Spacey bathes in ‘Sea’ of songs

Thesp-crooner treats auds to 'Splish Splash,' 'No War'

NEW YORK — Kevin Spacey transformed the Waldorf-Astoria’s Twilight Lounge into “the smallest nightclub in the world” when he crooned Bobby Darin tunes after the Dec. 8 Gotham preem of “Beyond the Sea.”

The enthusiastic, if chattering, audience, which included David Duchovny, Michael Stipe and Matt Dillon, was treated to such standards as “Splish Splash” and “We Don’t Want No War.”

Spacey, clearly enjoying himself told the crowd, ” I’ll stay up here as long as you want.”

The multi-hyphenate, who wrote, directed and produced the film, said he loved helming because “I’m responsible. If this movie works it’s because of a whole lot of people who did an incredible job, and if it’s not there’s nobody to blame but me. And I like that.”

Lions Gate’s Michael Burns joked that Spacey had done so much for the film that he was “convinced he did craft services as well.”
