Alberto E. Rodriguez/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Former President Bill Clinton may have dropped a couple of House of Cards spoilers at a recent benefit concert, but the lead star of the Netflix series, Kevin Spacey, has no problem with that.
Clinton and Spacey were among the top names who attended Sting’s Rainforest Benefit Concert in New York City last Thursday night.
As he addressed the crowd, the 42nd U.S. president poked fun at Spacey’s character on House of Cards, Frank Underwood. He joked, “When I was president, people accused me of murder all the time! Made a show of investigating it! Spacey’s president for 15 minutes, and he gets away with murder!”
That last line contains two spoilers from the second season of House of Cards, which premiered in February: Spacey killing Kate Mara’s journalist character, Zoe Barnes, and his character making the jump from vice president to president.
Spacey normally discourages people from discussing spoilers, but he makes an exception in Clinton’s case. He pointed out to ABC News Radio that the event was not televised. He added, “If he wants to be the spoiler-in-chief that’s entirely up to him. He’s a good man, it was great of him to have shown up, and we had some fun on stage together.”
Much like he did at the Rainforest Benefit Concert, Spacey imitated Clinton: “I love that show because 99 percent of what they do in that show, it’s real. And the one percent they got wrong, you could never get an education bill passed that fast.”
Aside from House of Cards, you’ll soon be able to catch Spacey in the documentary NOW: in the Wings on a World Stage. He collaborated with his American Beauty director, Sam Mendes, on the film, which chronicles their touring production of the Shakespeare tragedy Richard III.
NOW: in the Wings on a World Stage will screen in select theaters and be made available for download on May 2. You can learn more about the film at KevinSpacey.com.
