One of Netflix's biggest shows is adding another card to its already stacked deck. "Scream" star Neve Campbell has signed on to join the political drama "House of Cards" for the show's upcoming fourth season.
According to Deadline Hollywood, Campbell has signed a deal to appear as a series regular in Season 4, although, no information has been given yet as to what character she will play. Campbell's role will be a matter of fan speculation until the season premieres next spring.
Viewers will remember that Season 3 ended on quite the cliffhanger as Claire Underwood (Robin Wright) announced that she was leaving her President husband, Frank (Kevin Spacey). If the couple does indeed split up, Campbell could be a new romantic interest for Frank. Also, rumors have been swirling that the season will introduce a young, hungry couple to rival the Underwoods. Campbell could be one half of that couple. Of course, there is a myriad of other roles Campbell could fill in the corrupt world of "House of Cards," from political advisors to other politicians.
Campbell is no stranger to television. The 41-year old actress famously starred as Julia Salinger in the long-running Fox series "Party of Five." However, Campbell is probably best know for the role of Sidney Prescott in the "Scream" horror movie franchise. She has also appeared in "Wild Things," "The Lion King 2: Simba's Pride" and guest spots on "Mad Men," "Grey's Anatomy," and "The Simpsons."
The news of Campbell's television comeback comes one day after her most famous onscreen work, the "Scream" franchise, returned for a television sereis reboot. Season 1 MTV's "Scream" premiered Tuesday night to the delight of horror fans.
Fans of Neve Campbell and "House of Cards," on the other hand, will have to wait for the Season 4 premiere in the spring of 2016.
