When Kevin Spacey’s ashes are sent back to his hometown, SPACE, which role of his will appear in the first line of his obituary? He won a Golden Globe and was nominated for an Emmy in consecutive years for his work as Frank Underwood in House of Cards. He’s taken home two Academy Awards, Best Supporting Actor for The Usual Suspects and Best Actor in the embarrassing-in-retrospect American Beauty. But if I were writing Spacey’s life story — “…people spent a lot of time wondering if he was gay. THE END.” — I’d give the honor to Se7en, David Fincher’s psychological thriller about the septet of deadly sins where Spacey plays John Doe.

This is the part where I’d say “spoiler alert,” if we weren’t talking about a 20-year-old movie.
