Grammer, Quinn to Star in A&E Biopic


Actors Aidan Quinn and Kelsey Grammer will star in a new A&E Network
original movie, Traitor: Benedict Arnold, set to start production later
this year.

Quinn (Legends of the Fall, Benny
& Joon)
will portray legendary turncoat Major Benedict Arnold, while the
Emmy Award-winning Grammer (Frasier) will portray Gen. George Washington
in the A&E Studios Original Movie, network senior vice president of
programming Allen Sabinson said.

'Most people know Benedict as America's most infamous traitor, but what they
don't know was that Arnold was the continental army's most courageous and
successful military commander,' Sabinson said.

'The combination of a great historical story, a masterful script and the star
power and acting talents of Aidan Quinn and Kelsey Grammer make Traitor:
Benedict Arnold
a fantastic project for A&E,' he
