The Performers Star Cheyenne Jackson Can't Get Enough of Revenge, k.d. lang, Costa Rica & More
Cheyenne Jackson shares his picks in music, fashion and more.

Broadway stars know what’s hot in entertainment, fashion and pop culture, so decided it was high time to tap in to the after-hours obsessions of our favorite stage actors. Stage fave Cheyenne Jackson is currently rocking a loincloth as porn star Mandrew in The Performers, and offstage, Jackson relaxes with great TV shows, Patti Smith's awesome autobiography and thoughts of a vacation in Costa Rica. Read on for Jackson's obsessions.

TV SHOW: Revenge & More
Revenge (you had me at Madeleine Stowe); Homeland (Claire Danes, Damian Lewis and Mandy Patinkin...nuff said); The Walking Dead (zombies and love triangles; I'm in); and Face/Off (makeup, mayhem and mishegas).”

MOVIE: Stand By Me
Stand By Me was the first R-rated movie I ever saw, and I am the same age as all the boys. Melancholy, brilliantly acted and beautiful—and, of course, the ultimate barf-o-rama.”

SONG OR SINGER: k.d. lang & More
“k.d. lang (perfection); Sia (songs that she and I have written together that y'all haven't heard yet); George Michael and Freddie Mercury (all-time favorite male vocalists).”

“This play [by Robert Askins] was produced at Ensemble Studio Theatre and is hopefully coming to Broadway. It's funny, shocking and riveting."

BOOK: Giovanni's Room
“I loved Giovanni's Room by James Baldwin. A close second: Just Kids by Patti Smith."

ATHLETE: Serena and Venus Williams
"I do enjoy a good Williams sister tennis match."

APP: None
"As Tina Fey says, 'My favorite apps are the ones that come before the entree.'"

FASHION DESIGNER: Menswear stars
“Italo Zucchelli for Calvin Klein, Michael Bastian and Roberto Cavalli for making me some of the best tuxes I've ever worn."

BEAUTY PRODUCT: Drugstore staples
“Crest White Strips, Renu contact lens solution and a tube of ChapStick."

“None of my obsessions are random!"
