President Barack Obama asked the natural question Tuesday at the White House when faced with Netflix chief executive officer Reed Hastings.
"I'm just wondering if you brought advance copies of 'House of Cards,'" Obama said during a meeting with Hastings and other tech CEOs. Hastings, as first reported by CBS' Mark Knoller, laughed and invited Obama to do a cameo on the series, which stars Kevin Spacey as the treacherous Democratic pol Frank Underwood.
"I wish things were that ruthlessly efficient," Obama replied. "I was looking at Kevin Spacey -- this guy's getting a lot of stuff done."
