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.

That’s right: Our Photoshop time machine is now a Photoshop gender machine.

Neil Patrick Harris

They’re the new Berlin Wall, baby – just try to tear them down!

Jared Leto

Looks like the Dallas Buyers Club has at least one new member. One of these Letos should probably send a thank-you gift to the other one.

Lady Gaga

As her male altar ego Jo Calderone, Gaga’s got the scowl and swagger of a young Al Pacino.

Barbra Streisand

Unlike in Yentl, today Streisand would likely not have to dress as a man in order to study the Talmud.

Gwyneth Paltrow

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.

Tom Hanks

The Oscar winner and his cross-dressing self are a regular pair of bosom buddies.

Amanda Bynes

She’s the man, and also the woman.

Robin Williams

Mrs. Doubtfire and Mr. Doubtfire, together at last.
