It has finally been announced - Kevin Spacey is to take the lead role in the American version of House of Cards, which is being directed by David Fincher.
Regardless of Mr Spacey's acting skills, I can't imagine his performance matching Ian's majestic portrayal of Francis Urquhart - one of the finest performances in TV history.
If you want to see all three series, the box set is currently available from Amazon UK at a knockdown price of £9.93 (what a bargain) and for just a few pence more from Play.com. As far as TV Drama collections go, every home should have a copy of this one.
Here's another taster.
Can Kevin match this peerless portrayal? I couldn't possibly comment!
