Ok, so I think it’s about time we all appreciate the amazing person that is Ben Platt. He is sexy, he is funny and he is TALENTED. He is most recognized from his role as Benji in the first two Pitch Perfect movies, but he there is so much more to him!!
Did you know he was also in the original cast of the Tony Award winning Broadway musical, Dear Evan Hansen? His performance in this musical is so raw and so emotional; when I first heard him sing the songs from Dear Evan Hansen I bawled. He brings such a relatable character to life and gives so much joy to those struggling with social anxiety and depression; his performance and this musical are so important to me and everyone should experience it!
Did you know that he is also a songwriter? He came out with his first studio album, Sing to Me Instead Earlier this year. We already new that he had the voice of an actual angel but his lyrics and music string together beautiful stories of love and life. Needless to say, I’m OBSESSED.
If you’re like me and just can’t get enough Platt in your life, don’t fret! He has many more projects coming down the line! He will be starring in new show The Politician, coming out this September on Netflix! The show, created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk (American Horror Story) and Ian Brennen (Glee) will star Platt, Jessica Lange, Gwythen Paltrow, Zoey Duetch and more!
Hopefully we will continue to see him shine in everything he becomes a part of!
