It turns out Kevin Spacey hasn’t been talking to us, the viewers, in his trademark asides on “House of Cards.”
In a round table with reporters Tuesday, the show’s star and executive producer revealed that he has a specific person in mind when his character, Francis Underwood, offers his running commentaries to the camera. The asides are the most divisive element of the show — beloved by some fans, distracting for others.
Though he addresses his off-screen confidante as “you” throughout the show, Spacey says he isn’t talking to you, specifically. Unless you happen to go way back with Underwood.
