You are among my favorite actors of all time, Mr. Spacey. From your skills to the amazing roles that suited you so well, you are indeed among the elite in Hollywood and well-earned. I am a native of Spartanburg, SC and spent my most memorable years in Cowpens, right on the Cherokee County border. In middle school and early high school every girl I dated was from Jonesville or Gaffney. My Mom's family is from NY but we are all South Carolinian for sure, however as a result I am highly skilled at languages. I speak this Upstate SC accent as well as anyone being a native here even though I am often accused of being from "the north" because I have a reasonable grasp of the English language. That said, your interpretation of an Upstate SC accent is horrible...This is not Northern Georgia or Louisiana, whatever hybrid accent you're going for there. People from Gaffney as a majority do not speak with the southern accent you so beautifully do in House of Cards. Oh, I remember watching the Peachoid go up from the steel beams and all...I fished in the ponds that provided fresh water to the peach orchards all over Cherokee County. I speak "properly" according to my fellow natives, but I can blend in with them too, and your portrayal of an Upstate SC accent is so far off it's embarrassing. The writing and your considerable skills are amazing...Please don't get me wrong. All I'm saying is that as a native of this congressional district I'm disappointed in your failure to truly grasp our accent.

I have never written a famous person before, but your performance in this movie warrants it. At first when I realized you were singing and not Bobby Darin I was surprised...fast forward to the end. The Curtain Falls is the most beautiful song I have ever heard sung. I listened to the version Bobby sang on You Tube, and may I be forgiven for saying this...it may have been his song but you totally nailed it!! You gave me a lovely evening watching your movie and I thank you. Maria (BTW from Princeton, NJ)

I'm sorry bro. I'm a fan of your movies. Me and my wife get so mad at horrible bosses! (Because you played the character so good). I wanted to beat ur ass! If he was my boss! (LOL that's a compliment) Anyways, I don't know if Rapp just wants attention, or he just wants to start some shit, but his parents are responsible. Why is a 14 year old going to a party and getting drunk? He wasn't traumatized by you. His parents were criminally neglegent. I hope U don't get too bummed out. Good luck and GOD bless you!

Dear Kevin:
My wife and I love your work as an superb actor. We are saddened by this over zealous action towards you. We think it is very unfair. We wish you the very best and know there are many of your fans that will always support you and the talents you bring into our homes. Our best to you. This too shall pass. The media is out of control on this. You have been dignified in addressing this. God bless.

Mr. Stacey: I am a huge fan of yours. For what it is worth, I think what has happened to you is beyond belief. How is possible for you to have your reputation ruined, when there has been no due process of law? How can allegations that are unproved (at this point) ruin your life? Before these rumors (what they are at this point) are proven you or anyone else should not harassed in the manner that you and others, have been. My thoughts are with you
