The 'House of Cards' star and theatre legend stepped down from his role at one of London's oldest theatres after more than ten years.
Stars from throughout the world of theatre came together to praise Kevin Spacey as he stepped down as artistic director of London’s The Old Vic after more than a decade in the role.
In an event hosted by ‘Downton Abbey’ star Hugh Bonneville, the likes of Elizabeth McGovern, Jeremy Irons and Eddie Izzard paid tribute to Spacey’s contributions to reviving the fortunes of the Old Vic, at which he took the reins in 2003. He now vacates to make way for Matthew Warchus, who is set to unveil his opening season later this week.
Recorded tributes were also included from James Bond director Sam Mendes, Sir Elton John and even former American President Bill Clinton, and there were a handful of musical performances by Sting and Annie Lennox.
House of Cards is back. Again.
In the least surprising television news of the week, Netflix's signature political drama House of Cards has been renewed for season 4. The drama series is coming of wins at the Golden Globe and SAG Awards - for its star Kevin Spacey.

House of Cards season 3 is here. It's here! Go get it! On Netflix! Should you have somehow forgotten the events of season 2, Kevin Spacey's Frank Underwood and his wife Claire are in the White House as President and First Lady.

However, Frank has inherited a White House rocked by scandal and to complicate things further, Rachel - the former call girl who was connected to the death of Cory Stoll's character - is now missing after attacking Doug and leaving him for dead.

The 53-year-old actor previously received eight Golden Globe nominations before winning best actor in a television Series for 'House of Cards' at Sunday's award ceremony.
After receiving eight Golden Globe nominations in the past, Kevin Spacey was finally victorious at Sunday evening's star-studded awards ceremony, held at The Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles, as he took home the win for best actor in a television Series for 'House of Cards.'
Spacey dropped the f-bomb after winning a Golden Globe for best actor
While addressing the audience in the Southern accent of his character from the dark political thriller, the 55-year-old actor said, "This is just the beginning of my revenge."
House of Cards. It's happening, guys. It's really happening.
Attention: there’s a new trailer out for House of Cards Season 3. As such, we must observe and discuss. The clip is a rather stress-inducing piece of promo, with an industrial musical theme vaguely reminiscent of early Nine Inch Nails playing in the background as the drama unfolds.
Netflix. Where your social life comes to die.
The “drama” in this case is the Underwoods trying to run a country as the newly appointed POTUS and FLOTUS, while their world crumbles around them like... almost like a house of cards or something.

Like The Hangover, Horrible Bosses was a movie no one really wanted to see a sequel to, but here it is anyway: the same film, but even more inane. It is also likely to make plenty of money from audiences looking for mindless entertainment on a Saturday night. Although "mindless" seems almost complimentary when a movie is as idiotic as this one is. There's so little to its plot that the whole film seems to evaporate before the end of the climactic chase scene.
It's been a couple of years since Nick, Kurt and Dale (Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day) tried to solve their problems by trying to kill their bosses. Instead, they've become inventors, and have just sold their Shower Buddy to a popular catalogue company owned by Bert (Christoph Waltz). They go all out to fill his order, putting their necks on the line, and Bert leaves them hanging there. Faced with the prospect of losing everything, they again consult their criminal pal Jones (Jamie Foxx), who helps them launch a "kidnaping". The idea is to grab Bert's son Rex (Chris Pine) and demand a ransom to cover their debts. But Rex takes over the operation, asking for a lot more cash and causing a lot more chaos. They also run into a couple of their old bosses: sex-crazed Julia (Jennifer Aniston) is still determined to sleep with Dale, while Harken (Kevin Spacey) can still freak them out from behind bars.
Director-writer Anders and cowriter Morris use almost the exact same formula this time, going for laughs in a carefully plotted caper in which everything that can go wrong does. Although instead of merely being inept, these people are all morons. Bateman's Nick is essentially the straight man in the movie, and even he fails to notice that they've borrowed and spent a vast sum of cash without even a simple contract with Bert. Meanwhile, Kurt and Dale are mind-achingly stupid, bungling every single moment so completely that it's hard to see them as functioning adults. Pine isn't much better, but at least we haven't seen this schtick from him before, and he's rather good at it.

