Exclusive poster promises: 'When you fight the past, the past fights back'

In an exclusive clip from the show, Al (Cooper) speaks to a bewildered Jake (Franco) about his research into the truth of the murder, including what Lee Harvey Oswald had to do with it.
“Guy didn’t make sense,” Al says ominously. “U.S. Marine, defected to Russia, came back. But everyone who wrote about Oswald studied him after the assassination. I saw him before.”
