Pounder Competes With Men For Shield Job

Actress CCH POUNDER's tough cop role in gritty drama THE SHIELD was originally written for a man.

The BAGDAD CAFE star was so determined to land a role in the show, she still auditioned.

She says, "I went to the audition with all these elder gentlemen and I wore pants.

"I remember I got all kind of macho and it was a wretched audition. At the end of it I said, 'If you're gonna do this again, could I come back and I would have decided what sex I wanna be.'

"I went back in a skirt and heels and I laid it out and that was it."
