Brian Fuller’s Katrina: American Crime Story has it’s Bush.
Dennis Quaid has been cast as the maligned 43rd President, who came under fire after his mishandling of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans back in 2005. Quaid joins Annette Bening, Matthew Broderick, and Sarah Paulson.
Quaid will be the second actor to play George W. Bush after Josh Brolin donned the twang for Oliver Stone’s W (not counting arguably the best portrayal of Dubya, Will Ferrell). He will be great, no doubt, and it will be fun to see who Ryan Murphy and Co. cast as Dick Cheney. And maybe Mike Meyers and Kanye can reprise their roles in the whole fiasco…
Murphy is already working on the season 3 follow up to Katrina: American Crime Story. The third season will focus on the murder of Gianni Versace. It will star Ricky Martin, Penelope Cruz, and Darren Criss.
Katrina: American Crime Story won’t premiere on FX until 2018.
