Controversial actor Kevin Spacey might have lost his role as Frank Underwood in House of Cards, but that hasn’t stopped him from channeling the character. As many social media users know, Spacey eerily brought the character back for a series of cryptic online videos released around Christmas. Now, years since the last video in 2020, Kevin Spacey has returned with a new Christmas video – and this time he brought along Tucker Carlson.
The video was actually shared on the social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter, by Carlson himself. “Ep. 56,” he titles the video, “A Christmas Eve election surprise.” In actuality, Carlson is introducing Spacey (in the style of Frank Underwood) for a new interview. He calls Spacey someone who could not only join the 2024 presidential race but “rescramble the calculus of electoral politics.”
Obviously Spacey won’t be joining the race, but he does quite well acting as if Frank Underwood were. He continues to claim that Washington D.C. even needs some “adults in the room” given the current political climate. It’s certainly an interesting interview considering it features a controversial Hollywood actor channeling a character he no longer portrays.
It’s an interesting video and one that, much like Spacey’s other Frank Underwood reprisals released at Christmas time, has left many viewers confused. The comments are loaded with X users that express how confused they are, that they can’t follow along with the interview, and that they cannot even believe Kevin Spacey himself is part of the clip.
Here’s the new Kevin Spacey Christmas video which actually has a seven minute runtime:

Stay tuned to ScreenGeek for any additional updates regarding Kevin Spacey and any potential unofficial reprisals of his Frank Underwood role. As mentioned, he last played the part in 2020. It was expected then that it would be the last outing for Spacey – but, if this is any indication, then we can never be too sure when he might pop up again.
