    First trailer

    From The Hollywood Reporter:
    Jeff Daniels is returning to TV, and Hulu has dropped a first look at his next character: the chief of New York’s FBI counterterrorism unit at the center of its highly anticipated 9/11 drama, The Looming Tower.

    The powerful trailer opens with a shot of the Twin Towers, followed by John O’Neill (Daniels) staring at a picture of the most wanted man in the world, Osama bin Laden. “What I need you for is to figure out what happens next, so we can stop it,” O’Neill tells a young FBI agent, played by Tahar Rahim.

    Based on Lawrence Wright’s Pulitzer Prize-winning nonfiction book of the same name, The Looming Tower traces the rising threat of Osama bin Laden and Al-Qaeda in the late 1990s, exploring how the rivalry between the FBI and CIA may have inadvertently set the path for the tragedy of 9/11.

    The series follows members of the I-49 squad in New York and the Alec Station in Washington, D.C. — the counterterrorism divisions of the FBI and CIA, respectively — as they travel the world fighting for ownership of information while seemingly working toward the same goal of trying to prevent an imminent attack on U.S. soil.

    The 10-episode drama follows O’Neill, the determined, bullheaded chief who is rightly convinced that the U.S. has been targeted for attack by Al-Qaeda and who faces deliberately insufficient cooperation from other facets of the federal government, particularly from his counterpart at the CIA. The stellar cast also includes Alec Baldwin, Wrenn Schmidt, Bill Camp, Louis Cancelmi, Virginia Kull, Ella Rae Peck, Sullivan Jones, Michael Stuhlbarg and Peter Sarsgaard.

    Give Paul Thomas Anderson an Oscar.

    Michael Stuhlbarg is in literally everything. Not complaining, but still.

    I won’t be surprised if there will be an announcement that he will guest star on Will and Grace.
