Actor Kevin Spacey, who plays Frank Underwood in the Netflix series “House of Cards,” on Sunday said that the show is pretty similar to what actually happens in Congress.

“Look, for me it’s like performance art, you know, I sometimes watch it actually we can get done shooting on a day, and I’ll come home and turn on the news and I’ll think, you know, our storylines are not that crazy. They’re really not,” he said on ABC’s “This Week.”

“Well, I’ve heard from lots of people, you know, that some people feel that 99 percent of the show is accurate and that the 1 percent that isn’t is that you could never get an education bill passed that fast.”
