Monica Lewinsky to produce Clinton scandal American Crime Story

By Alexandra Heilbron on August 7, 2019 | 31 Comments

Monica Lewinsky (l), Beanie Feldstein (r)Following in the footsteps of the Golden Globe-winning The People vs. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, the FX Network series will have a third season, this time about the impeachment of President Bill Clinton after the sexual scandal involving White House intern Monica Lewinsky, who will produce.

Sarah Paulson, who won a Golden Globe and a Primetime Emmy for her role as prosecutor Marcia Clark in the O.J. Simpson series, will be playing Linda Tripp, the civil servant who secretly recorded Lewinsky and Clinton’s phone calls.

Monica Lewinsky was 22 when she engaged in sexual relations with Clinton, 27 years her senior. She was asked by American Crime Story executive producer Ryan Murphy to sign on as a producer for the new season, which will be titled Impeachment: American Crime Story.

Lewinsky told Vanity Fair: ” I’m so grateful for the growth we’ve made as a society that allows people like me who have been historically silenced to finally reintroduce my voice to the conversation. This isn’t just a me problem. Powerful people, often men, take advantage of those subordinate to them in myriad ways all the time.”

Beanie Feldstein, younger sister of Jonah Hill, has been cast as Lewinsky. The roles of Bill and Hillary Clinton have not yet been cast.

Impeachment: American Crime Story will debut on the FX Network on September 27, 2020. ~Alexandra Heilbron[poll id=”1623″]

    im sorry she is no victim and for her to include herself is disgusting

    They need to focus on the Murders that Clinton’s have been responsible for all these years that seem to just fly under the radar as well as all the drugs. If You haven’t already you need to serious check these out and understand how serious this is.

  11. Max MacDonald • August 8, 2019 @ 10:14 AM

    LOL. Could you imagine Dana Carvey as Bill Clinton?!! I would die if he dropped a “Well isn’t that special?!” in one of his lines. I think either Jake Gyllenhaal or George Clooney. But not Dana Carey but that’s hysterical though.

    Kevin Costner.

    Who should play Hillary Clinton?

  15. SoulMocha • August 8, 2019 @ 1:27 PM

    A willing participant of legal age is not a victim. You can’t cry victim just because people found out you got some action from the president. If you went to his office willingly alone at night. You wanted something to happen.
    It’s like going to someone’s house or apartment alone at night that is an open invitation what do you think would happen. If you don’t want bad things to happen don’t put yourself in the situation. Use your head a little.
    I was raped but I don’t claim to be a victim because I invited the person over to my house that was empty. I didn’t want it but I put myself in the situation.

    Fox is a Russian troll and Lewinsky is a spy controlled by Nazis, Russian Republicans and Trump, who should sue her, Fox, Republicans, Putin and Trump, should be Hillary for she and all of them to be seducing her husband and tried to damage her marriage and her good carrier as politician and stole her presidency, too; for all their false claims and conspiracy against Hillary, her husband who was the President and USA. FOR ALL THEIR LIES AND TREASON!

  18. Mari • August 8, 2019 @ 2:13 PM

    I am totally disagree. Why because they Clintons are not any criminals, the criminals and killers are Trump, Republicans and Putin, why they don’t impeach them and make a great story of corruption and crimes with all of them and their liar Killer Mafia, always against Democrats, USA and the World???, because they are the New Nazis and the true killers and terrorists killing people.

    @soulmocha…seek help.

    Matthew Mcconaughey would be great!

  23. Snepts • August 8, 2019 @ 9:58 PM

    Why not Denzel as Bill and Jonah Hill as Hillary?

  24. Snepts • August 8, 2019 @ 10:02 PM

    A year from now we’ll be asking who should play Trump and who should play Stormy Daniels. How about Jennifer Lawrence as Stormy? Obviously, it’s a given Alec Baldwin should play Trump.

    Good that SHE gets to tell her side of the story. She was totally abused in this whole fiasco and HE got off scot free like the creep he is. I hope she does not pull any punches with it, he deserves full exposure, him and his butch wife. I will go see it…..I think Matthew McConaughey would be good, he has a kind of slimey about him that would show Clinton up for what he was.

  26. MA • August 9, 2019 @ 9:43 AM

    Mari… need professional help. The Clintons ARE criminals, worse than any we have seen in the U.S. Trump, while not likeable, is ten times the leader Clinton was and you obviously have NO clue what a Nazi is comparing Trump to one. Check out history before spouting off like a ten year old.

  27. Snepts • August 9, 2019 @ 11:34 PM

    The only thing Trump can lead is a hate campaign.

  28. Snepts • August 9, 2019 @ 11:51 PM

    I can’t believe no one’s suggested Ken Watanabe as Al Gore.

  29. Doug Wills • August 10, 2019 @ 11:27 AM

    Keifer Sutherland-he was a great President in “Designated Survivor”.

  30. Doug Wills • August 10, 2019 @ 11:28 AM

    I meant “Kiefer”

  31. David • August 12, 2019 @ 1:32 AM

    Do you have too? Haven’t we suffered enough already?

    @soulmocha You are indeed correct about your first two sentences, The rest, however, has no basis in reality. Even if you invited the person in, even if it is your husband, being forced to have sex against your will is rape and rape is wrong on so many levels. Your part of the blame is so small it is insignificant.
