Kevin Spacey’s characters aren't typically in want of a cuddle, but the actor displayed his more affectionate side on Saturday, tweeting a photo of himself with his adorable new dog (and nose-nibbler), Boston.
Spacey named the pup in honor of the city, which he visited last week to spend time with patients injured in the bombing at the Boston marathon and officers at a local police station, according to The Boston Herald.
This isn't the first time Spacey has goofed off for the public in recent weeks. While jogging in Boston he "photobombed" a woman in front of the George Washington statue.
