Roderick Laverne Cox

Laverne Cox continues to push the tranny and cross-dressing agenda in a new scripted television series, Deadline reports.

Cox, who was born Roderick Laverne Cox in Mobile, Alabama, will play a transvestite/cross-dresser in upcoming CBS legal drama Doubt, it was announced on Saturday.

The 31-year-old Orange Is the New Black star who has a fetish for stereotypical feminine attire, will be a regular character on the show, making him the first tranny to star as a regular cast member on a mainstream TV series.

Cox is the first tranny to be nominated for an Emmy Award.

Doubt features Katherine Heigl as a "smart, chic, successful defense lawyer at a boutique firm [who] starts to fall for her charismatic client, who may or may not be guilty of a brutal crime," according to Deadline.

Doubt is produced by Grey's Anatomy's Tony Phelan and Joan Rater, and also stars Steven Pasquale.

    Katherine alone will make this show flop I've heard some not so nice things about her and her mama and then she tried to bite the hand that fed her when she was on greys. Her career ain't really went anywhere major ever since .

  • Lisa daniels

    Katherine is Goop times a million and to think I loved her when she was a Disney kid.

  • Lisa daniels

    This why she doesn't get many roles. Sucks for her. She is a white blonde eye blonde, she could have been Kate Hudson or Sandra Bullock.dumb ase

  • Lisa daniels

    For hype, they will get paid even if it gets cancelled. They are setting her up.

  • Lisa daniels

    Katherine put an axe and hex on herself. No help needed.

  • RealDeal

    Laverne, do you bleed every month like me, or did you have a hysterectomy? Girl, those damn cramps are a pain but not in my ass. Call me chile!!

    I love you!!

  • ???

    You ever notice there's always some random maybe not so random in the background looking like that? Chit is suspect as hail.

  • ???

    Lmaooo???cute! Ditto too!

  • ???

    My first though was those stupid porch driving gloves that every nicca used to wear (and the hat) knowing damm well they wasn't pushing no porche.

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    Lol!

  • Li

    If Katherine Heigl is the star, it will fail. Betcha. As for Laverne/Roderick, I was just reading about another Transgendered male and I'm beginning to think that they're really gay men who want validation for having sex w/ men without saying they're gay. There's something about being a gay man that they probably don't like.
    I dunnooo....it's complicated.

    She should've worked with Lee Daniels with that attitude she reportedly has. She would've for sure been blacklisted like Monique was, F'N around with Lee. She just haven't met that right producer with the right amount of pull, because she keeps coming back from the dead.
