Interesting professional career fact for Ben Platt.

His Dear Evan Hansen performance, this one role, did this for him-

[quote] Because of his role in Dear Evan Hansen and his performances on its cast album and on TV appearances, he's three-fourths of the way to an EGOT: he has his individual Tony, shares (as a lead vocalist) in the Grammy won by the Dear Evan Hansen cast album, and shares in the Emmy won by the cast for their live performance on Today in 2017.

R157, From what I remember of that weekend the leaks were coming out almost non-stop. The thread became insanely popular because it was already full of Broadway boys who told their friends, who told their friends who immediately logged on to LPSG. So by the time people showed up with higher profile leaks the thread was already being watched heavily. People with better representation like Andrew Rannells, Ben Platt and Billy Porter (yes, I know disturbing) had their nudes pulled quickly.

For those who didn't, the longer they stayed up the more time people had to save them to repost them. That was when the site owner made a public Do Not Post list so people knew who had contacted him and told him they wanted off the damn site.

One long time poster (who implied he was Gavin Creel for years in the Broadway threads ... and then deleted his account after) said that everyone knew about the the thread once chunks of people started disappearing and that they had for a while. To this day many minor actors monitor that thread.

by Anonymousreply 15805/15/2020

There's also the chance Noah likes having his nudes out there. His Grindr profile didn't try to hide who he was at all - in fact much the opposite it's like he wanted to be recognised in case there were any star-fuckers viewing him.

R159, The main purpose of the thread wasn't leaks back then. It was mostly gossip and photos actors posted on instagram. The leaks thing was weird, I'm not a fan of that. It just came out of nowhere.

You are right, they have never. That being said, the funny thing about that poster is that whenever anyone would ask if they had seen Gavin or had Gavin, that poster would always say they'd NEVER see Gavin. He'd appear out of nowhere just to say it. Otherwise he stuck to gossip.

After over a year of this, someone asked again. He responded that they didn't exist and then that same person finally asked HOW did he know pictures didn't exist since he was always saying they didn't every single time someone said Creel's name. I think his response was something simple like a smiley face as he said again, he was sure he'd never see anything like that.

He deleted after the leak weekend but not before warning everyone that everyone knew about the thread. He was a nice poster though, whoever he was. He really knew his shit.

I don't know enough about Ben Platt besides Will & Grace. I just watched a few of his singing videos on YouTube, he's pretty good, I'd say better than most of the pop singers of today, and judging from the comments he seems to have a decent fan base who find him quite attractive. I don't get the hatred here, maybe you Broadway fraus should find a hobby... or a mirror. Guarantee most of you look like dogshit.

R259 got it right. The Platts have been foisted upon us by their ultra powerful father. You need to look at his producing credits. His hands have been in every pot from TV, to film, to the Great White Way.

Ben was cute ONCE in the FIRST Pitch Perfect. Since then he's been acting as if the world's his bar mitvah. AND IT MIGHT BE! His father didn't need to produce Dear Evan Hansen. That'd be uncouth. That's a character that Pasek and Paul were working on WITH Platt. By then Platt had already had a reputation, and was merely looking for the proper vehicle. DEH was IT, and he was lucky enough to ride that wave to The Politician, but he's going to be stuck in Murphy's Tiger Beat cabal.

They're all starting to look like his collectibles, huh? I wonder if he pits them against each other from time to time, just to keep things interesting.

Anyway, rest assured that Noah wants what Ben's got, but it's fucking WEIRD because they've played the same role on Broadway, doesn't that seem mentally/emotionally incestuous/narcissistic?

Another pair of Evans were dating as well. That fucking... gay vegan. He's hilarious. Taylor Trensch! He was doing Evan on Broadway while dating the touring Evan.

Broadway's too interconnected.

by Anonymousreply 26205/21/2020

On R261!!!

So Jonah's awful. Truly awful. Could be hot. Maybe he is. But his vlogs were the worst out of all those Wicked cast vlogs. He has no personality, and you can tell he's just been propped up his whole life because his father's well connected. But he doesn't have a tenth of his brother's talent, despite the Jew jock vibe, which is HOT, but this dude's such a charisma suck that it's not worth spending time with him.

There've been hotter Fiyeros as well.

I don't think Jonah's done anything since those vlogs, but I wanted to address them because at the end of one of the episodes, his friends/family come visit his dressing room, including his brother and his lovely bestie BEANIE FELDSTEIN!

Beanie is ALSO part of this well connected crew, and you can see how she (and her older brother) just moseyed their way into some prestige titles!

Beanie's playing Monica Lewinsky in Murphy's upcoming Emmy bait!

I'm not joking when I say that Ben and Beanie have been expecting their career status their entire lives. They both had industry parents and have just been biding their time.

Now? They'll be unstoppable. Beanie will win an Emmy for playing Monica, because Monica WILL BE part of that press circuit the way Marcia was for Sarah Paulson's win.

