An actor who already has one Emmy for a starring role in an HBO biographical production will give it another go, reports Digital Spy.
Paul Giamatti, who won an Emmy for HBO’s "John Adams" miniseries, will return to the premium network to play another larger-than-life biographical character, according to the story. Giamatti will play Russian Premier Nikita Khrushchev in a film based on Peter Carlson’s book "K Blows Top."
The focus of the story is Khrushchev’s infamous visit to America in 1959 in which the Russian leader went to New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Iowa, Pittsburgh, and Camp David with President Eisenhower.
Tom Hanks will co-produce, along with Paul Bernbaum, Perri Kipperman and David Stern.
