Bill Murray is slated to play the 32nd president of the United States, Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

Vulture repots that the actor of “Groundhog Day” fame will star in an adaptation from a British radio play, “Hyde Park On the Hudson.”

It will tell the story of the liaison the president had with his distant cousin Margaret Stuckley, and one weekend in June 1939 when the King and Queen of England paid Roosevelt a visit at his New York cottage.
