Two more have been drafted in at David Fincher’s Netflix drama House Of Cards.

Michel Gill and Sandrine Holt (Underworld: Awakening) have been added to the cast of the streaming giant’s political thriller.

Based on Michael Dobbs’ novel and the 1990 British series, House Of Cards stars Kevin Spacey as Rep. Frank Underwood, the Majority Whip of the U.S. House of Representatives who after being overlooked for Secretary of State conspires to bring down the new president, Garrett Walker (Gill).

As per Deadline, Walker is described as the apotheosis of leadership, charisma and dignity, a master politician who is not above making ruthless choices. But when he reneges on a pre-election promise to Underwood, he may have created a powerful enemy.

As for Holt, she’ll play Gillian, the leader of a grass-roots organization that provides clean water to third-world countries.

House Of Cards is Netflix’s upcoming original series. 26 episodes are set to air over two seasons. The project costs somewhere in the region of $100 million and is slated to begin production this Spring.
