Kerry Washington, or K. Dub, as she sometimes refers to herself, posted a photo of herself as Anita Hill to Instagram. Washington’s new role will be featured in an upcoming biopic entitled, Confirmation.

Hill was an attorney who worked for then Supreme Court Justice nominee Clarence Thomas, back in the 90s, as his assistant. She alleged that he sexually harassed her. She took a lie detector test that confirmed that her allegations were truthful, but still ended up getting dragged through the mud. Meanwhile, Thomas is a SCOTUS judge, but I digress.

Washington’s co-stars in Confirmation include Jennifer Hudson, Jeffrey Wright, and more. Washington is also an executive producer on the project.
