He's back and he's funnier than ever. The mischievous, cagey entertainer William Claude Dukenfield starred in some of the best comedies ever.

‘Doctor Who’ Alum Matt Smith Cast in Netflix’s ‘The Crown’ with John Lithgow, Claire Foy

18 June 2015 11:01 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Netflix has found its cast for “The Crown,” an original decades-spanning drama about Queen Elizabeth II and the prime ministers who shaped post-war Britain. The 10-episode series will premiere in 2016.

Claire Foy (“Wolf Hall”) will play Queen Elizabeth II; Matt Smith (“Doctor Who”) will play Philip Mountbatten, Duke of Edinburgh; and John Lithgow (“Third Rock From the Sun”) will play Winston Churchill.

The series is based on Peter Morgan’s play “The Audience.” Morgan also serves as writer on the series, which is described as telling the inside story of two of the most famous addresses in the world — Buckingham Palace and 10 Downing Street — and the intrigues, romances and machinations behind the events that shaped the second half of the 20th century.

“The Audience” starred Helen Mirren, who also played Queen Elizabeth II in Miramax’s “The Queen” feature film, for which Morgan wrote the screenplay.

“The Crown” is produced »

John Lithgow, Claire Foy And Matt Smith Fitted For The Crown On Netflix

18 June 2015 10:50 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Netflix has already delved into the darkest corners of Washington D.C. in House of Cards, and now the streaming service is looking across the pond for another political drama. Today brings news that Dexter alum John Lithgow, Wolf Hall‘s Claire Foy and former Doctor Who lead Matt Smith have secured major roles in The Crown, a period piece that spans decades of British history.

Lithgow will portray Sir Winston Churchill, while Foy will play Queen Elizabeth II and Smith will take on the role of Philip Mountbatten, Duke of Edinburgh. The show looks inside Buckingham Palace and 10 Downing Street, the two main seats of British power, to explore the personal interests, love affairs and political machinations that were at the heart of some of the latter 20th century’s most pivotal events.

The Queen writer Peter Morgan is behind the ambitious series, which also enlists director Stephen Daldry »
