Don’t Tell Paul Giamatti That John Adams Isn’t in Hamilton — Oh Wait, Seth Meyers Just Did

By

Shhh! Paul Giamatti hasn't seen Hamilton yet, and he's looking forward to seeing how the hit musical portrays John Adams, whom he won an Emmy and a Golden Globe for playing in the HBO mini-series of the same name. So ... should anyone warn him that John Adams isn't in Hamilton at all, except for one brief part where Alexander Hamilton tells him to "sit down, John, you fat motherf*cker!" (A longer version with more insults was cut for time.) What's that? Seth Meyers just did that? Uh-oh. Luckily, Giamatti was fine with it, admitting that John Adams "was not a very good president." Cool, Seth Meyers, yeah, no problem. Just maybe ask next time.
