The entire cast (minus the fabulous Caroyln Castiglia, who was capturing this joyous moment on her camera) of All the Way, For the Children, my big "Celine Dion" extravaganza at Mo Pitkin's, on January 28, 2007. This photo was taken backstage right after the show. (No, I don't normally wear eyeliner.) Front row (from L. to R.): Laura Mannino; Katina Corrao; Shawn Hollenbach; Alana Harrison (love that smile!); back row (L. to R.): Adira Amram (gettin' down!); Paul Case (looking very handsome and solemn, like an extra on Law and Order), me, and Eric Poindexter.

I know I am way behind the curve on this one, but I just finished watching Episode 2 of Season 1 of the CBC smash-hit series Being Erica, which is available for streaming on the CBC website here. (The concept for the series was recently sold to ABC and is expected to be remade for the American market.)
This particular episode ends with Erica saying (in voice-over): "Every new day brings with it new choices and a whole new world of possibilities." And then, as if to illustrate the point, the credits roll, revealing that the character of Ken (known in the parlance of TV casting as an "Under 5" part because he had fewer than 5 lines in the episode) was played by an actor named "Aubrey Graham."
Never heard of him? Well perhaps you know him as his Hip-Hop alter ago--Drake.
Hi, I'm Aubrey Graham. My album went to Number 1 on the Billboard charts last year. Also, I had an "Under 5" on "Being Erica" the year before that, which I got paid about $400 for.
I'm not... even... KIDDING!
Click here and fast forward to 23:22; then, when you're done with that, go to 24:38.
P.S. I am now officially obsessed with this show.
