Barrett Foa Social Media Reporter for the Tony Awards



Foa is reprising the social media reporter job he first took on in 2013, but he and CBS want viewers to be more involved this year with a new interactive element:

“If you have a Tony Awards dare for me, tweet it out and I’ll try and get it done,” Foa told Mashable ahead of Monday afternoon’s announcement. The wackier, the more fun, the better. There’s something so quirky and fun and nerdy about the Tony Awards. … We’re dorks being silly up there.”

Barrett Foa Takes a Trip to Streisand’s Basement

LL Cool J and Chris O’Donnell may be the marquee-name stars of CBS’ hit drama “NCIS: LA,” but there are plenty of viewers who have tuned in weekly for the past five seasons just for a glimpse of handsome surfer/tech dude Eric Beale — or more accurately, his portrayer, Barrett Foa. But only some of them know that the 36-year-old heartthrob spent his first decade working almost exclusively on the New York stage, including the Broadway productions of the musicals “Mamma Mia!” and “Avenue Q.”

Now, Foa is finally returning to the Big Apple’s boards to star in Jonathan Tolins’ acclaimed solo piece “Buyer & Cellar” at downtown’s Barrow Street Theatre. In the piece, Foa plays a variety of characters, primarily Alex More, an out-of-work actor who goes to work for Barbra Streisand in the stores she created below her vast Malibu estate — as well as La Streisand herself!