Netflix is branching out to Australia and New Zealand, though subscribers down under will not be able to access 'House of Cards' or 'Orange is the New Black'.
Netflix Inc is to launch its streaming service in Australia and New Zealand in March, with domestic rivals already shaping up for a fight. Netflix had been expected to expand into the territories for some time and the move continues its international expansion - which now reaches 50 million people.

Kevin Spacey will swap Democrats for Republicans, Frank Underwood for Richard Nixon in 'Elvis and Nixon'.
Kevin Spacey and Michael Shannon have been cast as Richard Nixon and Elvis Presley in Elvis and Nixon - a historical drama based on a real meeting between the legendary musician and one-time President.
Kevin Spacey will play President Richard Nixon in Liza Johnson's 'Elvis and Nixon'
The movie is set to be directed by Liza Johnson (Hateship Loveship, Return) from a script from actor Cary Elwes and Hanala and Joey Sagal.
In the wake of their struggle to murder their bosses in the first film, 'Horrible Bosses 2' sees Nick (Jason Bateman), Dale (Charlie Day) and Kurt (Jason Sudeikis) attempting to set up their own company. When a rival investor (Christoph Waltz) tries to put them out of business, they put their previous criminal past to use and kidnap the investor's son, Rex (Chris Pine), in an attempt to blackmail him. Rex is impressed by their plan, and decides to help them scam his father, while steadily escalating the severity of their crime. As Rex continues to drag the three friends into a battle with his father, they find themselves crossing paths with Detective Hatcher (Jonathan Banks) and Dr. Julia Harris (Jennifer Anniston), one of the previous film's horrible bosses.

We probably shouldn't read too much into Netflix's Emmy snub - its shows were up against stronger competition. Oh, and they have a new ad.
Netflix probably didn't have any deserved winners of major Emmy awards on Monday night (August 25, 2014). 'House of Cards' - which is fast becoming pure, unadulterated fun more than anything else - was never going to beat 'Breaking Bad' in the outstanding drama category and although 'Modern Family' was the surprise winner of best comedy, 'Orange is the New Black' still had to beat the far superior 'Veep'. Still, it must have felt like two steps back for executives at the streaming service, which has poured cash into quality original content in recent years.

Nevertheless, the future is bright for Netflix and a glossy new ad featuring Ricky Gervais confirms just how far the service has grown to effectively become ingrained in modern culture. The clip opens with Gervais lounging around in front of the television, musing, "You know when you're watching your favorite Netflix show and after five straight episodes, you want to be in it?"
Breaking Bad has won five of the nine categories in the Primetime Emmy Drama Awards. The series, which finished its run last year, dominated this section of the awards and won the award for Outstanding Drama Series amongst others. Here is a quick analysis of each drama category.
The Primetime Emmy Awards were held on Monday evening (25th August) in Los Angeles and there was stiff competition in every category although the results were ultimately highly predictable.

Lewd, cringe-worthy and hilarious: the 'Horrible Bosses' sequel is coming this winter.
The trailer has been released for the upcoming comedy sequel, Horrible Bosses 2, giving us our first glimpse of the follow-up to the successful and hilarious 2011 movie. Number two (yes, there are poop jokes in the movie) sees Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, and Charlie Day reprise their roles as the unhappy workers who find themselves in even more of a pickle than before.
After having tried to murder their respective bosses in the previous film, Nick, Dale and Kurt are now under three new bosses who are all as equally mean or deranged. The trio decide that they'll start their own business so that they don't have to take orders from superiors ever again.
Having previously got involved with a scheme to kill their abusive bosses (a plan which didn't go exactly as they thought), Nick, Dale and Kurt think they can do anything. Now under three new bosses that are equally mean, they decide that they want to start up their own business so that they don't have to take orders from superiors ever again. Everything seems to be in place until a cunning investor forces them to lose control of their entrepreneurial plans. With no legal standing and no money, the trio turn to their trusty crime consultant who suggests they start to be a little more ruthless if they want to pull off their latest scheme; to kidnap the investor's son and hold him for ransom. Nick, Dale and Kurt are hoping that everything will go to plan this time - but that's looking unlikely.

