That settles it! Hollywood is fixed! The Oscars are fixed! First a non-TG get's to play a preop, HIV+, TS. When are we going to bring back having white actors play black actors by putting on Blackface and sing Mammy?
What's wrong with having a real TS play a TS, preop or not? Geez... It's not like they don't need the work. Mr Leto has demonstrated his very varied talents and will go on to do other roles. Especially now that he has this income enhancer called an Oscar in his pocket. He achieved the the coveted of being somebody's golden boy and all he needed was a role and an award, which were both arranged for him. I'll never believe a Hollywood press release again.
