Theater stars know what’s hot in entertainment, fashion and pop culture, so Broadway.com decided it was high time to tap in to the after-hours obsessions of our favorite stage actors. Justin Matthew Sargent is currently bringing down the house in Broadway's Rock of Ages as Drew, a busboy at the Bourbon Room who dreams of becoming a rock star. When he's not rocking out to Twisted Sister at the Helen Hayes Theatre, Sargent can be found watching Game of Thrones, listening to rock musicals and reading Life of Pi. Read on below for this talented star's obsessions!

“Best show on TV, period. Also American Horror Story, Walking Dead, Game of Thrones...you know, the light and fluffy stuff.”