Kevin Spacey has denied rumours that he will be the next Bond villain, even though it seems he may have started the rumours himself.
Kevin Spacey fans were sincerely disappointed to hear that the actor wouldn’t be appearing as the villain in the next James Bond movie, which is due to be released in 2015. Spacey explained to BBC news: “I don’t know why people keep writing about this. I’ve been offered no role, I’ve never read a script, no, I am not doing the next James Bond movie.” He added, “I don’t know who started the rumour but stop it.”
Kevin Spacey has denied rumours that he will be playing the next Bond villain
Well, actually, it seems as though he started the rumour himself, back in 2012. When it was suggested that he would be up for the role of Bond villain, he told the Evening Standard: “I would hope [Bond producers] the Broccolis agree [that I would make a good Bond villain] and that Sam [Mendes] is going to do the next one. That would be a lot of fun. I adore him. I had some of the most seminal experiences of my career with him, both a decade ago with American Beauty and last year with Richard III.”

Spacey doesn't know what's going on, but he knows he's not in Bond 24
It’s hard to call this sad news when it was never news to begin with, but Kevin Spacey won’t be terrorising agent 007 in the next James Bond movie. The House of Cards confirmed as much to The BBC in a recent interview.
Kevin Spacey has ruled himself out of a Bond villain role
"I don't know why people keep writing about this," said Spacey, referencing the rumors that he was in line for a Bond villain role. "I've been offered no role, I've never read a script, no, I am not doing the next James Bond movie."
Spacey became animated when talking about his beloved London.
Kevn Spacey’s liberal use of the English language was there for all to see and hear on Wednesday’s (June 4) Newsnight. Host, Jeremy Paxman, did his best to warn the audience, but the House of Cards actor has clearly reached that point in his career.
Kevin Spacey presumerably knows flat-caps and converses aren't cool and doesn't care
"Be warned, though. He likes the odd Anglo-Saxonism," forewarned Paxman, who has recently decided to hang up his clipboard and leave Newsnight after 25 years at the helm. And when the conversation drifted towards the British capital, Spacey let fly.

Please make sure all mobile phones are off for the duration of the performance
Kevin Spacey isn’t one to shy away while irksome folk lurk within his periphery. So when a theatregoer neglected to turn off his-or-her mobile phone or even limit the device to silence during a performance of ‘Clarence Darrow’ at London’s Old Vic, Spacey wasted no time in bestowing the requisite discomfiture.
Kevin Spacey at the American Museum of Moving Image Honors
"If you don't answer that, I will!" barked Spacey while remaining in character as Clarence Darrow, the American lawyer and leading member of the American Civil Liberties Union best known for defending teenage thrill killers. Warm applause from the audience ensued while, presumably, the embarrassed patron saw to their faux pas with gusto.

Some we can all agree were truely unexpected, others, well there's always going to be someone who say they saw it coming.

If the people of India are indeed stealing 'House of Cards', then Spacey/Underwood are peeved.
Kevin Spacey has a new party trick, he does impressions of his indefatigable, uncompromising and rutless character on 'House of Cards,' Frank Underwood who – and look away if you don’t want to know what happens – becomes President of The United states via a regimented diet of backstabbing, conniving plans, murder and weird threesomes.
He gave us a little bit of Underwood when he came out to introduce the honorary Oscars back in March, and now India – and more specifically, its House of Cards fans - have been subject to a slice of the politician, but this time it’s far less colloquial.
Netflix's 'House of Cards' won a Peabody and appears to be going from strength-to-strength.
It was a superb evening for Netflix at the 73rd Peabody Awards this week, with the streaming service's two hit dramas 'House of Cards' and 'Orange is the New Black' both winning the prestigious gongs.
Peabody recognises shows based on excellence - there are no set categories and everything from scripted drama to news reports are considered. 'House of Cards' stars Kevin Spacey as the ruthless politician Frank Underwood and his scheming wife, played by Robin Wright. The show - which won the first Emmy award for an online-only show - has been re-commissioned for a third season.

