Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss Matthew Broderick being cast in Ryan Murphy’s latest and greatest television outing. Indeed, Broderick will be joining the upcoming Murphyverse limited series Katrina: American Crime Story — the follow-up to the critically acclaimed The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story — as Federal Emergency Management Agency Director Michael D. Brown, who was in charge of the federal disaster response to Hurricane Katrina. (The resemblance is there!) The actor will be joining Annette Bening and Sarah Paulson in the series, which will follow a group of six to eight people “in an attempt to examine all sides of the tragedy, from the Superdome to the hospital to those who were put on buses and dropped off with babies who were forced to wear trash bags for multiple days.” A premiere date has yet to be announced.
