Four pours and seven beers ago.
If you would have told us that a story about one of our Founding Fathers getting shot to death would translate into the most popular Broadway musical in ages… we never would have believed you.
But luckily, Lin-Manuel Miranda trusted his instincts and blessed us with Hamilton: An American Musical – and now he's about to do it all again for the small screen!
That's right — Comedy Central announced on Friday that Lin will be helming an upcoming episode of Drunk History this season… and while no one else has been cast just yet, it'd be a national tragedy for them to not use Phillipa Soo, Renée Elise Goldsbery, and Leslie Odom, Jr. to some extent!

Interestingly enough, DH's first-ever televised episode featured Michael Cera as Alexander Hamilton, Jake Johnson as Aaron Burr, and Ashley Johnson as Eliza Schuyler Hamilton, so Lin's going to have his work cut out for him in order to teach us something new.
Although… he's already won a Grammy, a Peabody, and 11 Tonys for his first retelling of the deadly duel — so if anyone's up for the challenge, it's him!
