Who is in the cast of Trust?

The characters of Trust are played by an all-star cast. Leading the series as the former richest man in the world John Paul Getty is Donald Sutherland.

After his grandson John Paul Getty III gets kidnapped, Getty, Sr. hires James Fletcher Chase (Brendan Fraser) to track him down.

The series also focuses on Getty, Jr.’s mother Gail (Hilary Swank), who finds herself often pleading with her son’s grandfather to pay the ransom.

Also playing major roles are Four Weddings and a Funeral’s Anna Chancellor, Peep Show’s Sophie Winkleman and Luca Marinelli, Silas Carson and Michael Esper.

What is the plot of Trust?

According to executive producer Simon Beaufoy: “It [revolves] around the kidnapping of John Paul Getty III, which is the big one that everyone knows about.

“What they don’t know is that there were three generations of Gettys involved in this saga; the kidnapping is a way into the story of the richest people in the world.

“John Paul Getty was the world’s first billionaire and it’s a story about the lack of love that he had cascading down the generations from one generation of Gettys to the next, and how it all culminated in this terrible event when his grandson was kidnapped.”

This story was also told earlier in the year in Ridley Scott’s All the Money in the World, which starred Christopher Plummer as John Paul Getty, Michelle Williams as Gail and Mark Wahlberg as Fletcher Chase.
