George Westinghouse, THE CURRENT WAR tells the dramatic story of the late
19th century race to light up America and power the world. Rounding out the
cast are Nicholas Hoult as the eccentric inventor Nikola Tesla, Katherine
Waterston as Westinghouse’s outspoken wife Marguerite, Tom Holland as
Edison’s confident young secretary Samuel Insull, Matthew Macfadyen as the
famous financier and banker J.P. Morgan, and Tuppence Middleton as Edison’s
supportive wife Mary.
