A Roger Ailes miniseries is coming to a TV near you. But who should play the tarnished cable news executive and his key accuser?

That's the question on Hollywood's mind after a project about the 76-year-old former Fox News chairman — ousted amid claims of sexual harassment made by former anchor Gretchen Carlson, 50, among others — was announced on Wednesday.

No network has yet been attached to the title, which will be produced by Blumhouse Television, the studio behind two high-profile HBO projects, The Jinx and The Normal Heat.

The Hollywood Reporter put together a short list of 12 actors, six men and six women, suitable to play the two leads. Now it's time for you to weigh in.

Who should play...

... ROGER AILES?


... GRETCHEN CARLSON?
