Caviness: Everybody remembers Frankie Avalon as Teen Angel from the film version — how did you approach it?
Hicks: I just tried to keep it as signature as possible, from the writing of the horn lines to the R&B, adding the harmonica bit — it’s definitely Taylor Hicks playing Teen Angel.
Caviness: Any future acting plans after this?
