Have you ever imagined what a drunken voicemail from Lin-Manuel Miranda would sound like? No. Just me?! OK, well, we have thought about it over here at ET and luckily, Drunk History gives us a taste of what that would be like in a deleted scene from season four.
In the clip, the Hamilton creator brings his rap game to the Comedy Central series when he calls musical director Alex Lacamoire. “Lock up your horses and daughters, I’m getting f**ked up on the couch with [creator] Derek Waters,” Miranda raps in a bleep-heavy freestyle.
The deleted scene comes from “Hamilton,” during which Miranda drunkenly recounted the history of Alexander Hamilton for a full episode. In the related re-enactment scenes, Alia Shawkat portrayed Hamilton while Aubrey Plaza took on Aaron Burr. The decision to cast the two TV stars, Waters explained to ET ahead of the new season, was inspired by Miranda: “He did such a good job of mixing races in the musical, so I didn’t want to do exactly what he did. I wanted to do something inspired by that. I just thought, ‘Change the sexes.’”
A fan of the series (which actually told the story of the Hamilton-Burr duel in the premiere episode), Miranda reached out to Waters to express his appreciation. So it came as no surprise that when Drunk History decided to revisit Hamilton’s story, they had the Broadway star over for a few drinks. “The goal for all of these stories is: ‘Who do I know that knows the most about the subject?’ When you look at it like that Lin-Manuel is the perfect person.” Waters said, adding of the episode: “That one I’m very excited about.”
In addition to this deleted scene, there are more outtakes and extended drunk narrator moments on the home release of Drunk History: Season 4, which is available on DVD March 14.
