The second trailer and first song from ‘Tick, tick… BOOM!’ have been released along with a new poster. You can see the videos below and the poster in the gallery along with some new stills from ‘The Eyes of Tammy Faye’.
Andrew has been busy promoting both ‘Tick, Tick… Boom!’ and ‘The Eyes of Tammy Faye’ recently. First up, he gave an interview to The New York Times accompanied by a new photoshoot which you can see in the gallery. He was also on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. You can see that below. And lastly, some new stills and BTS photos from ‘Tick, Tick… Boom!’ have also been added to the gallery.
Miranda saw Garfield in the 2018 Broadway production of “Angels in America” and thought he was “transcendent” in that show. “I just left thinking, ‘Oh, that guy can do anything,’” the director recalled. “I didn’t know if he could sing, but I just felt like he could do anything. So I cast him in my head probably a year before I talked to him about it.”
Miranda put Garfield through his paces, sending him to a vocal coach and ensuring that the actor would be able to play enough piano so the camera could pan from his fingers to his face throughout the film. But those are just the technical aspects of a performance that is impressively possessed: Garfield plays the passionate, frustrated Larson with enough zealous verve to power all the lights on Broadway.
Andrew gave a new interview for Variety to promote ‘The Eyes of Tammy Faye’ and ‘Tick, tick… Boom!’. It aso features a couple of new photoshoot images. You can read the interview at the link and see the images in the gallery.
Still baby-faced at 38 years old, Garfield is tasked with aging over four decades and selling the complicated story of Bakker. The man was a cherubic young pastor whose self-worth issues and deep belief in his interpretation of Scripture led to disgrace. Later this fall, Garfield will bookend the festival season with the November AFI Fest premiere of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s feature directorial debut “Tick, Tick … Boom!” The Netflix musical follows the artistic and emotional journey of late “Rent” creator Jonathan Larson. In his most demanding screen role to date, one that requires him to sing and dance, Garfield embodies the trailblazing, multitalented lyricist and composer who brought issues of race, classism and homophobia to the establishment’s front door before his sudden death.
People has released the first stills from ‘The Eyes of Tammy Faye’. You can see the ones featuring Andrew in the gallery and the rest at the link.
