David Hernandez, Making Rent, Following Constantine?

David Hernandez has been reported on TMZ, MTV and other acronymic sites as traveling to New York to audition for Rent. Season four contestant, Constantine Maroulis has all ready 'hit that' - he toured in the Broadway international touring company of the show as the lead role Roger Davis. Adding to other Idols that have been a part of the Rent production, both Frenchie Davis and Tamyra Gray (she's brilliant) have had spots in the musical.

In the MTV piece it is revealed that Hernandez auditioned for but was turned down to play Roger Davis. Currently he is apparently being considered for a more minor role. The producers were impressed with his big voice, but hesitant to portray him as a lead due to his lack of experience. Still if he is selected for any role in this production it lends to his resume' and certainly can benefit his career. Personally, I think Hernandez a good fit for Broadway. His performances on Idol were certainly on the theatric side, and then too his history as a stripper can lend something... to acting skills.

  1. I think David Hernandez would be great on stage! I didn't really see him as the recording star that a lot of entertainment outlets were reporting that he was seen as. I would definitely check him out on stage and he was just a really nice guy when I met him at the Top 12 party.

    I love your Idol thoughts :) I'm going to add you to my links and I'd love it if you did the same! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  2. Hi DC, I've been reading you for a little while now and decided to start posting. I like your site.

    Lucky you to have gone to the Top 12 party. He seems nice, but perhaps naive. Show business must be an absolutely brutal field.

  3. Yeah there's no doubt that "the biz" will eat someone alive if they're not careful about it. David was actually one of the nicest Idols that I met that night and he did extremely well with the fans and the media in attendance. I feel like the musical stage fits him well though! I loved his big voice during auditions and Hollywood Week.

    I'm looking forward to being a "regular" on here :)

  4. I'm very glad to hear that DC; I get sometimes up to a thousand hits per day, and seldom do they comment. Perhaps it's the blogger format.

    Chancelucky in my links is a big AI fan and a dandy writer. You'd like him too. I've been reading Chance for several years - we met on blogcritics.org. Nice to have a new friend. :)
