Webster’s Danny McCarthy Has Role In Nov. 10 TV Movie “Killing Kennedy” McCarthy plays FBI agent James Hosty Nov. 22 marks 50 years since the assassination of President John F. Kennedy on a sunny afternoon in Dallas. The National Geographic Channel will present “Killing Kennedy,” based on the best-selling book by Bill O’Reilly, on Sunday, Nov. 10, at 7 p.m. Webster Groves native Danny McCarthy (of the TV drama “Prison Break”) appears in the film as FBI agent James Hosty. “It’s a small role, but I think it’s an important role,” said McCarthy, who strikes an image of the agent with his neatly cropped hair, stout build and blue eyes. “He was kind of a scapegoat after the assassination.” Hosty was the case officer for President Kennedy’s assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald (played by Will Rothhaar), prior to the indelible events in Dallas. “Hosty’s role has contemporary significance,” McCarthy said. “Like the Boston (marathon) bomber, Oswald was known to the authorities prior to his infamy.” McCarthy’s role in “Killing Kennedy” caps a nice year for the actor who now lives in New York City. McCarthy appeared as a guest star in “Chicago Fire,” starred on Broadway with veteran actor Ed Asner in “Grace,” and will soon be returning to the New York stage in a new play. McCarthy’s parents, Jack and Peg

Webster Groves’ Danny McCarthy as FBI agent James Hosty. “Killing Kennedy” airs at 7 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 10 on the National Geographic Channel. McCarthy of Webster Groves, and family often get together to watch his TV appearances. “I don’t think my parents will be having guests for ‘Killing Kennedy.’ The excitement over my being in the movie is pretty much lost in that they’ll be reliving a dark day in their lives,” McCarthy said. “My family is

Irish Catholic, and Kennedy was an icon. I think it still hurts, even after all these years.” McCarthy is a graduate of Christian Brothers College High School. He is a 1992 graduate of the Webster University Conservatory of Theater Arts.
