“The Book of Mormon” alum Rory O’Malley will join the cast of “Hamilton” next month, taking over the role of King George from “Looking” star Jonathan Groff.

Groff, who originated the role on Broadway, is departing the show to film a new David Fincher’s drama series for Netflix. His final performance will be April 9.

O’Malley will begin his reign in “Hamilton” on April 11.

The Tony-nominated actor was scheduled to appear on Broadway this season in “Nerds,” which was postponed last month after an investor dropped out.

“Hamilton” tells the story of America’s founding father Alexander Hamilton, and features a book and hip-hop score from Tony-winner Lin-Manuel Miranda. For more information and tickets, visit
