EW has confirmed that Dennis Quaid has been cast in Truth, the drama pic that depicts Dan Rather’s fall from grace at CBS when he infamously reported a damaging report on George W. Bush that turned out to be false. Deadline first reported the news of Quaid’s casting.

Quaid will play Colonel Roger Charles and joins a cast that includes Robert Redford, who will be playing Dan Rather; Cate Blanchett, who will be playing 60 Minutes producer Mary Mapes; and Elisabeth Moss. James Vanderbilt will direct and write the project, which is currently in pre-production.
