A top reality TV drag queen has landed a leading role in Miami Vice star Don Johnson's new drama set in a Beverly Hills hairdressing salon.
D.J. Pierce, aka Shangela, was a hit on quirky U.S. TV show RuPaul's Drag Race, and now he's set for more television stardom.
He tells Eonline.com, "I play Snip. He's a hairstylist out of New York who comes to Los Angeles and gets into the busy life of the salon.
"I'm a gay queen from New York City who does hair, so you know I have a bit of a b**ch in me."
Shangela reveals his character won't be in drag at first, but adds, "I always got a wig in the bag - so if they need it, it's there!"
The upcoming drama will also feature Ellen Barkin and Sex & The City regular Mario Cantone.
