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.

Television icon Charlie Rose has become the latest media star to be accused of sexual misconduct, with eight women telling the Washington Post that the longtime PBS newsman made unwanted sexual advances towards them while they were employees or sought work. “It is essential that these women know I hear them and that I deeply apologize for my inappropriate behavior,” Rose told the Post. “I am greatly embarrassed. I have behaved insensitively at times, and I accept responsibility for that,” he said, adding: “I have learned a great deal as a result of these events, and I hope others will too.

Kevin Feige Admits What Marvel “Stole” From Star Trek

Stole is such a harsh word but it can’t denied, especially by Kevin Feige, that Marvel took a little something from Star Trek. Thankfully it’s a tactic that doesn’t involve a lawsuit since no trademark exists when it comes to blowing up something vital in a movie to close out a trilogy or a single film. If you need a little more to go on than that, what they stole, or borrowed, or copied, was the idea of destroying something that was of great importance to the main characters and thus set them back a few paces in terms of

Charlie Rose’s ‘This Morning’ Co-Anchors Norah O’Donnell and Gayle King Address Allegations: ‘This Behavior Is Wrong, Period’

Charlie Rose’s ‘This Morning’ Co-Anchors Norah O’Donnell and Gayle King Address Allegations: ‘This Behavior Is Wrong, Period’
CBS This Morning” typically opens in splashy fashion, thanks to an early morning “eye opener,” which unspools a quickie montage of news that has broken overnight, a fine enough entry point for the long-running morning show. But on Tuesday morning, the show opened in atypical serious fashion, with co-anchors Gayle King and Norah McDonnell sitting next to each other for a frank discussion about their missing third anchor: Charlie Rose.

Rose was suspended on Monday night after a bombshell report in The Washington Post that chronicled allegations by eight women — many of them fellow journalists or aspiring journalists — who allege that Rose harassed them over a period of years. After the story dropped, Rose was swiftly suspended by both CBS and PBS, which distributes his “Charlie Rose” series.

Mark Hamill’s Tale of Returning to the Millennium Falcon

Mark Hamill’s touching tale of returning to the Millennium Falcon is something that pulls on the heartstrings when you realize just how epic it is to have the man back in the Star Wars franchise. It’s understandable why he would be so choked up with emotion when he walks into the Falcon. After all this is the ship where Ben Kenobi started teaching him how to use the Force, and where he eventually started to bond with Han and Chewbacca. It was the ship where he took a brief amount of solace after losing Kenobi and it was also the

Saturday Night Live's Female Staff Members Defend Al Franken in Letter
Though Saturday Night Live recently took Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) to task for a sexual harassment scandal, female staff members at the NBC sketch show are banding together to defend him.

Franken — who was an SNL writer and cast member in the 1970s, ’80s and ’90s — was accused earlier this month of forcibly kissing Leeann Tweeden during a Uso tour in 2006. She also released a photo that appeared to show Franken groping her while she was asleep.

Are We All Just Pretending “Look What You Made Me Do” Doesn’t Remind Us of the Sixth Sense?

You don’t ever forget your first time watching The Sixth Sense. Either you guessed from the very beginning that Bruce Willis was dead, or you were shell-shocked at the final unveiling and spent the night crammed into a twin bed with both of your siblings, bodies pressed together in shared, sheer terror. Just kidding on that last part. That definitely didn’t happen to us. Whether you were too-cool-for-ghoul or watching the cinematic treasure from behind a pillow fort, there were undoubtedly a few ghastly scenes that left you just a bit unnerved. Case in point?

Stranger Things 3 Will Probably Have More Kali, But How?

The rumor mill has already started grinding away with how Kali will most likely appear in Stranger Things season 3. But how this will happen is still anyone’s guess. A lot of folks are talking about how Kali’s arc is a serious distraction from the rest of the show and that it was kind of pointless to send Eleven off on a trip to find out about her past when she was so desperately needed back in Hawkins. The problem with that line of thinking is that if not for Kali, Eleven would have been seriously hindered by the fact
