Argo's Clea Duvall And The Killing's Billy Campbell Join Lifetime's Lizzie Borden Movie
Another American Horror Story: Asylum star has signed on for a Lizzie Borden project, only it's not the same project. Both HBO and Lifetime are developing Borden's story for the small screen. Clea Duvall is set to play a role in Lifetime's planned biopic. Her casting comes along with word that The Killing's Billy Campbell has also boarded the TV movie, which will star Christina Ricci as the tried and acquitted woman accused of murdering her father and stepmother.
Earlier this month, we learned that Christina Ricci was set to star in the biopic, which tells the story of Lizzie Borden, the infamous woman who was accused of killing her parents with an axe in 1892. Today TVLine reports that Duvall and Campbell are also set to appear in the film. Campbell will play Borden's attorney Andrew Jennings, while Duvall is on board to play Lizzie's sister Emma.
As TVLine notes, HBO is also developing a Lizzie Borden project. That one's set to star Chloe Sevigny, who shares an American Horror Story Season 2 credit with Duvall. It doesn't sound like HBO's project or the Lifetime movie have titles yet.
Duvall began to make a name for herself with a string of 90s movies, including Can't Hardly Wait, The Faculty and She's All That. More recently, after playing the role of Sofie on Carnivale and recurring as FBI Agent Audrey Hanson in Heroes, she went on to play a part in the Oscar winning film Argo and played Wendy in the most recent season of American Horror Story. And Buffy fans will remember her as the invisible girl in the "Out of Mind, Out of Sight" episode.
Campbell's TV credits go all the way back to the 80's series Dynasty and Crime Story. He also starred in Once and Again and played a role in The O.C. and The 4400. More recently, he played Darren Richmond in The Killing.
