Show Tunes Brought Andrew Rannells & Anne Hathaway Together

first_imgTony nominee Andrew Rannells stopped by The Today Show on September 23 to discuss his role in the new Nancy Meyers film The Intern. While there, he revealed that he didn’t have much internship experience of his own, aside from a gig during his freshman year at a talent agency, where he faxed headshots. Maybe he can get back into the biz with his Book of Mormon co-star and part-time agent Rory O’Malley? Unsurprisingly, Rannells and Oscar winner/musical theater enthusiast Anne Hathaway had a lot to bond over on set: “we nerded out a few times,” he said, and admitted that show tunes were indeed sung between takes. Check out the clip below, and catch The Intern in theaters beginning September 25. View Commentslast_img read more
