Here’s something I don’t get to say everyday .. make sure you tune in for Kevin Spacey’s new political thriller… I have a small part. Ok.. it’s a tiny party but it’s kinda cool. You’ll find it in the second episode. Last Spring there was a call for local reporters to audition to be part of the HBOesque Netflix Series “House of Cards”. It’s the first of it’s kind. In fact Netflix cut a $100 million check to have rights to the show.. beating out other TV networks.
The director is one of my favorites David Fincher (Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Seven, Fight Club, The Social Network ). After my first cold read I got called back to read for Fincher. Talk about nerves. I guess it worked out .. because I got to return. I was so impressed with how detailed he is… giving tremendous attention to lighting, sound and even wardrobe. I changed blazers 4 times before we had a winner. At the end of the shoot he actually came to find me.. shook my hand and said nice job. Pretty awesome.
The show could end up being the biggest filming project Maryland has ever seen. The first 13 episodes will be available starting February 1st.. shooting for the next season is set to start this April. See the trailer below:
