MORE says 99 percent of what’s seen on “House of Cards” is true.


As the star of Netflix’s political thriller, Spacey plays the corrupt and conniving President Frank Underwood. Spacey, who counts former President Clinton among his pals, tells Gotham magazine, while doing his best Clinton impression, “Kevin, 99 percent of what you do on that show is real.”

Continuing with his impersonation of the 42nd president, Spacey says, as Clinton, that there’s one aspect of the show that’s pure fiction. “The 1 percent you get wrong is you could never get an education bill passed that fast.”

Clinton isn’t the only president who’s professed his love of “House of Cards.” President Obama quipped in 2013 that he wished things in real-life Washington were “as ruthlessly efficient” as on the show.

While the entire third season of the series was released last month, Spacey says he’s not one to go on Netflix viewing sprees. "I’m not a binge-watcher myself,” he tells the mag, “but I understand the addiction completely.”
