If you thought All The Money In the World was the only J. Paul Getty-related drama on the horizon, guess again: FX has an entire TV series about the Getty family coming up. The Danny Boyle-directed series, called Trust, features Donald Sutherland in the role of cold-hearted billionaire J. Paul Getty, and the first Trust teaser gives us a look at his sure-to-be-memorable performance.
Ridley Scott’s All The Money In the World made headlines recently when Scott decided to remove scenes involving actor Kevin Spacey and reshoot them with Christopher Plummer. Spacey, and now Plummer, plays J. Paul Getty, an oil tycoon who refused to pay the ransom when his grandson John Paul Getty III was kidnapped.

Sutherland is playing the same role in the FX series Trust, and the first Trust teaser shows us Sutherland’s droll, darkly amusing take on the character. Watch it below. Read More »
