Did the producers of ABC’s Dirty Sexy Money have a crystal ball?
They cast William Baldwin in the character of Patrick Darling, attorney general for the State of New York, who has a secret, transgendered, girlfriend who could cause him all sorts of trouble if the public finds out.

“I got a phone call from Andrew Cuomo the other day,” Baldwin said on Friday. “He left me a voicemail talking about how life imitates art. …

“I mean if I’m not that stupid, how could he be that stupid? The guy graduated from frickin’ Harvard.”
