Just Some Casual Dream Casting For American Crime Story's Lewinsky Season

19 January 2017 6:30 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

When it comes to American Crime Story, it seems like nothing is off-limits for creator Ryan Murphy. With The People v. O.J. Simpson under his belt and confirmed seasons about the Hurricane Katrina aftermath and the 1997 murder of designer Gianni Versace, the TV genius has added another project to the list. This week, FX reportedly signed up for a season on the Clinton/Lewinsky scandal, which rocked the political world back in the '90s. Naturally, we came up with a few casting ideas, many of which have been culled from Murphy's pool of go-to stars. Related:The Fascinating Details of Ryan Murphy's New FX Season, FeudThe People v.

Brie & Aniston, Gomez & Dern: Dreamcasting Ryan Murphy's Monica Lewinsky Mini

19 January 2017 2:39 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

One of the most enduring controversies of the last century may finally get a TV treatment. And as Ryan Murphy looks to tackle the sex sandal that almost crippled a presidency in an upcoming American Crime Story season, the most pressing question is a matter of casting. Who could possibly play Monica Lewinsky and Linda Tripp?

That these women have never been the subject of a thorough scripted examination is kind of a shock, especially in the age of instant biopics, and it makes their shoes much harder to fill. But there's an even more formidable challenge, one Murphy »

Katrina, Monica and Versace: Ryan Murphy Spills on New Seasons of American Crime Story

19 January 2017 12:58 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

A version of this article originally appeared on EW.com.

Don’t expect future seasons of American Crime Story to focus on the courtroom.

“We’ll never do another trial again like we did with People v. O.J. Simpson,” executive producer Ryan Murphy tells EW. “I don’t want to do the Menendez thing — we did that. So every year, every season we’re looking at a way to sort of plant the flag of that show into something but have it be dramatically different.”

To that end, Murphy, 51, already has two seasons of American Crime Story in development for »

46 Days Until "Feud"

18 January 2017 11:33 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

first promotional shot from Feud

The new Ryan Murphy anthology TV series' first eight-episode season, premieres on Sunday March 5th (yes exactly one week after the Oscars which seems very kind). The season looks at the legendarily bitchy Joan Crawford (Jessica Lange) vs Bette Davis (Susan Sarandon) wars. Two Oscar winners playing two Oscar winners. We're in!

We don't want to know too much ahead of time as that ruins so many TV shows and movies these days but it would be nice to have a leaked list of films referenced beyond Whatever Happened to Baby Jane (1962) so we could do a little revisiting of some key titles before the premiere, though it seems likely that the series will also cover the production of Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte (1964) given the character list in the credits. Jessica Lange doesn't look or feel much like Joan Crawford in face or persona which »
