Cheyenne Jackson worked up the gumption to star opposite six-time Tony winner Audra McDonald in their new film, “Hello Again,” by first working with another formidable singer, Lady Gaga, in FX’s “American Horror Story.”
Insiders say the role Jackson plays in “Hello Again” — based on the 1993 off-Broadway musical by Michael John LaChiusa — was difficult to cast.
Cheyenne was the top choice, but his schedule on ‘American Horror Story’ made him unattainable for the film’s schedule, a source said.
So the producers checked interest and/or offered the role to over 20 other actors who turned it down for reasons mostly having to do with the gay sexuality of the role — or for having to sing opposite Audra McDonald, which proved to be a daunting ask.” McDonald has won Tonys for shows including “Carousel,” “Porgy and Bess” and “Ragtime.”
In the end, Jackson’s schedule freed up and “he ended up taking the role — after starring opposite Lady Gaga he felt he was up to the challenge.”
“Hello Again” also stars Martha Plimpton, Rumer Willis and T.R. Knight.
