Former Olympian athlete and member of the Kar Krash Klub (not to be confused with the KKK) is going to appear on Transparent. Kaitlyn Jenner, the one member of Trans People for Republicans, has been confirmed to have an as yet undisclosed part in the Amazon show. Thank god she got another show now that I Am Kancelled is done. Like all her relatives, if she isn’t in front of a kamera, she withers away and dies. Phew! Very generous of show creator, Jill Soloway, to come in and be a good samaritan.
ABC News reported that Jill confirmed the casting choice at the GLAAD Awards on Saturday. Jill described the partnership as “a dream come true” and said it was easy to get Kaitlyn because they “are all part of the same community. A lot of the transwomen who work on our show are also in her show, ‘I am Cait,’ Lots of crossover. Lots of friends.” I give her props for being kind and koncerned enough to be like “that snoozy mess is gone and those transwomen need jobs, let me sort this out.”
I’m hoping her character is more based on life than a totally made up character. Maybe she’ll play an out of control reality TV personality with a makeup addiction who, literally, crashes into the show when she rear ends Jeffrey Tambor’s character, Maura Pfefferman, while on her way to take a stunning and brave selfie. Regardless, this is clearly some good PR. Between her show getting the axe and all the nonsense, NONSENSE, that’s been dribbling out of her plumped, plucked and tucked lips, Kaitlyn needs some good image adjustment. Buckle up, buckaroos, for Kaitlyn rides again!
And here’s Jill, Alexandra Billings and Amy Landecker of Transparent at last night’s GLAAD Awards:
