LOS ANGELES (AP) - The political thriller “House of Cards” launched its second season with support from fans in real-life Washington power circles.
President Barack Obama’s official Twitter account notes the occasion along with the request: “No spoilers, please.” The tweet was not signed to indicate it came directly from the president, however, and the account is run by his group Organizing For Action.
And Kate Mara, who plays reporter Zoe Barnes, double-checked the authenticity of the tweet before celebrating. She calls the Obama message “one of the coolest things that’s happened to me.”
Mara says the 13-episode season is “just as dark as the first.”
