Well, I'd never done a shoot with fried chicken on set. But when Asmeret Ghebremichael and Michael James Scott showed up in the studio with a bucket of KFC to use in their promo shoot for Fingerlickin' Fierce, I figured I better just roll with it. After all these two--original cast members of The Book Of Mormon--are some of the funniest, sassiest, sweetest, dreamiest people I've had the pleasure to work with. If anyone could rock chicken as a prop, I knew they could. And seeing as their show, a one-night-only event at the Canal Room on May 14th is titled Fingerlickin' Fierce, what better time?
To say we had fun on this shoot is an understatement. Check out the pictures below and be sure to watch the amazing YouTube video (featuring none other than Audra McDonald, who appears to be desperate for a role in Fingerlickin' Fierce). Does it go without saying that you should come by the Canal Room on May 14th? I thought so.
And of course...the hilarious video.
