Cherry Jones tells The New York Times she’s having the best year ever. A quote on why she thinks Jill Soloway cast her in Transparent Season 2:

Well, I think it was important to her that I was a bona fide older lesbian. But it was so funny. I said to Jill: “All my life I’ve been gay and have always known I was gay. I was a tomboy and always thought I was pretty masculine.” So when she said, “You’re going to be playing this great dude dyke professor,” I thought, Perfect. And then I realized, I am such a girl. I had to really work on my dude dykeness. Thanks to Eileen Myles, I got my hair cut into this short style. It’s changed my life. I feel semi-hip now.
