According to Variety, the cast of “National Treasure” will be joined by legendary actor Catherine Zeta-Jones for the show’s debut season on Disney+. She’ll be portraying a billionaire treasure hunter and “black-market antiquities expert” named Billie who “lives by her own code” after managing to turn her entire life around.
“She transformed herself from a penniless orphan to a shrewd, stylish businesswoman and adventurer,” Variety reports. “Billie’s used to getting what she wants — and she wants the Pan-American treasure,” the outlet adds. “But not just for the money. This treasure has deeper stakes for her.”
While most people know Zeta-Jones for movie career, the Oscar-nominated “Chicago” star has also dipped her feet into the world of television a few times in recent years. Her credits include appearances on Fox’s “Prodigal Son,” the beauty pageant web series “Queen America,” and the upcoming 2022 Addams Family spinoff “Wednesday” for Netflix, in which she’ll be playing Morticia Addams. It appears now with her recent “National Treasure” casting that Zeta-Jones’ year just got a whole lot busier.
