Oscar-winner Catherine Zeta-Jones is not only a brilliant actress, the Welsh-born thespian is also brilliant at keeping a rather low profile.
In the early 2000’s Zeta-Jones was the highest paid actress in Hollywood, but since then, she’s very carefully plotted her career to avoid over-saturation and burn-out. In fact, she’s taken several sabbaticals that have found her away from acting for years at a time and focusing instead on her humanitarian efforts.
But with two movies already shot for 2016 (Dad’s Army and The Godmother), Zeta-Jones appears to be busy with Hollywood once again. Not only that, she announced today that she would be starring in the new FX television series Feud, which will find her playing Oscar-winning actress Olivia de Havilland.
Ryan Murphy’s upcoming anthology drama will also star Alfred Molina, Stanley Tucci, Judy Davis, Susan Sarandon and Jessica Lange. Sarandon will take on the role of Bette Davis while Lange will be playing Joan Crawford. The series will devote itself to the vagaries and particulars of famous feuds each season.
This will be Zeta-Jones’ first appearance in a television role in exactly 20 years.
