Who Should Play Bill, Hillary & Other Real-Life 'Impeachment' Figures? (PHOTOS) Chris Hondros/Getty Images Jesse Grant/Getty Images, Pool/Getty Images Neal McDonough as Bill Clinton
Suits and Justified actor is around the same age as Clinton was at the time. Then again, he was reportedly fired from a project for refusing to do sex scenes, so… Lily Lawrence/Getty Images, Mark Wilson/Getty Images Carrie Coon as Hillary Clinton
Coon steals scenes in whatever TV show she’s in, no matter if it’s
The Leftovers, Fargo, or The Sinner. We could totally see her as a jilted First Lady. Rich Polk/Getty Images, Win McNamee/Getty Images Tracy Letts as Ken Starr
Perhaps Coon could convince her husband, this
Homeland and Ladybird actor, to play Starr, the independent counsel who investigated Clinton. Brad Barket/Getty Images, New York Daily News Archive/Getty Images Audra McDonald as Betty Currie
There’s not a whole lot of resemblance between McDonald and Clinton’s former personal secretary, but we’ll take as much of this Tony Award queen on TV as possible.

The author and literary agent who advised Linda Tripp to record conversations with Monica Lewinsky? What about this Emmy winner from
The Americans? Scott Wintrow/Getty Images, Peter Kramer/Getty Images Frankie Faison as Vernon Jordan

The Wire — who also starred in Banshee and The Village — is our pick for Jordan, an advisor to Clinton at the time. Ben Gabbe/Getty Images, Tim Boyle/Getty Images Noah Emmerich as Al Gore
This actor, another
Americans vet, could portray Clinton’s second-in-command, if the script calls for it. He’s almost the right age, too.
Ryan Murphy and the other
producers have American Crime Story already filled three of the roles for the FX anthology’s third season, Impeachment, which will chronicle the sex scandal around then-President Bill Clinton and then-intern Monica Lewinsky. Booksmart star Beanie Feldstein will play Lewinsky, Sarah Paulson will play Linda Tripp, and Masters of Sex star Annaleigh Ashford will play Paula Jones. But what about Bill himself? And Hillary, for that matter? See Also
