Who would’ve thought that the Dad from “Malcolm In The Middle” would be a convincing drug kingpin in “Breaking Bad“? And look at the doubters that are now convinced about Rachel McAdams‘ ability to play a tough, damaged cop on “True Detective.” Not only has the current golden age of television given us great programming, it has also allowed more than a few actors the chance to shine in the kind of roles they wouldn’t normally get at the movies. So don’t scoff at this next piece of news.
Neve Campbell is joining the fourth season of Netflix‘s “House Of Cards,” and of course, her role isn’t being revealed just yet, but she will be a series regular. While the actress jumped to fame thanks to the “Scream” films and TV show “Party Of Five,” she has worked with folks like Robert Altman (“The Company“), Richard Attenborough (“Closing The Ring“), and James Toback (“When Will I Be Loved“). And she had a guest spot on “Mad Men” as well. Basically, she’s got the chops.
“House Of Cards” returns next year. Any thoughts who she might play? Weigh in below. [Deadline]
