'Joe Millionaire' star Evan Marriott gets Oscar -- the role, not the award
By Wade Paulsen, 07/17/2003
On the day that the Emmy Award nominations were announced, with none for Fox's Joe Millionaire, we learned that Evan Marriott, the bachelor from the show, wasn't too disappointed ... because he really has his eyes set on Oscar.
Oscar Madison, that is. The Brampton (Ont.) Guardian reports that Evan will be joining the Birdcage Playhouse, a local community theater in the Toronto suburb, for performances of Neil Simon's play The Odd Couple on August 20-24. Evan will be playing the part of sloppy bachelor Oscar Madison, made famous by Walter Matthau and Jack Klugman. Tickets are CDN $23 (payment in "loonies" might be appropriate).
