Stephen Colbert is Frank Underwood's new target

As Stephen Colbert spends his final few months on The Colbert Report, the talk show host remains unsure of what he’ll do next—though the real Stephen Colbert’s plans are already set. Luckily for him, Kevin Spacey appeared as House of Cards‘ Frank Underwood on his show last night to offer some seemingly friendly advice.

Complete with his southern drawl and unintelligible metaphors about animals, Underwood promised to take Colbert under his wing if the talk-show host ever pursues a career in Washington. All Underwood asked was that Colbert meet him at the edge of a train platform—which should give any fan of House of Cards a moment of pause for Colbert’s safety. READ FULL STORY

Ashton Kutcher leads 'Forbes' list of top-earning TV actors

It looks like CBS is treating its actors pretty well, cha-ching-wise.

Two and a Half Men’s Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer take the No. 1 and No. 2 spots in Forbes’ annual list of highest-paid male TV actors with a respective $26 million and $19 million in annual earnings between June 2013 and June 2014. This will be the third year in a row that Kutcher, whose tech cred recently landed him a gig as a product engineer with Lenovo, has landed the top spot. Cryer, meanwhile,  is building upon Two and a Half Men’s monies with a huge book advance for an upcoming memoir that one hopes will be gossipy enough to warrant such a payout.

CBS continues its turnout of highly paid actors with Mark Harmon, who also ties for second place with $19 million, thanks to the syndication juggernaut that is NCIS and its respective spin-offs. Fresh off his Tony win for Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Neil Patrick Harris made a cool $18 million thanks to the final season of How I Met Your Mother. And even though Grey’s Anatomy is running into season 11, Patrick Dempsey still musters an incredible paycheck at $16 million, with endorsement deals with Porsche and Simmons Beautyrest mattresses.

Kevin Spacey joins Jimmy Fallon's barbershop group to sing 'Talk Dirty' -- VIDEO

Whether it’s with classroom instruments or by impersonating Tom Petty, you never quite know how Jimmy Fallon is going to cover a hit song on The Tonight Show. Somehow, the late-night host still manages to surprise — and his interpretation of Jason Derulo’s stomper “Talk Dirty” is no exception.

For Derulo’s hit, Fallon brought back his barbershop group, The Ragtime Gals, on Friday. There are primary color-striped blazers, bow ties, jaunty hats, and…Kevin Spacey.

“I’ve been around the world, don’t speak the language/But your booty don’t need explaining” never sounded so delightful. Take a look: READ FULL STORY

Kevin Spacey stars in new 'Call of Duty,' makes Frank Underwood seem like a pushover

call-of-duty-01.jpg

“People don’t want freedom. They want boundaries, rules, protection — from invaders and from themselves. People need a leader who can give them both the support and the constraints to keep chaos at bay. You give them that and they’ll follow. And that’s where I come in.”

As far as presidential addresses, it’s not exactly Lincolnesque or Jeffersonian — but then that’s not exactly what Kevin Spacey is going for in the first trailer for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. In fact, he might not even be a president; he sounds more like a corporate schemer from the military-industrial complex, like Giovanni Ribisi’s character in Avatar – swathed in Frank Underwood relish.

It’s somewhat perfect to have Spacey starring in the new Call of Duty, since his House of Cards character is such a fan of first-person shooters. The new game’s slogan, “power changes everything,” also playfully blends the two brands and characters. I’m in. Lock and load.

What is Kevin Spacey talking about? Is this a 'House of Cards' clip?

The last time we saw Kevin Spacey, he was sizing up the Oval Office on House of Cards after his President Frank Underwood had been sworn in to the nation’s highest office. After backstabbing his way to the presidency, it will be interesting to see what kind of leader he is when the bulls-eye is on his back. Will he be like Nixon? LBJ? Clinton? Or Lincoln?

I’m ruminating because of a mysterious audio snippet that recently popped up on Complex.com. In it, Spacey — not necessarily Underwood — talks skeptically to someone who thinks “you can just march into these countries based on some fundamentalist religious principles, drop a few bombs, topple a dictator and start a democracy?” READ FULL STORY

'House of Cards': All of Frank's best asides in one handy video

Get on Frank Underwood’s bad side, and he might just brutally murder you. If you’re lucky, though, he’ll simply respond with a catty aside to a camera you can’t see — which, in its own way, is just as harmful. Maybe. (Wait, no, it isn’t at all.)

Anyhow: If you’re yearning to see a version of House of Cards that excises all the boring political intrigue and visits to superhackers and long shots of people staring, smolderingly, as they plot their revenge, you’ve come to the right place. Our latest supercut is nothing but Cards at its best — that is, Frank breaking the fourth wall and making like a bitchy southern belle who’s just emerged from a particularly taxing Junior League meeting. He’s sort of like the Dowager Countess of Washington, D.C., except the Dowager Countess stages fewer suicides. READ FULL STORY

'House of Cards': Let's talk all of season 2

House-of-Cards.jpg

Did you spend all of Presidents Day weekend breathlessly binge-watching the second season of House of Cards? Good — because so did I. (It’s what George Washington would have wanted.) And after coming up for air, fortifying myself with a few racks of slow-cooked ribs, and spending way too long Googling variations on “fluffy pet from the future and/or outer space” — seriously, there is no way Cashew is actually a guinea pig — I’m finally ready to process what I just saw.

(Spoilers, obviously, follow.) READ FULL STORY
