Actor, singer and songwriter Kris Kristofferson has joined the cast of History’s miniseries Texas Rising (working title) from A+E Studios and ThinkFactory Media. Leslie Greif (Hatfields & McCoys) is exec producing the project, which will detail the Texas Revolution against Mexico and the rise of the legendary Texas Rangers. Kristofferson will play President Andrew Jackson, who avoided direct U.S. involvement during the Texas Revolution, but he was a mentor to and admirer of General Sam Houston and realized the fate of Texas would profoundly influence the future of the United States.
