KEVIN SPACEY (Hopper) provides the voice of this menacing and manipulative grasshopper villain, whose tough exterior conceals an even tougher interior and a superior intellect.

"I've loved animation ever since I was a kid," says the actor. "And since the medium has sort of exploded over the past ten years, I've wanted to do an animated voice. It was great to finally be asked to do one."

"'A Bug's Life' is such a wonderful story," continues Spacey. "John Lasseter is a marvelous director. He's like a kid, he gets so excited. He's a very great man to work with and we had a heck of a time. It's a little tough on your voice but when you see it all put together, it looks so effortless and you forget all the work that went into it.

Spacey recently starred opposite Samuel L. Jackson in "The Negotiator" and, last year, won acclaim for his role as Detective Jack Vicennes in the award-winning "L.A. Confidential."

In 1995, he received an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his work in "The Usual Suspects," directed by Bryan Singer.

His other film credits include "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil," "A Time to Kill," "Looking for Richard," "Seven," "Swimming With Sharks," "Outbreak," "Iron Will," "The Ref," "Glengarry Glen Ross" and "Consenting Adults."

Spacey launched his extensive New York Stage career with a role as a messenger in Joseph Papp's Central Park production of "Henry IV, Part I" and, a year later, starred opposite Liv Ullman in Ibsen's "Ghosts." His breakthrough performance came as Jamie Tyrone opposite Jack Lemmon in Jonathan Miller's 1986 Broadway/London production of Eugene O'Neill's "Long Day's Journey Into Night." He won the 1991 Tony Award for his performance as Uncle Louie in Neil Simon's "Lost in Yonkers" with Irene Worth and appeared in "Playland" at the Manhattan Theatre Club, directed by its author, Athol Fugard.

Television audiences are familiar with his work as Mel Profitt on the CBS series "Wiseguy" and for his performance as Clarence Darrow in the American Playhouse production of "Darrow," directed by John Coles.

In addition to his acting career, Spacey made his directorial debut in 1997 with the film "Albino Alligator," starring Matt Dillon, Faye Dunaway and Gary Sinise.

His next film to be released is "Hurlyburly" opposite Sean Penn, Chazz Palminteri, Robin Wright Penn, Meg Ryan and Anna Paquin.

Spacey is currently shooting the Irish gangster film "Ordinary Decent Criminal" for director Thaddeus O'Sullivan, a co-production between Icon Films and his own production company, Trigger Street.

In the spring he will return to the New York stage in director Howard Davies' acclaimed production of Eugene O'Neill's "The Iceman Cometh," which originated at the Almeida Theatre in London before moving to the Old Vic. The Broadway production will be produced by Trigger Street and Emanuel Azenberg.

Kevin is about to begin shooting "American Beauty" opposite Annette Benning for director Sam Mendes.
