Laverne Cox Cast in CBS Legal Drama

EW Snippet

Entertainment Weekly reported last month that Laverne Cox, who portrays the transsexual woman, Sophia Burset on Orange Is the New Black, is cast in CBS’ new pilot drama, Doubt.

Staff writer James Hibberd states:

The Orange is the New Black actress will play a transgender Ivy League-educated attorney, described as “competitive as she is compassionate. She’s fierce, funny and the fact that she’s experienced injustice first hand makes her fight all the harder for her clients.”

Whatever you do, don’t look at the comments, unless you’re up for combatting ignorance.
