Noah Reid replaces Armie Hammer in Broadway play

This makes me so happy, seeing people get good opportunities thanks to Armie Hammer's downfall.

I think he’d be great on Broadway and probably better than Hammer.

by Anonymousreply 1October 15, 2021 2:16 PM

Does anyone know if there are any actors getting naked in this? There's often nudity in a Tracy Letts play. I'm really only interested if Noah Reid shows cock or at least that nice round ass of his.

Is he the one who was in love with that flamer David in Shite's Creek?

Yes

I hope there is nudity too.

Actors Equity had to approve this casting because Noah Reid is CANADIAN

as such his casting would have denied an AMERICAN a chance at a star-making role

the only exception to this rule is if the actor in question is an INTERNATIONAL STAR who would pull in an audience

Actors Equity questioned whether Noah Reid is an INTERNATIONAL star - the producers insisted he is an INTERNATIONAL STAR

in the end the producers won

So is Noah Reid an INTERNATIONAL STAR

There's no nudity. It takes place in a town council meeting. The most skin is people stripping to their undershirts.

Well then it's no loos at all. Armie needs to find another project where he gets to show it all off

With all the Elon Musks and the Jeff Bezos', the Donald Trumps in the world why are people so obsessed with taking a poke at Armie Hammer? Yes, he is privileged, but his privilege hasn't been achieved on the backs of other people. The owners of companies like Uber, Amazon, Facebook and many others are worth billions and that's because they openly exploit and mistreat their employees. Why don't people have a go at them? You let them get away with sociopathic destructive greed, and go on and on about some middling actor who is not rich. In HW when I think rich , I think Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, even Jackie Chan is loaded. Armie Hammer? Not so much.

This play was on its way to being a flop before Covid hit. I expect it to disappear swiftly no matter who goes into it.

by Anonymousreply 27October 16, 2021 5:05 PM

Yeah, the show wasn't even doing 50% of its potential gross before the pandemic, with movie star Armie. It's not likely to do better now.

I loved Noah on Schitt’s Creek and think he’s cute but he doesn’t really have a body you want to see naked. Though I suppose that’s what personal trainers are for

R6 Do you have a link? I think you maybe misunderstanding equity rules. I know Noah's family. His mother (Doreen Balabanoff) and father (Stuart Ried) were my professors when I was a student at OCAD. Doreen is American (she became a Canadian citizen in the 90s) and Noah has dual US/Canadian citizenship: this is why Noah has worked in LA and appeared on several US TV shows and is a member of SAG.

Now, if Noah is not a member of Equity (the actors union for US theatre performers) than the producers would have had to justify why they wish to hire a non-equity actor. Claiming he is an international star is one way producers can do this.

You cannot pick your family. Armie is in his 30s, don't you think it is fair he's judged by what he himself does?

No-one is outraged about that; nobody creates multiple threads. Mind-boggling

r16/r38, if you're here on a gay gossip site, you're obviously not really invested in taking down the capitalistic system of billionaire privilege or in ensuring fair rights for workers. You are here for gossip about celebrities. Obviously you feel extremely protective of Armie Hammer for some reason, which means you're some sort of fangurl for him. Unfortunately, we will not lay off a celebrity just because he happens to be a personal favorite of yours.

You are hypocritical, as well as hysterical and ridiculous.

No, there are loads of things to gossip about. There are threads on politics (e.g. brexit, on Chinese Cersorship, etc...), there are threads on economics, on finance, there are threads that comment on what is happening in the news, on films, on real estate, on fashion, on food, etc..... You can gossip about anything you want here. Thankfully gay people are not that limited.

His family, in particular Armand, was notorious. Plus, the A&H dates back to the 1860s so God only knows what evil they visited upon the workers before labor laws were enacted.

I'm not saying the Hammers are the same as the Sacklers or that A&H is the same as Nestle, but they're not innocents in the woods either.

R53 There is no gossip about Noah really. He comes from money, both his parents are successful designers and tenure professors at OCAD in Toronto. On one of the Canadian gossip threads there was some suggestion that his father had a bit of a "reputation" at the university.

Having read a review of the Steppenwolf production in 2017, the play sounds good and Reid strikes me as a much better fit for the "aw shucks Jimmy Stewart type" character (per Variety's description) than Hammer.

Reid has done a fair amount of theater in Canada, so he'll be just fine.

BTW, Reid also has a few CDs out of his songs. Anyone heard them?

by Anonymousreply 63October 24, 2021 11:43 PM

Yes his music is average at best. The cover he did on Schitt’s Creek of the Tina turner song was better than any of his CDs.

by Anonymousreply 64October 25, 2021 12:09 AM

^ That's because I arranged it for him. Noah originally wanted to do an acapella rendition of Rhinestone Cowboy. I don't why I ever hired him.

Noah is absolutely adorable listening to this screaming Mary run her mouth about loyalty and sex and getting a handjob.

r67, it's from a Canadian TV show he did called Kevin From Work

Offsite Link
by Anonymousreply 68October 26, 2021 11:33 PM

KEVIN FROM WORK was not a Canadian series - it was American and made for ABC Family. I saw one episode and it was pretty mediocre, mostly due to the writing. Reid was charming, but that wasn't enough.

I disagree with R64 about his music after listening to his recent CD GEMINI. Don't like all the songs, but most of them are solid. He's introspective without being cloying like that navel-gazing mess Ben Platt. At times his voice sounds a lot like Paul Simon's and it works well for the kind of stuff that he does, including "Simply The Best" on SCHITTS CREEK.
