Happy 31st birthday, Jonathan Groff! (Ok, it was on Saturday, but still!)

During the Hamilton panel at this year’s inaugural BroadwayCon, the cast members of the Broadway phenomenon were all asked which actor they would switch roles with if they got the chance. Nearly every other cast member pointed to Groff, who plays King George III in the musical. The reason? Groff’s George only appears onstage for nine minutes of the nearly 3 hour show.

Of course, no one should take that as a sign that Groff isn’t a hardworking actor. Groff has been a star of stage, television, and film over the last several years, lending his voice to Frozen, appearing in American Sniper, starring in Glee, and appearing on Broadway in hits like Spring Awakening. Although he’s still a young actor, Groff

In this conversation from last year presented by the Screen Actors Guild Foundation and the New School for Drama, Groff speaks to Richard Ridge of Broadway World about his varied career. Though it particularly focuses on his Broadway experience, Groff also shares a humorous story about his encounter with fellow actor James McAvoy.
