Who doesn’t love a good story about bad girls? Truman Capote was no exception, and the long-awaited successor to Ryan Murphy’s amazing Feud (2017) focuses on the author’s complicated relationship with a group of elite Manhattan socialites in Feud: Capote vs. The Swans (2024), and it’s due to drop on streaming service Hulu on January 31, 2024.
First of all, I would like to point out that FX has been pretty stingy with their promotional material in advance of the premier. Everywhere I looked, there were the same eigh photos of the principal actors in their roles, and the official trailer is very rapidly edited so seeing any more details about clothing was really difficult. Secondly, I take no responsibility for some of the atrocious photoshopping done to these women in the photos you will see below. Yeah, every single one of them is over the age of 50, but last I checked, they’re all holding up pretty well. Anyway, with that out of the way, here’s what we do know…
Truman Capote – Tom Hollander
Babe Paley – Naomi Watts
Slim Keith – Diane Lane
C.Z. Guest – Chloë Sevigny
Lee Radziwill – Calista Flockhart
Ann Woodward – Demi Moore
Joanne Carson – Molly Ringwald
I am greedily reading the source material for the series, Capote’s Women: A True Story of Love, Betrayal, and a Swan Song For an Era by Laurence Leamer, binging it all before the show drops on Wednesday.
