Per National Review, “What do you get when you take Dean Cain, an actor famous for playing Superman on TV, and Kristy Swanson, the actress who was the original Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and give them the chance to play a couple of adulterous, wildly partisan FBI agents working at the highest levels of the Mueller Russiagate probe? You get FBI Lovebirds, an outrageous play that had its conservative audience of 500 people howling at its premiere last Thursday at Washington’s Ronald Reagan Center.”

Per Deadline, “Dean Cain and Kristy Swanson are set to play real-life FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, whose amorous and revealing texts were made public. FBI Lovebirds: UnderCovers will get a staged reading in Washington, D.C., next month that will be filmed and put on YouTube.” The texts make it clear that the agents were determined to subvert the outcome of the election by any means necessary. Dean Cain has described himself as fiscally conservative and socially liberal (as has close friend Rob Lowe), though without using the L word…probably wise in the circumstance.
