Biography

American actor, film director, producer, screenwriter, and singer. He won the Oscar as best actor on 26 March 2000 for his role as a depressed suburban father who re-evaluates his life in American Beauty (1999). Since beginning his career on the New York Stage in the early '80s, he reached a peak of acclaim in the Broadway revival of The Iceman Cometh, at its opening on 4 June 1999.

Spacey was raised in California and went to the Los Angeles Valley College before attending Juilliard School in Manhattan. A skilled mimic, he performed as a stand-up comedian before his Broadway debut in Ibsen's Ghosts. TV roles brought him to the attention of casting directors, specifically his role as a cop in Wiseguy and as televangelist Jim Bakker in Fall From Grace. After a few film roles, he returned to the stage in the early '90s, winning a Tony Award in 1991 for Lost in Yonkers.

His film career began to take off with good roles and in 1995 he played in the hit caper film The Usual Suspects, for which he won an Oscar as Best Supporting Actor the following year.

His other starring roles have included the comedy-drama film Swimming with Sharks (1994), psychological thriller Seven (1995), the neo-noir crime film L.A. Confidential (1997), the drama Pay It Forward (2000), the science fiction-mystery film K-PAX (2001), Lex Luthor in the superhero film Superman Returns (2006), and Doc, a criminal kingpin in the action film Baby Driver (2017).

In Broadway theatre, Spacey won a Tony Award for his role in Lost in Yonkers. In 2017, he hosted the 71st Tony Awards. He was the artistic director of the Old Vic theatre in London from 2004 until stepping down in mid-2015. Since 2013, Spacey has played Frank Underwood in the Netflix political drama series House of Cards. For his role as Underwood, he has won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor – Television Series Drama and two consecutive Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series.

In late October 2017, Spacey came out as gay after actor Anthony Rapp alleged that Spacey, then aged 26, made a "sexual advance" toward him in 1986, when Rapp was 14 years old. Rapp's allegation was published in a Buzzfeed interview originally posted at 6:32 PM PDT on 29 October in Los Angeles (30-Oct-17, 1:32 AM GMT) [1] [2]. In response, Spacey tweeted at 9 PM PDT on 29 October 2017 in Los Angeles (4 AM UT, 30-Oct-17 [3]) that he didn't remember the encounter, but that if he behaved as described by Rapp, he owes him the sincerest apology for what would have been "deeply inappropriate drunken behavior."

Spacey also disclosed in his tweet that "I have had relationships with both men and women. I have loved and had romantic encounters with men throughout my life, and I choose now to live as a gay man." Spacey's statement drew negative reactions for its combination of the two topics, as many noted Rapp's gender was not the issue. Spacey was widely criticized on social media for the timing of his coming out; he was accused of using it to change the subject away from Rapp's accusation, as well as making a connection between homosexuality and paedophilia.

On 30 October 2017, Netflix and House of Cards producer Media Rights Capital issued a statement announcing that they were "deeply troubled" by the allegations and that House of Cards would end after its upcoming sixth season. The International Emmy Awards tweeted the same day that Spacey would not be receiving the International Emmy Founders Award previously planned for the upcoming 2017 Emmy Awards ceremony [4].
