Kevin Spacey is a great actor who felt like joining at Netflix original series (House of Cards, if you’re curious) was a smart thing to do at this point in his career, and since that show’s about politics, he wants to set the record straight and let everyone know that he’s not running for office in real life and never will. Because, you know, we all assumed that was going to happen.
From Capitol File:
Politics became a point of interest for Spacey decades ago. He’s been involved one way or another since the ’70s, stuffing envelopes for Jimmy Carter and campaigning for Ted Kennedy and Bill Clinton when each ran for president. But playing Frank Underwood is about as close as Spacey would like to come to a run for office, or even a role in bureaucracy. “I’m a person who likes to set a goal and then achieve it. I like to get things done,” he says. “I would never walk into a profession where I’d [know] I was going to be frustrated for the rest of my life.”
Well, that settles that, then. And listen, how about the media stops trying to encourage stars to run for office? I know it worked for Reagan (well… sorta), but stars are stars because that’s their area. They do celebrity things, not political things. That’s not to say that celebrities can’t be interested in politics insofar as voting and shit, but I’m not trying to have, like, John Travolta in the White House (first person that came to mind, sorry).

In fact, Kate Mara is so hot that ever since I saw her in Brokeback Mountain, she makes me want to do things to her. Nice things. Yes, I have girl-crushes, and yes, I have affinity for redheads. Deal with it.
But this isn’t about me, and certainly not about the way Kate Mara’s lips make me feel. This is about the fact that she is so much more… full of life than her sister Rooney. Kate Mara stars in Netflix’s new remix of the British miniseries House of Cards along with Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright, and I know I’m going to be watching it because the reviews are so flattering. The show is directed by David Fincher, who was responsible for some of the greatest movies ever (Se7en, Fight Club), and for The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, where the ‘Mara connection’ comes from, I suppose. Here’s the trailer for your viewing pleasure:

And I’m barely exaggerating when I say “all the celebrities.” There’s Ben Stiller, Matt Damon, Sean Penn, Kristen Wiig, Ted Danson, Mary Steenburgen, Jack Black, and Kevin Spacey. Did I miss anyone? Oh, Bill Clinton. Goodness

Cate Blanchett, Kevin Spacey, Matthew Fox and other faces you normally know from A-listy things joined together in Portofino, Italy to shoot a commercial for Swiss watch company, IWC. Considering how much they were all being paid to be there, all the stars looked content and glad to pal around with one another on set. Knowing that these pics are from the set of a watch ad and not stills from a Christmas 2010 movie release is… kinda crazy to think about.
