I've always been a huge fan of the multi-talented Harry Connick Jr. What has he been up to recently?
—M. Beasley, Alliance, Ohio
A lot! Connick, who began playing with a New Orleans jazz band at age 10, went on to score the movie When Harry Met Sally, release several hit albums and appear in the movies Memphis Belle, Copycat, Hope Floats and Independence Day, plus a recent TV adaptation of South Pacific. He's set to make his Broadway acting debut in February—playing the lead in Pajama Game—and you can hear him narrating and singing on The Happy Elf, a computer-animated holiday special based on one of his songs, which airs at 8 p.m. Eastern time Dec. 2 on NBC.
