Every single thing in our lives has turned upside down in the past few years, and 2019 isn’t promising to be any different. Hell has frozen over and we are going to be tuning into Fox News. No, not to hate watch, but to actually learn something. The movie centering around the Roger Ailes scandal is in production and I never thought I’d say this but it’s making Fox News look glamorous.
Basically it covers the 20 year reign of Ailes as the head of the network and all the shady sh*t he did. What sort of shady sh*t? Oh you know just the sort of shady sh*t men in power seem to always end up doing: sexual harassment. But a movie simply about Ailes isn’t what is worth getting excited about. No. What is bringing my butt to the box office is yet another incredible wig donned by Nicole Kidman who plays Gretchen Carlson. (The other wig I am referring to is, of course, Kidman’s Big Little Lies hairpiece.)

Kidman is joined by Charlize Theron who will play Megyn Kelly and Margot Robbie as an associate producer at Fox. This is what I’ve always dreamed of- an ensemble film filled with ice queens and terrible politics. Russell Crowe is apparently on board to play Ailes, which feels a little to gracious considering Russell Crowe is like, an attractive older man, and Roger Ailes famously looked like hamburger meat that had been left in the Sun. We will have to wait to see who will play Bill O’Reilly and Rupert Murdoch, but maybe Satan himself is free and looking for screen time?
