Andrew Rannells Talks Hedwig with Fallon

With Neil Patrick Harris passing the Hedwig torch — er wig — over to Andrew Rannells on Aug. 20, the Girls actor has hit the late night circuit to promote his turn as the East German punk rocker. He stopped by The Tonight Show last night to chat with Jimmy Fallon about taking on the role. 

Besides explaining why the play’s called Hedwig and the Angry Inch (“It wasn’t a clean cut”) the new Hedwig star gave his Australian accent a test run. Apparently all you need to say is “Jennifer Lopez” and you’re golden.
