Kevin Spacey has been regarded as one of the most talented performers in show business for many years. He has portrayed many memorable characters on stage and screen. He has won Oscar and Tony awards for his acting brilliance. He is also a very talented singer. Therefore, Spacey was a very obvious choice to host the 2017 Tony Awards. This is the show that honors the greatest achievements in Broadway musicals and plays. Spacey has talked about hosting the Tony Awards for quite some time. However, he finally has the time this year to actually do it. Scheduling conflicts during the past several years have preventing Spacey from being able to commit the time needed for the rehearsals leading up to the event.
Kevin is best known for his acting in movies. However, he considers himself a stage actor first and foremost. He has said on many occasions that there is nothing quite as thrilling as being on stage in front of a live audience. He loves the rush of acting without a net. This is why he wanted to host the Tonys so badly. He will be able to honor other stage actors like himself. He has said that he has many surprises in store when he eventually hosts Broadway’s biggest night of the year.
Kevin Spacey has been asked how he has been able to stay relevant for so many years when other actors fade into obscurity. He says that he is not quite sure. He simply chooses projects that allow him to play characters that interest him. He really does not put much thought into the mass appeal of the project. His role on “House of Cards” came about because he simply wanted to play a scheming politician. He feels that many actors put too much thought into their career choices and they end up making bad decisions. Spacey has spent many years guiding his career using his gut instinct. He looks forward to hosting the Tony Awards.