Mindy Kaling may have been asked the stupidest red carpet question ever, which other celebs have been victims of red carpet idiocy?
“Who are you wearing?”, “Are you excited to be here?”, “Do you want to win?” are just a few of the inane questions that get yelled at the stars as they walk down the red carpet. But every now and then a question gets asked that is so mind-blowingly idiotic, or eyebrow-raisingly nonsensical that you just have to ask, how are these people allowed within 100 feet of celebrities? And more to the point, who thought it was a good idea to give them a microphone and put them on the television? Usually the answer is E! news.
Mindy was asked to specify what race she found attractive
For instance, E! news correspondent Alicia Quarles recently asked The Mindy Project star Mindy Kaling what race of guys she likes. Yes, you read that right. “Who’s your type?” she asked Kaling, who seemed confused by the question. “Good looking?”, Kaling responded with the quizzical intonation of someone who is confounded. This wasn’t enough for Quarles though, who continued “So, any colour?”. It’s more than a little intrusive to begin with to ask the star what kind of men she likes, but to demand a race be included in her bizarre interrogation is just too much.

The Ellen DeGeneres Oscars Selfie: did Jennifer Lawrence have the best pose or was it Bradley Cooper, Brad Pitt...or Kevin Spacey?
Pretty much everyone has seen the Ellen Degeneres Oscars selfie by now; the celeb-packed pic that sent the Twittersphere into melt-down and quickly became the most retweeted image of all time. The Oscars host somehow gathered the cream of the awards' red carpet for last night's impromptu snap, which has become the evening's most shared and talked about image.
Ellen DeGeneres Oscar Selfie Has Become The Most-Shared Image On Twitter.
The glory of the Oscars selfie lies in the pure and unabashed joy seen on every one of its twelve featured Hollywood stars' faces. Gone are the pouts, poses and glowers of the red carpet pap-snap and instead we have a bunch of gorgeous and joyous actors ready to party at the year's biggest movie awards.
How does Obama have time to watch this when Underwood barely has time to SPOILER ALERT - just kidding, no spoilers here Barack.
Barack Obama’s inauguration as the 44th President of The United States of America was a tremendous stepping-stone for the western world; a black man in charge of the free world - it was exhilarating. His reputation hasn’t remained entirely unblemished, though, and with a string of political controversies plaguing his tenure at the oval office, opinion isn’t so rosy any more.
Obama is really into his highly rated TV
One of Obama’s integral selling points to voters is his communication with young people. He was supported by the likes of Matt Damon and Jay-Z in his election campaign back in 2008, and before his win in 2009 to become America’s first black president, the youth were firmly behind him.
All of this; everything I’ve just said, means nothing because Barack Obama watches 'House of Cards' and 'True Detective' – my two favourite things at the moment. Just think – for a second – think about what that means.
It means someone, somewhere, sorted out a Netflix account for Mr. Obama
There’s no way Obama logged on to Netflix, typed his card details and started a free one-month trial with Netflix. Some spotty assistant did it, and knows the details. They’re probably firstname.lastname@example.org, and the password is probably democraticz. Just imagine that.
It means Obama watches Kevin Spacey manipulate the political landscape, and finds it entertaining
Obama loves House of Cards. He Tweeted out telling people not to spoil it as Netflix put whole seasons of their original content at once. We’re obviously choosing to ignore the fact that Obama probably did this as a publicity stunt to maintain the vote of the youth – old people don’t even know what House of Cards is, so ignore it and assume he’s talking about a book.
'House of Cards' season 2 introduced a Chinese plot-line, though it seems the censor-happy nation are pretty comfortable with it.
'House of Cards' season two has dodged the censors in China and is available to stream on the country's Sohu.com streaming service. A communist nation that does not offer the vote to is people, China appears to have taken to Frank Underwood's ruthless brand of politics and the second season's edgy Chinese storyline.

