| Filed under: Broadway BabiesAmerican Idol

We're happy to see he is getting some work, but Broadway is an Idol graveyard!

Let's hope his career doesn't die like some many others!

Justin Guarini, runner-up to Kelly Clarkson in the first American Idol, will star in the new Broadway musical Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown.

The show goes up at Lincoln Center in November and Justin is performing alongside some Broadway heavyweights: Brian Stokes Mitchell, Sherie Rene Scott and last but certainly not least, the incomparable Patti LuPone!

With talent like that backing him up, maybe he'll be okay!

Congrats, Justin!

    I suppose he'll be working in the Popcorn & Candy Concession Booth during the show and on clean-up duty after hours….

    Seriously all this time and he still hasnt cut that god awful hair? What ahs he been doin all this time. Certainly not making music. And givien how awfult hat movie he made with Kelley was how can he be on broadway? What is his appeal?

    He's hardly a name, so he was probably cast by Bartlett Sherr based his talent, not his ability to sell tickets. Theyve got LaPone and Scott for that.

    Is it me or does his nose look over done? He's still pretty though.

    First off, I am SO beyond proud of Justin it's quite ridiculous. He is one of hte most talented, gracious and humble men I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. For all you people who sit here and post negative comments about him, you need a life. And if you're going to post, at least be well informed.

    1. He never got a nose job.
    2. He has in fact cut his hair TWICE since Idol and once more recently, and it's now super short.
    3. He's been working non stop since Idol. He's released two albums, hosts for the TV Guide Network and covers alot of their idol features as well as does red carpet interviews. And he also has done Broadway run throughs, and has been doing shows and press tours as well.

    Do yourself a favor and put your money where you mouth is, CHECK OUT JUSTIN! Either his new music or in this place, he's WELL worth it, and you'll see the person that I've grown to love and respect over the last 10 years.

    WE ARE SO PROUD OF YOU JUSTIN!!!!

    Congratulations Justin!
    He is going to do a fantastic job and I can't wait to see the show.
    P.S I wish Perez would put up the new picture Justin has on his website because he did cut his hair and he looks gorgeous!

    Well, it would be "congrats" from me if he could make some hit records…

    Re: CanadianBacon – THANK YOU- my thoughts exactly. What the flying fuck is up with his nose?! He's a talented singer, yes, but that nose looks odd. idk.. lol

    I like Justin a lot and I wish him the best of luck. But seriously what career are you talking about?? His chances at a career died when he decided to showcase new then new album on Idol by performing "Unchained Melody" after Clay Aiken had just brought the house down with his rendition the day before.
    Anyway, best of luck. I'm sure he'll do great. He's very talented.
