Oz in Jeopardy!

The catching up continues! On the May 13 game — the first semifinal match of this year's College Tournament — Oz appeared in an unusual place: The contestant interviews. In the middle was Daniel, a junior from Northwestern, and here's what he told Alex:

ALEX: This young man loves musical theater, but he discovered something interesting in late high school years. And what was that?
DANIEL: Well, I love musicals, like you said, I love being in them. But I'm what's known in the business as a triple threat. Can't sing, can't act, can't dance.
ALEX: Aha!
DANIEL: So, some roles I was cast in, in my school years, include Toto the dog in The Wizard of Oz, and the Magic Carpet in Disney's Aladdin.
ALEX: Pretty good credits.
DANIEL: Yeah, I mean...I knocked those roles right out of the ball park.
ALEX: Okay, good for you!
Hmm, didn't we learn on Jeopardy! once that Neil Patrick Harris also got his start in show biz playing Toto?
