It's good to be a young actor performing on an multiple award-winning Broadway musical. The platform that has been provided for those talents by Lin-Manuel Miranda and his Hamilton production have been quite beneficial. In addition to Lin-Manuel, Daveed Diggs and Renee Elise Goldsberry have all booked quality jobs since. You also have to take a look at Anthony Ramos.

The Puerto Rican actor-singer-songwriter, who played both John Laurens and Philip Hamilton in the Hamilton production, has scored another great opportunity in his short career by being selected to play in Spike Lee's new Netflix Series as reported by The Source.

The 24-year-old who changed from a promising baseball career while at New Utrecht High School to pursue music and acting in the American Musical and Dramatic Academy's Musical Theater program, would see it lead to the opportunity of a lifetime when Lin-Manuel chose him to perform in his musical.

Miranda, who had previously struck gold with "In The Heights," would exceed expectations with "Hamilton." Ramos, who played in Miranda's "Heights" as well, would attract many eyes and two in particular viewed Ramos duel performances as worthy of being necessary to acquire for his new series. Those eyes belong to the bespectacled Spike Lee as seen in Entertainment Weekly.

Lee chose Ramos to play a role that he once played in his series "She's Gotta Have It." This Netflix series will be an expanded remake of his 1986 film of the same name which centers around the character of Nora Darling, an artist who splits time between three lovers. Anthony gets to play Mars Blackmon, originally portrayed by Spike Lee, who will direct the ten episodes and will be executive produced by Spike's wife, Tonya Lewis Lee as reported in AM NY.

Ramos' talent goes beyond the performing stage. His mind originated the roles of Laurens and Hamilton and in a 2016 short musical by Miranda he created the role of Justin Laboy. It makes sense that Ramos and Lee would have a meeting of the minds.
