American actor, winner of the Oscar as best actor on 3/26/2000.
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 it's opening on 6/04/1999.
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.
