Hollywood history is filled with great rivalries, but few were as big as the one between Bette Davis and Joan Crawford. The actresses never a saw moment not try and take each other down, and that story will be brought to life in the upcoming limited series “Feud” on FX.
Susan Sarandon takes the role of Davis, with Jessica Lange as Crawford, with Ryan Murphy (“American Crime Story,” “Glee“) weaving his magic once again, but aiming to pair the juicy drama with richer thematic subtext. “I wasn’t interested in just doing this broad, campy [show],” he told EW. “I was interested in the idea of sexism, ageism, misogyny. Turning 40, 45, 50 and feeling like you’re at the height of your powers and people saying, ‘Well, you’re done.’”
Co-starring Catherine Zeta-Jones, Alfred Molina, Judy Davis, Kathy Bates, Stanley Tucci and Sarah Paulson, “Feud” debuts on March 5th.
