Laura Linney Cast Opposite Bill Murray in Hyde Park on the Hudson

lauralinney120.jpgDeadline reports that Laura Linney will play Franklin Delano Roosevelt's mistress (and cousin) Daisy in Hyde Park On The Hudson, the story of George VI's 1939 visit to the Roosevelts in their upstate New York home. Bill Murray is slated to play FDR, and I'm slated to cast Eleanor right now -- Kathy Bates, anyone? Not that she wants another mid-century period piece after the creative nadir of Revolutionary Road, of course, but she has command that defies Harry's Law! [Deadline]
