On Girls, when there was an open call for White Men Can't Jump: The Musical, we finally got to hear the pipes on Elijah, played by Book of Mormon star, Andrew Rannells. Singing, "Let Me Be Your Star" from the hit show Bombshell from the hit TV show Smash, Elijah shined and they asked him to stay for the monologue.
When the dance tryout portion got started, Elijah was holding his own, but things took a deep dive when they brought in the basketballs and he had to do all the same kicks, spins and jumps but while dribbling a basketball. While his audition definitely seemed to not be the slam-dunk we had all hoped it would be, an awkward pass to someone's tender face seemed to be the last nail in the basketball musical coffin. But when he got a call back from the producers asking him to come in again (minus any balls), things seemed on the up for Elijah.
