The Hotties of Hamilton: King George Edition
First up, is the very first King George III, Brian d'Arcy James, who played the mad royal in the off-Broadway production. He's a native to my home state, Illinois. He's starred in numerous Broadway and Off-Broadway productions. You may have also seen him in the movie Spotlight. He also played Shrek in Shrek the Musical, which you can see on Netflix!

|I am digging this outfit.|
|I love his hair.|
Here he is singing a song from Shrek.
Next up, is Jonathan Groff, the original Broadway King George, or as the cast calls him, King George the third the second. You probably recognize Jonathan Groff from Glee, HBO's Looking or The Normal Heart. Or, if you have kids, he's the voice of Kristoff in Frozen. If you are a theatre nerd, he was the original Broadway Melchior in Spring Awakening. Among all of his credits, I'm sure you've seen him in something!

|Look at that face!|
|I just can't even with that smile.|
|I can't resist a man with a beard.|
Nailing his big number at the Tony's
Finally, we have our newest King, Rory O'Malley, or King George the Third, the Fourth. Rory is an even newer Broadway star. He was Andrew's co-star in The Book of Mormon, playing the role of Elder McKinley. He was nominated for a Tony award for his performance. Rory also had a role in a play called 8, which is about the overturning of California's Proposition 8. He is a co-founder of a gay rights activism group called Broadway Impact. Hot, talented, and involved in charity work. What's not to love? Rory was also given the distinguished honor of taking over hosting duties for Lin-Manuel Miranda for the Ham4Ham shows.

|He looks amazing with a beard...though I may be biased.|
Singing one of my favorites at a benefit
Before I go, I'm going to leave you with two more videos purely for my own enjoyment.
The Schuyler Georges, my favorite Ham4Ham of all time.
Rory's coronation into the Order of the Garter
Well, that's all I've got for you for the King George Edition of The Hotties of Hamilton. Maybe someday, I'll update this with more King Georges. Until then, let me know who your favorite George is below!
