SWANK PLAYS MRS. GETTY
Two-time Academy Award winner
makes a rare television appearance in the new FX series Trust (March 25). She plays the mother of John Paul Getty III in the drama about the headline-making kidnapping of the young grandson of the richest man in the world (Donald Sutherland)—who’s reluctant to part with the ransom money to set him free. “What you take away from all this,” says Swank, 43, whose films include Boys Don’t Cry and Million Dollar Baby, “is that money can’t solve all your problems.” The Outlander star, 44, segues from his dual fictional parts as “Black Jack” and Frank Randall on the hit Starz series to the role of real-life British naval officer James Fitzjames in The Terror (March 26 on AMC). The new 10-episode series is about a mid-1800s expedition that sailed into uncharted waters in search of the treacherous Northwest Passage to the Pacific Ocean, as ships become frozen in the ice and the crew is menaced by a monstrous predator.
