Though he grew up in Los Angeles, Kevin Spacey was born in South Orange, N.J., on July 26, 1959. His parents sent their troublesome son to a military school, from which he was expelled. But a prescient teacher at Spacey's next school suggested he try theater -- and a passion was ignited. Spacey landed his first screen role in 1986's Heartburn and has been busy ever since with appearances in more than 50 movies, including L.A. Confidential (1997). He can inhabit almost any part but is best known for two Oscar-winning portrayals: as the deceitful Verbal Kint in The Usual Suspects (1995) and as the heart-wrenchingly lost Lester Burnham in American Beauty (1999). Spacey's other notable works include the biopic Beyond the Sea (2004) and an Emmy- and Golden Globe-nominated turn in the 2008 telefilm Recount. He snagged another Golden Globe nod in 2010 for his role in Casino Jack and later signed on to star in the Netflix original series "House of Cards."
