Summary:
Michael was a series regular for one season on this popular 80's TV show in the role of Ian Ware. Ian is a new student at the School of the Arts having just arrived from England. He studies the guitar and has a passion for Rock 'n' Roll, much to the chagrin of his music teacher, Mr. Shorofsky who would like him to stick to classical music. Ian pretty much eat, sleeps, and drinks with his guitar in his hand and is the best musician in his class even though he cannot read ONE note of music- rather he has the ability to listen to music and play it back note for note. Mr. Shorofsky eventually tutors him in sight reading after much arguing. Eventually Ian learns how to read music, and the rest of the episodes usually involve Ian learning to fit into the school and learning more about himself, discovering just what he can acomplish as a musician.




Quantum Leap
Season # 3
AIRDATE: April 10, 1991


Cast:
Scott Backula....................as Sam Beckett
Dean Stockwell...................as Al

Guest Stars:
Christian Hoff, Peter Noone, Johnathan Gries, Michael Cerveris, Robert Bauer, Liza Whichcraft

Summary:
This particular episode of Quantum Leap was nominated for an Emmy Award for Best Costumes in the year it ran (but also, in my opinion, because Michael's presence made it an amazing episode).

In case you are unfamiliar with this show, here is a general plot summary. Samuel Beckett is a brilliant physicist who has developed a way of travelling through time called "Quantum Leaping" (hence the title). He does this by leaping into the bodies of people in other time periods, within his own lifetime. Unfortunately, Sam does not know how to get back home so he must continue leaping until he finally does. In order for Sam to go onto his next leap, he must help the person he has leaped into by changing their history in some way. Helping Sam along the way is his friend Al, who appears to him from the future as a hologram.

In this particular episode, Sam leaps into the body of the lead singer of a British 70's glam rock band called "King Thunder". The band members wear make-up a la KISS!! Michael appears as the band's guitar player and actually has quite a good role in the episode! Sam's ultimate goal is to reunite the singer with the son he never knew he had (played by Christian Hoff, who it is interesting to note, was in the original cast of The Who's Tommy on Broadway as a Pinball Lad).
