John Lithgow to portray Roger Ailes in Fox News film
John Lithgow has been cast as former chairman and CEO of Fox News Roger Ailes in an upcoming film about the cable network and Ailes being forced to resign following allegations of sexual misconduct.

The untitled film will center on the women who accused Ailes of sexual misconduct and helped take him down, including former Fox news anchor's Megyn Kelly who will be portrayed by Charlize Theron and Gretchen Carlson who will be portrayed by Nicole Kidman.

Lithgow, Theron and Kidman will also be joined by Margot Robbie as a fictional Fox News associate producer.

Ailes exited Fox News in July 2016 following allegations from Carlson and Kelly. He then died in May 2017 at the age of 77. Carlson won a sexual harassment lawsuit against Fox News and Ailes in September 2016 that resulted in a $20 million settlement from the network.

The project is set to be directed by Jay Roach, based on a script by Charles Randolph (The Big Short). Theron is producing along with Roach, Randolph, Margaret Riley, Beth Kono and AJ Dix. No release date has been announced.

Lithgow will next appear in comedy Late Night with Mindy Kaling and an adaptation of Stephen King novel Pet Sematary.

Which Oscar winner has been named Forbes' highest-paid actor for 2018?

George Clooney has been deemed the world's highest paid actor by Forbes for 2018, ahead of other Hollywood stars such as Dwayne Johnson and Robert Downey Jr.

Clooney earned $239 million in pretax earnings from June 2017 to June 2018 due to his lucrative business venture with tequila company Casamigos which was sold to British liquor conglomerate Diageo for $700 million last June. The deal also included the potential to earn an additional $300 million over the next decade.

Clooney walked away with an estimated $233 million from Casamigos with his remaining earnings coming from endorsement deals and older films.

In second place is Johnson with $124 million which the highest amount earned for front-of-camera roles in Forbes history the publication said. The action star earned the large amount from his upfront paychecks on films and from earning a cut of the profits made on projects such as Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.

Downey comes in third with $81 million earned from his role as Iron Man in Marvel's Spider-Man: Homecoming and Avengers: Infinity War.

Downey's Marvel co-star Chris Hemsworth follows behind in fourth place with $64.5 million for his turn as Thor in Thor: Ragnarok and in Avengers: Infinity War. In fifth place is Jackie Chan, earning $45.5 million as China's biggest movie star.

Rounding out the rest of the Top 10 is Will Smith ($42 million), Bollywood star Akshay Kumar ($40.5 million), Adam Sandler ($39.5 million), Bollywood star Salman Khan ($38.5 million) and Chris Evans ($34 million).

Together, the top ten highest-paid actors earned $748.5 million, compared to the $186 million earned by the top ten highest-paid actresses. Scarlett Johansson recently topped the list of highest-paid actresses with $40.5 million.

Mark Wahlberg was named the highest-paid actor in 2017 with $68 million.
