Nine Impersonations by Kevin Spacey in Six Minutes

in Comedy, Film | July 15th, 2011

Kevin Spacey has got talent. The man has won two Academy Awards. So we know he can act. He can sing. He now serves as the Artistic Director of the Old Vic Theatre in London. And let’s check off another box. Spacey can do some great impersonations.

Appearing on Inside the Actors Studio back in July 2000, Spacey charmed the host James Lipton and the audience by reeling off nine impersonations in six minutes. Jimmy Stewart, Katharine Hepburn, Marlon Brando, and Al Pacino, they all make an appearance. And so does Christopher Walken, who delighted our readers earlier this week with a great reading of The Three Little Pigs. You will find the Spacey and Walken videos housed in our collection of Cultural Icons here.
