Removing knives from backs, washing blood off politicians' hands and hiding skeletons in closets aren't skills typically emphasized in medical school.
But such capabilities may have landed doctors and nurses with acting ambitions a spot on the next season of Netflix's hit show “House of Cards.”
The website Project Casting recently posted a casting call for nurses, doctors and other medical staff for the political melodrama's fourth season. Filming dates with the medical extras were scheduled for late August and early September in Baltimore.
The series' new season is expected to launch in early 2016.
“House of Cards” follows fictional American President Frank Underwood, played by Kevin Spacey, and his wife, Claire Underwood, played by Robin Wright, as they scheme and manipulate to get their way, pushing anyone who disagrees with them under the bus (and sometimes under a train).
