In 2000 I got a role as Michael Lynch in ORDINARY DECENT CRIMINAL; I appeared opposite Helen Hunt and Haley Joel Osment in PAY IT FORWARD; and co-starred with Jeff Bridges as a suspected alien in the Universal film, K-PAX.
In 2001 I hosted the television event “Come Together: A Night for John Lennon's Words and Music," and even sang a version of Lennon's song Mind Games. John Lennon always had a prophetic ability to be way ahead of his time, and I was very honored to participate in this event. It took place on October 2 in Radio City Music Hall in New York. The date was one week before what would have been the 61st anniversary of Lennon’s birth, and only weeks after the tragic events of September 11 2001. These events changed the focus of the tribute which was dedicated to “New York City and its people.”
Other well-known people who paid their tributes that night included: Yoko Ono, Yolanda Adams, Marc Anthony, Beck, Edie Falco, Nelly Furtado, James Gandolfini, Dustin Hoffman, Cyndi Lauper, Sean Lennon, Shelby Lynne, Dave Mathews, Moby, Alanis Morissette, Billy Preston, Lou Reed, Stone Temple Pilots and Rufus Wainwright.
