Russell Crowe Is Livin’ Large as Late Fox News Honcho Roger Ailes

Russell Crowe is not quite looking like himself these days as he started production for Showtime’s series chronicling the rise and eventual downfall of Roger Ailes.

The “Gladiator” star was seen in NYC as filming for “The Loudest Voice in the Room” began. He was barely recognizable in costume in costume as the disgraced news executive and was seen walking with the aid of a cane.

The Showtime limited series will tell the story of the late Ailes exiting his post as the Fox News chief after multiple allegations of sexual harassment were made against him. Shortly after his exit, he died at the age of 77 after hitting his head during a fall at home.

Naomi Watts, Sienna Miller, Seth MacFarlane and Simon McBurney will also star in the show.
