Laverne Cox to join MTV lesbian comedy 'Faking It'
Laverne Cox will join MTV's comedy Faking It, which follows the escapades of two high school students who feign being lesbians in an attempt to become popular.
Cox – who plays hairdresser Sophia Burset on prison comedy Orange is the New Black – will appear on the show's second season set to air later this year.
The plot revolves around high school students Amy and Karma who pretend to be a couple to win the affections of their peers. The plan seems to be working when Karma attracts the attention of the popular and handsome Liam while Amy begins to develop actual feelings for Karma.
According to Entertainment Tonight, Cox will portray Margot – a teacher who is "demanding, intense and full of herself." She is set to star in two episodes.
