Elisabeth Rohm and Spencer Garrett will both play respective champions of Roger Ailes, Fox News hosts Martha MacCallum and Sean Hannity, in Jay Roach’s upcoming Bron Studios movie about the network boss and the females who crusaded against his toxic corporate culture.
MacCallum, like Jeanine Pirro (who is being played by Alanna Ubach in the movie as we broke yesterday), was one who was quick to defend Ailes after news broke about his alleged sexual harassment tendencies and expressed shock when former colleague anchor Gretchen Carlson (Nicole Kidman) made claims against him. At FNC, MacCallum co-anchored election coverage with Bret Baier. Rohm’s feature credits include David O. Russell’s American Hustle and Joy and the Netflix series Flaked. She is represented by Zero Gravity Management and APA.
Roach’s movie is currently shooting in Los Angeles. Lionsgate is selling overseas and finalizing a distribution deal to co-finance and distribute stateside.
