During an interview on the Today show on Wednesday, February 24, Willie Geist asked the actor, who has won a Golden Globe for the role, if he thinks President Underwood would endorse or get behind the GOP front-runner.

“[He’d] get behind just to shove him,” Spacey, 56, quipped before adding, “I don’t think so, no.”

As fans of the show will recall, Underwood shoved Kate Mara’s character, reporter Zoe Barnes, to death in the season 2 premiere!

Spacey was careful not to get too involved personally with the current presidential race.

“It’s been interesting because we’re in the middle of a presidential election on our show and obviously we’re in the middle of a real presidential election,” Spacey said. “I’m gonna try to not blend fact and fiction. I’ll just avoid that question.”

Watch the clip above for more from Spacey, including what to expect with Netflix’s upcoming season of House of Cards.
