‘Zoolander 2’ Nathan Lee Graham Goes Coast-to-Coast in New Hollywood & Gershwin Concerts
Nathan Lee Graham (Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, The Wild Party) is getting ready to go coast-to-coast. The Broadway star will be performing on both the east and west coast later this Spring in two all new concert events. Graham will start out west with You Oughta Be In Pictures, before heading east to perform Gaga for Gershwin. Graham is known to many as Todd in Zoolander. Graham will also be appearing in Zoolander 2. Recently, Graham opened up about how he was pulled from Broadway to be part of the film.
Recently, Graham spoke with Gotham Magazine about how he landed his now iconic role in Zoolander:
“Well, it was really quite amazing how I became a part of the original Zoolander! Ben Stiller happened to be in the audience of my first Broadway show, The Wild Party, that I did with Mandy Patinkin, Toni Collette, and my idol and mentor, the late, great Eartha Kitt. This was the final performance on a Sunday matinee in June 2000. The very next day, Monday, my agent was called, I was told to wear something fashionable, I show up in Tribeca, I meet Ben, and he says, 'Paramount is making a movie of a sketch I did on VH1 called ‘Zoolander.’ I have this character of Todd, we haven't written anything yet, I don't know what you'll be doing, do you want to do it?’ I'm like, ‘Yeah, my show just closed yesterday!’”
Grammy winner Nathan Lee Graham performs You Oughta Be In Pictures on April 21 at Catalina Bar & Grill in Los Angeles, produced by “Chris Isaacson Presents.”
