The theater spokesman said that while he does look like Kevin, Kevin denies being even remotely related to the man and has said he’ll take him to court and force a DNA test if he doesn’t stop bothering Kevin and his friends and family. The official statement is here.
March 30, 2010 – Kevin’s picture was in this morning’s Washington Post newspaper and this time they didn’t use the picture of him with socialite poodle Campari. No sirree, they used a very tiny color headshot. And it even has his name under the picture this time!
The Washington Post, Style, page C2.

Another long-awaited film – “Casino Jack,” in which Kevin Spacey plays disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff – has found a distributor, Metropolitan Inc., which announced Monday that it will release the movie in theaters this fall, Variety Reports.
(I have just one small complaint. OK, more than one small complaint. First, Kevin’s picture is smaller than the one used of that annoying Rod Blagojevich who is only shown because he’s on Celebrity Apprentice and second, Kevin’s picture is the only one from the paper which is not shown on the Post’s online site. They have a large picture of Jack Abramoff instead. BTW – I was going to tear out the small item for posterity but decided that the entire page might be worth saving. I mean, how many times are we going to see Kevin Spacey on the same newspaper page as Kukla, Fran and Ollie? I won’t even mention that K,F & O have a much larger picture and an entire article devoted to them.)
I was reading an online article the other day that was saying that a new Superman film was in the very early stages of pre-pre-production but no word on whether any of the actors from the previous film, such as say, Kevin Spacey as Lex Luthor, will be asked to return to reprise their roles. His being in Superman Returns was the only reason I saw that one.
The Men Who Stare at Goats is now available on DVD and you can catch Kevin on the “making of” type thing on it.
March 29, 2010 – Kevin has taken to Twitter and Facebook to refute the odd rumors that Kate Moss is going to be in a play at the Old Vic. This is not a joke.
March 12, 2010 – London’s Apollo Theatre will play host to a star-studded, one-off theatre show celebrating the world’s tribes.
The evening will feature performance of tribal prose and poetry from some of the UK and Hollywood’s leading actors and musicians including Kevin Spacey, Julie Christie, Mackenzie Crook, Sinead Cusack, Colin Firth, Emilia Fox, Michael Gambon, Sophie Okonedo, Mark Rylance, Danny Sapani, John Sessions, Juliet Stevenson, Ken Stott, Zoe Wanamaker, and James Wilby. There will also be a performance by Bruce Dickinson, Jon Lord and Ian Paice.
This unique theatrical event is inspired by the words and images of tribal peoples featured in the recently published book ‘We Are One – a celebration of tribal peoples’ to mark the 40th anniversary of Survival International, the world’s foremost tribal rights organization.
The event will be held on Sunday April 18th.
Thanks to Matthew of Survival International for the info.
January 17, 2010 – Kevin tweeted on Twitter and posted to Facebook last night that he has been traveling to LA, NYC, London and will be heading to China soon.
There seems to be some question about whether he is really on Facebook and which Kevin Spacey on Facebook he really is. Yes, he is really on Facebook. He took over one of the fan-started Kevin Spacey’s and is now that Kevin Spacey himself.
Watched Moon last night. I enjoyed it. The company that released it should have had a competition to get people into the theaters to see it when it was out. There could have been a fabulous prize for whoever correctly guessed how many times Kevin said the word “Sam”. People would have been forced to see it more than once since they’d have forgotten they were counting.
January 16, 2010 – Wow. I can’t believe how long it’s been since I updated the site! Let’s see… Kevin’s play ended. He went on vacation.
Moon is available on home video now. I rented it from Netflix. Gonna watch it tonight during the chat if anyone else wants to join me. 9pm EST in the chat room. Link on the map page. Entertainment Weekly says that Moon is probably going to become a cult classic.
I need a fantastic new picture for the entrance page. I’ll have to go through my old magazines and find one. One of the (few) complaints that I receive about the current one is that it doesn’t look like Kevin Spacey. I disagree. I think it does. Granted, it’s a few years old but it’s not like he’s not recognizable in it.
