Jimmy Fallon's "House of Cards" parody has a surprise guest

Jimmy Fallon parodies "House of Cards" with "House of Cue Cards" on "The Tonight Show." NBC

Jimmy Fallon has spoofed TV favorites on "The Tonight Show" before -- "Breaking Bad," "Game of Thrones" and "Downton Abbey" among them -- and his latest spot-on spoof takes aim at "House of Cards."

"House of Cue Cards," as his version's called, has Fallon doing the same fourth wall-breaking monologues Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) does on the Netflix hit. There are also some secret text messages, a meal at Freddy's barbecue, a smoking scene by a window and Ellen Barken doing her best Claire Underwood impression.

The two-parter ends with a mysterious meeting at a subway station. But the other person on the platform might surprise you.
