But do you remember Kevin Spacey as Mel Profit in CBS' Wiseguy?
Yeah, but that was classic Spacey - that was one of the early roles that really drew attention to him as an actor. Before Wiseguy
he had done, what, Rocket Gibralter
and Working Girl
Now, with just from 1995 releases, (Seven, The Usual Suspects, Swimming With Sharks
k), he probably feels beyond television.
However, there does seem to be less of a stigma - just on The Shield
, for example, just to have the performances of Forrest Whitaker and Glenn Close, both Oscar-winners, willing to come in and work, not just in a 1-off, but a season or so, was a sign to me that, maybe, things are changing.
