    So glad he’s getting more roles! Now if only we could find one that would let him sing- for any non-Broadway fans, check out clips of him in the Bridges of Madison County musical (sounds corny, but gorgeous music).

    He also is an amazing singer! He is also currently performing as billy bigelow in carousel at lyric opera in chicago!

    He has an amazing voice. He is currently starring in carousel as billy bigelow at lyric opera in chicago. As much as I miss him on the good wife, I realize that was small potatoes compared to his true broadway talent. I just love him and I think we will be seeing lots more of him!

    Ok. I am flying to Chicago to see Billy, watched him as Alex on Bloodline, and will watch him as Dr. Cooper; but Johnny Elfman needs to come back.
