James Marsden, Uzo Aduba, & Sarah Paulson Join the Cast of FX’s ‘Mrs. America’


Deadline reported, FX has announced the additional cast of Mrs. America.

Uzo Adub, Sarah Paulson and James Marsden are joining the cast with Cate Blanchett, Rose Byrne, Kayli Carter, Ari Graynor, Melanie Lynskey, Margo Martindale, John Slattery, Jeanne Tripplehorn and Tracey Ullman.

Anna Boden and Ryann Fleck will reunite after their Captain Marvel stint to write and direct the first two episodes of Mrs. America.

Mrs. America tells the true story of the movement to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment, and the unexpected backlash led by a conservative woman named Phyllis Schlafly, played by Blanchett. Through the eyes of the women of that era — both Schlafly and second-wave feminists Gloria Steinem, Betty Friedan, Shirley Chisholm, Bella Abzug and Jill Ruckelshaus — the series explores how one of the toughest battlegrounds in the culture wars of the ’70s helped give rise to the Moral Majority and forever shifted our political landscape.
