Hung star Thomas Jane will take
on a transgender client on the show's third season.
In the HBO series, Jane plays high
school teacher Ray Drecker, a struggling divorcee and father of two
teenagers living in suburban Detroit. With the help of former
girlfriend Tanya Skagle (played by Jane Adams), Ray begins
moonlighting as a male prostitute after a house fire leaves him with
few options. The pair call their business Happiness Consultants.
So far, Ray hasn't been willing to go
down the gay for pay route, but according
to TV Guide's William Keck that's about to change during
the show's third season, which premieres in October.
“[W]hen a rival anything-goes gigolo
hones in on Ray's territory in Hung's third season, Ray inches
closer to that forbidden LGBT zone,” writes Keck. “Mid-season,
he'll bed down with a pre-op transgender receptionist named Kyla
before contemplating a full same-sex encounter.”
San Diego native Jamie Clayton, the
co-host of VH1's TRANSform Me, will play Kyla.
Creator Colette Burson added that she
is exploring the possibility of making Kyla Ray's full-time
girlfriend in season 4.
