“House of Cards” fans still want an actor named Kevin to star in the Netflix series.

Robbie Pyma started the Change.org petition last week urging Netflix CEO Reed Hastings to swap Kevin Spacey with actor Kevin James for the role of Frank Underwood.

So far, it has received more than 30,000 signatures.

“Losing a great show is hard, no matter the circumstances,” the petition reads. “However with hardship comes the opportunity for a great show to become one of the greatest television shows of all time. I think Kevin James can elevate ‘House of Cards’ to a globally adored franchise like ‘Game of Thrones’ and make the entire world focus on one of the most important Netflix Original series there is.”

Spacey was fired from the series following numerous sexual misconduct allegations, including from “House of Cards” employees. He is now receiving treatment at the Meadows clinic in Arizona.

James is currently starring in the CBS sitcom, “Kevin Can Wait.”
