In the aftermath of the tragic 2010 BP oil spill, Colin Price (Nicolas Cage), an idealistic but flawed New Orleans congressman, is forced to confront his dysfunctional life after his career is destroyed in a sex scandal. Nielsen will portray Price’s wife, Deborah, a high-powered attorney with political ambitions of her own. Fonda will portray Colin’s father Rayne Price, the former mayor of New Orleans, still an imposing figure in the political arena. Batt will portray Mark Lavin; a Wall Street financier who caters to the big oil companies and wants the oil spill to be a blip on the screen, and Pierce will portray Frank Legrand, Price’s Chief of Staff and one of the first to see his boss’s career going off the rails.
