Transgender Shakespeare: ‘Billions’ Star Asia Kate Dillon to Co-Star with Daniel Craig in Broadway’s ‘Macbeth’

William Shakespeare’s Macbeth will undergo a partial sex-change operation when a highly anticipated Broadway production starring Daniel Craig opens this spring. Showtime’s Billions star Asia Kate Dillon, who was born female but identifies as non-binary and uses “they / them” pronouns, will play the role of Malcolm, the eldest son of King Duncan.

Right after witnessing the final act of a Shakespearean tragedy in a Massachusetts courtroom, sports fans rubberneck a Shakespearean comedy on primetime television, atop checkout-line tabloids, and in every other place where gawkers go for gossip. Whereas Aaron Hernandez played Iago to Odin Lloyd, Bruce Jenner plays Rosalind to Diane Sawyer. None dare call him Ganymede.
