Fans are dying for more info on the upcoming "Impeachment: American Crime Story" which is based on President Bill Clinton's sex scandal. Following the O.J. Simpson and Gianni Versace installments, this one might be the most exciting yet. Especially, since Monica Lewinsky herself is producing the show, and will finally be able to portray her side of the story.

The more prevalent characters have been cast except for Hilary Clinton's person, but so far it seems to be an A-List cast. Here are some of the actors and their roles.

Beanie Feldstein

Fresh off her success from Greta Gerwig's "Lady Bird" and Olivia Wilde's "Booksmart", Beanie Feldstein is ready to take on one of the most iconic women in American history. Moreover, she'll have the real Monica Lewinsky on set with her and willing to give her first-hand insight.

Lewinsky was caught up in President Bill Clinton's impeachment when their affair was revealed. She became a household name, at a disturbingly younger age than Clinton, but her career in politics was over.

President Bill Clinton will be played by Clive Owen who is most known for his academy nominated role in Mike Nichols's "Closer". He will most likely not get any advice or insight from Clinton, considering he's not on the greatest terms with producer Lewinsky.

Clinton, of course, was president of the United States of America and had initiated an affair with a much younger woman in his office. He was also accused of sexual harassment by another young woman, Paula Jones.

Billy Eichner

Billy Eichner will play Matt Drudge, the journalist that revealed Clinton and Lewinsky's affair. Eichner is most known for his web series "Billy On The Street" and other projects like "Parks And Recreation" and "American Horror Story".

Matt Drudge is known for his conservative site "Drudge Report" which contrasts starkly to Eichner's loudly liberal background. Eichner is a supporter of "Swing Left" which ironically focuses on kicking President Trump out of the White House's next election. We'll see how he compartmentalizes the role.

Sarah Paulson

Sarah Paulson, a veteran of "American Horror Story" and "The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story" will be playing the notorious Linda Tripp. Tripp was the informant that blew up the Clinton and Lewinsky affair.

Tripp will most likely not be shed on good light since her involvement in the impeachment case required her recorded private phone calls with Lewinsky. Paulson's known for playing intense characters. So whatever producer Lewinsky provides as research, Paulson will bring to life onscreen.
