The longtime film and stage actor was ‘delighted’ and ‘surprised’ to be nominated for his role as a corrupt lobbyist his new film ‘Casino Jack!’
Kevin Spacey has never won a Golden Globe, and he’s been nominated SIX times! The 51-year-old actor just received a nod from the Hollywood Foreign Press for his portrayal in Casino Jack, as Jack Abramoff, a former Washington lobbyist that was involved in possibly one of the biggest scandals since Watergate in 1972. HollywoodLife.com spoke with Kevin at The Cinema Society with The Creative Coalition & Grey Goose screening of Casino Jack Dec. 17, and he revealed how excited and hopeful he is this time around!
“I was extremely over the moon,” Kevin gushed. “Very surprised because the film hasn’t opened yet but luckily the Hollywood Foreign Press had either watched their screeners or gone to screenings. I was very delighted that we managed to be recognized and for me it’s a tribute to George Hickenlooper my late wonderful director. He directed me to this performance, so it’s about George.”
After the film, guests attended the after party at the Setai Fifth Avenue Hotel & Residences, where they sipped cranberry Grey Goose La Poire cocktails and ate asparagus & gruyere quiche, black pepper angus beef, crispy quinoa & piquillo pepper, and New Zealand langostine in red pepper crepe with basil aioli — YUM!
Casino Jack hits theaters Dec. 17 and it’s definitely a must see that your guy is going to love!
