| Filed under: TV NewsYoung HollywoodTony Awards

Iain Armitage

Go Iain!

You may recognize Iain Armitage from our coverage of the Tony Awards — and now we're so proud of him for landing the lead role on Big Bang Theory's spinoff, Young Sheldon!

Iain plays an adorable nine-year-old Sheldon Cooper growing up in East Texas, which according to CBS, isn't easy when you're a "once-in-a-generation mind capable of advanced mathematics."

Get a first look in the gallery (above)!!

You can catch him right after BBT this fall with a special one-time preview on September 25 and then every week starting November 2!

Most of Andy Cohen's guests tip-toe around how they truly feel about other celebs — Patti LuPone, however, does not give a fuck!

The Broadway legend stopped by Watch What Happens Live! on Tuesday and admitted she can't sit through the big screen adaptations of musicals she starred in on stage.

But that might be a good thing, because the diva is NOT easily impressed by Hollywood interpretations of those hit musicals!

That especially goes for Madonna's portrayal of LuPone's iconic role in Andrew Lloyd Weber's Evita, a performance the Tony Awards winner thought was "a piece of shit."

The musical, for which LuPone won a Tony, was adapted into a hit film in 1996. Madge won a Golden Globe for her performance, but Patti wouldn't be able to tell you why — as she called the Like a Virgin singer a "movie killer" who is "dead behind the eyes." Ouch!

She sneered:

Let's face it, prequels always suck. So we weren't too interested in the Big Bang Theory spinoff Sheldon.

That is, until we learned CBS's frontrunner to play the young Sheldon Cooper was none other than our favorite little Tony Awards red carpet correspondent, Iain Armitage!

The rising star will reportedly take over the role from Jim Parsons, who won FOUR Emmys playing the neurotic math genius.

We're also seeing that the network is looking at Zoe Perry to play Sheldon's mom! Since Zoe is the daughter of Laurie Metcalf, who plays Mary Cooper on the hit sitcom, it seems like a perfect fit to us!

But we're just so happy for Iain!

Of course, no matter how big he gets, he'll always be our man at the Tonys! See some of his classic red carpet celebrity interviews (below)!

Good for her!!!

Broadway legend and performing artist Jennifer Holliday has officially canceled her scheduled performance at Donald Trump's inauguration next Friday, writing an open letter to her LGBT fans and calling her decision to perform a "lapse of judgment."

The singer — who has won Tony Awards and Grammys — came under fire on Friday when she was announced as the performer of a concert set as part of The Donald's swearing-in activities in Washington, D.C.

But the woman, long considered an ally to LGBT fans of hers, reconsidered the announcement after seeing the pushback from those who have supported her for so long!

Holliday wrote a long, heartfelt apology letter that was published this morning in The Wrap, and you can see it in full (below):

James Corden Has An Epic Broadway Riff-Off With Neil Patrick Harris — Causing One Of Them To Split Their Pants!

| Filed under: TV NewsBroadway BabiesNeil Patrick HarrisTony AwardsLate Night TVJames Corden

Not too many can keep up with James Corden in the Broadway department — but if anyone can give him a run for his money, it's fellow Tonys host Neil Patrick Harris.

On Monday, the Series of Unfortunate Events star stopped by the Late Late Show where he bullied the host into facing off against him in an epic show tunes riff-off!

After NPH mocked Corden for winning a Tony for a non-singing role, the British late night host had no choice but to battle the Broadway veteran in a high stakes (and high note) competition!

Backed by the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Corden kicked off singing Sit Down You're Rockin' the Boat from Guys and Dolls, to which Harris responded back with Everything's Coming Up Roses from Gypsy.

In between hurling intimidating trash talk at one another, Corden and Harris then belted out tunes from Company, Les Miserables, and a particularly sexy number from Chicago.

But when the time came for the pair to duet on My Shot from Hamilton, Harris' riff-off turned into a RIP off. When they returned from commercial break, the How I Met Your Mother alum confessed:
