Connie Britton (“9-1-1”), Elisabeth Rohm (“American Hustle”), Alanna Ubach (“Coco”) and Spencer Garrett (“The Front Runner”) have signed on to join Jay Roach’s upcoming Roger Ailes biopic which is now going by the title “Fair and Balanced” at Annapurna.
Rohm and Garrett have been cast as Fox News hosts Martha MacCallum and Sean Hannity, Ubach is Jeanine Pirro and Britton will play the wife of Ailes.
The ensemble piece puts the majority of its focus on former Fox News chief Roger Ailes (John Lithgow) and his ultimate downfall that came about after a number of women, including Gretchen Carlson (Nicole Kidman) and Megyn Kelly (Charlize Theron), sued him for harassment.
Malcolm McDowell, Margot Robbie, Allison Janney, Kate McKinnon, Alice Eve and Mark Duplass co-star. Charles Randolph penned the script and filming is now underway in Los Angeles.
