They both walked the red carpet in the 1990s, so maybe Dennis Quaid and Julianne Moore will have an easier time acting as if they’re at the Clinton White House.

The actors will portray Bill and Hillary Clinton in an HBO movie titled Special Relationship, Variety reports. The film, featuring Michael Sheen in yet another turn as former British prime minister Tony Blair – as he did in the 2006 movie The Queen – will focus on the political relationship between president and prime minister.

The film is to be directed by Peter Morgan, who also wrote The Queen. No start to filming or proposed airdate has been determined as yet.
