American actor Kevin Spacey is reportedly in talks with fellow Oscar-winner Russell Crowe to star in a play at his London theatre.

The AMERICAN BEAUTY star - the artistic director of the Old Vic theatre - is currently in Sydney, Australia filming his role as LEX LUTHOR in Superman RETURNS and took time out to visit his La Confidential co-star, who lives in nearby Coff's Harbour.

An insider tells British newspaper Daily Mirror, "Kevin told Russell that too much was getting in the way of his reputation lately and Russ should take to the stage, and remind everyone he is one of the great actors of his generation."
