One actor had the internet shook when leaked footage of his package surfaced online.
On May 9, an unidentified patron who attended “Take Me Out,” a Broadway show starring former Grey’s Anatomy actor Jesse Williams, secretly recorded a nude shower scene with the well-endowed thespian and other actors. The playgoer also took photos of Jesse while he was on stage, delivering more than his lines. The video quickly went viral. Reactions from Black Twitter ranged from overtly sexual to hilarious.

One Twitter user joked that all hell would break loose if she bought a ticket for “Take Me Out” and Jesse wasn’t performing that night.

Although folks on the internet got their jollies from Jesse’s enormous package, the patron’s cellphone wasn’t allowed per 2nd Stage’s policy.
“Out of respect and support for our actors and in order to create a phone-free space, Second Stage will be working with Yondr for all performances of ‘Take Me Out.’ Upon arrival at the Hayes, all phones are placed in Yondr cases by our staff and will be unlocked at the end of the show. Guests maintain possession of their devices at all times.”
Jesse was recently nominated for a Tony Award for “Best Performance By An Actor In A Featured Play.”
He announced the news on his Instagram account.
“No words, just gratitude. A student in a sea of teachers 🌊”

“Take Me Out’s” premise revolves around a professional baseball player who comes out of the closet.
2nd Stage’s site wrote, “In this Tony Award®-winning Best Play, playwright Richard Greenberg celebrates the personal and professional intricacies of America’s favorite pastime. When Darren Lemming, the star center fielder for the Empires, comes out of the closet, the reception off the field reveals a barrage of long-held unspoken prejudices. Facing some hostile teammates and fraught friendships, Darren is forced to contend with the challenges of being a gay person of color within the confines of a classic American institution. As the Empires struggle to rally toward a championship season, the players and their fans begin to question tradition, their loyalties, and the price of victory.”
The unidentified play patron’s meaty blessing to the masses doesn’t make the 40-year-old actor blush or feel embarrassed.
Ironically the footage dropped on the day of the latest episode of BRAVO network’s Watch What Happens Live. Jesse with his fellow castmates discussed the nudity in “Take Me Out” with host Andy Cohen.
Andy asked the crew if they pre-pumped for their performances. They appeared to dance around the question.

When the host asked the men about the audience’s reaction to the nude scenes, Jesse responded, “A non-reaction is a really interesting reaction. It creates insecurities. I don’t like any of it [the reactions].”
Jesse also expounded on parading his righteous body and package onstage.
“I won’t be scared of anything after this,” he said casually. “It’s a body. Once you see it, you realize—it’s a body.”
And what a body it is, sir.
