Kevin Spacey has resurfaced with another bizarre Christmas Eve video.

On Sunday (Dec. 24), the former House of Cards actor shared a seven-minute clip, titled “Being Frank With Tucker,” in which he once again reprises his role as the Netflix drama’s power-hungry politician Frank Underwood, this time sitting down for a faux interview with former Fox News host Tucker Carlson.

The strange sit-down begins with Carlson — who now has a show on X (formerly Twitter) — asking Spacey’s Underwood if he’d ever consider running for president in the upcoming 2024 election.

“Well, that’s really a decision for the people, Tucker. It’s not something that I really think about or want to do,” Spacey answers in the character’s classic Southern drawl before turning to the camera to wish viewers a Merry Christmas.

“But I’ve always believed that nothing should be off the table in life or in art. I think we can both agree that we need to get some adults back in the room, so if that means taking on the chief executive role, well that’s a sacrifice I’m willing to make for this great nation.”

Later in the interview, Spacey-as-Underwood addresses being fired from Netflix in 2017 after the actor was accused of sexual assault by a number of men in the U.S. and England.

“It is bizarre that [Netflix] decided to publicly cut ties with me on allegations alone — allegations that have now been proven false,” Spacey says in character. “Because I don’t think there’s any question; Netflix exists because of me. I put them on the map and they tried to put me in the ground.”

In late July, Spacey was found not guilty of all nine charges he was facing in the U.K. In November, he was also found not liable in the New York civil case brought by U.S. actor Anthony Rapp, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
