31 January 2006 Felicity Huffman has won critical acclaim in new film Transamerica and it looks like Catherine Zeta-Jones be the jumping on the trans bandwagon.
It would seem an unlikely route to award success - but Desperate Housewives star Felicity has shown that being a woman playing a man who dresses like a woman can get you noticed. It's already bagged her a Tribeca Film Festival gong and a Golden Globe.
Now rumour has it Catherine is being lined up to play a 1960s sex-change cabaret artist in an upcoming movie.
The biopic of real-life aristocratic transsexual April Ashley will look at how her marriage to Baron Rowallan was annulled in a landmark court case. According to the New York Post, Catherine is being "lined up" for the role and film bosses are waiting to hear if she will say yes.
Hubby Michael Douglas, meanwhile, once joked that he thought Catherine was a "man in drag" when they first met because they didn't kiss until they'd been dating for nine months.
