Jeremy O. Harris Needs to be on Celebrity Big Brother 3 and Here’s Why

Our thoughts on why playwright Jeremy O. Harris needs to be on Big Brother, the hit CBS reality competition. Best known for Slave Play (and subsequently Zola and his appearance on season 2 of Emily in Paris), Jeremy O. Harris has become a household name for any theatre lover. What you may not know about him is his love of reality television. Recently O. Harris tweeted his “10 TV Shows to know me,” with Big Brother and Survivor both cracking the top 10 (great picks imo). After revealing this, he tweeted, “Listen @cbs I told @JeffProbst that unfortunately I could never hack it on Survivor…I would embarrass myself and the fandom… BUT I NEED TO BE ON BIG BROTHER. I could go the distance! I could be the Mike white of BB!” (For those who aren’t Survivor fans, Mike White is a well-known screenwriter and director (School of Rock, Nacho Libre, and White Lotus to name a few) who made it to the final 3 of Survivor: David vs. Goliath in 2018 and played amazingly.)
