Today fails to ask Robin Wright about "toxic" Kevin Spacey allegations on House of Cards set

In her first interview promoting the final season of House of Cards, Wright told Savannah Guthrie that the cast and crew were “all surprised, of course, and ultimately saddened” by the sexual misconduct allegations against Spacey. “Kevin and I knew each other between action and cut, and in between setups where we would giggle,” Wright said. “I didn’t really — I didn’t know the man. I knew the incredible craftsman that he is.” But as David Zurawik points out, Guthrie failed to ask Wright about a CNN report, sourced to eight current and former House or Cards staffers, that the set of the Netflix drama was "toxic" with Spacey’s abusive and predatory sexual behavior. "One of journalism’s primary jobs is providing clarity by trying to resolve such contradictions — not serve up the kind of questions that allow someone who was in a position of authority and responsibility on that set to avoid taking the contradiction on," says Zurawik. "Wright was a director, executive producer and co-star. She was not as powerful as Spacey, but she had enough power to say something if any part of what CNN alleged about that set was true." ALSO: The interview exposed several absurdities about the show’s decision to keep going.

Michael Kelly says the post-Kevin Spacey House of Cards "all worked out, and Robin is so frigging talented"
Kelly says he's learned a great deal working closely with Robin Wright in the final season. To have all those years to have learned from Kevin, and now all this time to learn from Robin, it’s just like as an actor, you can’t ask for anything more than that, to learn under those two people. (It’s been) the greatest acting classes for the last six years," he says. As for Spacey, whom he hasn't spoken to since his ouster from the Netflix series, Kelly says: "There’s obviously a million emotions that I went through, that I processed during this whole thing. I don’t want to talk too much about it because it was heartbreaking in so many ways." He adds that he's "still processing" what happened. "You go from talking to someone often to not at all, and in any profession, in anything, circumstances removed, what happened removed, it’s strange … and I’m still processing," he says. "I haven’t formulated any opinion, and I haven’t talked publicly about it. This is the first thing I’ve ever said. I think I’m still going through a lot, processing the whole thing. It’s tough."

It was about time House of Cards ditched Kevin Spacey and made Robin Wright the star

“The natural course of the show long ago turned Frank Underwood into a nearly unbearable character, a hardheaded man who would do anything to maintain his grip on power,” says Yohana Desta. “The show has also had to contort itself into all sorts of odd directions in order to ensure that Frank keeps winning. And while he began life as an enthralling political animal, that central conceit has worn thin, particularly over the course of the series’s past few seasons.” Desta adds that “Claire, by contrast, has long been the more alluring cipher of the two.”
