Brendan Fraser Joins FX Series About The Kidnapping Of J. Paul Getty III


FX's upcoming 10-episode drama Trust was already looking impressive with Donald Sutherland and Hilary Swank set to star and Danny Boyle on board to produce and direct. Now the series about the real-life kidnapping of J. Paul Getty III in 1973 has added Brendan Fraser.

The former Mummy star will play James Fletcher Chace, a private investigator and fixer for J. Paul Getty (Sutherland). Harris Dickinson will play the boy and Swank will be his mother, Gail Getty.

Production will take place in London and Rome starting this month with a planned January 2018 debut. Simon Beaufoy and Christian Colson join Boyle as executive producers with Beaufoy writing. Fraser was last seen in the Showtime series The Affair.
