The FX anthology series “American Crime Story” has found its Bill Clinton for the show’s upcoming third season, “Impeachment.” Deadline reports that Oscar-nominated actor Clive Owen will play Clinton.

As we reported back in August, Monica Lewinsky is on board as a producer.

The third installment in the franchise follows the well-received “The People v. O.J. Simpson” in 2016 and “The Assassination of Gianni Versace” in 2018. “Impeachment,” which focuses on the Lewinsky scandal, is scheduled to premiere Sunday, Sept. 27, 2020.

“Owen joins Sarah Paulson, who will play Linda Tripp, Beanie Feldstein, who will play Monica Lewinsky, and Annaleigh Ashford, who will play Paula Jones in the limited series,” Deadline reports, noting that the Hillary Clinton role has not yet been cast.

“‘Impeachment’ is written by Sarah Burgess, who executive produces alongside returning ‘ACS’ team Ryan Murphy, Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Brad Falchuk, Larry Karaszewski, Scott Alexander, Alexis Martin Woodall and Paulson,” Deadline notes. “Feldstein, Henrietta Conrad and Jemima Khan are also producing. The limited series is based on Jeffrey Toobin’s bestselling book ‘A Vast Conspiracy: The Real Story of the Sex Scandal That Nearly Brought Down a President.'”
