Edie Falco has been cast as Hillary Clinton in Impeachment: American Crime Story. According to multiple reports, the Golden Globe-winning actress is the latest big name to be cast in the Ryan Murphy produced FX series, which will detail the events surrounding the impeachment of President Bill Clinton.
According to FX, the series will go inside the national scandal that made Monica Lewinsky, Linda Tripp and Paula Jones key figures in the country’s first impeachment proceedings in over a century. Based on Jeffrey Toobin’s bestselling book, A Vast Conspiracy: The Real Story of the Sex Scandal That Nearly Brought Down a President, the Washington, D.C.-set installment will be written and executive produced by Sarah Burgess with Lewinsky also serving as a producer.
