Since you're an actor yourself, I'd imagine you'd agree that roles are open to interpretation, and there's room for more than one. I doubt Aaron was hired to do a carbon copy of John Travolta's Danny Zuko. Nor would he want to, and I bet Aaron's TV director of ''Grease,'' Thomas Kail, would agree. In a Hollywood Reporter interview, Aaron was asked about his Danny, and he said: ''I have watched the movie, I mean Travolta’s amazing in it and the way that he does it. But also – because I’m a little more blond than he is – my Danny’s more of a James Dean Danny than an Elvis Danny.''

And just because ''GMA'' didn't include a clip of ''Schmigadoon!'' where Aaron is smiling, don't forget that he sang AND smiled in the reprise of ''You Can't Tame Me.'' Anyway, Aaron wasn't playing John Raitt; he was playing Danny Bailey, and doing it earnestly, under Barry Sonnenfeld's direction.

As for ''Catch Me If You Can,'' Aaron flashed his pearly whites in numbers, like ''Butter Outta Cream'' and ''Jet Set,'' with a leggy line of chorines.
