Watch Jeffrey Tambor tell Janet Mock, he’d rather a trans woman were cast as Maura

transparent 2

The golden globe nomination for yet another transgender role go’s to…..ah…ahem…..another cisgender actor…but the alternative isn’t better, Not by a long shot. When Jeffrey and Janet got done telling each other how “honored” they were to be seen together Jeffery got down to business. He told Janet on ET that he wished ‘a transgender’ had gotten the part because “they’ve been so maligned.”

I’m sorry but in my opinion, it’s transface. There have been so many transgender parts taken lately by cis people to such acclaim winning awards left and right, GOLDEN GLOBES, EMMY  NOMINATIONS! All of the major networks are falling over themselves trying to get one more trans centric show aired  They’ve even come to me seeking help in finding real life trans actors and families for the roles, that’s how desperate they are.

OK, now that I’ve bitten my nose off, I’m full. We are OITNB

It’s so cool to see transgender roles played with such passion sincerity and commitment. Maybe one of these days there might actually be trans people playing those parts. One day.
