Billy Campbell takes on the role of Abraham Lincoln next

Billy Campbell has enjoyed a prolific career in the years since he played Luke Fuller as a young'un on "Dynasty." With roles on "The 4400," "The O.C.," "Law and Order: SVU" and a whole lot more, he's kept his star shining. Lately he's been playing Darren Richmond, troubled political candidate, on AMC's "The Killing."

His next role will keep him in both politics and killing, as Deadline TV is reporting: "Killing Lincoln" begins shooting in Virginia this month and will feature Campbell in the title role. It's based on a book by Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard and will air on the National Geographic Channel.
