Homeland star Morena Baccarin turned down transsexual role
Homeland and Stargate Sg-1 star Morena Baccarin had to give up her role as a male-to-female transsexual in cult U.S. comedy series It'S Always Sunny In Philadelphia after landing another TV gig.
The sexy actress played the quirky character in the show's pilot but had already moved on when it was picked up by bosses at cable channel FX.
She tells TV Guide magazine, "It was a lot of fun and we went crazy with it (character). The biggest research was what to put in my pants to make it (penis) look real.
"After the show got officially picked up, I was working on another project and couldn't do it, which made me very sad."
