Rob Ford On ‘House Of Cards’ Star Kevin Spacey: ‘I Wouldn’t Know Him If I Ran Him Over’

Here’s a little something in case you were wondering what Rob Ford thought about “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey.

The Toronto mayor and his brother, Toronto City Councillor Doug Ford, on Friday released new videos for their “Ford Nation” YouTube show. And the topic of conversation turned to Spacey, who the brothers apparently saw backstage at Jimmy Kimmel’s post-Oscars show.

“And then there was this Kevin Spacey, OK?” Doug said. “I want to start off with saying, Kevin Spacey is an incredible actor. He is, he really is.”

“I don’t watch movies so,” Rob said. “I wouldn’t know him if I ran him over.”

Doug went on.

“In my opinion, he’s an arrogant S.O.B., and I’ll tell you the reason why,” he said. “Any actor that makes a living off the people that watch his shows — he wouldn’t take a picture with anyone? We were told, you can’t take a picture, and you can’t speak to him. Who does this character think he is?”

“I don’t even know him,” Rob replied.
