News   Recent Sly Fox Star Picks Fave iTunes for Weekly Featured "Celebrity Playlist" Eric Stoltz — a recent Broadway star in the revival of the Larry Gelbart comedy Sly Fox — is among the "Celebrity Playlists" featured for this week on Apple's iTunes.

Stoltz, who played servant Simon Able to Richard Dreyfuss' miser Foxwell J.

The actor has previously appeared on the Broadway stage in Our Town, Two Shakespearean Actors and Three Sisters as well as an Off-Broadway turn in The Importance of Being Earnest.

On the stage and screen star's selected playlist are, as he puts it, "a mix of wildly popular songs" and "newer songs from up-and-coming artists." The 19 selections include David Bowie's "Rock 'n' Roll Suicide," The Who's "Won't Get Fooled Again," Rufus and Chaka Khan's "Tell Me Something Good," and Elvis Presley's "In the Ghetto" among other downloadable goodies by Talking Heads, Steely Dan, Burt Bacharach, Pearl Jam, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Joan Osborne and more.

The Broadway cast recordings of this year's big musicals Wicked and Avenue Q are currently among the top ten albums in the soundtrack genre.
