This week's episode features Casey Likes, who recently made his Broadway debut in Almost Famous The Musical as 'William Miller'!

Casey talked about his experience in Almost Famous, the Jimmy Awards, and more!

"It's a magical feeling inside the Jacobs," Casey said of Almost Famous. "I feel like we've found a way to make this Broadway theatre into a home for a lot of people that get the message of the show. We have had some extremely meaningful people from music and the entertainment world come and just feel like the show welcomes them. Then also, the people who work there at the Jacobs feel welcome as well, and that's largely in part due to the environment that our creative team, and specifically Cameron [Crowe] establishes."

Casey will next be seen as 'Gene Simmons' in the Neil Bogart biopic Spinning Goldthat will be released on March 31, 2023 and as 'Richie Shepard,' the leading role in MGM's feature Dark Harvest.
