How dead is Kevin Spacey’s House of Cards character? So dead that he has a real tombstone. As per The Hollywood Reporter, Netflix has thought way, way outside-the-box on fan service: In honor of the show’s sixth and final season, all eight episodes of which dropped on the service last Friday, a real grave was created for late former president Frank J. Underwood.
Underwood is fake-buried in Oakland Cemetery in Gaffney, South Carolina, Underwood’s place of birth. Despite being a real cemetery, filled with real bodies and visited by real grievers, officials have played along, encouraging fans — or perhaps even the disgraced actor’s many, many haters — to come and get their picture taken with the real faux-tombstone.
Those who wish to pose with the tombstone — which reads that Underwood died in 2017, the year Spacey’s long history of sexual misconduct was first exposed — have to do so before November 10, when the cemetery will no longer be open to the public.
