FX’s Newest Anthological Series about Bill Gates has grown its cast with the new addition of Billy Eichner. Billy Eichner, who had previously worked with FX on American Horror Story, has been given the role of an influential blogger, Matt Drudge, rising to the top of the media through his journalistic career during the time of Bill Clinton’s impeachment.
Monica Lewinsky is the producer because of her first-hand experience with this story. “I told her, ‘Nobody should tell your story but you, and it’s kind of gross if they do,'” said executive producer Ryan Murphy.
The show will start filming March 21, meaning it will most likely not meet the FX premiere date before the presidential elections.
