The Underwoods are getting new company on "House of Cards."
Netflix announced that Patricia Clarkson and Campbell Scott are joining the cast of the presidential drama for the upcoming fifth season. No details were revealed about their characters, but the streaming service did release two photos, and Clarkson is seen with Claire (Robin Wright) in a meeting at the White House, while Campbell appears to be consulting with Republican presidential nominee Will Conway (Joel Kinnaman).
The Oscar-nominated Clarkson has a long resume of movies and television, including a recent cameo on "Broad City." Scott has acted in "Damages" and "Royal Pains."
