James Monroe Iglehart won his first Tony and Drama Desk Awards for his role of the Genie is Disney’s Aladdin. Considering Iglehart had only appeared on Broadway in Memphis and The 25th Annual Putnam Spelling Bee, Aladdin is now permanently etched in stone, well gold, as a defining career role for the wildly talented singer. Iglehart also performs with the hip hop improv groupl Freestyle Love Supreme (FLS), who can be currently seen on the television channel Pivot. After you hear our interview and Iglehart freestyling, you’ll know why Broadyway is thrilled to claim and celebrate Iglehart.

iJosh Charles’s longest day job was that of Will Gardner on The Good Wife, and he’s been nominated for an Emmy for Best Supporting Actor for his role. Even though his character was brutally murdered this past season, Josh hasn’t been sitting shiva long. He’s appearing in several upcoming films and will direct future episodes of The Good Wife.

He had to audition twice for two different directors for his role in Dead Poets Society, revealing how grueling acting, especially as a kid, can be. Still, his talent and determination paid off, as his earliest roles were alongside legends, like the late Robin Williams (Dead Poets Society) and for John Waters (Hairspray).

From the get go, Josh was incredibly passionate about acting and snatched up his first manager as a kid at the sleep away camp Stagedoor Manor. He’d already performed stand up in Baltimore, where he grew up. I’m relieved Ted Talks didn’t exist back in the 80’s, as I suspect Josh would have probably delivered his first one in the womb.
