"I'm very interested and have talked to my good bartender friend Sarah Paulson about playing Linda Tripp," Murphy told Andy Cohen on "Watch What Happens Live". "So, we'll see if she would agree to do that, because I always think of Sarah for everything," added Murphy.
Intriguingly enough, Murphy revealed that he wanted to cast a newcomer to portray Lewinsky. He also said that the former president and Hillary Clinton wouldn't be a huge part of the story because he wanted the series to be more "about the birth of a specific movement in our country."
The second and third season of "American Crime Story" will debut in 2018.

Meanwhile, the third season will chronicle the 1997 murder of Gianni Versace in Miami. Edgar Ramirez and Darren Criss will portray the legendary designer and his killer Andrew Cunanan respectively in the third installment.
