Hugh Grant (Paddington 2, Bridget Jones, Love Actually) has been cast to star opposite Nicole Kidman in HBO's upcoming 6-episode limited series, The Undoing per Deadline. Grant will star as Jonathan Sachs, Nicole Kidman's characters husband.
The Undoing is an adaptation of Jean Hanff Korelitz's novel, You Should Have Known. David E. Kelley (Big Little Lies) will pen the limited series with Susanne Bier (The Night Manager) directing.
The Undoing centers on Grace Sachs (Kidman), who is living the only life she ever wanted for herself. She's a successful therapist, has a devoted husband (Grant) and young son who attends an elite private school in New York City. Overnight a chasm opens in her life: a violent death, a missing husband, and, in the place of a man Grace thought she knew, only a chain of terrible revelations. Left behind in the wake of a spreading and very public disaster, and horrified by the ways in which she has failed to heed her own advice, Grace must dismantle one life and create another for her child and herself.
Jonathan Sachs is an acclaimed pediatric oncologist, devoted husband to Grace Sachs (Kidman) and doting father, whose past undergoes scrutiny when he suddenly disappears, leading to a chain of terrible revelations.
