Matthew Broderick to star in ‘Katrina: American Crime Story’

Award winning actor Matthew Broderick will star in FX’s “Katrina: American Crime Story,” Variety reports. He’ll play former FEMA head Michael Brown.

Brown resigned from his position in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Many felt he was slow to respond to the storm that eventually killed more than a thousand people.
