These Trans Actors Could Have Been Cast Instead Of Scarlett Johansson In Her New Movie

Some took to Twitter to offer their thoughts on Johansson’s casting.
One man sarcastically asked if Johansson’s next role would be to play the first black president of the United States.
Another woman accused Johansson of wanting to take acting jobs away from every marginalized group.
CNN has reached out to Johansson for comment.
Minority actors have long complained that they struggle to get cast in Hollywood even as producers say they can’t find the right actors for their projects.
Here are a few actors who could have been considered for the “Rub & Tug” film:

Ellie Desautels

Desautels is among the few actors who are nonbinary — people who identify themselves as neither male nor female — and who have appeared on prime-time network series. Most recently, Desautels played a transgender high school student named Michael Hallowell in the now-canceled NBC drama “Rise.”
“We need roles written for everyone — and casting directors should then know how to cast those roles accordingly,” the actor said in an interview with GLAAD.

Chaz Bono

The LGBT advocate and child of performer Cher and the late entertainer and politician Sonny Bono was the first transgender contestant on “Dancing With the Stars.”
Last year, the 49-year-old actor starred on “American Horror Story: Cult.”
Bono also is the author of several books, including “Transition,” in which he talks about identifying as a transgender man.

Emmett Jack Lundberg

Lunderg is a filmmaker and actor known for “Brothers,” a web series following the lives of four transgender male friends in Brooklyn.
The series was named one of Indiewire’s 10 Best Indie TV Series in 2014.

Ian Harvie

A former standup comedian, Harvie has starred in several TV series.
The trans actor appeared in Amazon’s “Transparent” in 2014 and since then has been a guest star on several other shows, including NBC’s “Will & Grace.”
“When we get to see ourselves in the media, we get to feel like we exist, especially when there’s positive representations of trans people,” Harvie said in an interview with CNN’s Brooke Baldwin.

‘Give transgender talent a chance’

Transgender roles in movies and TV are rare. Until recently non-transgender actors were mostly cast in those parts.
Only 17 regular and recurring transgender characters were tracked across broadcast, cable and streaming television series in the 2017-2018 season, according to a report released by GLAAD Media Institute.
On Tuesday, Johansson responded to those critical of her casting in the forthcoming film by mentioning others who have played trans roles in Hollywood.
“Tell them that they can be directed to Jeffrey Tambor, Jared Leto and Felicity Huffman’s reps for comment,” she said in a statement obtained by Bustle.
Jared Leto won an Oscar in 2014 for his portrayal of a transgender woman with AIDS in “Dallas Buyers Club.” Felicity Huffman earned an Oscar nomination for her role as a trans woman in the 2005 film “Transamerica.”
