Feed your Hamilton fix with this Central Park clip of Leslie Odom Jr. singing about pizza
The Tony-winning actor is currently starring on Apple TV+'s Central Park as Owen Tillerman, the energetic park manager of the titular New York City green space. In this exclusive clip from the eighth episode of the series, which premieres Friday, Owen sings a catchy tune titled "Imperfectly Perfect," comparing an imperfect pizza he made to love.
"Like this piece of pizza, we know love can be imperfectly imperfect," Owen sings. The song is written by the series primary songwriters Kate Anderson and Elyssa Samsel.
"It requires full commitment," Odom Jr. previously told EW of working on the show. "I get to be as wild and outrageous and ridiculous as I can possibly push myself to be right off the bat. And then they draw it and make it funny."
This episode, titled "Hot Oven," features Molly (Kristen Bell) introducing Brendan (Eugene Cordero) to her family. Meanwhile, Helen (Daveed Diggs) stumbles upon a new way to get the dog Shampagne out of her life. Meghan Trainor also features as a guest songwriter on the episode.
The animated series follows a lovable family that lives in the New York City landmark. There's park caretaker Owen (Leslie Odom Jr.); his journalist wife, Paige (Kathryn Hahn); and their preteen children, Cole (Tituss Burgess) and Molly (Kristen Bell). When wealthy heiress Bitsy (Stanley Tucci) comes up with a scheme to buy Central Park with help from her long-suffering assistant Helen (Daveed Diggs), the family must unite to save their beloved park. Narrator Birdie (Gad) presides over the proceedings with wry commentary, as well as advice for Owen and his family.
