So you thought it was an odd bit of casting that Russell Crowe will play Roger Ailes in an upcoming Showtime mini-series based on the unauthorized biography of the late and disgraced Fox News founder?

How about Naomi Watts as Gretchen Carlson, former Fox News anchor turned #MeToo activist and Miss America honcho?

It’s interesting that a mini-series based on, arguably, the progenitor of the whole “America First” thing is being fronted by an Australian (Crowe, who is also ep) and Watts (British-born with a Welsh pedigree we are happy to note).

Just sayin’.
