Kevin Spacey today hijacked his own promo for new gambling film 21 to slam the BBC for giving certain West End musicals 13 weeks of free publicity disguised as reality TV shows.

Whilst recognising that they helped promote West End theatre in general he's clearly got the hump that it's the camp musicals hogging the limelight and cashing in on ticket sales rather than the more serious plays running at theatres like his own (highly camp, grande dame) manor, The Old Vic.

Rumours that Spacey's office are currently working on pitches for play based, recruit a rising star TV shows along the lines of:

Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?

Here's to you, Mrs Robinson

and

Stellaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!

are unconfirmed.
