    Tell Us About Yourself(ie): Andy Mientus

    The actor takes our Q&A!

    What's your wallpaper on your phone and/or computer?

    Phone is a picture of my fiancé in the stage adaptation of Hunchback of Notre Dame. Computer is a tumblr picture that says "Love is a losing game." I'll speak to my therapist about this disparity.

    When you walk into a bar, what do you typically order?

    "A bottle of vodka and a floor plan"- Elaine Stritch

    What's the one word you are guilty of using too often?

    Dad. Not talking about an actual Dad.

    What is the last thing you searched for on Google?

    "pure rye whiskey elephant picture." Couldn't tell ya...

    Who is the last person that called or texted you?

    My fiancé.

    What was the last awkward situation you were in and how did you handle it?

    I'm currently making the guest list for my wedding and there is a lot of hard choices and awkward bargaining with my fiancé for which friends can be included. I'm on beta blockers.

    When is the last time you went to a theater?

    Earlier today, for my matinee.

    What TV show should everyone should be watching?

    Anything Greg Berlanti touches, not just because they are well plotted and entertaining but because they are cast with a real eye to diversity and inclusion. I really admire what he's doing.

    And what is your TV guilty pleasure?

    Pokemon. I watch it when I sleep sometimes. Thank God I'm already getting married...

    What's the first CD you bought?

    Jagged Little Pill. Ho-o-o-w appropriate.

    What is the one food you cannot resist?

    Fries. All the fries. With sauces.

    What music are you currently listening to?

    I've just discovered Little Dragon, so I'm late to the party but glad to be here.

    What movie makes you laugh the most?

    Dumb and Dumber.

    What drives you absolutely crazy?

    When you tell someone you haven't seen or heard a film or song or whatever and they respond "YOU HAVEN'T BLAH BLAH BLAH" like it's a personal affront to their well being.

    What was your first online screen name?

    lieinourgraves41. I was both deeply morbid and deeply into DMB.

    What's your favorite emoji?

    The crystal ball.

    Pick one: Kittens or puppies?

    Kittens. I'm very feline.

    New York or Los Angeles?

    Working on that one, currently.

    Comedy or drama?

    Drama. Comedy gives me anxiety.

    Bacon or Nutella?

    Dip A in B.

    Coffee or tea?


    '80s or '90s?

    '90s. I peaked in the '90s.

    NSYNC or BSB?


    Hannah Montana or Lizzie McGuire?

    Hannah Montana. Some of those songs were gold.

    And finally: tell us a secret.

    I've never seen West Side Story. I dare you to come at me for it.
