Larry David Told Lin Manuel Miranda, Weird Al About Their Walk of Fame Stars
If you ask any slightly nerdy, comedy and musical loving goof who their three favorite celebrities are — what meeting of three minds would invariably set their own mind ablaze — you may just get the names seen in this photo: Larry David, Weird Al Yankovic, and that current master of the musical, Hamilton scribe and star Lin Manuel Miranda. The story behind the photo? Apparently Larry David was the one to inform Weird Al Yankovic and Lin Manuel Miranda that they would be receiving stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame this year.
Just as exciting — according to Lin Manuel Miranda the meeting took place on the set of Curb Your Enthusiasm?! Oh my gosh! Is Weird Al going to parody Hamilton!? At least one Twitter user seems to think so. Hey, we wouldn’t mind. It’s been quite a bit of time since his last album, Mandatory Fun, and the world needs more Weird Al! We got a little more Lin Manuel Miranda with Moana, but Weird is the only Al for me!
Weird Al also just released a box set containing all of his work to date which you can purchase here eventually. Do you have any thoughts on this? Will you be visiting these two stars’ stars? Do you have nothing but respect for your presidents, which could be any of these three men? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter at @WhatsTrending.
