Check out these photos of Bill Murray as FDR that just surfaced from the upcoming film "Hyde Park on Hudson". The film will recount the visit of the British King and Queen to FDR's vacation home in 1939 and the love affair between the president and his distant cousin Margaret Stuckley, played by Laura Linney. Olivia Williams will play a really convincing Eleanor Roosevelt and the King and Queen by Samuel West and Olivia Colman.
I am a big fan of Bill Murray and am glad to see that he will be coming back to the big screen in high style in this film, as well as in the highly anticipated Wes Anderson film, "Moonrise Kingdom" - both slated for next year. If these stills are any indication of how the movie will turn out, then it is going to be amazing. The period wardrobes and sets are superb and the casting looks spot on - I can't wait!
