One would think that the recent bounty of quality programming on the Internet would put to rest any doubts about whether online series can hold their own against traditional network and cable fare. But, just in case, Kevin Spacey has some words for any straggling naysayers.
It has set “in some ways a new paradigm,” the star of Netflix series “House of Cards” says in the December issue of GQ, and, “that camera doesn’t know it’s a film camera or a TV camera or a streaming camera … it’s just a camera.”
Spacey’s so on board with this program that he sent Woody Allen a Netflix subscription — although it was in hopes of landing a job with the legendary helmer. (Allen responded, and Spacey says he’s “in contention for things in the future.”)
“I may,” he told the magazine, “write to Martin Scorsese next.”
Because even Oscar winners need audition reels.
