Netflix’s big ‘Arrested Development‘ season 4 premiere may have come and gone, with original series like ‘Orange is the New Black‘ and ‘Derek‘ on the way, but subscribers of the streaming service are no doubt awaiting the second season of Kevin Spacey’s ‘House of Cards.’ The massively successful David Fincher series now adds ‘Mad Men‘ star Sam Page and ‘Deadwood’ alum Molly Parker, but who might they play among the seedy underbelly of Washington, DC?

We don’t yet have a clear timetable for Netflix’s release of ‘House of Cards’ season 2, potentially arriving in 2014, but production remains underway in Maryland as part of the political drama’s initial two-season order. Now, via TVLine, we’ve learned that the UK-adapted series has added two major recurring roles to its second year, courtesy of Page and Parker.

Of course, the secretive production offers no details of their parts, either in length or significance, but, hey, recognizable actors! Very little else is known of the drama’s second season, only that Michael Gill (President Garrett Walker) has been upped to series regular, while showrunner Beau Willimon remains uncertain if Netflix will continue its all-at-once model, or finance a third season beyond the original order.

Well, what say you? Are you eagerly awaiting ‘House of Cards’ season 2, kicking yourself for binge-watching before a second season could be shot?
