Former “The Mummy” franchise star Brendan Fraser has been cast in FX’s anthology series “Trust”.
The “Slumdog Millionaire” team of Danny Boyle, Simon Beaufoy and Christian Colson are behind the ten-episode series with the first season telling the story of John Paul Getty III (Harris Dickinson), heir to the Getty oil fortune.
Set in 1973, the young Getty is kidnapped in Rome and his mafia captors are banking on a multi-million dollar ransom. The series is described as being equal parts family history, dynastic saga and examination of the corrosive power of money.
Fraser will play patriarch J. Paul Getty’s private investigator, James Fletcher Chace, an eccentric Texan master fixer. Donald Sutherland and Hilary Swank also star.
Fraser is also a series regular on AT&T Audience Network’s series “Condor” which he’s currently filming in Toronto.
