I was a big fan of Kevin Spacey’s from the second I first saw him play Mel Profit on Wiseguy, but the guy irritates the hell out of me now and it has nothing to do with K-Pax. First, he spent an outrageous amount of money to buy an old Oscar for the purpose of giving it back to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Nothing like taking money that could have been given to charity to make your own awards that much more prestigious. God help us if a normal person had an Oscar, even if it is one that was given to a composer from the forties that no one remembers.
Then there is the Bobby Darin thing. If your point is that Darin was such a great, under appreciated artist than exactly what is the purpose of releasing a Soundtrack of Darin’s hits sung by you. Shouldn’t you be steering people to the originals? Is it about your love of Darin’s artistry or showing what a fabulous all around performer you are? Let me word this a little differently. Is it about your love of Darin’s artistry or your love for yourself?
