Spacey's Darin Portraits

Actor KEVIN SPACEY has developed such an obsession with singer BOBBY DARIN, he's commissioned six oil portraits of himself playing the singer in his latest movie.

The Hollywood star - who brings the crooner back to life in BEYOND THE SEA - modelled for the paintings for over half a year, which ultimately cost him $90,000 (GBP47,360).

Artist WILLIAM QUIGLEY says, "He sat for me for over six months.

"Kevin was very intense as a model. We started off just doing two canvases, one with an open collar and the other in black tie. But then the project mushroomed."
