Man, the man is non-stop!

Fresh off the heels of winning the Tony for Best Lead Actor in A Musical, Leslie Odom Jr. got up and shot a music video for ‘Autumn Leaves’ for 12 hours. Talk about work ethic and dedication.

The new video, which premiered yesterday on Rolling Stone, shows that Leslie does, in fact, have the range. Trading in his regimental coat for a sleek suit as he croons (in that swoon-worthy voice!) the soulful tunes of ‘Autumn Leaves.’  The sultry video is shot beautifully by director Simon Reinert and stars Odom’s own wife Nicolette Robinson as his leading lady (Aren’t they just the most adorable couple on the planet?). Check out the video below and if you haven’t already buy your copy of Leslie Odom Jr.‘s self-titled album.
