Looks like Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) just met his match.
On Tuesday, Netflix revealed that “Suicide Squad” Star Joel Kinnaman will be making his way to Washington when Season 4 of the Netflix drama premieres in March. But will the 36-year-old actor portray the political hero that D.C. so desperately needs? (We know the White House could certainly use a visit from Rick Flagg!)
Although Netflix didn’t reveal any details about the Swedish-born actor’s role in the drama, the streaming provider did release an image of Kinnaman’s character.

In the photo, fans see Kinnaman’s character sitting with President Underwood in what appears to be a heated discussion. With crossed legs and expressioned hands, we’ve theorized that Kinnaman is most likely irritating POTUS. Perhaps Kinnaman is portraying a journalist — one tasked with asking President Underwood the tough questions about the leader’s 2016 presidential campaign.
Kinnaman won’t be the only newcomer joining “House of Cards.” In July, it was revealed that “Scream” alum Neve Campbell would be joining the show as a series regular in addition to “Thor” actor Colm Feore.
According to Deadline, “The Chronicles of Riddick” star will take on the recurring role of a “high-profile” character in the fourth installment. Could this mean Feore will play a nemesis of Frank? We know how much the President despises other power players.
Season 4 of “House of Cards” will air Friday, March 4, on Netflix. Check out the trailer for the new season below:
