Little Miss Sunshine's Wesley Taylor Is Wild About Norbert Leo Butz, Tales of the City & More
Wesley Taylor
Wesley Taylor shares his obsessions with Jimmy Fallon, 'The Glass Menagerie' and more.

Theater stars know what’s hot in entertainment, fashion and pop culture, and loves to tap in to the after-hours obsessions of our favorite stage actors. This week, we're getting movie, music and iPhone app advice from Little Miss Sunshine star Wesley Taylor, who plays Joshua Rose, a flamboyant flirt whose big moment takes place in the men's room at a rest stop. The Broadway and Smash alum gives us a peek at his DVR (he's a card-carrying TV junkie), his bookshelf (Tales of the City and Bossy Pants, anyone?), his iPod (Norbert Leo Butz, all the way!) and more.

“Here we go...I'm a television junkie. I think Breaking Bad was the best show on TV. I'm obsessed with The Walking Dead and Homeland. Veep makes me laugh so hard. I watch re-runs of 30 Rock and Family Guy whenever they're on. Scandal is a guilty pleasure. I still miss Six Feet Under, Friday Night Lights, Damages and Dexter (the good years). The Comeback and Extras helped shape my sense of humor. And don't get me started on Louie. That show has no rules, which I love, and Louis C.K. is a god to me.”

American Beauty changed my life. The Graduate is perfect. I know every line to Shakespeare in Love.”

SONG OR SINGER: Norbert Leo Butz
“He's who I tried to sound like growing up. He was my template.”

“Currently running? Play: The Glass Menagerie. Musical: Pippin.

“OMG you guys, I'm OBSESSED with The Bible. You HAVE to read it/accept Jesus as your Lord and savior (...kidding). I love the Tales of the City series, I read all of David Sedaris and Chelsea Handler and c'mon, Tina Fey's Bossy Pants is brilliant. But that's all silly fun. One book that helped me get through a really dark time was The Book of Joe by Jonathan Tropper. Highly recommended.”

ATHLETE: David Beckham
“(I'm gay.)”

APP: PicStitch
“Logan Rowland (who plays Dwayne in our show) is 15 years old. When he was 12 we did The Addams Family together. I took a photo to document the three-year gap and Logan introduced me to PicStitch. These kids and their apps!”

CELEBRITY: Jimmy Fallon
“...No, Ellen! No, Conan!”

“My scene partner in Little Miss Sunshine. I'm obsessed with him. He's one of the funniest people I've ever worked with/known.”
