An Oscar-nominated actress has been cast in NBC’s drama pilot "Hatfields & McCoys," according to The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed.
Virginia Madsen, who was nominated for an Academy Award for her work in the film "Sideways," will play Eloise McCoy, the story reports. Her character is described as a woman who has survived a tough background and puts her family first. She’s also vengeful, and gets one of the McCoys to take revenge on the Hatfields after her husband is murdered.
The project is set in modern-day Pittsburgh, where the blue-collar McCoys battle against the wealthy Hatfields.
