Worst flubbed line: I blanked out in the middle of "I Can Hear The Bells" once; I literally just went to la la land and when I came back I heard myself singing but could not remember where, so I started making things up that rhymed with the last thing I said which I thought was I said.....bla bla bla....smells........
Who have you played on "Law & Order"? Which edition? HAHAHAHAHA. I have been in for them like six times, all different editions and they never hire me. I mean I'm not sure what that says about me, but that question made me laugh.
