I have just read that in spite of the fact the film is finished and was still due to be released on December 22nd, Kevin’s presence is being wiped off of the Getty film as if he never existed and all of his scenes will be re-shot using Christopher Plummer so I have removed all references to the film, including social media and official movie site links from DMS.
Has it just been a week?
It’s definitely been a very long week. Everyone already knows what’s in the news. I have nothing more to add to any of that. Kevin has been dropped by his agency and his very long time publicist as well as Netflix. The Kevin Spacey Foundation social media accounts and web site had been taken down but the web site was put back up the same night. It is just a guess but I am thinking it may be because that site doesn’t allow comments. Kevin seems to have disappeared off the face of the earth but is reported to be seeking treatment for undisclosed reasons.
I don’t know where we go from here but the holidays are quickly approaching, in the US at any rate with Thanksgiving just over a few weeks away, so I hope we will be able to switch our minds over to that for a while. Hopefully the jangling of sleigh bells will replace the jangling of our nerves. You probably thought I was going to use the word turkey in there, didn’t you? Uh huh, you did.
I still mean what I said in the previous news post. I love to hear from people about anything they may have to say, both good and bad, but not if it’s just to be mean-spirited, contains obnoxious name calling or idiotic death to Kevin Spacey comments. I realize most of those comments are from web trolls and usually give me laugh which was not the intended purpose, but right now I just can’t deal with that kind of thing.
Also, thank you for the condolences on the death of my father.
My father died 2 weeks ago after a 5 year battle with cancer and while the past 10 months had been extremely difficult for my entire family due to the 24/7 care my father had been requiring, the last week before he finally succumbed were particularly hard and painful for us which is why I’m asking that anyone who feels compelled to send me hate mail after seeing the news this evening or reading Kevin’s statement on Twitter in response to that news, to please not do that.
It’s our birthday!
That’s right. Today Driving Mr. Spacey! is officially 17, yes that’s seventeen, years old. I’m sure Kevin would send a card if he remembered the mailing address. One of these days I’m going to do some updates. Really, I am!
I don’t know what Kevin is doing but..
I have been adding a mishmash of things to the site. Some Richard II, Ordinary Decent Criminal, The Usual Suspects, Consenting Adults and other page links to various pages.
I have made some changes.
I have been adding page links to the main pages for movies and plays since some people have said they have trouble with the tabs. I still have more links to add but many changes have already been made.
Trying to catch up…
I did not realize that I had not ever finished the K-PAX section so I am currently working on that. I hadn’t even started some of the pages before now. I have added the links to more than half of the page sections under the main K-PAX page so far.
I also added some pictures of KevieBear from his Facebook page to his Gallery section. I know you don’t want to miss that.
Happy Birthday to Kevin Spacey…
oh, and Keviebear too.
First the gore…
Kevin has signed to portray American writer Gore Vidal in a new Netflix original biopic titled “Gore”. The movie will be filmed in Italy.
And now for the rye…
Kevin’s been nominated!
Kevin was nominated for his role in House of Cards in the Lead Actor in a Drama Series category.
