Beaubridges

Emmy-winner Beau Bridges plays a transsexual detective on tonight's episode of The Closer, and Uinterview sat down with the actor to talk about getting into the role, wearing women's clothing, and his respect for people who are contemplating a sex change.

"I had a part in a play called Looking for Normal by Jane Anderson a number of years ago in which I played a man who was contemplating a sex change. In preparation for the role, I did a lot of research on the subject and meeting people who had gone down that road. I have a profound respect for people who have had the courage to take that journey. It's not an easy one in today's world. This Closer episode offered me a chance to step into those shoes once again and honor those folks who have taken that path."
