“Hung” Hires Transgender Actress Jamie Clayton

Hung” has hired transgender woman actress Jamie Clayton for a storyline on its third season. This is a big deal!

[My lowest moment was] probably driving into a door that opened. I’m very uncoordinated and extraordinarily klutzy.” [Showbiz SpyUSA Today]
