American Idol Extra: American Idol Taylor Hicks to Star in Grease on Broadway

NICE little write-up from US Magazine, which reads:

American Idol season five winner Taylor Hicks has found himself a new role: “Teen Angel” on Broadway's Grease.

Hicks, 31, will join the cast on June 6.

“I am incredibly excited to be a part of one of my favorite musicals,” Hicks said in a press release. “The Soul Patrol’s gonna invade Broadway!”

(Soul Patrol was his fans' nickname for Hicks during the show. See what other Idols are up to.)

The Birmingham, Alabama native's single "Do I Make You Proud" debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and was certified gold shortly after his Idol win. His 2006 album "Taylor Hicks" went platinum and debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 charts.

Hicks isn't the only Hollywood star to hit the Great White Way. Katie Holmes will make her debut in Arthur Miller's "All My Sons" and Nicole Richie was offered a lead role in Chicago.

Fantastic photo from the Kentucky Derby pre-party. He looked AMAZING -- he always looks amazing, who am I kidding.

Thanks for the grab and putting up the blurb.
