The 46-year-old actor revealed the audition process for his role of crime boss Dryden Vos was “humiliating” and that he basically “begged” for the part via text.

“Have you ever spent long winter evenings wondering why you’re not in the Star Wars franchise? I have,” Paul wrote to director Ron Howard in the text.

Ron replied, “LOL I’ll get back to you.” “It’s a true story,” Paul promised. “If you don’t ask, you don’t get. You gotta ask.”

Paul also shares why he refuses to watch the royal wedding, and why he thinks Meghan Markel is likely a spy for the U.S. – Watch more after the cut!

Did you know Yara Shahidi could rap?

The 18-year-old Black‑ish actress showed off her skills during her Tonight Show appearance on Monday (May 14).

“I have been such a large Hamilton fan and, I mean, I don’t want to take credit but I’m fully taking credit [for] the reason that anybody on the set [of Grown-ish] listens to the Hamilton soundtrack,” she told host Jimmy Fallon.

When Jimmy asked Yara what her favorite song from the musical is, Yara answered, “Cabinet Battle #1,” explaining, “I’ve made my brothers memorize the lyrics so we can battle.”

She then raps, “If we assume the debts, the union gets a new line of credit, a financial diuretic / How do you not get it? If we’re aggressive and competitive the union gets a boost / You’d rather give it a sedative?”

“Slim Shahidi made her first public appearance on @fallontonight ‼️ #Hamilton/homage ✨,” Yara shared on Instagram.

Fun fact: The Roots, the show’s band, executive produced the original Broadway cast recording.
