Kevin Spacey, mondo asshole

“I put them on the map”: Kevin Spacey bashes Netflix to Tucker Carlson, claims inventing "tudum"


(Salon) Disgraced actor Kevin Spacey has returned to make his annual (albeit incredibly bizarre) Christmas Eve videos, in which he poses as his “House of Cards” character, Frank Underwood. In this year’s special, Spacey sat down with former Fox News host Tucker Carlson to bash Netflix.

“By the way, do you watch Netflix anymore?” Carlson asked.

“Probably as much as you watch Fox,” Spacey replied, which earned a few cackles from Carlson. The host continued, asking Spacey if he’s aware that he’s “there in some way” when people pull up the Netflix app. Netflix’s signature “tudum” intro sound played shortly after. (Netflix hired a company to produce the sonic logo.)

Elsewhere in his interview with Carlson, Spacey, still pretending to be Underwood, suggested that he would run for president:

“Our country needs to stop apologizing and stiffen up,” Spacey said. “We have so many people running with so many different issues, like gun control, but let’s be honest. More people are killed by online trolls everyday. .........(more)

why Spacey portrayed assholes on the screen so effectively. Innate ability, I guess.

He appears as Frank Underwood, the character he played on House of Cards.

I think it’s a yawn worthy skit but I’m certainly not offended by it.

A-holes who legitimately offend and trespass with no common decency deserve to be banished, ostracisized, and exiled. Cancel culture has been around for millenia. Thank God it worked in Spacey's case. What a creep. The fact he thinks he did nothing wrong and it's everyone else's issue speaks volumes about his character. There is something not right there. And moaning about it to Carlson?!?! Oh brother!
