Comedian Billy Eichner is the latest addition to the celebrity-filled cast of NBC’s upcoming Hairspray Live!.
The Difficult People star signed on to play Rob Barker, a Baltimore TV newscaster who reports on Tracy Turnblad’s attempt to integrate The Corny Collins Show in the second act.
The latest musical being remade for live TV already boasts an incredibly impressive lineup of star performers, including Martin Short, Jennifer Hudson, Ariana Grande, Kristen Chenoweth and Rosie O’Donnell.
Harvey Fierstein will be reprising his role as Edna Turnblad, the part that won him a Tony for his portrayal in the Broadway production.
