Should Scarlett Johansson — or any non-trans actor — play trans characters on screen?
Every Monday, the q screen panel convenes to look at big stories happening in the film and television worlds. This week, arts writers Tina Hassannia and Willow Maclay, and award-winning filmmaker Charles Officer, join Tom Power to discuss Scarlett Johansson coming under fire for signing on to play a trans man in an upcoming film called Rub & Tug. The film is based on the true story of Dante "Tex" Gill who was known for running underground massage parlours in Pittsburgh in the 1970s. They also fill us in on a new reboot of Chucky and remind us why the villainous doll has managed to stay in our pop culture.
