Previously announced cast members include Julia Roberts, who will star as Martha Mitchell, and Sean Penn, who will take on the role of her husband Attorney General John Mitchell. Stevens, meanwhile, will portray the young White House Counsel John Dean, replacing the previously announced Armie Hammer.
