Cast

Jeff Daniels

as James Comey

Outstanding Lead Actor In A Limited Or Anthology Series Or Movie

…a perfectly cast Jeff Daniels…

– Indiewire

Daniels is inspired casting… he captures his character’s starched righteousness wholly.

– New York Times

Brendan Gleeson

as Donald J. Trump

Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Limited Or Anthology Series Or Movie

Played with a growly, lion-like intensity by the great Brendan Gleeson, Trump is a man that undoes Comey’s belief in codes and norms, makes him squirm.

– Rolling Stone

Gleeson, wearing tangerine-tinted makeup and a perpetual scowl, channels the president’s body language and the cadence of his voice, right down to his frequent loud inhalations and sniffles. He becomes the man without ever slipping into caricature.

– Vulture

Holly Hunter

as Sally Yates
