Acclaimed political drama House of Cards counts a huge, loyal fan base, but star Kevin Spacey gets a special thrill when it comes a particular set of die-hards: real-life Beltway insiders who've given the show a big thumbs-up.
"This is my favorite comment I've heard: 'It's 99 percent accurate,' " Spacey, 54, told PEOPLE before the season 2 premiere Thursday, held at the Directors Guild of America headquarters in Los Angeles.
Of the 1 percent who aren't sold, Spacey said they gripe, among other things, "that you could never get an education bill passed that fast," referring to a key plot line in season 1 of the show, whose sophomore outing debuted Friday.

"Crazy Eyes" has decided to look the other way.
Julianne Hough, 25, sparked serious controversy when she covered her face in a very dark shade on Halloween to dress as Uzo Aduba's character Suzanne "Crazy Eyes" Warren from Orange Is the New Black.
And as Aduba tells it herself, the whole costume decision was an "unfortunate situation."

Laura Prepon has flown the coop.
Orange is the New Black, the Netflix original series that takes place in a women's prison, will lose one of its central characters, inmate Alex, played by Laura Prepon, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
While Prepon, 33, will no longer be a series regular, she still will return for season 2 in order to tie up any loose ends in her storyline. There also remains the possibility of a comeback in the future, says the trade publication.
"Our season is still developing and nothing is confirmed," a Netflix rep said in a statement. Season 2 of the series is currently in production.

The best news out of Thursday's Emmy Awards nominations is that newlywed Kerry Washington is up for best actress for Scandal.
I was worried that the ABC melodrama – about a beautiful political fixer with conflicted romantic feelings for a handsome, emotionally disturbed president – wouldn't be considered serious enough to merit attention.
Actually, now that I've written that out, I can see why the show might not be considered serious. It's ridiculous. And, in fact, it was shut out of the other top categories. (Although Dan Bucatinsky got a guest-actor nod.)
