Not sure I ever would have thought to cast Ewan McGregor as ’70s disco designer Halston, but that’s why Ryan Murphy is Ryan Murphy and I am not. Also sliiiiiightly troubling is Krysta Rodriguez as Halston’s bestie/muse, Liza Minelli. She just doesn’t seem LIZA enough. I need JAZZ HANDS and FOSSE NECK and BIG, FLUTTERY EYELASHES. But we shall see, I suppose, we shall see.
Also in the cast: Rory Culkin as Joel Schumacher, Rebecca Davan as Elsa Peretti, David Pittu as Joe Eula, Sullivan Jones as Ed Austin, and Gianfranco Rodriguez as Victor Hugo.
Said Murphy on Instagram:
“After a long 20 years of twists and turns, the limited series Halston starring the fantastic Ewan McGregor began production today,” Murphy wrote. “I am so proud of our director and leader Dan Minahan, and Christine Vachon of Killer Films. I am thrilled to be producing this great and meaningful show with them and Alexis Martin Woodall and Pamela Koffler.”
