Before 2019, Felicity Huffman was best known as one of America’s most celebrated actresses. The Emmy Award winner and Academy Award nominee was renowned for her iconic role as Lynette Scavo on the campy television show Desperate Housewives. And for her touching turn as a transgender woman in the film Transamerica.
In March of this year, Felicity took on a role she probably never imagined she would be playing. She became the face of the notorious college admissions scandal, along with actress Lori Loughlin. Felicity pled guilty to fraud for paying $15,000 to boost her daughter’s SAT scores. She was just sentenced to 14 days in jail, one year of probation, 250 hours of community service and fined $30,000. Obviously, casting Felicity at this point might be a bit tricky, at least until she completes her sentence.
