Kerry Washington And Wendell Pierce Will Play In Confirmation, An Upcoming Film On HBO

Kerry Washington in Scandal

‘Scandal’ actress Kerry Washington and ‘The Wire’ actor Wendell Pierce will star in ‘Confirmation.’ It’s an upcoming American television drama film, directed by Rick Famuyiwa and written by Susannah Grant. The film will air on the cable network HBO in 2016.

The film is based on the life of Anita Hill, who became a national figure in 1991 because she accused U.S. Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas, her supervisor at the U.S. Department of Education and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, of sexual harassment.

Kerry Washington will play as Anita Hill, and Wendell Pierce as Clarence Thomas. The film also stars Zoe Lister-Jones as Harriet Grant, Erika Christensen as Shirley Weigand, Jennifer Hudson as Angela Wright, Greg Kinnear as Joe Biden, Jeffrey Wright as Charles Ogletree, Bill Irwin as John Danforth, and Eric Stonestreet as Kenneth Duberstein.

It seems that Kerry Washington was firstly in negotiations to play alongside Kate Hudson in Unforgettable (2016), but decided to use her hiatus from Scandal (2012) to make this film instead.

“Today there are people trying to take away rights that our mothers, grandmothers and great-grandmothers fought for: our right to vote, our right to choose, affordable quality education, equal pay, access to health care. We the people can’t let that happen.” Kerry Washington.

Rick Famuyiwa is a Nigerian-American Hollywood writer and director of films such as The Wood (1999), Talk to Me (2007), Brown Sugar (2002), and Dope (2015).

Remember that on May 7, 2015, ABC renewed Scandal for a fifth season. The writers began working on the fifth season on May 21, 2015 and it will premiere on September 24, 2015.
