I think so. The former Disney star (who’s currently starring in the Broadway production of Heathers) was BEYOND adorable as nerdly Brad Majors in last night’s much antici…….pated Rocky Horror reboot. The rest of the cast was fair to middling with Laverne Cox and Victoria Justice each having a few standout moments (“Touch-a Touch-a” being the best song of the evening) – but don’t even get me started on those dreary Magenta and Columbias. And I about lost my damn mind when Rocky (a forgettably handsome Staz Nair) appeared in freakin’ gold BOARD SHORTS. Whaaaaaaat? Game over. Turn the damn channel. Who the hell green-lit THAT bright idea? The WHOLE POINT of Rocky is… oh never mind. If you can’t understand the importance of the gold Speedos to the plot and character, you don’t even deserve to be doing the show.
But back to Ryan McCartan. What revelation! The horned rimmed glasses! That perfectly floppy hairdo! The bow tie! The TIGHTY WHITEYS! I’ve never loved a man the way I now love him.
