Reactions to the film's casting has already received mixed reviews online, including criticism from Sense8 star Jamie Clayton.

AHS co-stars Matt Bomer and John Carroll Lynch will appear together in the upcoming film Anything, which will follow a man (Lynch) who moves to Los Angeles after the death of his wife. There, he meets a transgender female sex worker (Bomer). The two soon come to terms with each other's histories and find companionship, reports Variety.

Maura Tierney, Micah Hauptman, Margot Bingham, and Melora Hardin will also star in the movie. The drama is based on the play by Timothy Mcneill, who will be directing the film.

Many are already critisizing the casting of Anything, angry that yet again the role of a transgender character is being played by a cisgender actor.

Sense8's Jamie Clayton tweeted this in response to the film's cast.

Theactress was then met with an unexpected block from Matt Bomer.

Anything's release date has not been announced.
