THEY'RE PLAYING MY SONG? Spacey (with Kate Bosworth) did not score Beyond the Sea, despite an ad singing his praises

He acts, he directs, he...composes? Kevin Spacey certainly multitasked as director and star of the Bobby Darin biopic Beyond the Sea (Dec. 10); he even sings. But in a For Your Consideration Oscar ad in Oct. 27's Daily Variety, Lions Gate championed him for Best Actor and Best Original Score. Huh? Spacey's rep set the record straight: ''The film doesn't have an original score. They're all Bobby Darin songs.'' Does Spacey have to edit the ads as well?
