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.

Gwyneth won an Oscar for her role as a cross-dressing actress in Shakespeare in Love, an honor denied her character in the film, who lived 335 years before the Oscars were created.
The Oscar winner and his cross-dressing self are a regular pair of bosom buddies.
She’s the man, and also the woman.
Mrs. Doubtfire and Mr. Doubtfire, together at last.
