Laverne Cox pulls out of Sell/Buy/Date
January 7th, 2021 under Laverne Cox. [ Comments: none ]

Laverne Cox signed on to produce Tony-winner Sarah Jones’ play Sell/Buy/Date as a documentary. However, after several people confronted her about the project, she opted to walk away from it.

“When I agreed to come on as an executive producer of ‘Sell, Buy Date,’ I did so because I was so deeply moved by Sarah Jones’ brilliant play and her unbelievable, undeniable talent as an artist, as an actor. I signed on to support her incredible talent. I have so much love for her as a human being,” Cox wrote. “But I am not in an emotional place to deal with the outrage by some around my participation in this project. So I have decided to pull out. To be clear I am no longer involved in any capacity in “Sell. Buy, Date.” I have to take care of my mental, physical and emotional health. This is all I have to say on the matter. Stay in the love, Laverne Cox.”

Cox did not elaborate on what the outrage is over her doing the project. Sell/Buy/Date tells the story of real-life experiences of people affected by the commercial sex industry through interviews with current and former sex workers, experts, and celebrities.


An inconvenient question could have led to an inconvenient joke on Match Game!
July 6th, 2018 under Alec Baldwin, Joel McHale, Laverne Cox. [ Comments: none ]

Match Game is back on ABC and the show had some new first-time celebrity panelists like David Arquette, Michael Ealy and Laverne Cox on the game show yesterday. Even though they are newbies, they showed us humor never gets old when it is unintended!

Alec Baldwin asked the question, “When Al Gore was younger, he made a movie called Inconvenient Truth. Now that he is getting older, he is seeing his doctor about an inconvenient blank.”

Alex was hoping that the celebs would say ache, and he was so wrong. So wrong, the audience rightfully booed him. Joel McHale went with, “constant pee.” Constance Zimmer thought it should be “hernia”. Arquette went with the opposite of McHale because he said, “poop.” Caroline Rhea’s response rhymed with Arquette’s because she thought it should be “tooth”.

Believe it or not, it was tame until then. When Alec got to Ealy, he wrote down “penis.” I guess he forgot who was sitting to his left. Before Baldwin even had a chance to say anything, Cox warned him, “Don’t go there Alec!” She then added, “No comment on that!” In case you have been living under a rock and a hard place, she previously went to her doctors for an inconvenient penis. Oh the jokes they could have made, but ABC’s censors would have Arquette’s answer if they did.

In case you were wondering, Cox went little higher with her answer. She thought of what most older men complain about and that is prostate.

When it comes to the newbies, I think all of them would make great repeat panelists. In fact, Cox was so funny, she deserves her own game show.


Doubt proves its case!
February 15th, 2017 under CBS, Katherine Heigl, Laverne Cox. [ Comments: none ]

The case begins for Doubt tonight at 10p on CBS and it’s the best legal drama since Boston Legal.

Isaiah Roth (Elliott Gould) is the owner of a boutique law firm and has been fighting to right the wrongs since the Black Panthers. He is highly respected even though it gets him in trouble all the time. But he doesn’t do it for himself, he does it for his clients.

Just like his staff who learned from him. Sadie Ellis (Katherine Heigl) is a tough lawyer, who has know Roth since she was kid. They have a connection, which is why she is the lawyer she is and fights as hard as she does. Her latest client (Stephen Pasquale) was recently arrested for killing his girlfriend 24 years ago. He says he is innocent and now she will do anything to prove that he is. Especially because they have more than just a lawyer and a client relationship. Will she be able to prove his innocence?

Then there is her work husband, Albert Cobb (Dulé Hill), they have known each other since college and protect themselves from themselves. She isn’t the only one he keeps in control, he also keeps the whole office in order. Although, his love life it isn’t. Even though he is losing in love, he is winning in court. He is the type of lawyer, you want to defend you because he is the best at what he does. Just like Hill as an actor.

Cameron Wirth (Laverne Cox) is a Transgendered Ivy League, and she has been inspired by Roth ever since she saw him on television as a kid. When she fights for her clients, she does it with her all. She is an old school public defender at an expensive law firm. In the coming weeks, she will defend a college student who was raped and speaking out against her rapist. Instead of the school going after him, they are going after her. How will she convince the school to keep her client and go after the bad guy?

There are also two new lawyers. Tiffany Simon (Dreama Walker) is fresh out of Law School and the Iowa native is having a hard time adjusting to NYC. Unlike Nick Brady (Kobi Libii), who grew up in Brooklyn and studied law while he was incarcerated. Their prospectives are different and fresh from the senior members and it gives everyone new insight on their cases.

Doubt is a refreshing legal drama because it has heart. Something that is missing these days and something more shows need. It isn’t the only cases that make this show a winner, it is also the cast that makes you love them and want their representation if you were in that position. Which hopefully none of us will ever need, but no doubt we need Doubt.


The Rocky Horror Picture Show is a horror
October 20th, 2016 under Fox, Laverne Cox, Uncategorized. [ Comments: none ]

I went into The Rocky Horror Picture Show expecting to hate it, and the Fox production exceeded my expectations. Tim Curry and Meat Loaf have been on my To-Do list since I was kid, so this movie has a special place in my heart. Tonight at 8p, Fox broke my heart by destroying the classic cult film.
Instead of starting off with the infamous lips, we get a woman singing as she escorts people in to a movie theater. Those people are now supposed to be the audience that will represent the audiences that have been going to see the movie for decades at midnight on Friday nights.
If that was the only change, I would be OK, but it isn’t. Far from it. My iPod loves playing Dammit Janet and the version in this movie sounds different than the one I know. It isn’t only that. The pre-recorded tracks sound cheap and brassy, in fact all the tracks sounds that way and that it distracts from the telemovie.
If it was only the new arrangements that sounds bad and different, I would maybe forgive them, but it is also the acting and casting choices. The whole joke about Dr. Frank-N-Furter is he was a man poorly dressed as a woman, thus the song I am a Sweet Transvestite. Seeing Laverne Cox in the role, she looks like the woman she is and the joke and song are ruined. The rest of the cast also doesn’t get it and Adam Lambert’s death scene could not come soon enough.
Just like the ending of this reboot.
The original Rocky Horror was a great movie, and this is the community theater version of it that is playing in Dubuque, Iowa. And even their local reviewers can’t give it a good review.


The Sweet Transvestite is back for Fox’s Rocky Horror Picture Show!
January 15th, 2016 under Fox, Laverne Cox. [ Comments: none ]

Every time Fox announces who is going to star in their updated version of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, I cringe. Adam Lambert is no Meat Loaf, Victoria Justice is no Susan Sarandon and Laverne Cox is definitely no Tim Curry.
But then Fox made an announcement today that did not make my blood not boil, instead it made my blood and other body parts tingle. What you dare ask? They are doing a Time Warp of sorts and bringing back the extremely sexy Tim Curry to star as the Criminologist Narrator. Just to hear this news has my Thing singing toucha, toucha, touch me. Maybe there is hope for the musical that debuts this fall, what do you think?
In other Fox news, Empire and Scream Queens will be back for another season.
