365 Days of Shakespeare

That's right – the Bard in a year.

299. Kevin Spacey to play Shakespeare’s Richard III in London and New York

This brings me great joy.

Kevin Spacey – one of those actors who I will go and see in a movie no matter how bad the movie looks, because after all, if he’s in it, at least his part will be good – is playing Richard III? Possibly my favorite Shakespeare character ever? Yes, please.

What’s interesting about this is that Sam Mendes, the man who directed Spacey in American Beauty, will be directing the stage production of Richard III. I would be very curious to see how his directorial style translates from screen to stage.
