Kelly cast in Netflix’s ‘House of Cards’

Fincher's TV series set to begin production next month

Michael Kelly has been cast in the Netflix original series “House of Cards.”

The 26-episode pre-ordered series, from David Fincher, is based on a novel by author Michael Dobbs and a British miniseries about a spurned congressman (Kevin Spacey) who aims to take down the president.

Others already cast include Corey Stoll, Kate Mara, Kristen Connolly and Robin Wright.

“Cards” is Netflix’s big-budget attempt — production costs are estimated at $100 million — to continue their mark in original programming. “Lilyhammer,” starring Steve Van Zandt, recently premiered on the subscription service.

Filming is set to begin next month in Baltimore.

Kelly, a former Variety 10 Actors to Watch selection, can currently be seen in “Chronicle,” is filming “Now You See Me” with Woody Harrelson and Mark Ruffalo, and has a role in Zack Snyder’s Superman pic “Man of Steel,” due next year.

He is repped by Innovative Artists and Brian Liebman at Liebman Entertainment.
