Netflix has announced they will not move forward in production of their hit series House of Cards with lead actor Kevin Spacey, following several allegations of sexual assault.  That statement might mean that they're considering either moving forward by replacing Spacey or replacing him.  An online petition is asking that Kevin James serve as the replacement; we disagree.

Here's a countdown of the 10 actors we feel would be best served to replace Spacey.
