Brennin Hunt stole the spotlight in more ways than one with his portrayal of Roger Davis [1] in Fox's Rent Live [2]. While the actor didn't actually perform live for the majority of the show [3] due to an earlier foot injury, he still managed to blow audiences away with a few of his performances from the previously recorded footage during the show's dress rehearsal [4].

"Breaking my foot last night was not fun, but it's been great being back on set with everybody," Hunt said in a video on his Instagram ahead of the show. "I love these people so much. They've showered me with love and kindness, which is the essence of this musical, and I am just truly honored and blessed to be a part of this Rent family, and I hope you guys enjoy tonight."

While some of the cast included seasoned Broadway stars, Hunt is fairly new to the stage. The singer previously appeared on The X Factor's first season in 2011, and he made a guest appearance on Nashville in 2015. Despite his unfortunate injury ahead of Fox's Rent Live, we have a feeling we'll be seeing more of Hunt very soon!
