    Heck why not sing. There are a lot of singers who shouldn’t sing but they do. He might be pretty good.

    GO DANIEL GO! He would be awesome in Nine, the guy can do no wrong in any role he does! He’s an AMAZING actor and would be awesome to see him in the musical. Backed by Rob Marshall, he’s under good company.
