Russell Crowe in Sky Atlantic's The Loudest Voice

The first thing you notice about The Loudest Voice, the seven-part miniseries about disgraced, deceased former Fox News head and sexual predator Roger Ailes, is the top of Russell Crowe’s head.

Or rather the bald cap on the top of Russell Crowe’s head. You keep on noticing it, too. The line separating actor from prosthetic is more visible from some angles than others, but you’re always aware it’s there.

You might not be able to take your eyes off the bald cap at all, in fact, were it not for the other great distraction constantly catching the eye: the blubbery, rubbery fat-suit in which Crowe waddles around like an evil Oliver Hardy, banging his fists on desks, slamming down phones and roaring, spittle flying, at underlings and anyone who doesn’t agree with his way of doing things.
