Actress Laverne Cox will sit down with Megyn Kelly for the anchor’s upcoming prime-time special Megyn Kelly Presents, Fox announced Wednesday.

The Orange Is the New Black actress joins a lineup that includes presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, movie star Michael Douglas, and uber-lawyer Robert Shapiro.

Cox is best known for playing the magnetic prison hairdresser Sophia Burset on Netflix’s Orange Is the New Black, and in 2014 she became the first openly transgender person to receive a Primetime Emmy nomination in an acting category.

OITNB returns for its fourth season next month, and Cox is also set to play Dr. Frank-N-Furter in Fox’s small-screen reboot of The Rocky Horror Picture Show in the fall.

Megyn Kelly Presents will air Tuesday, May 17, at 8 p.m. ET on Fox.
