VIDEO: What Advice Did NPH Offer Armie Hammer Ahead of His Broadway Debut?
On last night's Jimmy Kimmel LIVE, guest Armie Hammer asked guest host Neil Patrick Harris for some advice before he makes his Broadway debut in Young Jean Lee's dark comedy, Straight White Men. Admitted the actor, "I need pointers. I've never done this before!"
With multiple Broadway roles under his belt, Tony winner NPH was more than happy to oblige, sharing, "the one piece of advice I would probably give is to be very careful and protective of your voice. I've done musicals before where you have to be careful of your voice, but a lot of people go and start shouting in a play not realizing that they need to shout almost as if they're singing... doing that eight times a week and getting intense, and suddenly two months later you're totally hoarse and have you to keep doing it and you can hurt your chords. So pay attention to your throat." Watch the video below!
