According to Deadline, Molly Ringwald will be appearing in Ryan Murphy’s FX anthology series Feud, Feud: Capote’s Women.
On September 21st, Ringwald will make her debut as Shari Dahmer, Jeffrey Dahmer’s stepmother, in the premiere episode of Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, another series created by Ryan Murphy for Netflix.
Ringwald has just been added to the cast of Capote’s Women. Demi Moore is allegedly in talks for a role, joining previously revealed cast members Tom Hollander, Naomi Watts, Calista Flockhart, Diane Lane, and Chloe Sevigny. Joanne Carson, the second wife of Johnny Carson and a close friend of Truman Capote, will be portrayed by Ringwald.
The movie Capote’s Women is based on a novel by Laurence Leamer of the same name. The novel begins in the 1970s and concludes with Capote’s death in 1984.
It focuses on the author (Hollander) and how he betrays many of his female acquaintances by publishing the tell-all article “La Côte Basque 1965” in Esquire in 1975.
Season one of Feud focused on the rivalry between Bette Davis Susan Sarandon and Joan Crawford Jessica Lange on the set of the 1962 film What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?
Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, another Murphy production in which Ringwald features, premieres this Wednesday on Netflix.
Award-winning actress Niecy Nash gives a stirring portrayal as Glenda Cleveland in DAHMER – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story. As portrayed by Evan Peters, serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer brutally murdered seventeen people between 1978 and 1991.
An investigation of the systematic racism and institutional shortcomings of the police that allowed one of America’s most known serial killers to operate openly for almost a decade is the focus of the series. With a cast that includes Richard Jenkins, Molly Ringwald, Michael Learned, Penelope Ann Miller, and Dyllón Burnside.
