A Lot of Movie Magic Went Into Making the 'Bombshell' Cast Resemble Their Real-Life Counterparts

By

On their face (no pun intended), the cast of Bombshell doesn't have a ton in common with the real-life figures they're portraying. Most of the Hollywood actors playing the Fox News Channel figures involved in the network's Roger Ailes-era scandal have very different political beliefs, and you wouldn't necessarily confuse Charlize Theron for Megyn Kelly on a red carpet. However, through great acting and even better makeup and hair magic, the transformations are pretty impressive. 

Have a look at the Bombshell movie cast vs. the real-life news personalities they portray in the upcoming biopic. (Conspicuously absent from this list is Margot Robbie, whose character, Kayla Pospisil, is a composite and not based on any one person.)

Check out the Bombshell movie cast and their real-life counterparts below:

Charlize is no stranger to mega transformations. Turning herself into Megyn Kelly was probably a cake walk compared to becoming serial killer Aileen Wuornos, but it does appear some tricks with prosthetics and makeup were employed to make her more closely resemble the former host of The Kelly File.
