Looks like Kevin Spacey is maintaining his streak of political roles — but this time, he’s not playing a bad guy.

Spacey, who has portrayed disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff and the murderous fictional Vice President Frank Underwood, will take the part of Winston Churchill, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The American actor is slated to star as the beloved British P.M. in Captain of the Gate, which the Hollywood Reporter says will be produced and financed by Sierra/Affinity for around $20 million.

Sounds like Spacey will be trading Underwood’s southern drawl for a British accent.
