Michael played the young and deeply disturbed James... who seems like a kind soul, but who suffers from schizophrenia. Michael's ability to morph back and forth from a sweet, polite, innocent boy one minute, to a disturbed, tortured soul the next was just INCREDIBLE.... Good Lord. What an AMAZING performance! I'm still pretty speechless from his interrogation scene.
It's guest appearances like this that really allow him the opportunity to showcase his AMAZING range as an actor! And although I think he has a GORGEOUS singing voice, after seeing this, he proves that his real strength lies in drama.
If you're interested in seeing the episode, it's episode #9 entitled "Identity Theft". You can actually view it on the official site, in its entirety here:
He's simply AMAZING... I'm still extremely blown away by his talent!
