Spacey reminisces about his Starbucks visit with Clinton

Remember the time Kevin Spacey and Bill Clinton rolled into the Starbucks near University of Baltimore in Mount Vernon?

Spacey told David Letterman last week that he was following the former president's motorcade when Clinton got a hankering for a coffee.

"So we're driving through the streets of Baltimore with the Secret Service and police motorcade and he says, 'I want some coffee. I think there's a Starbucks up ahead,'" said Spacey, mimicking Clinton's gravelly drawl.

Clinton was in town to give a speech at the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall. Spacey, of course, was here to shoot "House of Cards."

The two are pals, Spacey told Letterman, and Clinton "loves" when he mimics his voice.

"We pulled over to Starbucks ... and the whole place sort of went crazy," Spacey said. Clinton chatted with people in the coffee shop.

"I think this got more coverage than his speech," Spacey said.

The actor poked fun at Clinton's beverage choice — a decaf coffee.

"If you're going to go to Starbucks, get a Frappuccino or something," he said.
