Charlize Theron was photographed on the set of an upcoming Roger Ailes movie bearing an uncanny resemblance to former TV host, Megyn Kelly.

Theron will play Kelly in the movie, titled Fair and Balanced, which will focus on the women at Fox News who accused the disgraced chief of sexual harassment. Nicole Kidman is set to play Fox Newser Gretchen Carlson and John Lithgow is rumored to play Ailes, according to the Daily Mail.

The pictures surfaced on the same day Kelly reportedly lost her on-air gig at NBC over her controversial comments defending blackface.

The former Megyn Kelly Today face may begin negotiating her exit deal with the network as early as Friday and is said to be seeking the remainder of her contract — $23 million a year for three years, according to reports. Kelly is also allegedly enlisting journalist Ronan Farrow to join her in the meeting.
