Two-time Tony winner Patti LuPone has landed a role in mega-producer Ryan Murphy’s new Netflix series, Hollywood.
In a Time Magazine profile, Murphy divulged that LuPone will join previously announced Tony nominee Holland Taylor (Ann) in his original series about Tinseltown’s relationship with the sex industry over the years. According to the Glee creator, it’s about “how absolutely everything has changed and nothing has changed.”
This is not LuPone’s first time working with Murphy. She appeared on Glee as herself, American Horror Story: Coven as a religious fanatic, and Season 2 of Pose as an uptight real estate broker.
Hollywood is anticipated to debut on the streaming service in May 2020 as part of Murphy's deal with Netflix, which includes this month’s The Politician, starring Ben Platt. Also due from Murphy in 2020 are the film adaptations of The Boys in the Band (starring the recent Broadway cast) and The Prom, featuring Nicole Kidman and Meryl Streep.
Murphy still has ties to Fox, where he launched a phenomenon with AHS and American Crime Story. The third installation of the latter will follow the Monica Lewinsky scandal, starring Beanie Feldstein and Tony winner Annaleigh Ashford.
