Peter Sarsgaard to star in new 'The Looming Tower' Hulu series
UPI News Service, 03/21/2017
Peter Sarsgaard has joined the ensemble of Hulu's original drama series "The Looming Tower."
The 46-year-old "Jackie" and "The Magnificent Seven" star will play Martin Schmidt, "a CIA analyst who invariably believes he's by far the smartest person in the room" in the 10-episode drama, a press release from the streaming service said.
Co-starring Jeff Daniels, Tahar Rahim, Michael Stuhlberg, Bill Camp, Virginia Kull, Louis Cancelmi and Sullivan Jones, the show is based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning expose by Lawrence Wright.
"'The Looming Tower' traces the rising threat of Osama bin Laden and al-Qaida, and takes a controversial look at how the rivalry between the CIA and FBI may have inadvertently set the stage for the tragedy of 9/11 and the war in Iraq," the press release said.