Ben Platt, however, isn't as talented as Beanie, nor as likeable. This will cause tension in the future when Beanie's nominated for Best Supporting Actress. Ben will never reach such heights, and it's possible that with his campy little concert, he's peaked.

Platt was cute in RICKI AND THE FLASH (also produced by Daddykins) as well as the first Pitch Perfect. He's generally better onscreen in smaller doses. And he was excellent in EVAN HANSEN (though others have played the role extremely well too).

I tried to listen to his SING TO ME INSTEAD CD and could only listen to a few of the songs all the way through. Way too much icky neediness. So there's way I'm going to watch that Radio City concert. As noted above, Plat must be very high-maintenance.

I do like Feldstein in everything I've seen her do so far. There was a lot of talent in BOOKSMART (Galvin was not a highlight however), especially Kaitlyn Dever as Feldstein's BF. Dever was superb in the Netflix series UNBELIEVABLE (with Merritt Wever and Toni Collette) - if you haven't watched it, I highly recommend it.

I swear to GOD they all hoof it on the stage, hoping for that big break on some CBS sitcom, and then MAYBE they'll become popular enough to cut a record, but whether it'll be original work or covers of standards who knows?! (most likely the latter)


All of them. All these well respected Tony award winning performers have CORNY fucking music specials or albums. But they never seem to stick. Even Lea Michele released a Christmas album this past year and no one fucking cared.

Platt's roles are limited. He should milk it for all it's worth for now, because he'll soon be relying on daddy's checks and Beanie's rep to keep him relevant, because DEH's already been touring into oblivion and even the Hamilton cast has had a hard time genuinely breaking through.

Platt is the gay male Lea Michele.

The point about Broadway actors and recording careers is so accurate. They all do an album of Broadway songs, but it's always the same ones (for men - Anthem, This is the Moment. Women do On My Own, Memory), with maybe a cover of Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah thrown in. The arrangements are usually bland. Then a crappy nondescript pop/easy listening album.

The best Broadway actors with good recording careers are the ones who play to their strengths - Lea Salonga, Barbara Cook, Audra McDonald - they do a mix of standards and some under-appreciated gems and they keep the orchestrations to what you might hear in a theatre rather than pop-ifying them.

by Anonymousreply 30405/24/2020

[quote] Does anyone know the choices behind doing that at the Tonys?

On the page it should have worked.

See, this was the problem with Glee. It had ONE good season and turned into a cloying phenomenon that ultimately doubled as a train wreck, but REALIZE! That wasn't just Lea's performance! It was Matthew Morrison's as well. He did his number on stage then handed it off to Lea, who was already in the audience!

Then she charges down the aisle like a rhino. Has a brief moment with Groff because we're fully pandering by this point, and then they fucking met on stage or whatever and honestly was just a GODDAMN PROMOTION FOR GLEEEEEEE!

LOOOK! Our Broadway stars MADE IT!

Also, keep in mind... Lea Michele was FULLY unstoppable for a second, and her behavior was FULLY enabled!

If you watch the behind the scenes for Glee (on YouTube), they have footage of her audition. She's in character, right? And she's already nailed the character by the way, and she's honestly perfect, and it's a scene that requires singing, and the accompanist messes up, then Lea [as Rachel (as Lea)] straight up SNAPS at him. Like walks over and verbally gives him what for, but it's in character, so they're like ha ha ha, how genius, let's cast her, but I think in that moment Lea realized she could get away with ANYTHING.

She fused with her character, and we saw that oneness at the Tonys.

She told herself the night before, just like Rachel would, "This is my moment. I'll return back to Broadway, but this time as a FEATURED PERFORMER FROM A HIT SITCOM! O'Hara, Hilty, Benanti, they'll all be JEALOUS! And they'll see. They'll see that I'M THE NEXT BARBRA! I'll perform the song I've been performing in my bedroom every day since I could breathe and now's my chance. They'll have no CHOICE but to cast me in the next revival or film adaptation, but that'll be after I'm obviously cast as Elphaba in the film adaptation of Wicked! One must bide one's time."

Also, Groff, Michele, Platt, & Feinstein is something that DL could write PAPERS on. Also sounds like a law firm.

Beanie will go Groff's way. Platt Michele's.

Groff, by the way, was the new Barbra when he was in Hamilton. I think he modeled his walk down the stage after one of her televised performances from back in the day. He was a phenomenon.

Here's the thing though. We know Lea has an Emmy and Golden Globe noms, but like... she has no Tony nom. That HAS to sting. I bet she's been carrying that since Spring Awakening after Groff was nominated and Gallagher won. Not that Tonys mean much in the grand scheme of things, but at the end of the day, I'd argue it's better to have a Tony nom for ANYTHING on your CV than an Emmy nom for Glee, much less the two Globe noms.

That was the other issue with Glee. The fucking tricked the Academy with that first season's competent, after school flamboyance. It was honestly Jane Lynch that was keeping the show popular.

