'The Comey Rule' Shows Brendan Gleeson as Donald Trump in First Look

Showtime has shared the two first look photos at their upcoming political project The Comey Rule!

Jeff Daniels stars as the former FBI Director James Comey and Brendan Gleeson as President Donald Trump in a TV adaptation of the Comey’s 2018 book A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership, The Comey Rule.

According to press release, The Comey Rule won’t be a biopic on one political feature but instead is an “insider’s journey down the corridors of power, where decision-makers struggle to apply old norms to a dramatic new paradigm in the face of Russia’s deep and unprecedented penetration into American politics, with our nation’s rule of law hanging in the balance. Each character’s actions in these historic months made the careers of some, destroyed the careers of others and helped shape the incendiary political landscape we live in today.”

The Comey Rule also stars Holly Hunter as former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates, Michael Kelly as former FBI Director Andrew McCabe, Jennifer Ehle as Patrice Comey, Scoot McNairy as former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Jonathan Banks as former National Intelligence Director James Clapper, Oona Chaplin as former FBI lawyer Lisa Page, Amy Seimetz as former FBI lawyer Trisha Anderson, Steven Pasquale as former FBI agent Peter Strzok, Peter Coyote as Robert Mueller, and Kingsley Ben-Adir as President Barack Obama.

The Comey Rule will air the two-part, four-hour series on Showtime on back-to-back nights in November, following the 2020 presidential election.
