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.

What Exactly Went Wrong with ‘Justice League?’

Justice League has finally hit theaters and, by every possible measure, it is a monumental failure for Warner Bros. Although modestly better-reviewed than “certified rotten” films like Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad, it is by no means beloved by critics. Barely more than one third of those who have seen it have liked it. What’s the defense that so often is used to defend Dceu movies, though? “It’s made for the fans, not the critics?” Glossing over the implication that movies don’t want or need a positive reception to draw audiences beyond its core fanbase (and justify their multi-hundred

NCIS: Los Angeles 200th Episode Review

The 200th episode of NCIS: Los Angeles was a family affair from start to finish. Without being overly nostalgic or focusing too much on the future, the well-written hour focused on how each member of NCIS moves forward in the immediate present. For some, that means coming to terms with painful events they cannot change. For others, it means stepping into the roles they were meant to fill. It was a powerful tribute to the show, one that finally felt like Season 9 is coming together. Everyone is in pretty different places personally. Everyone’s lives outside of NCIS were given

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Terminator Fights Machete, Wolverine, and Others in Short Stop Motion Film

In fight between Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Terminator, Machete, Wolverine, and others I think, as a fan, that I’d have to set things straight just a bit. The Terminator is awesome, despite what’s happened since T2, and the unstoppable machine that created a franchise is one of the greatest movie creations ever. But it does have limits as we’ve seen and massive damage, on the critical level, is among them. It’s amusing that whoever did this wouldn’t pit him against the Hulk, Vision, Iron Man, or any seriously heavy hitters, even Cyborg, that could really mess him up on an epic scale.

Lucifer: Chloe Does Lucifer. Dr. Martin Gains Perspective.

People sometimes try too hard to be someone that they’re not. All in the name of attempting to be attractive to others. In tonight’s episode of Lucifer, the facades and masks disappear, letting the real selves shine through. The opening scene almost had my Deckerstar heart going. I thought that the hug they shared during the last episode led to something more steamy. Imagine my shock when it turned out to be a cozy night in playing Monopoly with Trixie. Although it’s still a tender Deckerstar moment nevertheless so I’ll let this one go for now. Our favorite crime-solving duo
