The Cast Of "Hamilton" Next To Their Real-Life Historical Characters
History has its eyes on you, guys. No pressure.
Lin-Manuel Miranda as Alexander Hamilton, the ten-dollar Founding Father without a father.
But it's fine, he grows up to be a hero and a scholar.
Leslie Odom, Jr. as Aaron Burr, sir, the prodigy of Princeton College.
Expert of waiting for it, keeping his plans close to his chest, and missing out on what happens in the room.
Phillipa Soo as Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton, best of wives and best of women.
She'll tell your story.
Renee Elise Goldsberry as Angelica Schuyler, Thomas Paine enthusiast, the oldest and wittiest of the Schuyler sisters.
Also, rejector of satisfaction.
Christopher Jackson as George Washington, the venerated Virginian veteran.
And constant reminder that history has its eyes on you.
Anthony Ramos as John Laurens, redefiner of bravery.
Ramos also plays Philip Hamilton in the show's second act, who had the same virtuosity and brains as his pops.
Daveed Diggs as Marquis de Lafayette, The Lancelot of the revolutionary set, makin’ Redcoats redder with bloodstains.
Diggs also plays Thomas Jefferson in the show's second act, master of stayin' mellow in Monticello.
Okieriete Onaodowan as James Madison, soldier for the South.
Onaodowan also plays Hercules Mulligan in the show's first act. But he needs no introduction (when you knock him down he gets the fuck back up again).
Jonathan Groff as King George III, master of the sassy walk, most hilarious of monarchs.
He will send a fully armed battalion to remind you of his love.