I think that's why Murphy has so many fucking things running because he knows by the time one derails he's lined up some fucking prestige mini-series that'll sweep the Emmys next season.

He can literally do what he wants, though did The Politician work out for him? It don't feel like it got that much buzz. I guess the Emmys will be announced in a month so we'll see if Platty pusses his way in, but I doubt it.

Maybe he can submit his concert special in those categories Beyonce's Homecoming was nominated for.

Hahah, remember when Beyonce did Platt this favor by meeting him in his hotel room after the show? HOW CANDID!

R307 Groff’s my homeboy, my family basically founded Lancaster County and there are intermarriages with Groffs, so I in my mind we’re related in some way. I thought the walk was predicated on the weight of the crown and fear of it falling off? So true the about the pathways, down to Platt & Michele hooking up with Murphy. It looks like there were three legacy living legends Lea had to go up against to get nominated that year, if anything LBB is the one that must sting. And ultimately the right person won.

by Anonymousreply 30905/24/2020

That's so cool that you've got Groff ties! Groff's great. I'm so happy for him! Weirdly enough he's fun to watch. He shouldn't be. And it's not even because he's gay. It's like he knows how to play with/against that farmboy look to his advantage. He'll always pull some inspired surprise out of his sleeve. It's cool!

[quote] I thought the walk was predicated on the weight of the crown and fear of it falling off?

It is! Groff talked about that and more on Colbert. Apparently the crown was a big deal for all the George's, but he found that he was forced to walk in place just to keep it steady, so he found inspiration from Barbra to make it look goooood. I think!

R307 All of which raises the question - how was (is?) she Groff's best friend? Either she's acting nice around him constantly, or he has a much nastier side he's hidden away from public view.

I remember hearing stories from the Spring Awakening workshops where Creel and others would be meeting fans afterwards and she'd phone him from across the street - having sneaked out - and yell at him for making her look bad, or that it's not what 'stars' are meant to do or something like that.

Not to derail the Platt-Galvin’s thread with Groff, but why not, they deserve it! Here’s a video of him on the family farm with an annoying interviewer. They are having loads of fun including making the fainting goats faint. He looks so beefy here, I mean check out those thighs, thicc!

Ben Platt tried to fuck Groff? How depressing for Platt. I can imagine Lea DYING hearing that news.

[quote]or he has a much nastier side he's hidden away from public view.

This is what I actually believe. You can see this side of him with Lin actually back when the Hamilton cast was playing up their everlasting bond for the fandom. Groff, I'm pretty sure, glided over all the drama cause he literally had three songs and could just be a bitch the entire time, but he and Lin had this like... I don't know, they were really cute together they. They'd record fun little things, and you could always tell that the vanilla exterior's literally just that.

Are they still close? I'm sure they are. What's Lea even DOING?

Honestly, you gotta ask yourself why they never made Wicked around her. I'm actually not joking. Again, it should have happened. Glee was 09? They should have released it the winter Les Mis came out. That's maybe the only time it could have worked with her in regards to relevance, but why wait? Right? WHY WAIT?!

I bet they didn't want her. They knew the fans practically EXPECTED her to play Elphaba in the film adaptation. It was fancast the moment she appeared in Spring Awakening. She's obviously been hearing it her whole career, and I'm sure loved it. They even had Idina play her biological mother on an episode of fucking GLEE! I'm TELLING you Lea's agent was on the phone with Universal, who's owned the rights, BUT HOLD ON!

Ben Platt's DAD owns the RIGHTS! HOLY SHIT GUYS!

Okay, new theory. Platt's dad OWNS THE FILM RIGHTS TO WICKED. Has owned them. If Groff denied his advances... I don't know. Wouldn't be surprised if Platt told his daddy NOT to cast Lea specifically because of some petty bullshit.

Maybe Beanie wants the role.

Do you mean the drama over the royalties? Keep in mind he wasn't part of the "lab" so he wouldn't have had a stake in any of that, which makes keeping out of the drama a lot easier.

[quote]Honestly, you gotta ask yourself why they never made Wicked around her

They weren't going to risk Wicked's box office on making the film that early on. Universal let Les Mis be the test subject as to whether a film would impact live ticket sales (for London anyway). Besides, outside of her own mind, her success on Glee wouldn't have necessarily translated to being able to open a film.

by Anonymousreply 32005/24/2020

I’m a bad gay and refused to see Wicked, I loved the book and Gregory McGuire and don’t want to ruin that. But from what I know of the show, wouldn’t Lea want to be Glinda? That’s the shiny pretty role and fits her demeanor more doesn’t it?

Does Tom Hardy have a father that essentially produced every major work of art you know?

Platt's father not only has the rights to the film adaptation of Wicked. Motherfucker produced the Broadway show.

You won't hear anything bad about Platt because people enjoy their careers. Notice Platt doesn't socialize outside of his curated circle of connected Broadway peeps.
