Netflix’s upcoming RuPaul-starring series AJ and the Queen will have quite the collection of supporting characters. The series will star RuPaul as Ruby Red, a “bigger-than-life but down-on-her-luck drag queen,” who travels the country with her sidekick AJ, who will be played by Izzy G. According to a casting breakdown distributed to talent agencies, the show is also looking to cast at least four regular supporting characters. The characters include:
• Louis, a “funny and warm” 40-something black man who went blind after a diabetic stroke in his early 20s. He is a “large, imposing” drag queen who can “put on his makeup flawlessly, pour Champagne perfectly, and refuses to put limits on himself because of his disability.”
• Ruby’s boyfriend Hector/Damien Sanchez, a “muscular, sexy, very hot” Latino man to whom Ruby gives her life savings so they can open their own drag club together. A “straight acting” gay man who is “pretending to be something he’s not,” he has “a dark, dangerous, hidden side.”
• Lady Danger is a “f*cked-up sexy” Asian woman with an eye patch, who’s described as a “comic villain.” She’s “infamous” in the local drag scene for “injecting cheap medical grade silicone (and Restylane and Botox) into her clients at the clubs, though sometimes she’s injecting motor oil.”
• Brianna, a white woman in her late 20s, is a “clueless hooker” with a “deep connection” to AJ.
May the best candidates sashay their way into the show.
