Watching Law and Order with my niece, Alicia, who is 18 years younger than me:
"See the black guy? That's Jesse Martin. He was in Rent on Broadway and in the movie too." I said
"Yea. He was on The Ellen Show and Ellen told him she had no idea that he was a Broadway actor. He said that's a common mistake that people used to make about Jerry Orbach. Did you know that Jerry Orbach was a big Broadway actor when he was younger? As a matter of fact, he originated the role of "Billy Flynn" in Chicago. That's the part Richard Gere played in the movie."
"You know who Jerry Orbach is, don't you?" I asked.
"Sure," she replied, "He put baby in a corner."
