Kevin Spacey and the Giant Peach

South Carolina's 5th Congressional District has a new congressman. At least on TV.

In the new Netflix production "House of Cards" actor Kevin Spacey stars as Francis Underwood, a Democrat from the Palmetto State's 5th District, just over the N.C. line from Charlotte.

Spacey plays House Majority Whip Francis Underwood. According to the Hollywood Reporter, he "controls the levers of power like the strings of marionettes, turning the world's most powerful deliberative body into his own personal puppet show."

Gaffney's famous "Peachoid" reportedly makes a cameo in the third episode.

The 5th District's current congressman is Republican Mick Mulvaney. According to a spokeswoman, Mulvaney hasn't  seen the show yet but plans to.
