If you have not been watching the latest season of Miracle Workers, well, have we got a surprise for you. The show stars Daniel Radcliffe, Steve Buscemi, and Geraldine Viswanathan. Each season goes through a different era, and this season is focused on the Oregon Trail.
Set in 1844, Ezekiel (Radcliffe) is an idealistic good preacher who must join forces with a dangerous outlaw (Steve Buscemi). So they set off on the Oregon Trail by wagon (of course). And, along the way, they meet ‘hipster’ pioneers and offer modern perspectives on subjects like toxic masculinity. While, yes, also matching the era by dying of dysentery and other Oregon trail-like events.
Ezekiel dons full-on assless chaps in the latest episode while dancing and voguing to a discotheque version of “She’ll Be Coming Around The Mountain.” Behold:
Yes, Radcliffe channeling Rocky Horror with a little of Lip Sync‘s Tom Holland “Umbrella” thrown in for good measure. We know Radcliffe can be daring, but this looks like he’s just having a blast on that stage.
It turns out Ezekiel has been hiding his alter ego, a fabulous British diva. In the clip, he chooses to embrace the diva within. Tossing his minister garb in favor of shimmering elbow-length gloves and a glorious cape. The reverend disappears into his alter, fully enveloping themselves in everything they are. Sensual, vivacious, and fun.
Just in case you are wondering who we can thank for this glorious display of Radcliffe sashaying away, look no further than writer Kelly Lynne D’Angelo. She eagerly shared on Twitter that this was for her pitch.
yes, this was my pitch.— Kelly Lynne D'Angelo ✨ (@kellylynnedang) August 4, 2021
