Kevin Spacey wants to be in a Woody Allen movie. And he's a guy with a can-do spirit, he tells GQ. "I believe this: If an actor wants a role or wants to work with somebody, then you do everything within reason to try to get that role. If they want you to audition, you audition. If they want you to screen-test, you screen-test. If they want you to come and tap-dance in their hallway, you tap-dance in their hallway," he says. (Recall that Spacey is actually a pretty good tap-dancer.) So he decided to write Woody Allen a letter and introduce himself. "And I sent him a Netflix subscription, because I want him to watch my work," Spacey says. Allen wrote back, saying he'd consider Spacey for roles down the road, and oh yeah, thanks for the Netflix. Allen said last year that he doesn't have a computer, but maybe he has a Roku? Apple TV? How is Woody Allen watching streaming Netflix? He doesn't really seem like an Xbox guy, but perhaps?
