Tony Goldwyn, Josh Lucas, Michael C Hall, Marton Csokas & Kate Walsh join the Watergate thriller, Felt!
A stellar cast has been locked for Felt, a political thriller that tells the story made famous in All the President’s Men, from the vantage point of the top FBI official the Washington Post called Deep Throat. Writer-director Peter Landesman, who previously landed Liam Neeson to play No. 2 FBI man Mark Felt and Diane Lane to play his wife Audrey, has just about set the complete cast, minus the actor who’ll play the pivotal role of Bob Woodward.
Here are the new additions to the cast: Scandal’s Tony Goldwyn will play FBI intel chief Ed Miller, and Kate Walsh will play his wife Pat; Josh Lucas plays FBI No. 3 Charlie Bates; Dexter‘s Michael C. Hall will play John Dean, architect of the Watergate cover-up who was desperate to plug the Washington Post leaks; Marton Csokas and Tom Sizemore play Felt’s FBI rivals Pat Gray and Bill Sullivan; Wendi McClendon-Covey plays Felt secretary Carol Tschudy; Ike Barenholtz plays Angelo Lano, who headed the FBI investigation into the leak; Bruce Greenwood plays Time magazine reporter Sandy Smith, to whom Felt also leaked Watergate intel; Spotlight’s Brian D’Arcy James plays FBI special agent Robert Kunkel; Noah Wyle plays Stan Pottinger, who prosecuted Felt and other FBI officials for ordering break-ins to search homes of suspected domestic terrorist radicals, without warrants; and Maika Monroe plays Felt’s daughter Joan. Colm Meaney and Ray Donovan’s Eddie Marsan are closing up deals to play CIA men.
