'House of Cards' star weighs in on Obama's remarks

Washington (CNN) – One day after President Barack Obama said he wishes Washington worked a little more like it does in the Netflix series "House of Cards," the star of said program is offering his help.

Kicking off a meeting with top tech executives at the White House on Tuesday, Obama asked if Netflix's CEO Reed Hastings brought advanced copies of the hit web series, which enters its second season in February and focuses on Kevin Spacey's power-hungry character, Rep. Frank Underwood, as he skillfully maneuvers politics inside the Beltway.

The CEOs laughed and asked if the President would consider a cameo.

"I wish things were that ruthlessly efficient," Obama joked. "It's true... Kevin Spacey, I said, man, this guy's getting a lot of stuff done."

Wednesday Spacey tweeted, "President @BarackObama, to help achieve ruthless efficiency, a copy of Frank's new book 'How to Kick Ass & Influence Congress' is on its way."
