Ryan Murphy is bringing one of his vast stable of veteran actresses to Pose. At PaleyFest, Murphy told Pose cast members Mj Rodriguez and Billy Porter that they’ll be sharing screen time with the Broadway legend. And according to Deadline, Rodriguez was “gagged” at the pronouncement. The show will jump to the 90’s for season two, with the first episode taking place the day “Vogue” comes out. The drag community was divided on Madonna’s dance single when it came out. The House of Ninja felt the singer had stolen Willie Ninja’s style, while the House of Xtravaganza was employed by Madonna for several years (until that also ended in acrimony). The new season of Pose begins shooting this week and will air in June.
