Everything We Know About Broken Diamonds
The movie will be directed by Peter Sattler, and the screenwriter is Steve Waverly. The cast of the movie includes The Politician’s star Ben Platt, Lynda Boyd, and Lola Kirke. No other details about as to when it will release have been given yet.
Ben Platt rose to prominence in ‘The Politician’
Platt’s amazing performance in the Netflix show ‘The Politician’ gave him a lot of popularity. As fans wait for his other movie projects such as ‘Broken Diamonds’ and ‘Run This Town’, they are also waiting for the show’s second season.
As yet, we don’t know about the Politician season 2, but it’s definitely coming. Netflix ordered two seasons of the teen drama right off the bat which is almost unheard of for the streaming giant. Obviously, when you’ve got the pedigree Ryan Murphy has, you can get pretty much whatever you want.
In the finale’s curveball time-hop, we saw Ben Platt’s character (Payton) as an alcoholic – studying at NYU by day, singing sad songs in dive bars by night. He looked in bad shape. But luckily, the gang convinced him to chuck in the booze and run for state senate instead! His opponent? The wily Dede Standish (Judith Light) and her bulldog campaign advisor Hadassah Gold (Bette Midler). Dede’s run unopposed at the last few elections, but she’s hiding a secret Payton hopes to exploit. Presumably, the second season will follow our fledgling statesman on the campaign trail.
