Could Kevin James Replace Kevin Spacey on 'House of Cards'?

November 7, 2017

Should Kevin James replace Kevin Spacey on House of Cards? This sounds crazy, but more than 25,000 internet users don't think it's too crazy.

A series of allegations have been lodged against Kevin Spacey for sexual harassment over the past week. It started when Anthony Rapp alleged that Spacey acted inappropriately when Rapp was just 14 years old.


Netflix has since announced that Kevin Spacey will not be involved with any further production of their hit series House of Cards. The final season of the show was already into filming when the news broke. Production on that season is still in hiatus, and decisions have not been made just yet about what the loss of Kevin Spacey will mean for the show.

Well, the internet has their own idea. Some TV fans are suggesting that Kevin James replace Kevin Spacey on the show.

In fact, those fans have created an online petition to have actor Kevin James from King of Queens replace Spacey in the series. The petition already has well over 30,000 signatures. 

The creator of the petition said that Kevin can elevate House of Cards to a globally adored franchise like Game of Thrones.

For what it's worth, Kevin James is already a little busy. He is the star of the hit CBS show Kevin Can Wait

So what do you think? Do you think Frank Underwood should just live on with a new actor playing the role? Should they just cancel production on the show all together?