'House of Cards' season 2 has opened with a surprising death. The full second season was released on Netflix yesterday (14th February) and has already made headlines owing to its shockingly brilliant first episode.
The opening episode of House of Cards season 2 will definitely go down as one of the most shocking in television history: one of the main characters has been brutally killed off; Claire is desperate for a baby; and Frank celebrates a subdued birthday. If you haven't seen it yet, stop reading now! Spoilers included!
Kevin Spacey at the screening of House of Cards season 2 in L.A.
Frank's usual narrative directly to the camera only begins in the last minute and he leaves the audience with a menacing "Welcome Back." This sudden address is almost as shocking as the writer's decision to kill one of the main characters. Zoe Barnes (Kate Mara) and her journalist friends are attempting to uncover the truth about Congressman Peter Russo's (Corey Stoll) death. They know Frank is somehow connected and Zoe confronts him at a secret meeting in a subway station. Unfortunately for Zoe, Frank will do anything to ensure he's not under suspicion and pushes his former lover in front of a passing train.
'House of Cards' season 2 is finally here.
You may have assumed President Barack Obama had other things to worry about this weekend, but, no, he's just like us. He'll be slipping into some comfortable trousers and watching House of Cards season 2 in its entirety. Hell, he might even catch up on the last episode of True Detective, which he missed.
Kevin Spacey [L] and Robyn Wright [R] in 'House of Cards' Season 2
Yes, Netflix's political drama is back on the box and viewers everywhere are settling down for marathon sessions. It's reasonably doable to chow down on all 13 episode in one go and it seems Mr Obama is ready to do just that.
'House of Cards' is coming back for a third season.
We're still over a week away from the Valentines' Day release of 'House of Cards' season two, but Netflix bosses have seen plenty enough of the new instalment to commission a third season.
Kevin Spacey [L] and Kate Mara [R] in 'House of Cards
The drama, which confirmed Netflix as a major distributor of quality original programming, won critical praise for its tale of a corrupt congressman played by Kevin Spacey trying to scheme his way into a top job at the White House.

The 'Breaking Bad' actor was humble...and musical!
If there was ever any doubt over whether Bryan Cranston was rightfully awarded the Outstanding Performance by an Actor in a Drama award at the 20th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards on Saturday, those doubts will have surely been quashed by his amazing, and some might say tuneful, acceptance speech.
A True Dude: Bryan Cranston Was Humbled By His Second Individual SAG Award.
The gleeful actor bounded up on to the stage after his win had been announced and gripping the trophy tightly in his hands, he began to show Breaking Bad fans a side of Heisenberg that that they would have never expected. "IIII won a SAG awaaard," sang Cranston operatically to laughter from the audience.

Newcomers like 'House of Cards' and 'Master of Sex' replace the old guards like 'Mad Men' and 'Homefront' in the TV noms
The nominations for the 2014 Golden Globe Awards were revealed this week and although there were few surprises in the movie nominations; in the television categories however, it's time for change in the established order of critically-acclaimed TV. Former nomination regulars like Mad Men and Homefront are nowhere to be seen in the nominees lists, replaced instead by the new order of critically-acclaimed shows.
Master of Sex, along with House of Cards, is now the show to beat
Master of Sex and House of Cards now look like the shows to beat, with Breaking Bad making what will be its final appearance at the Golden Globes with the series ending this year. This comes just a year after Homeland achieved the impressive feat of winning Best Drama Series, Best Male Actor and Best Female Actor all in one night, although this does mark the second year in a row that the 2007-2009 winner Mad Men has not appeared in the Best Drama category.
Netflix's 'House of Cards' To Return For Second Season Next Year
Get ready to start binge-watching some high-quality drama once again, as Netflix's original series House of Cards is returning to the online streaming site for its second season. The Kevin Spacey vehicle will be back on 14 February, 2014, with Netflix making the entire, 13-episode season available to stream from then.
The series was a hit last time around
Academy Award-winner Spacey will be back as the despicable US Senator Francis Underwood, who will continue to slither his way through the dark side of Washington D.C. to rise to the top of the political ladder, negotiating past all the greed, sex, love and corruption that lies in his way. Fellow Emmy-nominee Robin Wright will also be back for the second season, returning as Spacey's equally devious wife Claire Underwood, with director David Fincher and screenwriters Beau Willimon and Eric Roth all returning behind the scenes.

House of Cards season 2 will be available from Valentines' Day 2014.
House of Cards season 2 will premiere on Valentines' Day 2014, with all 13 episodes available straight away on Netflix. Executive produced by David Fincher, the second season of the classy political drama will continue to focus on Francis Underwood's (Kevin Spacey) ruthless rise to fame as journalist Zoe Barnes (Kate Mara) inches ever closer to the truths about his crimes.
Kevin Spacey Is Back As Frank Underwood in House of Cards Season 2
Though Spacey, Mara and Robin Wright are all back for season two, there's also some new names joining the cast including Jayne Atkinson (The Following), Gil Birmingham (The Lone Ranger) Joanna Going (Mad Men) Derek Cecil (Treme) and Costance Zimmer (The Newsroom).

