The first trailer for the upcoming movie musical, based on the Broadway show of the same name, was released earlier this week.
Ben‘s participation in the movie has been criticized because he was 27 while filming the movie, in which he’s playing a 16-year-old high school student. He previously played the role on Broadway and won a Tony, an Emmy, and a Grammy for his work. Now he’s going for that Oscar gold by being the first to complete the EGOT by playing one role.
Some people think that Ben is wearing a wig to make him appear younger in the movie, but he just responded to the rumors.

“I’m [very] flattered that [people] think my locks are a wig and I hate to burst bubbles but sadly those are my own jew curls,” Ben tweeted.
The Dear Evan Hansen movie will be released in theaters on September 24.
