Casting for Season 2 of Netflix’s breakout hit House of Cards is currently underway in Maryland.
Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley recently announced that the show had returned to production in the state, as producers take advantage of a tax credit it offers to film productions.
On Tuesday, O’Malley was hanging out on set:
He caught up with House of Cards star Kevin Spacey again on Saturday:
Spacey, by the way, apparently wore a ring from the show at Preakness:
On Saturday, according to the Baltimore Sun, about a thousand people showed up at the Bel Air Reckord Armory for a casting call for the show. David Anderson reports:
“It was a great cross section of people, I think, that will allow us to depict all walks of life in Washington, D.C.,” local casting director Kimberly Skyrme said.
Skyrme, who is the owner of Kimberly Skyrme Casting of University Park in Prince George’s County, and her staff took headshots and the resumes, and spent several minutes speaking with hundreds of men, women and children who came through the Armory gymnasium throughout the day Saturday.
While a release date for the second season has not yet been set, fans will be happy to know that the ball is indeed rolling. In the meantime, they can expect more good stuff coming from Netflix. Later this week, Arrested Development will finally make its long-awaited return as a Netflix-exclusive.
Meanwhile, fans of Netflix’s most recent original show, Hemlock Grove, are eagerly awaiting a second season.
House of Cards Season 1 will hit DVD on June 11th.
