Christopher Plummer to play Cardinal Law in Showtime's Our Fathers

Veteran actor Christopher Plummer is set to star in Our Fathers, Showtime's adaptation of David France's book about the sexual abuse scandal in the U.S. Roman Catholic Church. Plummer will play Boston's controversial Cardinal Bernard Law, who, with his repeated failure to remove abusive priests from the ministry, found himself at the center of the crisis, leading to his resignation in December 2002. Plummer's work portraying real people has included The Insider, in which he played CBS news man Mike Wallace, and the HBO TV movie Winchell, in which he played President Franklin Roosevelt.
