Until now.

House of Cards President Michel Gill Talks the Evil of Frank Underwood

Originally posted 03/04/2014 08:00AM

It's not easy going up against Frank Underwood.

As the newly minted Vice President on Netflix's House of Cards, Underwood (played by Kevin Spacey) is the worst kind of political shark – he has to keep moving upward, or else he dies. In the second season, Underwood's main target is his own commander in chief, Garrett Walker, played by Broadway veteran Michel Gill. A mild-mannered pushover, Walker spends the season caught in the middle of a political war between Underwood and his longtime mentor, energy titan Raymond Tusk ...

(Major House of Cards spoilers below!)

… until the two men eventually team up and force him to resign from office, leaving Underwood the most powerful man in the world. It's an ignominious end for any pol, made doubly ironic by the fact that Walker was one of the few House of Cards operatives to show any sign of a conscience.

We spoke to Gill about playing the president, how House of Cards is like Shakespeare, and why viewers might be a little too tough on his character.

Kevin Spacey Says Political Insiders Call House of Cards '99 Percent True'

Originally posted 02/16/2014 03:20PM

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.

House of Cards: Kevin Spacey Sparkles in Season 2

Politics, as the saying goes, is the art of the possible, the attainable, but cable shows have to aim and hit higher than that – especially if they star Kevin Spacey and happen to be season 2 of House of Cards.

The political melodrama that launched original programming on the House of Netflix is back – all 13 episodes are available Friday – but the first four episodes made available for review suggest that show is off its game, at least initially. And the game is everything here.

Oh, before we get started: Netflix has been very concerned about spoilers, and with good reason. There's at least one thwopping surprise, and you'll want it to fall on you like an angrily resistant turkey dropped unsuspectingly on your head. So those odd crackles and thumps you hear will be me beating about the bush.

When the highly anticipated second season of House of Cards drops Friday, actress Kate Mara will be a typical viewer ready to binge-watch.

SPOILER ALERT: This post divulges key plot details from season 1 of Netflix's House of Cards

Don't have Valentine's Day plans? Now you do! Netflix's House of Cards returns for its second season on Feb. 14.

Granted, Francis Underwood's Washington, D.C., isn't brimming with the best relationship material, but you're sure to find someone you'll love ... to hate. Kevin Spacey, Robin Wright and the rest of the House of Cards cast make the misdeeds of The West Wing look like a Bingo game.
