Kevin Spacey is hit or miss with me. I want to really get behind him. I do. I think he is a brilliant actor…one of the best of our time. He just freaks me out. Like in ‘Se7en’ – he was way too good at playing serial killer guy. I’ll admit that I don’t know too many serial killers, or any serial killers (I hope), so my assessment of his portrayal doesn’t carry the most weight, but he pretty much fell in line with how I think most of us treat that subject. It’s givin’ me goosebumps just thinking about it. And then there was ‘American Beauty’ guy – an eyelash away from making Chris Hanson’s next documentary. Just flat out sick.
The irony of struggling with the acceptance of a man whom I’ve come to know only through his portrayal of fictional characters is not lost on me. I get it. I just can’t get beyond it. That being said, his appearance on SNL a while back, and his “Christopher Walken Han Solo Screen Test” skit, was one of the best pieces of impersonation comedy I have ever witnessed:
