Kevin Spacey tried to hide his bald spot with spray-on hair at the premiere of his new movie Beyond The Sea on Saturday (11SEP04).

Onlookers at the TORONTO INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL were amazed to see the AMERICAN BEAUTY star sporting a dyed black scalp.

In the film, Spacey plays Bobby Darin, one of the RAT PACK musical stars of the 1960s and 1970s who found fame with hits such as SPLISH SPLASH and DREAM LOVER.

Spacey says he grew up loving Darin's music but the idea of a film took hold after he learned about the singer's testing upbringing, including almost dying from rheumatic fever.
