  • It’s so great to see how far Ben has come, and how comfortable he’s gotten with being on interviews. I could feel the anxiety just radiating through the screen, but now he seems a lot more like himself, and that makes me very happy.

  • This has got to be the dumbest movie ever casted. This dude looks like he is a 30 year man in high school. His over the top acting like he is cowering and hunching trying to pretend to be a teenager is ridiculous. Worst acting ever!!! He should be cast in a movie that's fits his age appropriately and try acting like a normal human being. What's next Robert De Niro as a 5th grade bully!!! Holy stupid movie.

    • I respectfully disagree. Yes, he looks old for the role, but he played his role beautifully. He sung and acted his heart out. Do you know how taxing it is to act in a role like this, and to put yourself in that mental space for hours on end? Kinda sucks that Ben is the only actor getting singled out when his fellow cast mates are all within his age group, and for something entirely out of his control. Everyone gets older. To say he had the worst acting is a humongous stretch given this guy originated the role and was performing it on stage 8 times a week, making people weep. Actors are actors for a reason. I don't think age should strictly limit what characters you play. Movies would be pretty bland if that was how all casting was handled, don't you think?

    • Lol he shouldn’t have done the movie but it’s literally comical to say he’s a bad actor, he was all anyone could talk about when he did this role on Broadway. I saw the show twice, months apart, and both of them he bore his soul on that stage, bawling his eyes while singing like I have never witnessed in my life, and doing it 8 times a week! Yeah stage acting is the not the same as film, but he’s not a bad actor he just aged out of this role for film.

When I first saw this video and found out Stephen also cried throughout the musical I felt I was vindicated! 😁 Now that the trailer for the movie version is up on KZworld I cried some more.

  • "Sing after you cry" is sort of like "use your weakness as a strength." It reminds me of professional athletes with asthma, who intentionally induce an asthma attack prior to an event - there is a refractory period where you cannot have a second asthma attack, and they are able to perform their best during that window. I learned this as an asthma sufferer who has done 3 marathons, 4 half marathons, 5 triathlons, numerous 5ks, and 2 cyclocross races.
