Matthew James Thomas was not nominated for a Tony for his performance in Pippin, but it's not hard to imagine him being recognized for something in the near future. The good-looking young actor offered a sweet believability that anchored the entire circus of Pippin and would be an asset to any production. On top of that, Thomas is a terrific singer and played a multitude of roles in both plays and musicals, on stage and screen, in his native U.K. before moving to the United States to fill in for star Reeve Carney at two performances per week in Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark. He didn't stay an alternate for long.
