Actor Emile Hirsch is set to tackle the role made famous by Warren Beatty in a new TV mini-series about notorious bankrobbing couple Bonnie And Clyde. The Into the Wild star will play charismatic Clyde Barrow opposite The Borgias actress Holliday Grainger, who has replaced Miley Cyrus as Bonnie Parker in the project. William Hurt will portray a Texas Ranger on the hunt for the pair, while his old Broadcast News co-star Holly Hunter has been cast as Parker's mother Emma. Oscars producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron are the brains behind the four-part show, which will air on America's Lifetime and History networks. Faye Dunaway played Beatty's leading lady in the Oscar-nominated Bonnie and Clyde film in 1967.
