The Chad Michael Murray Institute for Sneaky Asians Invading Your Hot Tub Inquires: to beat the heat, what would you do?
ASkars cannot be shipped with the following fictional character:
A 1,000 year old Nordic vampire stoned on fairy blood is swimming in the water. What do you:
Ride all the roller coasters?
The Concern Troll Institute for the Stunningly Unaware Asks the Following: If an actor/musician familiar with stage acting (has done it since childhood, graduated from college with a major in it, writes musicals in his spare time, etc.) is in talks to do a short stint on a Broadway musical, you immediately:
Ha, for my last question, your reference/link is this: How to Succeed in Business is in talks with Darren Criss for taking over the role for 3 weeks. Note: it's only "in talks" stage so right now, I'm at the "oh okay" stage of fangirl whatever-ness.
I'm just really amused that people are like: OMG HE'S GOING TO FAIL. Since I am the only person who watches Curb Your Enthusiasm, I'll just say I have the perfect reference to make and it'll be wasted.
Oh fuck it. Basically fandom is being like Stephen Colbert's character when he meets Larry David (one of the seasons revolves around Larry David taking over one of the lead parts for The Producers on Broadway). Colbert's character gets annoyed at Larry (as it always happens) and goes up to Larry's face and intones, "YOU. ARE. GOING. TO. FAIL!"
If he can't do the work, he won't get hired. But some of the comments have been HILARIOUS. "I'm worried about his voice." Okay. They seem to fine with it. "I'm worried about his acting." Sure, okay then. It's not like he has any experience. "But what about the dancing?" Most valid, actually, if he doesn't put in the time and work before the stage rehearsals, then that would be bad but most Glee Live reports (especially those for the concert movie taping) noted he'd improved on choreography and was really concerned about getting steps right.
It's just so funny how people are all omg HDU ruin Broadway and most of them aren't even Broadway fans. Like. Dude. Do you know how many TV actors do short stints on Broadway? A lot. And seriously, if he can't do it and FAILS, then you can worry. Not before it's official.
God, people are fuckin' weird.
Can't we all be awesome like loony_moony and lol over Harry Potter replacing Harry Potter on Broadway?
