John Krasinski Surprises ‘Hamilton’ Superfan By Reuniting Cast For ‘Some Good News’
John Krasinski is a man that makes dreams come true, be it in real life or virtually — sometimes combining both.
The 40-year-old The Office star has released the second episode of Some Good News, a YouTube show that he created to provide some positivity into a world that is faced with a difficult challenge.
He was joined by a 9-year-old superfan of Hamilton over a Zoom video chat. During their conversation, she told him she was forced to cancel her trip to see the original cast of Hamilton. The young girl is called Aubrey, and Krasinski called her the shows’ “heartbreak correspondent.”
A Quiet Place director explained that, “Very sadly there was one little girl who’s dream could not come true because her long-awaited Hamilton experience was cancelled. Luckily she toughed it out though turning to the one person she could always count on, Mary Poppins.”
Krasinski orchestrated a cast reunion over Zoom, that included his wife Emily Blunt, who plays Mary Poppins in Mary Poppins Returns, Lin-Manuel Miranda joined the call — who created Hamilton — before the rest of the cast surprised the young girl; Daveed Diggs (Marquis de Lafayette/Thomas Jefferson), Christopher Jackson (George Washington), Okieriete Onaodowan (Hercules Mulligan/James Madison) and Phillipa Soo (Eliza Hamilton).
