Kevin Spacey Talks about his Role in House of Cards Three

Kevin Spacey performed the Shakespeare play along with 20 British and American actors about 200 times throughout the 10-month international tour.

"It was physically challenging and emotionally draining at times," Spacey told me the other day at the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills. "But I think what made it so energizing is just the fact that we were in a different theatre like every f--king couple of days. It was a massive undertaking, but I think what kept it alive for all of us was suddenly we were in new cities, new cultures and in new theatres."

"For those of us who are theatre rats, the big difference I guess is that theatre is an actor medium and film is not," said Spacey, who has been the artistic director of the Old Vic in London for 11 seasons. "In theatre, I can be better. In film, I can't because no matter how good I am in a movie, I'll never be any better. It's frozen in time. In theatre, I can be better."

House of Cards was apparently inspired by the ruthless Richard III.

On being asked how much more power crazy, Frank Underwood will turn in season three? "Pope?" Spacey said with a little laugh. "The presidency is one thing, but how about Pope Francis?"

According to Spavey, the show’s writer-producer Beau Willimon and producer David Fincher have a “desire to see just how dark that well is and how deep does it go. We have miles to go before we sleep."

During the recently held International Indian Films Awards in Florida, Spacey along with Indian actors Shahid Kapoor and actress Deepika Padukone were dressed in traditional clothing and danced to a bollywood number.

"That was fun," Spacey said. "I was delighted to be able to accommodate them. They said they wanted to teach me the dance and I said, 'Sure.’
