Jeremy Jordan Talks Drinking With Anna Kendrick & Neverland

first_img View Comments “She completely drank me under the table,” Jordan recalls in a recent interview with the New York Post. “Anna ordered a Scotch. I said, ‘I’ll have a rum and Coke,’ and she said, ‘What are you? A 19-year-old college girl? Have a real drink!’” This was after the beer they had on the first round. Jordan also commented on Finding Neverland, which he starred in last year at the American Repertory Theater in Massachusetts. For the show’s upcoming Broadway bow, Matthew Morrison will instead take on the role of J.M. Barrie, reprising his performance from an earlier developmental lab. “I was pretty heartbroken that I didn’t move on with it,” Jordan admits, “But people have their reasons…and life goes on.” Still, Jordan promises a return to the stage, saying, “Theater is more gratifying to me than anything else. It’s one fleeting moment.” In the meantime, you can catch Jordan (and Kendrick) on screen in The Last Five Years in theaters and on demand beginning February 13. Tony nominee and Audience Choice Award winner Jeremy Jordan and movie musical darling Anna Kendrick make a steamy on-screen couple in the film adaptation of The Last Five Years. So how did the two get so close before singing their faces off and filming those car hookup scenes? They drank the hard stuff. Well at least Kendrick did.last_img
