Corey’s fame expanded when he played the character of Peter Russo in the TV Drama series “House of Cards”. “In House of Cards”, he was a man with good intentions for the constituency he was representing but alcohol and womanizing made Frank Underwood bully him until he lost the respect his people gave him and eventually paid with his life.

He portrayed the character of Peter Russo so well that viewers who were angry with him for letting his constituency down came to the reality that it was only a movie and Corey was wearing his character like a badge.

Corey was nominated in Critics’ Choice Television Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series, he was also nominated in Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor Series, Miniseries or Television Film, and finally, he was nominated in Satellite Award for Best Supporting Actor Series, Miniseries or Television Film.
