TAMPA, FL (WFLA) -

The International Indian Film Academy announced Wednesday that actor Kevin Spacey will lead an acting workshop in Tampa.

Spacey will visit the Bay area during the 15th Videocon D2H IIFA Weekend. The acting workshop, scheduled for Saturday April 26th, is one of many events taking place during the weekend leading up to the IIFA Awards, sometimes called the "Bollywood Oscars".

Spacey is the star of Netflix's "House of Cards", where he plays Frank Underwood, an increasingly sinister politician with a lust for power. He also won Academy Awards for Best Actor for "The Usual Suspects" and "American Beauty".

Kevin Spacey has also been the artistic director of the Old Vic Theater Company in London for the last ten years.
