A lot of people are upset by James Corden‘s casting in the new movie The Prom and his co-star Andrew Rannells is reacting to the controversy.

'The Prom' Has a Joke About TV's 'Two Of a Kind' That Made So Much More Sense on Broadway

There’s a joke in the new movie musical The Prom that might not make a lot of sense to you if you didn’t see the Broadway version.

When the Broadway stars in the movie arrive at a motel in small-town Indiana, the clerk doesn’t recognize Meryl Streep and James Corden‘s characters Dee Dee Allen and Barry Glickman, but he does recognize Andrew Rannells‘ Trent Oliver.

Trent, a fictional character, is best known for playing “that guy” on the ’90s sitcom Talk to the Hand.

The hotel clerk that tells Trent that he recognizes him as the star of Talk to the Hand and notes that the show is on “right after Two of a Kind.” What made this line so funny on Broadway was that Trent was played by Christopher Sieber, who starred on Two of a Kind as the Olsen Twins‘ single father. The scene was like a wink-wink moment between the actors and the audience and it always got a ton of laughter.

None of the stars from the Broadway version were included in the film version, though the movie still brings the show’s magic to life!

Andrew Rannells & Jimmy Fallon Recap 2020 with a Musical - Watch Now!

Andrew Rannells and Jimmy Fallon are looking back at the mess that was 2020.

The 42-year-old Boys in the Band actor stopped The Tonight Show on Monday (December 7) to recap the year with the help of Broadway songs.

In their musical sketch, Andrew and Jimmy sing about the pandemic, self-isolating at home, spending too much time on the game Animal Crossing.

“2020, oh what a journey,” Jimmy started. “How has one year felt like 30?” He then breaks in to songs with lyrics that included activities that we weren’t able to do because of the pandemic, like “seeing a concert,” “shopping for bedding” and attending a family reunion on a Disney cruise.

Andrew then joins in singing about Zoom meeting: “On top I’m dressed, waist down I’m a mess, I’m ready to work from home.”

“I think that I’m losing my sanity… I gotta leave this house,” the two sing together.

Set to tune of “Memory” from Cats, Jimmy sings: “Memories, drinking lattes at Starbucks…Sitting crammed into tables, with nowhere to put my arms.”

The recap musical also included the election, Moderna vaccine and attending outdoor birthday parties.

“When 2020 started it was supposed to be my year,” Andrew sings. “So, what happened? Took a shower once a month, while trembling in fear, God what happened? A Virus that infects the entire world.”
