Neal McDonough as Bill Clinton
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

Carrie Coon as Hillary Clinton
Coon steals scenes in whatever TV show she’s in, no matter if it’s The Leftovers
, or The Sinner
. We could totally see her as a jilted First Lady.

Tracy Letts as Ken Starr
Perhaps Coon could convince her husband, this Homeland
actor, to play Starr, the independent counsel who investigated Clinton.

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.

Margo Martindale as Lucianne Goldberg
The author and literary agent who advised Linda Tripp to record conversations with Monica Lewinsky? What about this Emmy winner from The Americans

Frankie Faison as Vernon Jordan
This alum of The Wire
— who also starred in Banshee
and The Village
— is our pick for Jordan, an advisor to Clinton at the time.

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 American Crime Story producers have 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?
From historical dramas to true crime favorites.
We’ve done some dream casting for the upcoming season, so flip through the gallery above to see our picks.
