Why isn’t everyone talking about how in the beginning of the story Jack sings that in Santa Fe, “your friends are more like family - and they’s begging you to stay” and at the end of the story HIS FRIENDS ARE MORE LIKE FAMILY AND THEY’S BEGGING HIM TO STAY
•Believes his character Morris Delancey is actually a good guy deep down, even after saying things like “My skull busting arm could use a break" and beating up a crippled boy. (Aka Mike Faist has an unbelievable amount of faith in people)
•Informed everyone of the cookie cake before getting some himself.
•Have you seen the picture of him and Ben Platt cuddling?
•His friendship with Laura Dreyfuss. Too cute.
•Actually named his Newsie Mike.
•His hair is on point no matter what length
•He used to beat up on the rest of the Newsies cast, but they loved him anyway
•He wears a tiny tie!
•"You know how I feel!“
•He reads Albert Camus before the show
•Always plays the villain, but is the sweetest?!?!?
• His energy when performing King of New York. You can tell he loves it.
•Him and Thanye during King of New York. Yes.
•His friendship with Tommy Bracco. Too pure
•The boy can’t use Twitter for shit, and I live for it.
Once said his favorite fan moment was when someone asked him to marry them.
He is a tired little cinnamon roll with puffy eyes that need sleep
He wears New Balance shoes (But he also owns converse tap shoes)
Please add more! I love hearing about Mike’s adorkablness.
(If it’s in italics, it’s something my sister said)
ok but do yourself a favor and don’t think about badass, legend among the new york newsies, jack kelly sauntering down the manhattan streets one day, stumbling across this skinny, pitiful kid with his right leg twisted crookedly beyond repair and just instantly thinking without batting an eyelash, “yes, this one. this one’s mine.”
Headcanon that when Jack was in the refuge he would take punishments and attacks to protect the younger kids from the abuse ((And every day that Crutchie was in there was like the world was ending because he couldn't protect him))
