Kate McKinnon To Take On Dramatic Role In Upcoming Roger Ailes Film

Description

The more that comes out about director Jay Roach’s drama about Fox News founder Roger Ailes, tentatively titled Fair and Balanced, the more intriguing it sounds. John Lithgow, who previously brought Winston Churchill to life in the first season of Netflix’s The Crown, will play the late television and political magnate. Other major cast members include Charlize Theron as Megyn Kelly, and Nicole Kidman and Margot Robbie as Gretchen Carlson and Kayla Pospisil, respectively. According to Deadline, SNL‘s own Kate McKinnon now counts herself among this already loaded cast.
