This week’s announcement that Matt Bomer — a cisgender, gay, male actor — will play a transgender woman in the upcoming film “Anything,” has reignited outrage, which has burned all week, over the casting of transgender female characters in movies.

The drama will be the directorial debut of Timothy McNeil, who also wrote the play upon which the movie’s based. In addition to Bomer, it will feature John Carroll Lynch, Maura Tierney, Micah Hauptman, Margot Bingham and Melora Hardin.

Mark Ruffalo is one of the executive producers.
