The Future of ‘Transparent’ is Trans: Why Recasting Jeffrey Tambor’s Role with a Trans Actress is the Best Option

The Future of ‘Transparent’ is Trans: Why Recasting Jeffrey Tambor’s Role with a Trans Actress is the Best Option
Jeffrey Tambor has quit “Transparent” in advance of Season 5, and it’s unclear what the show — which was renewed for a fifth season in August, before the fourth season even aired — might look like without its trans parent.

Jill Soloway’s Emmy-winning Amazon series was inspired by her own parent’s transition and has been largely constructed around Tambor’s Pfefferman family matriarch, Maura. The show needs Maura, even if it does not need Tambor, so the most obvious solution might also be the best one: Recast the role. More specifically, recast the role with a trans actress.

Though imagining a new figure stepping into the show’s close-knit family dynamic may sound jarring, there’s plenty of precedent: Just look to “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” “Roseanne,” “That ’70s Show” or even “Pretty Little Liars.

Here’s What The Justice League Cast Looked Like As Kids

If you were wondering what the Justice League looked like as kids you might want to tune in. To be quite honest they didn’t really look all that different, just younger, more vibrant in a way, and ready to take on the world. Their origins are a great deal different than their characters obviously and are fairly amusing in some ways since a couple of them very closely mirror their current roles in a few ways. The Justice League has just hit theaters and is already getting mixed reviews but the expectation that these heroes will continue to pursue their

Video Game Voice Actors Aren’t Always Told The Game They’re In

It might not seem possible but voice actors in video games don’t always know which game their voice is being featured in. That seems kind of amazing really since you would think that they’d know exactly what their effort is going to help. Unfortunately it seems as though a lot of actors have been given non-disclosure forms before ever speaking a word of dialogue so as to keep everything very hush-hush and insure themselves against any type of espionage. Basically if the voice actor decides to utter a word about what they’re working on and it gets out the company

The Top Uses of Journey Songs in Movies or TV
