He'll play the star in a new TV series

Rusty's landed a new role!

Our very own Russell Crowe can add another role to his long list, after he nabbed the part of Fox News boss Roger Ailes in a new television series. 

The series, based on Gabriel Sherman's book The Loudest Voice in the Room, follows the life of Ailes and his fall from grace amid sexual harassment allegations.

Sherman's 2014 book brought to light allegations that Ailes had pressured a producer to sleep with him for a pay rise. 

He passed away from subdural hematoma last year.

 

It will be Crowe's first ever major US Television series role, and will premiere on US cable channel Showtime
