man, he always had a creepy, predatory vibe about him, but I thought he was just a good actor.

turns out it wasn't an act.

That's exactly it. I probably would have said "calculating" and "predatory" before yesterday. But the very thing I liked about his acting reads very differently now.

Someone on Reddit compared him to Bill Cosby 5 months ago.

teh wife and I started watching House Of Cards a couple seasons ago. I never liked it that much. it started out okay, but the plotlines quickly got so dark and depraved, with nothing else to redeem it beyond the shock value of those, that I lost interest.

had I not seen Kevin Spacey in that, knowing that he was also producing it, I would've said calculating as well. I started to suspect he was more of an actual creep than a pretend one.

Now it's obvious that show was closer to reality than people thought. haha, I remember Obama praising it (which i thought was stupid even though I hadn't even seen the show yet). his legacy just keeps getting worse. blame him for Trump getting in office as well, but burying whatever was left of the Democratic party's progressive rep to curry favor with sleazy banks and financial institutions, along with Eric Holder's "too big to jail" legal doctrine.

*steps off soapbox*
back to House of Cards...
If I am remembering correctly, this wouldn't be the first time in film/TV history where some old creep's "art" starts to imitate his "life." Woody Allen is an obvious one; but there are others

He turned in another great performance as legendary predator Jack Abrahamoff, arguably the most notorious lobbyist in the history of Capitol Hill, in the biopic Casino Jack.

Have you seen it?

If not I definitely recommend it.

I remember there being some article about Netflix data analysis indicating that people that like the original House of Cards also like Spacey. It was groundbreaking in a few ways. It was the first show Netflix spent that kind of money on and put made their big bet based on their data analysis.

But that means they know who liked Kevin Spacey. A list of people like me that couldn't read the creepy vibe until someone else pointed it out.

I liked Kevin Spacey as well, in The Usual Suspects & LA Confidential. I also saw him in American Beauty, which I must confess I once thought was a sophisticated and good movie. Now I would consider it "absurd, pretentious, and bad" I also saw him on Inside the Actors Studio, and he seemed funny and likable.

oh well. we shouldn't put these people up on pedestals to begin with.
