Edie Falco played the wife of a gangster, a drug addicted nurse and Lyle and Erik MenendezDefender. Now she is following in the footsteps of a former first lady.

A source confirms E! News Actress Nurse Jackie has been cast in the role of politician Hillary Clinton for Ryan Murphy’s third season of American Crime Story.

The upcoming season of the FX anthology series revolves around the impeachment of President Bill Clinton after his affair with the White House intern Monica Lewinsky.

In 2019 FX CEO John Landgrave The Hollywood Reporter told The Hollywood Reporter that the former first couple won’t play a huge role in Impeachment: American Crime Story. He explained at the time: “Hillary is actually not a significant character in Impeachment because it is really told from the point of view of these women who were really far from the center of power.”

These women he is referring to are Linda Tripp, Paula Jones and Lewinksy, which have already been occupied.
