Audition Central: Hairspray JR.

Character Breakdown: Corny Collins

Corny Collins, the host of "The Corny Collins Show," is a Baltimore celebrity. Foremost, Corny is a charmer, so be sure to cast a young performer with great energy and who is unafraid of being in the center spotlight. Corny should be both an experienced singer and actor. Corny should be played by a white actor.
