Harvard University's famed Hasty Pudding theater troupe has named actor and musician Ben Platt 2020's Man of the Year.

The 26-year-old Platt is the youngest recipient in the 54-year history of the award.

The award is handed out annually by the acting troupe, which dates to the late 18th century.

Platt will receive his pudding pot at a celebratory roast on Friday.

Platt won a Tony in 2017 for “Dear Evan Hansen," while the cast as a whole earned a Grammy and a Daytime Emmy.

Platt is also known for his role as Benji Applebaum in the films “Pitch Perfect" and “Pitch Perfect 2."
