Based on the #1 NY Times Bestseller “Killing Lincoln” written by Fox’s Bill O’Reilly, National Geographic rolls out it’s epic retelling with the help of Tom Hanks’ narration of the final days of Lincoln’s life and the pursuit of those behind the assassination.  Executive produced by Ridley and the late Tony Scott, Lincoln is played by Billy Campbell and break out star Jesse Johnson (son of Don Johnson) brilliantly plays his assassin John Wilkes Booth.  “Killing Lincoln” mixes narration with re-enactments to tell a ticktock version of John Wilkes Booth’s plot to kill the president.

Here “The King of Kamelot” sits down with break out star Jesse Johnson to talk about playing perhaps the most famous assassin in American history, how he prepared for the character, his upcoming projects, and soo much more!
