The Moment: October 7, 1959: Pillow Talk, with Rock Hudson and Doris Day, opens in theaters.
Andrew Rannells likes to keep on his toes, even when he’s in platform heels. After Hedwig and the Angry Inch won a Tony for Best Musical Revival, the actor inherited the lead’s golden tresses from Neil Patrick Harris for an eight-week run. Between that, wrapping the fourth season of HBO’s Girls, and shooting Nancy Meyers’s new fashion-focused workplace comedy, The Intern, he hasn’t had much time to catch his breath — and he wouldn’t have it any other way. “I like to try to make things as complicated for myself as possible,” he says, “so three jobs at once was a real smart way to do that.”
