Jimmy ‘JDurk’ Early?

12 Dec

Tonight I saw ‘Dreamgirls’ at the Apollo, which was alright; I had a hard time watching the show as everyone ran offstage a minute before the scene ended to change costumes or wigs, sometimes leaving an actor onstage just chatting into the wings. But, I did find myself distracted by the odd and inalienable fact that one of the actors, the lovely and talented Chester Gregory (playing Jimmy ‘Thunder’ Early), has been put in a wig that makes him look uncannily like a mix between Turk and JD, the two main characters on Scrubs. But don’t take my word for it – here’s Chester Gregory in the wig:

The Cast of 'Dreamgirls'. Jimmy 'JDurk' Early is second from the right.

And now, from Scrubs, conveniently already beginning to morph for their future appearance on the Apollo stage, Turk (Donald Faison) and JD (Zach Braff):

I think one of them is thinking 'Jimmy Got Soul' and the other is thinking 'Fake Your Way to the Top.'

For serious, though, how weird is that? I think if the three of them were in the same room together, the universe might un-make itself.
