David Corenswet Appearing in Another Ryan Murphy Series For Netflix
Films can change the world.
That’s certainly the mantra at the center of Ryan Murphy‘s Hollywood.
As E! readers may recall, for his Netflix miniseries, Murphy took the opportunity to rewrite history. How?
Well, in this period piece, the straight white leading man—played by, the oh so dashing, David Corenswet—doesn’t walk away with all the glory. Rather, it’s Hollywood‘s underdogs that find themselves victorious.
Per Murphy, he and co-creator Ian Brennan created a Hollywood he wished he was a part of.
“It’s a wonderful universe to create,” the 54-year-old industry legend said back in May. “And I don’t know, I would say I write, not about the world that I live in, but the world I want to live in, and this is a world I wanted to live in.”
Hollywood follows real-life Tinseltown figures, including Jack Picking as Rock Hudson, Michelle Krusiec as Anna May Wong and Jim Parsons as Henry Willson, as well as fictional characters.
The cast also includes Darren Criss as Raymond Ainsley, Patti LuPone as Avis Amberg, Jeremy Pope as Archie Coleman, Laura Harrier as Camille Washington, Samara Weaving as Claire Wood, Dylan McDermott as Ernest West and Holland Taylor as Ellen Kincaid.
However, that’s just some of the star-studded cast Murphy and Brennan curated for their ideal Hollywood.
