Sutton Foster and Christian Borle have a few things in common: each has two Tony statues, Foster for Thoroughly Modern Millie and Anything Goes, Borle for Peter and the Starcatcher and Something Rotten!; each has starred on a television series, Foster currently in TVLand’s Younger and Borle on the now defunct Smash on NBC; the two are huge fans of Gilmore Girls.

The two binged the show together when they were married. (Foster is now re-married to Ted Griffin; Borle is unmarried.) When Foster received a call from Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino about appearing in the show’s Netflix reboot—streaming November 25—Foster knew she wanted Borle as her co-star.

While on set in March, talked to the stage veterans about working across mediums. Theatre fans will be happy to know that for Foster, the theatre “is always going to be my home base, my passion.”
