Lea Michele and Glee Guest Skylar Astin Co-Starred in What Broadway Hit?
During Tuesday’s Glee Season 5, Episode 11: “City of Angels,” leading lady Lea Michele was reunited with a co-star from back in her days on Broadway. Skylar Astin is perhaps best known as the cute guy who romanced Anna Kendrick in Pitch Perfect. But before he and Lea made the jump to TV and film, they caught our attention for their work on the boundary pushing rock musical Spring Awakening.
During Tuesday night’s Glee episode, Wetpaint Entertainment asked users onViggle LIVE! if they knew which Broadway hit the two had co-starred in previously. Only 29 percent correctly guessed Spring Awakening. Most people, a total of 42 percent, thought the two had been co-stars in Les Miserables. Another 29 percent incorrectly guessed Fiddler on the Roof.
