Charlize Theron Will Play Megyn Kelly In Movie About Fox News And Roger Ailes
Um… if this doesn’t scream Oscar worthy we don’t know what does.
Apparently, Charlize Theron will be playing Megyn Kelly in a new movie about her experience working at Fox News under its disgraced former chairman Roger Miles, who was nixed after multiple sexual assault violations against him.
The project is currently untitled, but it will be written by The Big Short screenwriter Charles Rudolph. Charlize is reportedly playing Megyn, a former lawyer who worked at Fox News for 10 years and became a superstar at the network hosting the hit series The Kelly Files.
Megyn claims in her book, Settle For More, that after months of harassment, Roger “crossed a new line” in January 2006 when he grabbed her and repeatedly tried to kiss her. Upon shoving him away, she alleged he asked her the “ominous question” of “When is your contract up?” before trying to kiss her for a third time. She never succumbed to his advances.
