After a politically stormy off-season, the return of "House of Cards" to Maryland becomes a reality with casting call notices like this one going out.

Here's part of the notice SAG-AFTRA members in this region received.

Note the role of NSA director; the NSA would be a nice storyline in Season 3, wouldn't it?

There are also roles for two reporters -- ages 35 to 55. Is the mainstream media going to be back for more of a pounding by showrunner and former Howard Dean staffer Beau Willimon?

Anyway, here's the notice:
