AceShowbiz - Dennis Quaid is getting presidential again for the audiobook of former U.S. leader Bill Clinton's debut novel. Quaid, who played Clinton in 2010 TV movie "The Special Relationship", will narrate the audiobook edition of the politician's upcoming collaboration with thriller writer James Patterson, titled "The President Is Missing".
Clinton's new book will hit shelves on June 4, and the audiobook will be available shortly afterwards.
Quaid insists the former leader's first novel is a riveting read, and he's sure it will be another bestseller for Patterson. "As I read each day I felt like I was right along with the characters for all the shocking twists and turns you'll never guess are coming," the actor says in a statement. "Patterson and Clinton have created a truly unique character in their 'missing' President, and I was honored to be a part of this thrilling production."
" 'The President Is Missing' puts the listener inside the White House and inside the mind of a President grappling with extraordinary circumstances."
The audiobook will also feature an original score from Kevin Bacon's Emmy Award-winning composer brother Michael.
Showtime bosses have already picked up the rights to the book and plan to adapt it as a TV series.
This will be Quaid's second audiobook narration project this year. He read "The Right Stuff" when the audio version of Tom Wolfe's novel was picked up by bosses at Audible Studios.
Quaid, who portrayed Gordon Cooper in director Philip Kaufman's 1983 movie adaptation of the book, narrated "The Right Stuff" for Audible.com's digital release.
