Oscar-nominated actor John Lithgow (The Crown) has been cast by Annapurna Pictures to take the lead role of Roger Ailes in the upcoming drama surrounding the sexual harassment scandal at Fox News that ended his career according to Variety.

Fair and Balanced is described mostly as an ensemble piece, with the majority of the focus being on Roger Ailes.

The film will focus primarily on the rise and fall of Ailes’ career at Fox News. His influence in Republican circles helped him assist in the election of a couple of presidents such as Richard Nixon and George Bush. Ailes’ public resignation in 2016 was as a result of numerous sexual misconduct allegations surfacing in the media.

Annapurna is financing and producing the feature. Director Jay Roach (Game Change) is set to direct the film and Charles Randolph has penned the script for the project. Theron will also be producing the feature along with Beth Kong and AJ Dix via Denver & Delilah. Roach, Randolph, and Margaret Riley are also producing.
