Kevin Spacey Can Be an 'Arrogant SOB' If He Damn Well Wants To
Last week Kevin Spacey was on Jimmy Kimmel Live the same night as Toronto
speed freak mayor Rob Ford. Ford’s brother Doug was also there, and was angered by the fact that he wasn’t able to get a picture with Spacey because he apparently confused the guests of a late night show with costumed characters at Disneyland.
The lack of a photo op spurred a rant so vitriolic and unfounded (also, hilarious), it moved Rob Ford to be the voice of reason. Think about THAT.
If I knew I was going to be in the same building as these two, I’d probably put out a Do Not Disturb sign too.
It’s really cool when actors and other celebrities are willing to take the time to give autographs and pictures. But they’re not obligated to do it as part of their job description. I get the argument that we, as fans, support them as artists, and that they wouldn’t be able to do what they do without us. So you know what they owe us for that? Producing quality work. They make movies, we pay for those movies. That’s the deal, Dougie.
Spacey, however, is a bigger man than I. (Good thing, too.) He heard Ford’s complaint, and responded in the best way possible.
When did Mayor Ford start doing what people tell him to do? All you had to do was ask, guys. Here’s your pic. pic.twitter.com/DtDTqAl8Lb— Kevin Spacey (@KevinSpacey) March 15, 2014
Just to rub it in (no, Doug, it really IS just you), he followed that last tweet up with this one, linking to the fantastically named Kevin Spacey With Common Folk Tumblr.
Spacey’s a softie for a selfie.
