Kevin Spacey revealed that the upcoming fifth season of “House of Cards” is “one of the best” they’ve done.
“This year, in particular, there’s been a lot of commentary about how we can’t compete in the real world, so it’s not going to be as interesting and the show can’t possibly be as crazy as the real world,” said the 57-year-old actor on Monday. “And my answer to that is, just you wait. Just you wait.”
Spacey stars in the Netflix series as power-hungry South Carolina congressman Frank Underwood who connives his way to the presidency. Underwood conspires with his wife to amass power in Washington through blackmail and betrayal.
But despite his character’s manipulation to reach the top, Spacey encourages viewers to become involved in politics.
“It’s really worthwhile, it’s really worth doing,” said Spacey. “Whether that’s stuffing envelopes for something you believe in or finding out what your community center needs.”
Next month, Spacey will be hosting the Tony Awards on June 11. The telecast might also be the night where viewers will get to witness him sing and dance once again.
“Well you know there is a funny tradition in the Tony Awards where people sing and dance so who am I break the tradition?” he asked.
The fifth season of “House of Cards” premieres May 30 on Netflix.
