Faking It - Season 2 - Casting News

Orange Is the New Black breakout Laverne Cox will guest-star on MTV’s Faking It as a Hester High alum and the director of the school’s elite drama club, EW.com reports.

Her character Margot, an H.H. alum, is described as “demanding, intense and full of herself” as well as “a big fish in a small pond — in her mind, at least.” An example of her challenging ways? “While holding auditions for the drama club, Margot puts hopefuls through a ghastly series of exercises, all designed to strip them down to their cores,” the mag explains.

The faux-lesbian comedy has enlisted Yvette Monreal and Keith Powers for recurring roles on the series from showrunner Carter Covington, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Monreal (El Rey Network's Matador) will play Regan, a hip, edgy lesbian with a rebellious streak. She's a cater-waiter by day and DJ by night who is fiercely out and proud and independent with a husky voice and sexy confidence who supports herself and her music career with odd jobs.

Powers (Pretty Little Liars) is set as the Theo, a friend of Liam's (Gregg Sulkin) who is full of Texas swagger. He's a laid-back guy's guy who enjoys working on cars, playing pool and making girls blush. He'll also spark with Lauren (Bailey Buntain).
