Ben Platt's Performance on The Politician Is Making Fans a Blubbering Mess

Netflix's The Politician premiered on Sept. 27, and I haven't been able to stop thinking about Ben Platt's incredible performance ever since. While the Ryan Murphy comedy has been met with mixed reviews, one thing we can all agree on is how insanely talented Platt is as the show's leading man, Payton Hobart. He's basically the perfect blend of Glee's obnoxiously ambitious Rachel Berry and Platt's anxiety-ridden title character from Dear Evan Hansen.

In addition to showing off his acting chops, the talented 25-year-old has quite a few musical numbers in the first season (do yourself a favor and watch his performance of "River" ASAP!). Yep, Murphy really knew the way to Ben Platt fans' hearts. See some of the funniest reactions to Platt's performance on the show ahead.
