At 54-years-old, Kevin Spacey won't take just any film role. In fact, to the majority of Hollywood, the Oscar winner has a few choice words.
"Unless it's Martin Scorsese, and it's a really significant role, f--k off," the actor says about his movie prospects these days.
"I'm not playing someone's brother. I'm not playing the station manager. I'm not playing the FCC chairman," he adds.

Over the past decade, Kevin has taken a vastly different approach to his career compared to most actors his age.
"People thought I was crazy 11 years ago when I moved to London and started a theater company. 'What is he doing? He's out of his mind,'" the thespian says of his role as artistic director at London's Old Vic Theatre Run.
"People thought we were crazy when we made the Netflix deal for House of Cards. 'They're out of their minds, it'll never work,'" he says of his Golden Globes-nominated drama. "I'm used to people thinking I'm nuts. And you know what? I kind of love it."
The American Beauty star is content with how life is going for him, even though his career hasn't always been smooth-sailing. But Kevin says he'd much rather be choosy with parts than participate in a "crap" film.
"There are a lot of [filmmakers] out there who offer roles to actors because they'll elevate their movie to a place the movie would never reach," he tells The Hollywood Reporter.
"They offer them a s--tload of money for a crap part, but it doesn't make the movie any better. And I'm not interested in elevating someone's crap movie."
A series that's anything but crap? The aforementioned House of Cards, whose second season is currently streaming on Netflix.
The New Jersey-native also recently finished filming Horrible Bosses 2 with Jennifer Aniston, Jason Sudeikis and Jason Bateman, set for release later this year.
