Jerry O’Connell… shantay, you stay!
The 43-year-old actor got up in the gig with the help of Ginger MinJ at RuPaul’s DragCon in Los Angeles this weekend.
His drag alter ego’s name? Anya Mann!
We love this pic of O’Connell in a breastplate with no shirt on. With breasts like those, it looks like he is coming for Michelle Visage’s spot on the judge’s panel!
O’Connell opened up about growing up in New York City surrounded by drag. “I grew up on 17th Street in Chelsea, just a few blocks from a restaurant called Florent,” he recalled. “For those who don’t remember, [it] was one of the first drag restaurants, really. It’s so funny, I grew up really surrounded by drag.”
A fan of the show, O’Connell could send an audition tape in for the next season of RuPaul’s Drag Race she looks so good.
Following the success of the world’s largest drag culture convention, which has tripled its total attendance since debuting in 2015, RuPaul announced the inaugural “RuPaul’s DragCon NYC” during his keynote address Sunday afternoon. The event will be held on September 30th to October 1st, 2017 in New York City.
The Los Angeles RuPaul’s DragCon will return for its fourth year in the spring of 2018. Tickets for DragCon in New York City will be available May 12, 2017.
