Trivia that mentions this person:
Superman Returns [2006]
  • The role of Lex Luthor was always intended for Kevin Spacey. The production schedule was adjusted to accommodate Spacey's six week break from his duties as the Old Vic theater director.
  • Brandon Routh, Kate Bosworth and Kevin Spacey signed on without having read the script.
    Skyfall [2012]
  • Kevin Spacey was considered for a role, but declined due to scheduling conflicts. It is believed that director Sam Mendes originally offered the role of the villain to Spacey, the part in the film played by Javier Bardem. Spacey worked with this Mendes on American Beauty, in which Kevin Spacey's character complains to his wife about missing a [James Bond] marathon on television.
    Spectre [2015]
  • Kevin Spacey was rumored at one time to play the main villain as he had been also for Skyfall. While Spacey was in fact considered to play the villain in Skyfall before production delays and scheduling conflicts with his play Richard III interfered with his casting, he has indicated on the record that he was never offered or considered to play the Bond villain in Spectre and doesn't know why and where from these rumors keep eventuating.
    A Bug's Life [1998]
  • The casting of Hopper proved problematic. John Lasseter's top choice was Robert De Niro, who repeatedly turned the part down, as did a succession of other actors. Kevin Spacey met John Lasseter at the 68th Academy Awards ceremony and Lasseter asked Spacey if he would be interested in doing the voice of Hopper. Spacey was delighted and signed on immediately.
    Hercules [1997]
  • James Coburn, Kelsey Grammer, Steve Buscemi, Jason Lee, Phil Hartman, Michael Keaton, Michael Ironside, Benjamin Bratt, Martin Landau, Ned Beatty, Terrence Mann, Christopher Plummer, Ron Silver, Kevin Spacey, Bill Hunter, and Rod Steiger auditioned for Hades. Ten of these actors that auditioned would later get parts in Pixar Films.
    The Road to El Dorado [2000]
  • Goran Visnjic and Kevin Spacey were considered the role of Hernán Cortés.
    Ice Age [2002]
  • Antonio Banderas, Anthony Hopkins, Ralph Fiennes, Kiefer Sutherland, Toby Stephens, Kevin Spacey, Liam Neeson, Tommy Lee Jones, Clint Eastwood, Gene Hackman, Tim Curry, Ian McKellen & Lance Henriksen were all considered for the role of Diego before Denis Leary was cast.
    Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted [2012]
  • Jeff Bridges, Russell Brand, Nicolas Cage, Kevin Spacey & Hugo Weaving were considered for the role of Vitaly before Bryan Cranston was cast.
