Bonus Trivia

.

"I usually have to do a sh*tload of commercials and one crappy pilot to afford my theater habit." - Chamberlin to the New York Post, May 10, 2000

.

"In 'Seussical' I get to be the big ballad romantic lead, which character actors never get to do. We're usually Billis in 'South Pacific' or Nicely Nicely [in 'Guys and Dolls'] or one of the gangsters in 'Kiss Me, Kate.' We never get the romantic lead. It'll probably never happen again in my life. But I always love to be challenged and in that respect I'm being challenged because until this point I've always been the henchman and the second banana." - Chamberlin to Playbill On-Line, Dec. 14, 1999
