Beanie Feldstein (“Booksmart,” “What We Do in the Shadows,” “Lady Bird”) is about to channel her inner child. She will voice the curious 11-year-old title character in “Harriet the Spy,” Apple TV+’s animated adaptation of Louise Fitzhugh’s beloved children’s novel of the same name. Jane Lynch will portray Ole Golly, Harriet’s nanny, and Lacey Chabert will play Marion, the leader of the popular girls at Harriet’s school. The series will be set in 1960s New York. 

As previously announced, Feldstein has also been cast in an equally famous but completely different character: She will play White House intern Monica Lewinsky in the FX limited series “Impeachment: American Crime Story,” about Bill Clinton’s presidency.

No airdate for either project has been announced.
