Quaid, Sheen and Moore Have Special Relationship


Dennis Quaid will star as President Clinton, Michael Sheen will portray British Prime Minister Tony Blair and Julianne Moore will play Hillary Clinton in “The Special Relationship,” an HBO film about the unique and sometimes turbulent political relationship between the newly installed PM and the U.S. president.

The film isn’t greenlit yet but is expected to mark the directing debut of Frost/Nixon playwright Peter Morgan, who wrote the screenplay.

Sheen, who starred as David Frost in Frost/Nixon, played Blair in the Morgan-scripted The Deal and The Queen. Helen McCrory, who played Cherie Blair in The Queen, will reprise that role in “The Special Relationship.”
