Don’t call it a comeback! No, seriously, one look at the dusty ass Goodwill wardrobe and wig found in a dumpster behind Tyler Perry Studios marked Too Busted Even For Us, lets you know that Kevin Spacey has been here for years. Here scraping the bottom of the barrel for any acting gig he can get ever since being outed as a top-shelf creep in 2017. Kevin’s last paying gig was in an Italian feature film about a falsely accused pedophile opposite Faye Dunaway and directed by Vanessa Redgrave’s husband Franco Nero. Now, according to TMZ, Kevin is back in the US filming a new movie called Peter Five Eight starring some lady you’ve ever heard of and directed by some guy who must need the work.
As I said, we can’t call it a comeback until Kevin’s wigs weren’t purchased from CVS the week after Halloween. I’m pretty sure Kevin had to remove the chin strap on this one himself using his teeth. Here he is on set in glamorous downtown Dunsmuir, CA (pop 1,650).
I am living for the random tags on this post. Imagine looking up #Girl, #Fun, #Nature and Kevin’s ghoulish ass pops up? You got what you deserved, ya perv! TMZ reports that Kevin’s “been filming in the small NorCal town around the clock” and that “he looks happy to be there.” They don’t offer any details about the movie but according to IMDB, it’s written and directed by Michael Zaiko Hall and stars German-American actor Jet Jandreau whose last project is the recently wrapped film Hotel Dunsmuir, also written and directed by Michael Zaiko Hall, which sounds fishy as hell to me. The Daily Mail adds:
The indie production is directed and written by Michael Zaiko Hall, whose career highlights involve visual effects work on Cars 3 and Incredibles 2, and will also star Jet Jandreau although little else is known about the film, such as a synopsis.
Spacey was seen on set surrounded by a small amount of production personnel wearing a black turtleneck and matching slacks with a wool overcoat.
The actor looked relatively chipper all things considered as he flashed a smile at one point and lit up a cigarette before shooting some scenes.
The genre assigned to Peter Five Eight (probably referencing the bible verse “Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour“) is thriller. And the description of the plot for Hotel Dunsmuir is “a young woman with extrasensory perception flees her abusive husband, only to land at a historic hotel containing a sinister presence.” So even if it turns out this is the same damn movie, Kevin is, at the very least, well cast. It’s hard to picture a more sinister presence than Kevin Spacey in a highly flammable wig.
