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?Hmm, didn't we learn on Jeopardy! once that Neil Patrick Harris also got his start in show biz playing Toto?
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.
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!
