Who knew Kevin Spacey could do such great impersonations?

Oy, Kevin, Kevin...

In most cases, the jackassitude of Liberal Hollywood is something I can safely sequester in a compartment apart from talent or charisma. Spacey is an exception. He is an individual of such tremendous talent and utterly beguiling charm that I find it physically painful at times to think about the things he believes about the world. The very notion that this guy buys into Hugo Chavez' felgercarb one iota brings up such intense cognitive dissonance in me that I have to eat a Tums whenever I think of it.

I really just cannot bring myself to dislike this guy (unlike, say, Sean Penn, who is almost as talented an actor, but who I am perfectly comfortable declaring a total douchenozzle...even as I enjoy his work). I suppose that's just as well; he lives in a world where literally everyone he talks to believes the same sort of shite, so I suppose it's only reasonable to him that it's right.

Still, it saddens me to think of what an effective spokesman he would be for what I judge to be more reasonable positions, were he only to apply some of that wit and intellect to challenging some of his received wisdom.

I'll bet he could do a mean Obama.

Spacey can also sing- his Bobby Darin was spot on.

The guy who shocked me with his versatility was Robert Downey, Jr., who sings exactly like Sting. He does a duet with Sting of "Every Breathe You Take"- and only a highly discerning ear can tell who's singing.

Last, I've always disassociated artists and their politics. Penn was great in Milk and lousy in Cuba.

I suddenly realized how much Kevin Spacey looks like Mike Huckabee.
