Movie star Kevin Spacey will launch his second season as artistic director of London's Old Vic Theatre by taking on William Shakespeare.

The AMERICAN BEAUTY star will play the lead in RICHARD II with acclaimed theatre director Trevor Nunn taking charge of the project.

The play will take Spacey back to his roots - he made his professional debut in HENRY IV PART I, while training at the Julliard school in New York.
