Russell was in full costume to play the disgraced late Fox News CEO; he wore a complete set with a pattern tie before turning into a classic tuxedo.

The winner of the Academy Award wore dark-skinned trousers with a matching jacket and added top and wire frame glasses.

It also contains flashbacks for defining events in Ailes & # 39; life and is told through multiple viewpoints.

"In many ways, the clash between media and politics has come to define the world we live in today," said President and CEO David Nevins of Showtime Networks to Variety.
