Ever wondered why you don't see much of Kevin Spacey on the big screen these days? Well, wonder no more, as the man himself has given a pretty definitive answer. He tells a lot of people to F*** Off.

Speaking to THR, Spacey revealed that:

Unless it's Martin Scorsese, and it's a really significant role, f--- off. I'm not playing someone's brother. I'm not playing the station manager. I'm not playing the FCC chairman.

Which does explain why he's not made a K-PAX or Pay it Forward in a long time.

Spacey also reveals that a lot of people told him he was crazy for making House of Cards, the critically acclaimed and wildly popular Netflix series. but, he says, he's "used to people thinking I'm nuts. And you know what? I kind of love it."

He goes on to admit to being an Andy Murray ¨groupie¨, which seems an appropriate bit of fandom for a passionate Tennis player - especially one who now describes himself as ¨a Brit¨ following a decade in charge of London's Old Vic theatre.

What do you guys think? Has Spacey made the right decision to shun supporting roles, or do you desperately want to see him as the FCC chairman in an upcoming movie? How do you feel about the California-raised actor describing himself as British? Let me know below!
