Last Monday, Disney Branded Television and the online streaming platform Disney+ announced the cast of one of their original programmes. Yes. The streaming service has announced that Tony and Academy Award winner Catherine Zeta-Jones will play one of the key characters in the forthcoming Disney+ original programme National Treasure. This live-action programme is really a spin-off of the original film series of the same name. The real series has two films in its arsenal, both directed by Nicolas Cage, and according to current reports, a third sequel is in the works. The Disney show introduces a new character named Jess to the tale (acted by Lisette Alexis). Her personality is regarded as a bright and clever dreamer. Her heroine embarks on an adventure trip to solve her family’s riddles while simultaneously protecting a Pan-American treasure thought to be long-lost.
Billie is the name of the character for whom Zeta-Jones will pay. This character is now depicted as a tough billionaire, a specialist in black-market antiquities, and a treasure hunter who establishes her own rules and lives by them. She has progressed from a poor orphan to a millionaire. She always gets what she wants, and this time it’s the Pan-American treasure. But she isn’t motivated only by monetary considerations. She has a deeper connection to the prize.
When it comes to Zeta-Jones’ accomplishments, this well-known actress has earned a number of honours during her playing career. She won an Academy Award and was nominated for a Golden Globe for her role as Velma Kelly in the film Chicago. For the same role, she received a Screen Actors Guild Award, a Critics’ Choice Award, and a BAFTA Award. She won a Tony Award for her performance as the main actress in A Little Night Music.
Katherine Zeta-Jones, on the other hand, has appeared in Side Effects, Ocean’s 12, and Traffic (directed by Steven Soderbergh), and she was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for her role as a drug dealer’s wife. She also appeared in the film The Terminal (directed by Steven Spielberg). She played Tom Hanks’s opposite actress. She played the antagonist to George Clooney in Intolerable Cruelty (directed by the Coen Brothers). In recent news, she has appeared in the short film Cocaine Godmother, which is based on the life of iconic drug lord Griselda Blanco.
Zuri Reed will play Tasha, Jordan Rodrigues will play Ethan, Antonio Cipriano will play Antonio, and Jake Austin Walker will play Liam in the new Disney+ programme. These are Jess’ friends, and she appoints them to aid her as she investigates her family’s secret background and the link between her family and the riches. Lyndon Smith, who will portray FBI Agent Ross, will be another actor we will see. His role will be to accompany them on their travels.
