First look at Kevin Spacey's latest role as... a cat?

KEVIN Spacey just won a Screen Actors Guild Award for his acclaimed role in the Netflix drama House of Cards.

In a surprising turn, the Oscar winner will go from the complicated character of Frank Underwood to voicing a cat in the movie Nine Lives.

The first trailer has been released for the family film, which sees Spacey portray a businessman who becomes trapped in the body of a tomcat.

The cat is adopted by his family and named Mr Fuzzypants.

The film, which is yet to get an Australian release date, also stars Christopher Walken, Jennifer Garner and Robbie Amell and is directed by Men in Black's Barry Sonnenfeld.
