Signs of Political Animals in NYC

Last week ads for the USA Network‘s summer mini-series Political Animals started appearing around Manhattan.

The six-part series stars Sigourney Weaver and (Belfast-born)  Ciáran Hinds as the ersatz Hillary and Bill, here known as Elaine Barrish Hammond and Bud Hammond.

Also part of the cast – and in a role that looks like good fun – is Ellen Burstyn as the opinionated mother of the Secretary of State, Margaret Barrish.

Sadly, so far all of the short cast promos the USA Network has been running feature everyone but Ciáran Hinds, which is a pity because even if audiences don’t recognize his name, they will know his face, given his work in so many movies, both mainstream and independent.
