Who Said It: Quotes From 'House Of Cards' Frank Underwood And Pr
Season 4 of 'House of Cards' hits Netflix this Friday, March 4 and with it comes the return of everyone's favorite ruthless politician, Francis "Frank" J. Underwood. One of the reasons for 'House of Cards' overwhelming success over its first three seasons is no doubt the supreme acting chops of actor Kevin Spacey, the man who brings Underwood to life. But a big assist also goes to the 'House of Cards' writing staff, as Frank Underwood is one of the most quotable characters on television today. Whether he's attacking his latest enemy or breaking the fourth wall to coldly inform the audience ...

30 Powerful Frank Underwood Quotes From House Of Cards
House of Cards Season 3 debuts on Netflix February 27. The first two seasons have helped put Netflix's original programming on the map, and expectations are high for the show as Frank Underwood finally assumes the Presidency.

Much of House of Cards success can be attributed to the phenomenal performance by the actor who plays Frank Underwood, Oscar-winner Kevin Spacey. Whether you love or hate that sort of Southern accent he takes on for the role, there's no doubt that Spacey's words as Frank Underwood always carry a level of gravitas to them.

Seven Great Actors Who Excel In The Movies And On TV

Double Threats: 7 Great Actors Who Excel In The Movies And On Te
The hierarchy when it comes to acting in Hollywood has historically always placed more importance and gravitas on the work of actors who have appeared on the silver screen when compared to their TV counterparts.

Legendary actors who got their start on TV like Bill Murray (Saturday Night Live), Michael Douglas (The Streets of San Francisco) and Denzel Washington (St. Elsewhere) were only said to have "made it" as huge stars once they were able to transition into movies.

But a strange thing has happened over the last few years - mega movie stars are falling all over themselves to try and ge...

Kevin Spacey
Kevin Spacey's next big role won't at your local theater or on NetFlix – it will be on your Playstation.

A trailer for the upcoming Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare features Spacey as a powerful politician, not unlike his role as Frank Underwood in House of Cards, delivering a monologue on democracy.

House of Cards
Netflix has renewed its hit political drama House of Cards for a third season.

The show, which stars Kevin Spacey, is just over a week away from the season two premiere, but the success of the show has led bosses at the streaming video giant to renew it for another year.

2013 Emmy Awards Predictions: Who Are The Favorites To Win?

2013 Emmy Awards Predictions

It’s been a while since we’ve had such a wild card Emmy season. Last year, Homeland was all but a lock in each of its major categories, but after a shaky second season, some strong competition from other long-running shows, and a buzzworthy new Netflix series, things are really up in the air pretty much all over the place. Still, I’ll do my best to make some predictions in the big categories. Just remember: This year, pretty much anything goes.

Breaking Bad
Downton Abbey
Game of Thrones
House of Cards
Mad Men

While I’d love to see Game of Thrones’ confident t...

The American Beauty actor last year announced he was giving budding movie makers from the U.S., South Africa, and Russia the chance to direct him in a short film.

Movie Review: 'Safe' (Video)

4/27/2012 2:12pm EDT
First off, I must say that there are some actors that I just enjoy watching ­- doesn't really matter all that much what they do up on the silver screen, I just like them - and Jason Statham is one of them.

Is he a great actor? That's yet to be determined, but he's definitely an entertaining one.

In his new film 'Safe' written and directed by Boaz Yakin ('Remember the Titans') Statham is at the top of his game.

He plays Luke Wright, an ex super cop, ex cage fighter, who's at the lowest point in his life. Luke's wife has been murdered by the Russian mob and he is one step away from jumping...

Kevin Spacey's popularity has taken a hit - no one wants to play tennis with him on the set of his new movie Game On.

The Oscar winner volunteered his time as part of a charity auction for New Orleans, Louisiana housing organization Make It Right, and offered fans the chance to spend the day with him, but when bidding on the item closed last week only half the reserve price of $5,000 had been met.

Charlie Day Steals The Show In 'Horrible Bosses'

7/10/2011 1:31pm EDT
Horrible Bosses
It's often said that comedic acting is more difficult than dramatic acting, for various reasons. On one hand, it's a real shame that comedic actors are never recognized for their works with Oscars or other prestigious awards. On the other hand, so many comedies are so lazy (Adam Sandler's last five movies, for instance) that they deserve the derision and low reputation they get. All of this makes it all the more delightful when a brilliant, excellent, elevating comedic performance comes along; the kind delivered by Charlie Day in "Horrible Bosses."

From the beginning, Day has his work c...

What Celebrities Would Be 'Horrible Bosses'?

Horrible Bosses
“Horrible Bosses,” a black comedy starring funnymen Jason Bateman, Charlie Day (“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”) and Jason Sudeikis, is about three friends who conspire to kill each other’s torturous bosses. Although it doesn’t premiere in theaters until July 8, I have already heard buzz about the film’s epic hilarity from people who have attended early screenings. In honor of the movie's release (that also boasts the comedic stylings of Oscar-winner Kevin Spacey, a brunette Jennifer Aniston and a beer-bellied, balding Colin Farrell), I’m using my powers of imagination for good and ex...

Jason Bateman: Greatest Career Resurrection Ever?

7/7/2011 3:00pm EDT
jason bateman
One of the biggest stars in Hollywood right now was practically living in obscurity 15 years ago. The second act of Jason Bateman’s career is almost as unbelievable as it is well-deserved. After a career-boosting (heck, career-reviving) role on Fox’s short-lived sitcom “Arrested Development,” Bateman has become ubiquitous in Hollywood comedies and pretty much synonymous with the passive-aggressive straight man character. This weekend, his new movie “Horrible Bosses” opens nationwide co-starring Jason Sudeikis, Charlie Day, Jennifer Aniston, Colin Farrell and Kevin Spacey. The cast, which mi...
