Kevin Spacey is "finished with acting"

Quote:
Oscar winner KEVIN SPACEY has officially quit his acting career, to concentrate on his position as boss of a London theatre. The star insists he is sick of the Hollywood system and has enjoyed more than enough acting success. Spacey - artistic director of the Old Vic Theatre - says, "I don't care about my personal acting career anymore. I'm done with it. After 10 years of making movies and going better than I ever could have imagined, I sort of had to ask myself: 'What am I supposed to do with all of this success that I have had?" "Am I just going to keep making movie after movie and be concerned with all of that 'Are you up, are you down, are you hot, are you not?', and I don't really care. "What I really care about is the remarkable experience of being able to be a part of bringing people together."

Man, he's one of my favorite actors of all-time, but he does have a point. Where does he go from here? He seems really excited about his Old Vic job, I'm glad he has that.

He could go on talk shows and do impersonations of other actors like he did on "Inside the Actors Studio." I'd enjoy that very much.

He should host SNL again

He's kinda hinted at this for a while now hasn't he. I remember a 60 minutes (?) interview about his theater career and how much he hated making movies. He is one of my favorite actors

I want him to do it to Will Ferrell doing his impression of James Lipton.

Good for him. He's always been one of my favorite actors - add this as another reason why.

awww i'll be sad if he is in no more movies; he's an amazing actor. one of my faves for sure. but, he should do what makes him happy. I don't blame him for being sick of Hollywood.

Does this mean they won't make a sequel to Superman Returns after all??

The Walken pacing took me forever to do, btw.

That was my same thought...actors have made similar announcements before...only to go on to make movies.


Hugh Grant anyone?


Aaaaaanyway, Kevin Spacey is awesome, I wish him luck in whatever he does

A terrible loss for his fans and movie-buffs alike, but I'm terribly happy for him. Nice to see him doing what he's truly passionate about.

I thought Kevin Spacey quit his acting career around the time K-PAX came out.
