Damian Lewis to play Rob Ford in movie ‘Run This Town,’ reports say

“Billions” and “Homeland” star Damian Lewis is set to portray the late Toronto mayor Rob Ford in a film called “Run This Town,” according to media reports.

In an interview with Kit magazine, Lewis described being fit with a face prosthetic to better resemble Ford, who died in 2016 after a tumultuous run as mayor that included an infamous crack-smoking scandal.

The film, written and being directed by Ricky Tollman, will be shot in Toronto with co-stars including Canadian actors Nina Dobrev, Mena Massoud and Scott Speedman.

 A synopsis of the film revealed by industry website Deadline Hollywood describes it as the story of “a young journalist, desperate to prove himself, who catches wind of a scandal involving a flashy, unpredictable politician with no filter. Political aides attempt to keep their boss in check — and the story under wraps — in order to save their jobs.”
