Actor Matthew Broderick has been cast as hapless FEMA head Michael "Brownie" Brown in American Crime Story: Katrina
, according to reports
. Broderick joins the previously announced Annette Bening
, who will play then-Gov. Kathleen Blanco. The production, which will air in 2018 on FX, is set to begin filming in Louisiana later this year.
Brown now hosts a radio show
based in Denver. He wrote a book based on his experiences at FEMA, Deadly Indifference
, and had his ass handed to him on a plate

Heckuva job, Broderick!
