BILLIONAIRE BOYS CLUB

Reviewed by GREG KING Director: James Cox Stars: Ansel Elgort, Taron Egerton, Kevin Spacey, Emma Roberts, Jeremy Irvine, Thomas Cocquerel, Ryan Rottman, Bokeem Woodbine, Barney Harris, Billie Lourd, Judd Nelson. Oscar winning actor Kevin Spacey’s fall from grace was quite spectacular. Not only was his performance as John Paul Getty in Ridley Scott’s drama All The Money In The World deleted and his performance reshot with the role filled by Christopher Plummer, but he was fired from his hit tv series House Of Cards and his character was killed off. But one film from Continue reading

At the height of his Hollywood career, dual Oscar winning actor Kevin Spacey left Tinseltown to pursue a role as the artistic director of London's famous Old Vic Theatre, where he trod the boards in the shadows of illustrious giants of the theatre such as Gielgud and Olivier. He relished the physicality of the return to performing on stage. One of the many achievements of his return to the theatre was The Bridge Project Company, a trans-Atlantic theatre company combining actors from America and Continue reading
