Oceans rise, empires fall, we’ve seen Taran Killam through it all. Saturday Night Live alum Killam will be making his Broadway debut in Lin-Manuel Miranda’s musical sensation Hamilton, where he’ll be playing the flamboyantly grouchy King George for an unspecified period of time. He’ll officially begin his reign on January 17, with the current king, Rory O’Malley, scheduled to play his final performance on January 15. The casting will be keeping Killam who was unexpectedly let go as a featured player from SNL this season busy in the upcoming months, as he also scored a Showtime pilot called Mating, which is about a “recently divorced guy forced to confront the modern hookup scene.” We can’t help but wonder what Jebidiah Atkinson would think.
