KEVIN SPACEY (Lester Burnham) won an Academy Award in 1996 as Best Supporting Actor for his stunning dual role in the crime drama "The Usual Suspects." This year, he was honored with a Tony Award nomination for Best Actor in a Play for his acclaimed performance in the Broadway revival of Eugene O'Neill's "The Iceman Cometh."

Spacey most recently starred in the action thriller "The Negotiator" and the screen adaptation of David Rabe's play "Hurlyburly."
