Ex-House of Cards lead Kevin Spacey must be pining for the days of being a television President of the United States, as the actor has posted a posted a video on his official Twitter account (also appearing on YouTube) of him imitating his old role as Frank Underwood from the Netflix series seemingly to address what happened to him/Frank (it gets confusing) on the show
In the video titled "Let Me Be Frank," the actor doesn't appear too pleased with the fate of his character (out of respect for the Robin Wright-led final season, so spoilers) – but as you're about to see (and read in the transcript that follows), though the actual point to the video is still in question since Netflix severed all ties with Spacey back in November 2017, and House of Cards has already aired its final season.
I know what you want. Oh sure, they may have tried to separate us, but what we have is too strong. It's too powerful. I mean after all, we shared everything you and I. I told you my deepest, darkest secrets. I showed you exactly what people are capable of. I shocked you with my honesty. But mostly, I challenged you and made you think.
And you trusted me. Even though you knew you shouldn't.
So we're not done, no matter what anyone says. And besides, I know what you want.
You want me back. Of course, some believed everything and have just been waiting with bated breath to hear me confess it all. They're just dying to have me declare that everything said is true and that I got what I deserved. Wouldn't that be easy?
If it was all so simple? Only you and I both know it's never that simple, not in politics and not in life.
But you wouldn't believe the worst without evidence, would you? You wouldn't rush to judgments without facts, would you? Did you? No, not you. You're smarter than that. Anyway all this presumption made for such an unsatisfying ending. And to think it could have been such a memorable sendoff. I mean if you and I have learned nothing else these past years, it's that in life and art, nothing should be off the table. We weren't afraid, not of what we said and not of what we did, and we're still not afraid.
Because I can promise you this: if I didn't pay the price for the things we both know I did do, I'm certainly not going to pay the price for the things I didn't do.
Well of course they're gonna say I'm being disrespectful, not playing by the rules, like I ever played by anyone's rules before.
I never did. And you loved it. Anyhow. Despite all the poppycock, the animosity the headlines, the impeachment without a trial, despite everything, despite even my own death, I feel surprisingly good.
And my confidence grows each day that soon enough, you will know the full truth. Oh. Wait a minute. Now that I think of it. You never actually saw me die. Did you? Conclusions can be so deceiving.
On Monday, The Boston Globe reported that Spacey is facing a felony charge for alleged sexually assaulting the teenage son of a former WCVB-TV news anchor at a Nantucket bar in 2016; and that an arraignment on a charge of indecent assault and battery is scheduled for Nantucket District Court on January 7.
