Brendan Fraser is on board.


Fraser will portray J. Paul Getty’s eccentric private investigator and master fixer James Fletcher Chace, who hails from Texas. The ten-episode drama — which is executive-produced by Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire) and premieres in January — also stars Donald Sutherland (as J. Paul Getty) and Hilary Swank (as J. Paul Getty III’s mother Gail).

You would think this series would be riveting.  I wish I liked it more. I've been doing online reading to refresh my memory of the kidnapping, as it occurred when I was a child.  Of course, the names are well known.

Den of Geek posted a largely positive review of episode 2. They mentioned my favorite bit about the episode, which is the way that Fletcher Chace (Brendan Fraser) breaks the fourth wall  to talk directly to the audience. http://www.denofgeek.com/us/tv/trust/272244/trust-episode-2-review-lone-star
