Kevin Spacey, House of Cards


One of TV's greatest mysteries, which you probably didn't realize was a mystery, has been solved—we now know who Frank Underwood is talking to on House of Cards. Kevin Spacey made the bombshell "revelation"* on Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

"Who do you think you're talking to when you talk right to the camera? Who is that person? Is it like a close confidant? Because the persona you're actually talking to, of course, are people on a 10-hour Netflix binge, sucking on boxed wine," Stephen Colbert asked the Oscar winner.

"This is the truth, from the very beginning," Spacey said. "When I'm looking directly into that camera, I'm talking to one person and one person only, and that is Donald Trump."

And the crowd went wild!

House of Cards will of course return for another season after the cliffhanger ending where—SPOILER—Claire (Robin Wright) left President Frank Underwood. Neve Campbell will be on it too. Just don't expect Spacey or Wright to talk about plot points if you see them around.

"I have such respect for the audience and the fact…there are people who still haven't watched season one…So I kind of have a policy about this: I won't discuss any plot points or anything that happens in any season and I haven't ever, for three years. As I said, it's one of the most satisfying parts of being in this show. I can't actually do it because I can't be the Spoiler in Chief," Spacey told press in March.

*Revelation is in quotes because he's joking.

House of Cards is expected to return in early 2016.
