Kevin Spacey Registered Trademarks for ‘House of Cards’-Themed Merch Days Before Scandal Broke

Products include alcoholic beverages, sunglasses, footwear, gourmet-food products, toys and games

Just days before actor Anthony Rapp accused Kevin Spacey of sexual misconduct, the “House of Cards” star was registering trademarks for merchandise themed to the hit political drama on Netflix.

According to documents obtained by TheWrap, Spacey has been filing trademarks with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for more than a year to create a range of products under the label “PRESIDENTIAL BY KEVIN SPACEY” — an apparent reference to his White House-dwelling character Frank Underwood on “House of Cards.”

The filings include a request to trademark several products, including sunglasses, footwear, gourmet-food products, luxury goods, toys, games, jewelry, alcoholic beverages (except beer), greeting cards and cell phone covers.

A filing from April 2016 also includes the request to trademark “personal-concierge services for others comprising making requested personal arrangements and reservations and providing customer-specific information to meet individual needs.”

To date, no products have actually been announced — and they’re now unlikely to ever hit store shelves.

The most recent of the documents were filed on Oct. 24, just days before “Star Trek: Discovery” star Anthony Rapp accused Spacey of making sexual advances on him when he was 14 years old.

More than a dozen men subsequently came forward with allegations of sexual misconduct by the Oscar winner. On Friday, Netflix officially cut ties with Spacey after CNN reported eight people who work or have worked on “House of Cards” said Spacey had created a “toxic” work environment through a pattern of sexual harassment.

In addition, Spacey was dropped by his publicist and the CAA agency. On Thursday, Spacey’s publicist released a statement that the star was seeking unspecified “evaluation and treatment.”

Reps for Spacey, Netflix and “House of Cards” production company Media Rights Capital did not immediately respond to requests for comment about the trademark filings.
