You need some comic relief in a nearly three hour show.

That song is pure genius. Between this and his role of Kristoff in the Frozen movies, he's gotta be on top of the world right now. If you haven't heard "Lost in the Woods", you're missing out.

Or seen it.  The song is a fun takeoff on '80s rock ballads, the animation is fun takeoff on '80s rock ballad music videos:

He's good in Mindhunter as well.

And in case you ever wondered why King George has a rather distinctive walk in the musical, costume weight + heels:

That's him on Mindhunter? He is pretty good.

I saw the touring version of Hamilton. The play is awesome, but the King George scenes are pretty funny. It's my favorite sing along part.

In a musical that has almost an all minority cast, King George is the only role that has been designated as ONLY to be played by a white guy.

The role was designed for mastication of the set.  I don't remember who played the role when it came through Denver when I saw it, but he did it very well.  A character you're supposed to love to hate.

This was my favorite part of TFA:

"Here it is if you'd like to contribute to its popularity and/or you're not especially bothered by the British government excessively taxing its colonies while denying them any representation in Parliament."

Hmm, that reality hasn't changed much, since Washington, DC may have elected reps in Congress but they don't have voting privileges, so residents of the Nation's Capital are in some ways no better off than those 18th century colonists. They pay all federal taxes but don't have an equal voice in the legislature compared to their fellow citizens from actual states.
