ConfirmationLooks like Kerry Washington's Anita Hill could use a little help from Kerry Washington's Olivia Pope.

On "Scandal," Washington plays a master fixer who can elect senators, clear innocent prisoners' names, and bring a president to his knees (literally). If only Anita Hill could call on her in the upcoming HBO movie "Confirmation."

HBO released the first image of Washington as the lawyer who testified in 1991 that she had been sexually harassed by then-Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas. The movie follows the confirmation hearings that took place before Thomas ascended to his seat on the highest court in the land.

Wendell Pierce ("The Wire") plays Thomas, and he and Washington are joined by a star-studded cast including Greg Kinnear as Joe Biden, Jennifer Hudson as witness Angela Wright, and Jeffrey Wright as Harvard Law professor Charles Ogletree. HBO has yet to set an airdate for "Confirmation."
