Break Out Your Cum-Stained Gap Dress, Because “American Crime Story” May Take On The Clinton/Lewinsky Sex Scandal

January 19, 2017 / Posted by:

American Crime Story’s second season, which is about the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, hasn’t even started shooting yet but Ryan Murphy is already looking beyond season two. The third season of ACS will follow sociopath killer Andrew Cunanan (and thank all the gods for Ryan not casting Lady Gaga as Donatella Versace), and it looks like the fourth season may take us back to the days of cigar sex, lies and berets.

The Hollywood Reporter says that the producers of ACS and FX have optioned Jeffrey Toobin’s 2000 best-seller A Vast Conspiracy: The Real Sex Scandal That Nearly Brought Down a President. The first season of ACS was based on Jeffrey Toobin’s book about the O.J. Simpson trial. The synopsis for A Vast Conspiracy goes like this:

It was the most extraordinary public saga of our time, and Jeffrey Toobin gives us a definitive history of the ordeal that very nearly brought down a president. Here is the whole story of the Clinton sex scandals — from its beginnings in a Little Rock hotel to its climax on the floor of the United States Senate with only the second vote on presidential removal in American history. Rich with Shakespearean characters and dramatic secrets, fueled with the high octane of a sensational legal thriller, and tinged by misguided, outlandish behavior that was played out at the very highest levels, Toobin’s A Vast Conspiracy brings a dignity and integrity to this story that it has never before received.

The Clinton sex scandals will shape forever how we think about the signature issues of our day — sex, privacy, civil rights, and, yes, cigars. A Vast Conspiracy will shape forever how we think about the Clinton scandals.

Sources tell THR that Ryan Murphy and company may be looking to do the Clinton/Lewinsky sex scandal sooner rather than later, because they are apparently meeting with actresses about playing Monica or Linda Tripp. I’d bet my weekly weed budget that Ryan Murphy’s inbox was recently visited by an e-mail from John Travolta and attached to it was a clip of John wearing the hell out of a Penny Marshall wig while delivering a captivating monologue as Linda Tripp. John Goodman, who?!

As for who will play Monica, I’m going to be serious for once in my life and say that Alison Pill may be able to pull it off. But I’ll be happy with anyone whose name is not Lea Michele. Although, I doubt Lea would take the role anyway, because she’d have to gain some chunk. And if she gained some chunk, she probably wouldn’t want to do her first love: thirsty naked Instagram photo shoots. Lea definitely has her priorities in order!
