Cast members reveled in the real-life president’s support at a premiere event Thursday night. Robin Wright plays Claire Underwood, wife of Kevin Spacey’s vice president-to-be Frank Underwood. She says Obama “knows good stuff.”
And Kate Mara, who plays reporter Zoe Barnes, double-checked the authenticity of the tweet before celebrating. She calls Obama’s message “one of the coolest things that’s happened to me.”
Mara says the 13-episode season is “just as dark as the first.”
Why not? It's not like he has a real job to do.
