The Politician’s Ben Platt & Julia Schlaepfer Serve Milk & Warm Cookies at Harvard
The Politician was Ryan Murphy’s latest attempt at political satire and comedy. The show revolves around one Payton Hobart (Ben Platt) wholly committed to being the president of the United States. Though, in the first season, we just see him in his school election. While the show is getting a lot of mixed reviews, the cast of The Politician is busy promoting their show in whatever way possible. Recently, Ben Platt and his on-screen girlfriend Alice (Julia Schlaepfer) were hanging around at Harvard. And yes, they were serving some warm cookies and milk to the students passing by.
Ben Platt and Julia Schlaepfer Hanging Out At Harvard Casually
Schlaepfer captioned it:
Mom & Dad here to serve you warm cookies and milk all day long. Thank you for having us Harvard! 😛🍪💕
In fact, it makes sense for Ben Platt and Julia Schlaepfer to choose this particular Ivy League university. Both characters get accepted into it in the show.
The Politician Season 2 Happening?
In season 1, Platt’s character Payton ends up going to NYU. The finale ended up in a time jump with a premise that definitely requires a season 2. There’s already confirmation that The Politician season 2 is happening. And it won’t be showing teenagers in high school anymore. Everyone has grown up. Payton Hobart is back on his path in becoming the president of the United States with the help of his old pals James (Theo Germaine) and McAfee (Laura Dreyfuss), Alice (Julia Schlaepfer) and even Skye (Rahne Jones) and Astrid (Lucy Boynton).
The cast will also feature Judith Light as Dede Standish and Bette Midler as Hadassah Gold in The Politician season 2.
