Odds & Ends: Neil Patrick Harris Will Go From Hedwig to Freak Show & More

first_imgHere’s a quick roundup of stories you may have missed today. Neil Patrick Harris Will Go From Hedwig to Freak Show Ask and you shall receive! According to Variety, Hedwig and the Angry Inch headliner Neil Patrick Harris penned a letter to Ryan Murphy, the brains behind American Horror Story: Freak Show, saying he wanted to appear on the TV series. Murphy then tweeted the Tony winner: “of course you can be on Freak Show! I have a role I think you’d love.” If you’re unable to catch Harris in Hedwig on Broadway (he departs the musical on August 17), at least you now have this to look forward to! Glee’s Banned in Britain It’s really happened. Earlier this year we brought you the news that Glee could be banned in Britain (the owner of a comedy venue called The Glee Club complained the show infringed on his trademark). Now, Billboard.com reports that the U.K.’s High Court has ordered 21st Century Fox to change Glee’s name. We’re guessing the Hollywood bigwigs will be taking this to the Court of Appeal, but they’re running out of options.

It’s Only a Play’s Nathan Lane Explains Difference Between His and Rupert Grint’s Fans

first_imgTony winner Nathan Lane stopped by Late Night on September 30 to chat with Seth Meyers about his latest gig on the Great White Way: the star-packed It’s Only a Play. With such a variety of big names in the cast, the show is drawing in all sorts of fans, including the Potter-obsessed Rupert Grint fanatics. “You know your fans from his fans,” Lane explains, “because when you walk in to the stage door, and when you see people holding a wand and an owl, you know who they’re there for.” Very astute! How do you spot Stockard Channing fans? Are they all wearing White House pins and one of these? The Broadway funnyman also explained how easy it is for him to relate to the show, as he’s often waited for that mammoth review on opening night, for better or for worse. Check out the interview below, and catch all of the stars (and the very talented newcomer Micah Stock!) in It’s Only a Play at the Schoenfeld Theatre.
