Javier Muñoz Gets Shot at ‘Hamilton’ >>

Lin-Manuel Miranda is getting his shot at superstardom. Miranda started his Broadway journey off hot with his debut musical, 'In the Heights,' which won two Tony Awards in 2008 as well as a 2009 Grammy Award. The writer/actor/composer then went on to provide the translations for the 2011 revival of 'West Side Story.' Miranda went on to provide the music and lyrics for the Broadway adaptation of Bring It On the Musical. Miranda has even won an Emmy Award for composing music at the 67th Tony Awards. That puts him one O away from the prized E.G.O.T. (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony). All of Miranda’s passion and drive has lead to his latest masterwork, 'Hamilton' which has taken Broadway and the world by storm. Now, it looks like Miranda might be taking a breath from 'Hamilton.' The very in demand actor is reportedly being looked at to co-star in the upcoming 'Mary Poppins' sequel, directed by Rob Marshall ('Into the Woods,' 'Chicago'). Have no fear. When, Miranda isn’t in the lead Javier Muñoz is stepping into Hamilton’s shoes.
