Where Are They Now? Mr. Broadway Update: Jeremy Jordan

Back in October 2011, we highlighted an "up and coming" new talent, Jeremy Jordan as Mr. Broadway (HERE). He had already been in Rock of Ages and West Side Story, and was just finished headlining the regional productions of Disney's Newsies and Bonnie and Clyde. He's sure done a lot since then - on Broadway, TV and film. Both of his big TV series have Broadway connections - Supergirl starring Beautiful's Melissa Benoist, and Smash, which was pretty much Broadway on the small screen. On film, he starred in the film adaptation of The Last 5 Years with Tony-nominee Anna Kendrick, and most recently, the film version of the play American Son, in which he co-starred on Broadway. The film premieres on Netflix soon. But probably the biggest and best thing he's been up to is getting married to Ashley Spencer and starting his family with a brand new daughter, Clara. Congratulations, Jeremy and Ashley!
