Ben Cook Career

Cook performed in several productions as a child in Washington, D.C., including at Ford's Theatre and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. He made his Broadway debut at the age of eleven in Ragtime at the Neil Simon Theatre, understudying and performing the role of Edgar (The Little Boy). His next Broadway role was Tall Boy in Billy Elliot the Musical at the Imperial Theatre, and played the roles of Michael, then Billy in the North American National Tour of the production. His final tour performance as "Billy" was in Las Vegas, Nevada, on May 19, 2013.

From the age of 16, he toured for a year and a half in the role of Race and occasionally performed the role of Crutchie as the understudy in the first national tour of Newsies the Musical. In January 2016, after over 500 performances, Cook left that tour and joined the original Broadway cast of Tuck Everlasting. Previews began in March 2016, and the show closed the same May.

Cook joined the ensemble of the musical adaptation of the film Mean Girls. Its pre-Broadway tryout began in October 2017 at the National Theatre, in Washington D.C. The show premiered on Broadway in April 2018. He was set to appear in the 2020 Broadway revival of West Side Story as Riff, the leader of the Jets, but he left the production after being injured in a preview performance.

On television, Cook appeared as young Jack on 30 Rock, in the episode "Chain Reaction of Mental Anguish" (2010); and as Walt in the episode of the HBO series Veep titled "The Choice" (2014). He played Heather Dunbar's son in the episode "Chapter 27" of the Netflix series House of Cards (2013). On Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, he played Adam Turner in the episode "Great Expectations" (2017).

Cook reprised his role of Race in Newsies in the film adaptation of the musical, which received a limited release in February 2017 and later on Netflix. In 2018, he appeared in the HBO film Paterno.

He also appeared in the 2021 film adaptation of West Side Story as Mouthpiece, a member of the Jets.


Social media is left in hysterics by police appeal to track down man who 'looks like Grim Reaper', May 25, 2023
North Yorkshire police are looking for the ominous figure following a burglary in Acomb, York. But social media jokers have flocked to the post - saying officers need to be careful as they try to track down the spooky apparition. Others quickly chimed in - comparing him to Voldemort and supervillan Skeletor. One - John Candlish - laughed: 'If you do see him don't walk towards the light. Just wait for the ambulance and hope they will restart your heart.'

Killer who lured best friend to secluded spot where he was stabbed 23 times jailed for five years, March 27, 2023
Louis Hackett, 20, has been jailed for five years after Newcastle Crown Court heard how he lured pal Kieran Williams, 18, to a secluded spot where he was buried in a clandestine grave. The incident occurred at near the Northern Spire bridge in Sunderland, Tyne and Wear, last April. The 18-year-old's remains were found six weeks later, in June last year. His body was examined by a pathologist and he found he had suffered at least 20 stab wounds, including three to the front of his chest, two to his right torso, seven to his neck and a number of other wounds to his limbs. Today, the court heard how so far those behind Kieran's murder have 'got away with it' and a judge has said 'justice has not been done'.
