What a time for Oscar-winners going fat and bald to play irredeemable right-wing assholes! Here’s the latest evidence with the teaser for The Loudest Voice, Showtime’s film about the late, still-not-disgraced-enough Roger Ailes. A puffier-than-usual Russell Crowe plays Ailes, the Fox News chairman and CEO who resigned from the network following sexual misconduct allegations; he then moved on to the Trump campaign, where sexual misconduct is their stock-in-trade. Naomi Watts, Sienna Miller, Seth MacFarlane, Josh Charles, Annabelle Wallis, and Simon McBurney co-star.
The seven-episode origin story of Dad’s political views hits Showtime Sunday, June 30.
