>> it really is. it's nothing bad. it's all good. i'm keeping it good and clean.
>> who are the rest of your castmates?
>> they're just wonderful people. i have a wonderful girl who does lots and lots of just impersonations of different people. her name is kristen. then i have dylan who plays opposite me who is incredible. mind you, i just met these people like three, four days ago. i don't know their last names. i just met them. and then -- it's great. that's what i like about it. doing broadway , i was asked to do "chicago." they want a long extended period and i'm too busy with "life with la toya " so this is perfect because tom degraw who is the producer of the show said you can do it as long or as short as you want. you want to do a day or two or a week.

>> wow. when you hear that, that michael would have been 55, what kind of goes through you.
>> time flies, first of all. that's number one. i will never picture him being 55. it's simply amazing. i just wish that at 55 he was right here sitting with us. that would be nice.
