I guess this is why it's called "acting"

From a People Magazine (yes, I read it like it's the New England Journal of Medicine, Time or something equally as important) interview with Prison Break's Wentworth Miller.
Your character [Michael Scofield, a crusading structural engineer] is pretty daring. What's the boldest thing you've ever done?
In college I was part of a singing group, and we sang a benefit for the American Red Cross in Carnegie Hall. Stepping out on that stage, knowing the artists and musicians who performed there over the years, was intimidating as hell.

Intimidating, I'm sure. Bold? Well, let's see. Did he break from the ranks, stage-diving into the teeming mosh pit of fans of the Princeton Tigertones (yes, after reading this interview, I felt the need to check his bio on IMDB)? No. In the middle of the Tigertones rendition of Kiss da Girl--made famous by Disney's Sebastian--did he bust out in some Jay-Z? No. Was he out there all by himself on that great big historic stage? No!

Mr. Miller is a fine looking gentleman. And if Joan of Arcadia hadn't been cancelled--damn CBS and J.Lo Hewitt--he'd have been a hella Satan. But from now on, I'm going to have a little trouble suspending belief and seeing him as the tough guy when the boldest thing he's done is...uh...standing on a stage with 13 other guys and singing.

So, I guess that's why it's called acting...

Michael Scofield sang in a men's chorus group called the Tigertones? Oh, say it ain't so, yo!
