Kyle MacLachlan Will Play FDR in ATLANTIC CROSSING

According to The Hollywood Reporter, TWIN PEAKS star Kyle MacLachlan will join Norwegian series Atlantic Crossing. He will play American president Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

During her time in the U.S., the princess and the president became close and many historians credit the relationship with helping to convince Roosevelt to bring America into World War 2.
