Clive Owen To Play Bill Clinton In IMPEACHMENT: AMERICAN CRIME STORY on FX

Clive Owen To Play Bill Clinton In IMPEACHMENT: AMERICAN CRIME STORY on FX
Oscar-nominated actor Clive Owen ("Gemini Man", "The Knick") is set to star as Bill Clinton in the third season of FX's acclaimed series "American Crime Story", which is due to air in 2020. Titled "Impeachment", the new season will focus on the sex scandal that rocked the Clinton presidency and it's based on Jeffrey Toobin's 1997 book "A Vast Conspiracy: The Real Story of the Sex Scandal That Nearly Brought Down a President".

The cast also includes Sarah Paulson as LInda Tripp, Beanie Feldstein as Monica Lewinsky, and Annaleigh Ashford as Paula Jones. The Hillary Clinton role is still being cast.

The limited series will be written by Sarah Burgess, who will also executive produce alongside Ryan Murphy, Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Brad Falchuk, Larry Karaszewski, Scott Alexander, Alexis Martin Woodall and Paulson. Lewinsky is also a producer.

Production was supposed to begin in february, but it was pushed back to late March as Murphy is directing the musical comedy "The Prom" starring Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman, Awkwafina and James Corden.

Here's what Ryan Murphy had to say about "Impeachment":
"We do a show that is very thoroughly fact-checked and vetted and based on bestselling books by Jeffrey Toobin, I think the reason why it's interesting is because you don't have to change anything to feel modern. And I think that idea of impeachment obviously with Trump is fascinating. I wouldn't say that we're changing things that much or mentioning Trump at all in our narrative."
