Clay Aiken will yet again be gracing the Great White Way for a second run in Spamalot! Clay as Sir Robin (and various other roles) is an absolutely must see! I traveled almost 3,000 miles to see Clay in his first run and would LOVE to get back again! I'm not holding my breath, but if I actually win the Write Clay Aiken's Playbill Biography contest, I'll figure out a way to GET THERE!!
Spamalot is just proof positive that Clay is an extremely diverse and multi-talented singer, actor, comedian and just all around performer. Entertainers with his versatility do not come along often and I expect we will be seeing Clay expand his resume in the coming years.
Clay could easily star in a feature length film. I would LOVE to see him play a villain. I know that he could reach down and pull up those emotions (heck, maybe Clay will just think about all the people who have lied about him over the years - it would make for an Academy Award winning performance).
Clay has always said that he wanted to have his own talk show. Clay has a way about him, a natural ease (this comes from being who he is - you get what you see, period end of story). He is funny, warm, charming and would make an amazing talk show host!
How about a starring role on a TV Sitcom? Clay certainly entertained us during his 2007 Summer Tour with a TV Medley to end them all (I've seen one other TV Medley and it pales in comparison to Clay's).
He could also be an advocate for the rights of others. Clay has always stood up for those who have no voice - especially children. The man has the most amazing heart. Whether it's in his own backyard in Raleigh or traveling to Somalia, Clay is a celebrity who uses his time in front of the cameras to educate and help
Whatever Clay Aiken chooses to do, he will continue to carry himself with grace and dignity. I Heart Him and am so excited to be a part of this amazing journey!
