Kevin Spacey - Kevin Spacey spoofs onscreen character
Kevin Spacey entertained US President Barack Obama and other guests at the White House Correspondents's Dinner by spoofing his character from 'House of Cards'
Kevin Spacey spoofed his 'House of Cards' character to entertain guests at the 2013 White House Correspondents' Dinner.
The two-time Academy Award winner - who plays Representative Frank Underwood in the hit Netflix series - took part in a funny sketch titled 'House of Nerds' at the star-studded event in Washington, D.C. on Saturday night (27.04.13).
The 53-year-old actor lobbied John McCain, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and other high profile politicians for the opening act, during which he took on his on-screen persona and said: ''I may lie, cheat and intimidate to get what I want, but at least I get the job done. So I hope some of you are taking notes.''
He then added: ''Have a wonderful evening. I'll see all of you at the Bloomberg Vanity Fair party -- that is, all of you that got an invite. Oh, and Mr. President, welcome to Nerd Prom.''
Guests at the prestigious event and after-party included Katy Perry, Nicole Kidman, Julie Bowen, Sofia Vergara, Michael Douglas, Jason Sudeikis and Olivia Wilde.
The 'Usual Suspects' star recently revealed he would hate to be a politician in real life because it would be too frustrating.
He previously said: ''I'm a person who likes to set a goal and then achieve it. I like to get things done.
''I would never walk into a profession where I'd [know] I was going to be frustrated for the rest of my life.''
Kevin also believes that the hard-hitting drama is not as far-fetched as he originally thought it would be.
He explained: ''We were in the middle of filming 'House of Cards' during a presidential election. I'd often go back to the hotel and turn on the TV, and think to myself, 'Our story lines aren't that crazy'.''
