Join actor Corey Stoll and Times staff writer Glenn Whipp today at 2 p.m. PDT for a live video chat about Stoll's turn as Peter Russo, a doomed (but charming!) congressman and would-be governor, in
After making like Hemingway in Woody Allen's "Midnight in Paris," Stoll would seem to know a thing or two about playing sobriety-challenged characters. On "House of Cards," Stoll gave his South Philly politician a fighting spirit, but the one opponent Russo had trouble beating was himself. We'll talk to Stoll about Russo's demons and ponder just how Kevin Spacey's string-pulling congressman knew precisely what would happen on Russo's gubernatorial campaign trail.
It's likely to be a fairly spoiler-rific chat, so if you haven't finished "House of Cards" yet (and what's taking you so long?), you'd best do your homework before listening in. Consider it your duty as an informed citizen.
