Oscar winner Charlize Theron will reportedly star as Irish American TV personality Megyn Kelly in an upcoming film about big egos and allegations of sexual misconduct at Fox News.  At the center of the film are allegations against Fox CEO and chairman Roger Ailes, who as the Hollywood Reporter put it, “was forced to resign in 2016 when a host of accusations of sexual misconduct surfaced, with (Gretchen) Carlson and (Megyn) Kelly’s the most high-profile.”
