There are plenty of trans actors out there, if they want Big Names they can include them in supporting roles. I mean, everything hollywood makes is shit and i suppose that is to be expected, but it doesn't mean we shouldn't criticize them.

Scarlet playing a trans character is a way bigger draw though, and probably Oscar bait. They eat that shit up.

There are tons of trans actors that could do it, but Hollywood loves to use the same 30 actors for fucking everything. Fame is all that's really relevant.

Of course it is a symptom of cis-normativity, but it's more just capitalism being capitalism.
