Nicole Kidman Is Reportedly in Talks to Portray Gretchen Carlson in Upcoming Ailes Biopic

By A.J. Katz Comment

The cast for the forthcoming Roger Ailes biopic is starting to round into form, slowly but surely.

According to Variety, Nicole Kidman is in talks to portray former Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson in Annapurna Pictures’ upcoming drama about the final months of Ailes 20-year run as CEO of Fox News Channel.

Kidman will join Charlize Theron, who will portray Megyn Kelly and is a producer on the film. Jay Roach is slated to direct, with The Big Short writer Charles Randolph concocting the script.

THR reported back in May other personalities likely to be portrayed include Greta Van Susteren, Rupert Murdoch and Bill O’Reilly.

The project has apparently gotten the attention of several A-Listers including Margot Robbie, who’s also looking at a role in the film, though sources told Variety that her schedule still needs to be sorted out.

Who do you think should portray other Fox Newsers in the film? Leave your thoughts in the comment section…
