Boyle was most recently tapped to star as John Wilkes Booth alongside Tobia Menzies in the Apple limited series Manhunt. The series, which is currently filming, is based on James Swanson’s book Manhunt: The 12-Day Chase for Lincoln’s Killer. Described as part historical fiction and part conspiracy thriller, Manhunt will center on the aftermath of the first American presidential assassination and the fight to preserve and protect the ideals that were the foundation of Lincoln’s Reconstruction plans.
Boyle also stars in Apple’s upcoming Band of Brothers sequel Masters of the Air, opposite Callum Turner, Austin Butler and Barry Keoghan. Based on the book by Donald L. Miller, Masters of the Air follows the true, deeply personal story of the American bomber boys in World War II who brought the war to Hitler’s doorstep. Directed by Cary Fukanaga, the series is executive produced by Steven Spielberg alongside Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman.
