Louisiana’s own Harry Connick Jr. attended the Macy’s Day Parade in character as Daddy Warbucks in NBC’s live musical production of “Annie,” slated for December.
Vanity Fair featured Connick Jr.’s transformation into rich man Oliver “Daddy” Warbucks, who allows orphan Annie to live with him in an effort to promote his image.
According to NBC, “Annie Live!” features Academy Award-nominated actress Taraji P. Henson as the musical’s infamous queen of mean, Miss Hannigan.
Henson will play opposite Celina Smith in the titular role of Annie.
The holiday musical event also features Tituss Burgess as Rooster Hannigan, Jane Krakowski as Lily St. Regis and Nicole Scherzinger as Grace.
As for whether or not he will actually shave his head for the live event, Connick Jr. told Vanity Fair he still hasn’t made up his mind.
The musical will air on NBC on Dec. 2 at 7 p.m.
