Kevin Spacey joins 'Horrible Bosses.' Can he be more infuriating than Bill Lumbergh?
Image Credit: Sylvain Gaboury/PR Photos; Everett CollectionI say absolutely. Kevin Spacey is a master, and after revisiting 1995’s The Usual Suspects for last week’s Time Capsule gallery, I miss him. Spacey’s been cast as a horrible boss in Horrible Bosses, a workplace comedy in which three friends (Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, and Jason Sudiekis) are so frustrated by their jobs that they decide to kill their boss. So it’s like Office Space, but Lumbergh is the copy machine.
I finally watched 2009’s Moon over the weekend and Spacey’s quiet, sardonic, know-it-all demeanor made me want to kill someone even then. And he was playing a robot! Just his voice did that! I guess this post is my way of confessing to the world that I killed someone. I was going to fall onto my knees in the streets of St. Petersburg, but we have this nationally read blog, which is so much easier. Half-baked Dostoevsky reference in PopWatch: Surprising, annoying, awesome? The answer is D.
Who would you want to kill more if he were your boss: Kevin Spacey or Gary Cole?
