This week, Hollywood was rocked by some rather unusual news: there's a new movie in the works, and it's about the late and former Mayor of Toronto, Rob Ford. Oh, and the controversial figure will be played by Damian Lewis, who's best known for his roles in Homeland and Billions. The film will be called Run This Town, and Lewis will be joined by Nina Dobrev, Ben Platt, Mena Massoud, Scott Speedman, and Jennifer Ehle. But if you're still trying to wrap your head around the idea of Lewis as Ford, you're most definitely not alone.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lewis is of course being outfitted with prosthetic pieces in order to play the mayor. Even so, the two individuals seem worlds away from each other, and that is exactly the sentiment in the far reaches of the internet. As you continue to chew on this one, please see the variety of reactions from people who are just as confused as you are.
