Brendan Fraser Trust

TVLine Items: Brendan Fraser Boards FX's Trust, Preacher Trailer and More

FX has a lot of Trust in Brendan Fraser.

The actor has joined the network’s forthcoming limited series about the 1973 kidnapping of Getty oil fortune heir John Paul Getty III (played by newcomer Harris Dickinson).

Fraser will portray J. Paul Getty’s eccentric private investigator and master fixer James Fletcher Chace, who hails from Texas. The ten-episode drama — which is executive-produced by Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire) and premieres in January — also stars Donald Sutherland (as J. Paul Getty) and Hilary Swank (as J. Paul Getty III’s mother Gail).

Fraser’s TV credits include The Affair, Texas Rising and Scrubs.
