Like a Juror: Even Madonna Gets Called for Jury Duty

Today We Learned That Even Madonna Gets Called for Jury Duty

Originally posted 07/08/2014 11:25AM

When you think of Madonna, there are all kinds of phrases that immediately leap to mind, word pairings like "Material Girl," "boy toy" or "pointy bra." Now you can add "jury duty" to that list. Sort of.

The 55-year-old pop star did report to a Manhattan courthouse on Monday morning to perform everyone's least favorite civic duty – but she was treated like, well, Madonna.

Hedwig and the Angry Inch's Neil Patrick Harris isn't the only big TV star up for a Tony Award Sunday night, but give him credit – he is the only TV star nominated for playing the role of a transgender East German glam-rocker.

In honor of Harris's transformation, we've decided to see what the How I Met Your Mother star looks like posing with his gender-flipped self, along with an octet of actors who – whether they played trans characters, or just cis folk forced to cross-dress by the demands of plot – also became their own personal Orlandos.
