Doubt was the rare new show from CBS this year to not center around the lives of white men; it co-starred Laverne Cox, making her the first trans actress to play a recurring trans character on a broadcast series. But now it appears to have been cancelled.
The legal drama Doubt has been picked up as a CBS series, co-starring Orange Is the New Black’s Laverne Cox. And in a breakthrough for trans actors in Hollywood, it will be the first time a broadcast TV series will have a transgender person playing a recurring transgender character.
Somebody hit the siren, because her royal glamorousness Laverne Cox has just been cast as a star on Doubt, a new pilot being developed for CBS.
Viola Davis - up for an Oscar for Doubt - was on the Tonight Show last night. I haven't seen Doubt, nor heard Ms. Davis interviewed before, but she was all sorts of awesome.
How did critics treat Doubt, a film starring Meryl Streep and Philip Seymor Hoffman and based on the award-winning play by John Patrick Shanley, the film's director/writer? The answer, of course, after the jump.
