Playbill Q and A with Jonny Orsini

He has the most striking eyes I've seen. I did have a chance to see him in "The Nance." It was a moving and poignant performance. In this questionnaire with Playbill, he does mention that he's not really a fan of musicals. Hmmm. I guess he'll be sticking with plays then. He really is talented in whatever he does. from RC in Austin, Texas (seeing Terra C and the cast of "Chicago" tonite here in town.)

Clearly you didn't see him in MACBETH. If you had then you wouldn't hope he'd stick with acting.

ETA: Made a little mistake posting too early in the morning.

He's certainly a looker but, the way that questionnaire reads, it should be called: "Johnny Orsini: I Am The Bro-iest Bro In All of Broedom."

Seriously! We get it, Jonny, you're not gay. Nobody thought you were to begin with.

Yeah, all those gym-buff-twentysomething-stud-who-somehow-falls-for-the-shlumpy-middle-age-guy fantasy dream boy roles that turn up in every damn gay play are hardly ever played by gay actors.
"It's now rather very common to hear people say 'I'm rather offended by that'. As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more than a whine. It has no meaning, no purpose. It has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that'. Well, so f**king what?"--Stephen Fry

I'm surprised no one has commented about his lack of interest in show tunes. To what extent is that prevalent among Broadway people who usually work in plays? Curious thought.
