There’s a nice article in the Toronto Star blogs today:
Let’s see, since he finished in fourth place on Idol’s Season 7, he has released a debut album, is planning a tour in the fall, got married and got to sing on a soap opera.
On July 29 and 30, Jason will be seen on The Bold and the Beautiful performing his song “Love Uncompromised.”
“I’m really excited I got to sing that one,” he said. “It’s probably one of the most romantic songs on the album. It reminds me of a good old-fashioned love song.”
Jason also got about six lines of dialogue, maybe more, in his scenes with Hope (Kim Matula), Oliver (Zack Conroy) and Aggie (Sarah Joy Brown).
Head over here for the rest of the interview, which includes more nifty tidbits. (Thanks for the find, ohiocastrofan!)
Yesterday there was a cool mention in a very interesting blog that is well worth a look for itself, “The Boogie Man Is My Friend…”, written by a “40-something female police officer and mother working in a “big city” in the west.” (Wheels is the rookie she’s been training.):
So I decided to give Wheels a break from 50 Cent, Dr. Dre, and Bone Thugs. […] Now….time to see how he operated in a different realm.
Jason Castro. His album is good for the soul. On another note, Hallelujah has to be one of the best songs ever written by Leonard Cohen. And Castro’s version is amazing.
Wheels was so excited when he heard the music, you would have thought I goosed him in the britches.
And lastly (at least for the nonce), “Let’s Just Fall in Love Again” has made the top 5 of Norway’s Hit 40 for the 11th week in a row–which includes 2 weeks at #3, 3 weeks at #2 (where he’s sitting now), and 5 weeks at #1. US radio stations, get on the ball!
