Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright star in “House of Cards.”

A lot of high-tech talent was in the house today.

The White House.

And the president had a question for  Reed Hastings, the co-founder and CEO of Netflix:

“I’m just wondering if you brought advance copies of House of Cards?” President Barack Obama asked the producer of the Netflix original series about political power and corruption starring Kevin Spacey.

The president’s guest laughed, and also invited Obama to make a cameo appearance.

“I wish things were that ruthlessly efficient,” the president joked about the show’s portrayal of those who pull the levers of power in Washington.

Noting Spacey’s own role in the show, Obama said: “This guy’s getting a lot of stuff done.”

Cue the laugh track from the visiting execs.
