Hugh Grant has been cast in the upcoming HBO limited series “The Palace,” joining previously announced cast members Kate Winslet, Matthias Schoenaerts, and Andrea Riseborough. Exact character details for the series are being kept under wraps, and the drama is said to “tell the story of one year within the walls of the palace of an authoritarian regime as it begins to unravel.”
“The Palace” will be the fourth HBO limited series with Winslet in the lead role. Winslet is also attached to star in the HBO limited series “The Trust,” based on the novel of the same name by Hernan Diaz. Prior to that, Winslet starred in the HBO limited series “Mare of Easttown,” for which she won the Emmy Award for best actress in a limited series. Grant previously starred in the critically-acclaimed HBO limited series “The Undoing” opposite Nicole Kidman, receiving both an Emmy and Golden Globe nomination for his work on the show.
