Jeremy Jordan to Play Seymour in 'Little Shop,' Responds to Criticism He's 'Too Hot' for the Role

Jeremy Jordan will be starring in the off-Broadway production of the classic musical Little Shop of Horrors and now he’s responding to criticisms of his casting.

The 35-year-old actor, best known for his Broadway career and roles in TV shows like Smash and Supergirl, has been deemed “too hot” to play the role of Seymour.

Seymour, who was played by Rick Moranis in the classic film version of Little Shop, is known for being nerdy and someone who the character Audrey would normally not go for.

Slate published an article “Against Hot Seymour” that noted, “Hunky actors have no business playing the bespectacled nebbish of Little Shop of Horrors.”

Jeremy took to Twitter and responded to the article by sharing four photos of him showing off his nerdy side. He wrote, “This is my formal response.”

You can see Jeremy in the musical from March 17 through May 10 and tickets are on sale now!
