Teaser for The Loudest Voice Reveals Russell Crowe as Roger Ailes

Russell looks completely unrecognizable in the trailer.

Based on the book "The Loudest Voice in the Room" by Gabriel Sherman, the series follows Ailes' journey in creating the behemoth cable news network, along with the events that led to the election of Donald Trump. Sherman co-wrote the initial episode of the limited series with Oscar victor Tom McCarthy (Spotlight). First we had Christian Bale's turn as Dick Cheney in the Oscar-nominated Vice, and now we've got Our Rusty doing his bit as Roger Ailes the abrasive king of Fox News. "We're gonna give them a vision of the world the way they want it to be". As it was previously reported, Ailes had to resign as CEO and chairman of the company after he was accused of harassing women.

Carlson, 52, was the first - filing a lawsuit on July 6, 2016 claiming sexual harassment and accusing him of firing her after she rejected his advances. Roger said his former employee's statements were "false".

Child's Play Reboot Reveals First Look at Mark Hamill's Chucky!
The first trailer for Chucky's terrifying return dropped in March, with Aubrey Plaza getting the short end of the stick. Star Wars actor Mark Hamill revealed in a video that he will be voicing the murderous doll.

Several other women came forward at a later date, including on the 18th of May, 2017. Coincidentally, Ailes died at the age of 77-years-old. He apparently suffered from hemophilia.

Stars will include John Lithgow as Roger, Nicole Kidman as Gretchen Carlson, Charlize Theron as Megyn Kelly, Margot Robbie as Kayla Pospisil and Allison Janney as Susan Estrich.

While the book covers the rise of Ailes from his early childhood to the highest peak of success in the media, it would appear that this series will only focus on the rise and creation of Fox News, and seemingly his eventual downfall thanks to sexual harassment accusations and settlements that brought his part in the Fox News machine to an end. Banks and Crowe allegedly had an unpleasant interaction at a party one evening, however, due to witness testimony, he was cleared of wrongdoing.
