|Christian in Spamalot|
Middle French Knight
He is up against a much meatier performance (Jeremy Shamous in Claybourne Park - my review) and against a Hollywood Star (Andrew Garfield in Death of a Salesman).
But I am not picking him as Mascot because he might win. I am picking him because he is totally fun and effortlessly glides into most roles. US TV viewers probably know him from Smash as Debra Messings writing partner.
Lisa and Eddie probably remember him from Legally Blond - as the original Emmett.
What you might not know is how great he has been in a raft of roles. Or what a great voice he has. He was once married to Sutton Foster. Yes, the gay guy on Smash is actually straight. Which is odd considering how many guys are gay on Broadway, they get one straight one to play a gay guy. But he's great at it.
