Wizard World returns to Chicago this weekend!.Of course, I'll be back "On the Beat" meeting and interviewing celebrities and creators. One of my favorites is actor-musician Thomas Ian Nicholas.
Nicholas starred in Rookie of the Year, a role which forever endeared him to fans of the Chicago Cubs. Nicholas is also a big baseball fan, which must have made making the movie as a kid extra fun. Nicholas has made many appearances at Wrigley Field, tossing the first pitch,singing during the seventh inning stretch and joining the broadcast.
He definitely was one of the best singers to copy Harry Caray, but that's not a shock considering he has his own band. The TIN band has performed all over and is quite good.
I had the pleasure of interviewing about all of this at Wizard World a few years back. That interview can be found at On the Beat With Thomas Ian Nicholas.Go to WizardWorld.com for news and schedules for events all year. Check here for my recurring coverage.
