Thousands Want Kevin James To Replace Kevin Spacey
Kevin Spacey has not been having a good time recently. His career has completely fallen apart after allegations of sexual misconduct came to light thanks to Anthony Rapp and Harry Dreyfuss.
These allegations saw him initially axed from the hit Netflix show House of Cards, and now the show has been cancelled for good. As if to add insult to injury, a petition has kicked off urging Netflix to consider comedic actor Kevin James to take on the role of Frank Underwood.
The Change.org petition has already gained over 28,000 signatures!
Aussie legend, Robbie Pyma, was the one who started the petition. In the petition he explains, “Losing a great show is hard, no matter the circumstances. However with hardship comes the opportunity for a great show to become one of the greatest television shows of all time. I think Kevin James can elevate “House of Cards” to a globally adored franchise like “Game of Thrones” and make the entire world focus on one of the most important Netflix Original series there is.”
It’s unclear if this is a genuine request or just an attempt at humour. Either way, people are keen to jump on board and sign their name.
Ah, the internet! These are the kinds of things that happen when thousands of strangers come together.