Can season 2 even maintain the quality of season 1? We'll find out in early 2014.
Beau Willimon’s broody political thriller House of Cards was a success in its first season, with Kevin Spacey and co helping to bring streamed television to the forefront of the medium’s appeal.
It was no surprise, given the critical response and the record-breaking Emmy performance, that season two would shortly follow, but Netflix’s confidence in the show seems to have skyrocketed with talk of a third season commission already on the… cards.
Kevin Spacey's Frank Underwood could be back to fight more political battles after season two of 'House of Cards'.
Netflix's chief content officer Ted Sarandos has hinted that the service's big-budget original drama House of Cards will run past its scheduled two seasons. Former House of Cards executive producer Rick Cleveland said last month that the Emmy-winning political drama would wrap up after its second season, though that no longer appears to be the case.
"Our intent is that the show keep going for sure," said Sarandos at Film Independent's 9th annual confab on Saturday, according to Deadline, "It was a 26-episode commitment. It was not our intent that it just run for two seasons.Talks are in progress right now."

Netflix are still going strong, building up their portfolio every day
Having proved that online-only content streaming doesn’t just have to apply to shows gone by, Netflix are seeking more success with original programming, ordering a brand new thriller from the guys behind Damages. Having aired on FX, The 101 and DirecTV, Damages has been a real sleeping giant of TV thrillers, quietly accumulating a dedicated following and positive reviews along the way.
Now, the show’s creators, Todd A. Kessler, Daniel Zelman and Glenn Kessler are on board with Netflix to helm a new thriller.
Will season two make further Emmys history?
If you’ve watched House of Cards, then you’ll know Kevin Spacey’s character – the unflinching Frank Underwood – doesn’t take kindly to anything less than perfection.
Spacey's strong performance wasn't enough to bag an Emmy.
And while the moody political drama, based in Washington and shown exclusively on the streaming service Netflix, made history with its Emmy nominations, a sole award for David Fincher in the directorial discipline wouldn’t have left the scheming politician with much doubt: next year must be a victorious one.
Neil Patrick Harris has discussed how much he enjoys presenting the Primetime Emmys. This year will be the second time the 'How I met Your Mother' actor has presented the award ceremony.
Neil Patrick Harris will be hosting the Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday and seems to be excited to do so! This will be the second time Harris has presented the awards, and the 65th time the award ceremony has been held.
Neil Patrick Harris will be presenting the awards for the second time.
Harris has spoken of his love for television and that he is pleased to be involved in an event which honours it. As reported by USA Today, Harris said "I love TV and the motley crew of people that are part of it. With so many TV offerings of every type, I think that makes for a better viewing experience of television than ever, and I'm happy to be the guy in charge of honouring that."

The star of the Netflix series 'House of Cards' has believes that "binge-watching" and streaming will become the norm for TV viewers in the near-future, signalling the end of conventional television
Kevin Spacey delivered the James MacTaggart Memorial Lecture at this week's Edinburgh Television Festival and during his speech he didn't give the usual garb of how TV bosses have continued to bring quality television to viewers over the last year, but instead sent out a warning to those still preoccupied with the old ways of TV consumption. He claimed that the old ways of watching shows in front of the television were coming to an end and a new era of internet-based programming would soon be the norm, where "binge viewing" and freedom of selection exist over scheduled timetables.
Spacey says 'the times they are a-changing' for TV
The speech, which The Telegraph have reprinted in it's entirety on their website, was full of enthusiasm and vigor for the future of TV, but it is (apparently) a future that will look nothing like the state of television from, say, ten years ago. The future of TV, he claimed, will develop from the current craze of readily available programmes available on streaming sites like Netfilx - the website that aired his much-praised starring vehicle House of Cards. That particular show has become one of the most discussed programmes in recent memory, and for good reason too; not just because it was well written and expertly acted, but because it was presented in a way nearly all programmes will be in the near-future (Spacey claims).
