He plays the treacherous president in an aggressive race for re-election on House of Cards, but veteran actor Kevin Spacey avoids mixing talk of real politics and just playing the role on the Netflix series.
Spacey and the rest of the popular drama’s cast were in Washington, D.C. on Monday for the show’s fourth season premiere at the nation capital’s Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery.
The 56-year-old Academy Award winner repeatedly deflected questions from reporters on the red carpet asking him to weigh in on the 2016 presidential race.
“It’s sort of silly to compare the two. They’re both a little bit unpredictable in that audiences have no idea where we’re gonna go and what we’re gonna do, and I think that’s part of the enjoyment that an audience has — they don’t really know and in the real world, I mean now it’s becoming a little bit more predictable, what’s going to happen,” he said.
“At the same time,” Spacey added, “I happen to believe that we get what we deserve.”
“It’s really fun to blur fact and fiction to the point where no one f—–g knows what’s going on,” Spacey said.
