Damian Lewis to wear crown for Masterpiece

Brody’s got a new job: Damian Lewis (Homeland) will play Henry VIII in Masterpiece’s Wolf Hall on PBS.

The program will follow the meteoric rise of Thomas Cromwell (Mark Rylance) in the Tudor court, from his start as a blacksmith’s son to Henry VIII’s closest advisor. Claire Foy (Little Dorrit) will play Anne Boleyn in the six-part mini-series written by Peter Straughan (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy).

Other casting includes Jonathan Pryce (Cranford) as Cardinal Thomas Wolsey, Joanne Whalley (The Borgias) as Henry’s first wife Katherine of Aragon, and Mark Gatiss (Sherlock) as Stephen Gardiner, Secretary to the King.

Filming has already started in the South West of England for broadcast in 2015 on Masterpiece on PBS and BBC2.
