Top notch from the Top Floor.

I was watching an interview with Kevin Spacey in a podcast the other day (South Bank Show with Mervyn Bragg). He discusses giving up Hollywood to become the owner of the Old Vic theatre in London.

I've been thinking about a remark he made about teaching young actors, actually it was a remark made by Jack Lemmon to Spacey. Asked why he would spend the time and energy training and teaching Lemmon said:

"You've got to send the elevator back down."

The Usual Suspects
and Kpax are two of my favourite movies. Spacey does a good 'everyman'. Never liked American Beauty, they tell me it was better than it seemed.
