HOLLYWOOD - Transsexual Chaz Bono has just signed to star in the motion picture The Story of Sonny and Cher.
Mr. Chaz Bono, formerly Miss Chastity Bono will play both the part of her/his father and her/his mother.
Chaz who recently underwent sexual reassignment surgery said that he is thrilled to take on the task of portraying both genders.
The film's director Ferragamo Googafini, who last year directed the award winning movie, The True Story of Abraham Lincoln - The Pennies, The Logs, and The Cars, said that to the best of his knowledge, an actor taking on the dual task of a father/mother role has has never been done on the silver screen before.
Googafini noted that he recalls several years ago a male actor in Scotland, Cullen Cassidy portrayed all three parts of Glasgow's infamous Knockentiber triplets who were the real inventors of Scotch Tape.
And the amazing thing was that Cassidy stood 5 foot 11, and he weighed 225 pounds, but he managed to get down to 125 so that he could get into the actual dresses, shoes, swimsuits, and underwear that belonged to the Knockentiber triplets Megan, MacKenzie, and Maureen.
Chaz whose weight has recently ballooned up to 315 pounds said that the hardest part of the whole project was trying to get his voice down deep enough to sound like his mother Cher.
He said that attaining his Italian father's high-pitched voice was a piece of cake.
Mr. Bono was asked that now that she is a man what is the best thing about being a man that she enjoys the most. He thought for a few moments and then replied, "Well I like the fact that when I'm outside, I can just spit whenever I want. I like being able to say stuff like 'hey will ya look at the tits on that babe.' But most of all I like the fact that I can just relax and scratch my crotch 24/7."
The Story of Sonny and Cher will hit the movie theaters on Valentine's day.
