Damian to Play Rob Ford in the Movie ‘Run This Town’ – April 10, 2018

Damian Will Play a Flashy, Unpredictable Politician with No Filter

by Michael Oliveira | The Globe and Mail | April 10, 2018

As we initially reported back on March 26 and confirmed by both Deadline and The Hollywood Reporter, Damian will play controversial ex-Toronto Mayor Rob Ford in the drama, Run This Town. In an interview released today, Damian revealed he was fitted with a prosthetic in order to play the former mayor, who died in 2016 at the age of 46. Damian told Kit Magazine the process took an entire afternoon, which involved “getting his face and head completely covered in silicon strips, breathing through a small hole near the nose.”

However, writer-director Ricky Tollman clarified the film is not a biopic. Tollman says Ford is actually a fairly minor character in the story of a young wannabe journalist and other millennials who struggle to make a living in a post-recession economy. Ben Platt plays a bumbling newsroom intern who wants to break the story on the Ford scandal — but is several steps behind other reporters.

Tollman said he was thrilled to recruit Lewis to portray Ford, calling him “one of the most talented actors working today.”  “I thought that this is a guy that can play the moments of darkness and depth, but can also play the lighter moments. Rob was a guy that was elected because people wanted to grab a beer with the guy, you know?” said Tollman.

“He [Lewis] took to the idea that this wasn’t a one-dimensional version of this character.”
