Gretchen Carlson, Roger Ailes
A miniseries about the tarnished Fox News exec is coming — should John Goodman and Cameron Diaz star?
A Roger Ailes miniseries is coming to a TV near you. But who should play the tarnished cable news executive and his key accuser?
That’s the question on Hollywood’s mind after a project about the 76-year-old former Fox News chairman — ousted amid claims of sexual harassment made by former anchor Gretchen Carlson, 50, among others — was announced on Wednesday.
No network has yet been attached to the title, which will be produced by Blumhouse Television, the studio behind two high-profile HBO projects, The Jinx and The Normal Heat.
The Hollywood Reporter put together a short list of 12 actors, six men and six women, suitable to play the two leads. Now it’s time for you to weigh in.
Who should play…
… ROGER AILES?
… GRETCHEN CARLSON?
