wish is to work with O'Toole...
star Kevin Spacey told of his dream job yesterday
which is to appear on stage alongside the Irish born
theatre giant Peter O'Toole, star of Laurence
of Arabia. However the British media claimed the
actor was english and not Irish. So for the record
the star was born on the 2nd of August in 1932 in
Connamara, Ireland. He
later moved to Leeds in England.
Spacey the two-times Oscar winner said he was
lined up for a series of major new film roles, including
the lead in a musical based on the life of his hero,
early pop star Bobby Darin, whose songs included
Mack the Knife. But he would love to team up
again with American Beauty director Sam
Mendes for a stage comedy, or appear in a play
with legendary thespian O'Toole.
was speaking to the press at the London launch of
Old Vic Productions, a new share-based company
which aims to raise more than £1 million to
plough into new theatre ventures. "I'd love to
do a comedy with Sam Mendes directing it," he
said. "I'd also love to work with Peter O'Toole.
I hear he's very naughty on stage, so I might giggle
The actor said he was currently committed to a string
of films, starting with K-Pax, in which he
plays a mental patient who may come from another planet.
who disclosed he was investing more than £100,000
himself in the new Old Vic company, for which he works
as a consultant, said one of his ideas for boosting
theatre attendance was to introduce film shows. He
said that the challenge was for a theatre like the
Old Vic not just to "rest on its tradition,"
but to build a future with new works and updated versions
of existing plays.
also added his voice to Mendes's recent criticism
of the trend for big name Hollywood stars to be cast
in British stage productions. "There's a difference,
I would say, between celebrity casting and casting
actors who are great in the roles," he said.
The American Beauty star said he was first introduced
to the Old Vic as a child, and had become so passionate
about it he still had all the original programmes
from that time. His interest in rejuvenating it had
been reignited when he appeared there in the critically-acclaimed
recent production of The Ice Man Cometh. "It
continues to be the favourite theatre I've probably
ever played in," he said.
Old Vic Productions, whose chairman is Lord Attenborough,
is offering a stake in its running to anyone who invests
a minimum of £2,000 in its future.
