George Stephanopoulos, a former operative to Bill Clinton turned journalist, had one question he wanted to ask actor Kevin Spacey about his diabolical character from the political TV series House of Cards: "What would Frank Underwood's advice be to Hillary Clinton on whether to run for president?" [See video below. MP3 audio here.]
Spacey, appearing on Tuesday's Good Morning America to promote the new season of his Netflix series, adopted a Bill Clinton impersonation and joked, "Oh, run." He continued, "Sorry, I did that as Bill. 'Run, baby, run.'" Showing up on the Today show in 2012 to promote season one of House of Cards, Spacey compared fiction to real life, smearing Mitt Romney was a "murderous politician."
A transcript of the February 18 exchange is below:
GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: Final Twitter question from Doug Koslow: "What would Frank Underwood's advice be to Hillary Clinton on whether to run for president?"
KEVIN SPACEY: Oh, run. Sorry, that was Bill. I said – Sorry, I did that as Bill. "Run, baby, run."
STEPHANOPOULOS: I think he does want her to run, too. That's right. Kevin Spacey, thanks a lot. House of Cards is so great. All 13 episodes of the second season are now available on Netflix. Thanks for coming in.
