Playing Swayze

What happens when you put the guy who plays Sam 'Patrick Swayze' Wheat in "Ghost: The Musical" into another Swayze classic? Only one way to find out.

It turns out that when it comes to press Steven Grant Douglas, star of Ghost: The Musical (at the Orpheum June 18-23), is up for just about anything. So, since we're pretty much obsessed with the coolness of the fact that his first national role is a Patrick Swayze character and the coolness of the fact that his brother is Gabriel Douglas of The 4onthefloor fame, we threw caution and, likely, good taste to the wind and had Steve and Gabe meet us at Lake Nokomis to try their hand at the final scene of the epically bodacious Patrick Swayze/Keanu Reeves flick Point Break.

The results, though far from, uh, polished, and with a small dose of borrowed b-roll from the film itself (thanks in advance James Cameron!), are at both hilarious and indicative of one very serious point: while you may be in a Patrick Swayze role, you will never BE Patrick Swayze. Enjoy.

Into more traditional QAs with the stars of touring shows? No worries, we did one of those too.
