Today in aca-amazing news: It’s Skylar Astin‘s birthday.
Astin, who currently stars on the sitcom Ground Floor, has a big music background. He first broke out as part of the original Broadway cast of the Tony-award winning musical Spring Awakening, as well as indie films such as Hamlet 2 — which, if you A.) Haven’t seen and B.) Have a twisted sense of humor, you should definitely check out. He followed that up by becoming a teen hearthrob as Jesse in Pitch Perfect (Great news: He’s returning for the sequel!) and a fun spot on Glee last year.
In honor of his 27th birthday, we highlighted some of his most memorable musical moments from a variety of genres and projects.
6. “Since U Been Gone,” Pitch Perfect
5. “Rock Me Sexy Jesus,” Hamlet 2
4. “Anonymous Sex,” Tales From the Bad Years
3. “Touch Me,” Spring Awakening
2. “Mr. Roboto/Counting Stars,” Glee
1. “Magic,” Pitch Perfect
FYI: Astin will likely next give us a buzzy music number when Pitch Perfect 2 hits theaters next May.
