Open casting call for House of Cards Season 4

Netflix recently made the announcement that the popular drama has been renewed for another season. House of Cardsis a scripted Netflix series about a scheming politician, played by Kevin Spacey and his equally conniving wife. The series stars Kevin Spacey, Michael Gill and Robin Wright. Season 3 left fans with a large question on their minds…. will Claire actually leave Frank.  In the season 3 finale, Claire told Frank she was moving out of the White House and leaving him… maybe for good. Fans will have to wait until 2016 to get their answers. No official release date has yet been announced but the show will most likely premiere during the spring.

Season 3 saw Frank Underwood rise to the Presidency just to be equally hated by both parties with Congress working to block him at every turn. He also may have met his match in Russian President Victor Petrov, played by Lars Mikkelsen. “House of Cards”  is based on a BBC show of the same name and is produced by David Fincher, Kevin Spacey, Joshua Donen, Beau Willimon, Eric Roth, Michael Dobbs, Dana Brunetti, and Andrew Davies.
