Today is the birthday of the man who plays Oscar Delancey and Newsie Ike (get your broom for the the goons…). Brendon Stimson was born on September 28.

His hometown is Rochester, NY. His favorite food is Lasagna. His first role was Guard #2 in “The Scarlet Pimpernel.” All of this information was on the back of his Newsies trading card.

There hasn’t been a “Meet the Newsies–Oscar Delancey” edition yet, but we’re keeping our fingers crossed that there will be one soon. For now, we’ll settle for The AlphaNYC Interview with Brendon Stimson:

In addition to his roles as Oscar Delancey and newsie Ike, Brendon serves as the understudy for the role of Jack Kelly. His Jack Kelly Debut was July 2, 2012. Brendon also participated in a special concert featuring Broadway Understudies. Here’s the video ad featuring Brendon Stimson and Jeremy Jordan (the original Jack Kelly):

After earning his bachelor’s degree from Syracuse University, he landed a part in “West Side Story” on Broadway for 18 months, until the show’s close. His was a “swing” role, meaning he played five different members of the “Jets” gang in the show. Newsies is Brendon’s second Broadway credit.

In honor of Brendon’s birthday, check out the Brendon Stimson tag on Tumblr or follow him on Twitter.
