Hairspray Live! Video: Harvey Fierstein's Cat Has a Really Naughty Name

Somebody in the cast is an unrepentant food thief

Malcolm Venable

Hanging out with the stars of Hairspray Live!would pretty much be a dream come true, given that the NBC musical is packed with mega-talents including Harvey Fierstein, Jennifer Hudson, Derek Hough and Kristin Chenoweth. Can you even imagine what it would be like to pass J-Hud in the hall in the morning or have lunch with Chenoweth? It's a fantasy so fabulous it deserves its own admission fee.

Hairspray Live! everything you need to know about NBC's musical

TVGuide.com spent some time with members of the cast and yes, it was as gleeful as you might expect. And luckily, this video takes away some of the guesswork about what a day with these phenoms would be like, since, as you'll see, they reveal some quirky traits as they answer some funny superlative questions.

We now know, for example, who's Most Likely to Make You Laugh During a Take -- or more accurately, that they seem to crack each other up equally. We know who's Most Likely to Steal Your Food, too. (Pro tip: stock up on groceries if Derek Hough comes to your crib.) The wildest surprise though, is finding out the hilariously inappropriate name Harvey Fierstein has for his cat; when we asked who's Most Likely to Become a Crazy Cat Lady? (no spoiler here!) the Broadway legend reveals that his feline friend has a moniker that would definitely prompt the pet to to change it -- if animals could do that sort of thing, of course.

Hairspray Live! airs Wednesday, Dec. 7 at 8/7c on NBC.
