British actor Clive Owen has been cast to play the 42nd president, Bill Clinton, in the upcoming FX series “Impeachment: American Crime Story.”  

The show’s third season will focus on Clinton’s 1998 impeachment trial. Owen’s leading ladies include Beanie Feldstein as Monica Lewinsky and Sarah Paulson as Linda Tripp. The role of former first lady Hillary Clinton has not yet been cast. Lewinsky will produce the season because executive producer Ryan Murphy felt that she was the only person who should be allowed to tell this particular part of American history.

The show will begin production this spring and tentatively air in the fall.
