Watch This – Kevin Spacey's Uncanny Knack for Impersonations

Kevin Spacey’s Impersonations

Kevin Spacey is a talented actor, there’s no denying that, but who knew that the man of a million characters was also a man of a million impersonations? Oh, you did? Well, you must have already seen Spacey’s appearance on James Lipton’s “Inside the Actor’s Studio” from back in July of 2000. Or maybe you saw him in his great “Saturday Night Live” skit in which he does Christopher Walken auditioning for the role of Han Solo in Star Wars.Okay, so maybe it’s no big secret that the man who blindsided moviegoers in The Usual Suspects has a special talent for camouflaging himself in the skin of his acting peers, but it’s new to me, and that means it’s bound to be new to someone else. Below is a clip from Spacey’s aforementioned trip to the “Actor’s Studio” in which he goes along with a silly game of Lipton’s. What follows are six of the most charming minutes you’re bound to see all day, I promise.

Tons of people can do a Walken voice, but I’ve seen few impersonators who can not only tackle the audio side of things, but who can nail the mannerisms of their targets to boot. Yet along comes Spacey to absolutely kill it when it comes to capturing the characteristic nervous twitches of Jimmy Stewart, the shaky indignation of Katharine Hepburn, and the riled, restless behavior of Al Pacino. Those aren’t the only thespians he channels on the spot, but to give away all of them would be to ruin the surprises that show off the playful side of Kevin Spacey, a side most might know he has judging purely from his dramatic roles.

Enjoy the video after the jump.
