Kevin Spacey Stole Kevin McCarthy Line

"When Kevin Spacey was preparing to play ruthless House majority whip Frank Underwood on House of Cards, he turned to then-actual House majority whip Kevin McCarthy (R-CA)," People reports.

"The actor said he was interested in the mechanics of the job, but also in knowing: 'How much do you twist arms?'"

Says McCarthy: "I told him I say to members, 'You vote your district, you vote your conscience, you just don't surprise me.' And he stole that line for the show."
