Nicole Kidman as Gretchen Carlson
The Big Little Lies star plays Gretchen Carlson, who was among the first to publicise Roger Ailes's sexual harassment. The former Fox News host sued the network's former chairman in 2016, but hasn't been able to speak out herself since because of her settlement with Ailes. "It's a strange and frustrating reality that I can't partake in any of these projects based on my settlement, which is why I'm working so hard on Capitol Hill so that nobody else has to be handcuffed anymore," she told Entertainment Weekly. Nevertheless, her story is out there thanks to Naomi Watts's portrayal of her in the Showtime series The Loudest Voice, and now with Kidman's role in Bombshell.
