Turns Out the Lost Boys are Dreamboats

I am currently in the middle of watching NBC’s Peter Pan Live. I have to say, I’m pleasantly surprised with how much less awkward this is than the live production of The Sound of Music they did previously. For the first little while, Nana the dog was my favourite part of the show, but I just hit Neverland, and I made a discovery.

Guys, it turns out the Lost Boys are dreamboats.

Because of this, I was inspired to do some research on a few of the boys so you can check them out too! Here are some fun facts for you.

Jason GotayTwitter Handle:  @jasongotay

Twitter Bio: “have a nice day, and smile! it won’t mess up your hair.”

Fun Facts:

  • Has toured with Bring It On: The Musical (Bonus Fun Fact: He apparently starred opposite Taylor Lauderman in Bring It On – she played Wendy in Peter Pan Live).
  • Possibly has some songs on iTunes – or perhaps it is a different Jason Gotay? Not entirely sure – check it out here.
  • His fan site is here.
  • Was an alternate for Peter Parker in Spiderman! Turn Off the Dark.
  • Attended Camp Broadway as a child.
  • Dreams of costarring with his BFF in the musical version of Tangled (awww!)


Ryan Steele as Curly

Twitter Bio: “Ryan is my name. Dancing is my game.”

Fun Facts:

  • Born August 3, 1990 in Walled Lake, Michigan.
  • He is openly gay.
  • Has been dancing since he was 5 years old.
  • Originated the role of Specs in Newsies at the Paper Mill Playhouse in New Jersey. He was also the original dance captain for the musical.
  • Appeared as an ensemble member in TV series Smash.
  • Here is a fanpage for him.
  • He’s kind of an overachiever – his top shows he’d want to do are West Side Story, Newsies, and Peter Pan. He’s only 24 and he’s already crossed those off the list! I am excited to see what he will do next!

There you are! You’ve now been introduced to just a few more dreamy men – and from Broadway, no less. I have one final fun fact for you before I go: it turns out that Fox is developing a TV show about the Lost Boys. Hopefully their casting as as dreamy as this! Who’s your favourite? I think F is my boy.

I’ll leave you to it, fangirls! Yet another group of young men to obsess over – enjoy!
