Hyde Park on Hudson Trailer: Bill Murray as FDR

by at . Comments

Franklin Delano Roosevelt had a thing for cousins. His wife Eleanor was his fifth cousin once removed, and the new film Hyde Park on the Hudson presents the story of his love affair with another distant cousin, Margaret Suckley. Check out the trailer for the new film, which stars Bill Murray as the longest serving president.

The film, opening December 7, takes place during a royal visit from the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth. George VI was the subject of 2010's Best Picture, The King's Speech (visit this page for The King's Speech quotes).

From the trailer, the film looks to be a fun and witty drama, and with Murray leading the cast, Hyde Park on the Hudson is sure to deliver.

Murray began his career as a comedic actor on Saturday Night Live and in films such as Ghostbusters and Caddyshack (His Caddyshack quotes are some of the most repeated film lines in history), but in the last decade or so, he has proven to be a thoughtful and engaging dramatic actor.
