Gretchen Carlson Has Cameo in New House of Cards

By Mark Joyella 

Netflix’s hit series House of Cards has returned, and the new season features a cameo with Fox News host Gretchen Carlson.

The scene, shot on the set of Carlson’s The Real Story, involves a supposed on-air discussion of the First Lady, making a trip to Texas. “It was an honor to be a part of the fictional political world of House of Cards in a year so important to the real political process in America,” Carlson tells TVNewser.

Given the weirdness of the current presidential campaign, it’s tempting to imagine Kevin Spacey’s character interacting with the current candidates. “Wonder who’d win between Frank Underwood and Donald Trump?”

The show has a long history of cable and broadcast news cameos, with Jake Tapper, Dana Bash, George Stephanopoulos, Lester Holt, and Ari Melber all making appearances.
