    I don't remember seeing this guy at ALL during the auditions. When he was in the waiting area, I kept thinking 'who is this guy?' I look forward to actually seeing him dance. Hmm - maybe the producers are keeping him under wraps so they can amaze us with his brilliance. Sort of the AI-Bo treatment.

    I'm sure just by looking at him he'll soon become my oldest daughter's favorite. She's almost 13 and is a big fan of contemporary dance. Plus, he's a cutie...

    Every time I look at him I keep thinking he looks like a cross between Nick Carter and that lead singer from Sum 41 who is married to Avril Lavigne (forget his name). Something about his image just screams boy band material.

    Re: Neil Haskell - Season 3

    I watched Hidden Palms because I was bored and nothing interesting was on and he reminds me of the lead on that show. No idea who the actor is *shrugs*

    But... who is he? What is with all these dancers we have never seen before? They spent hours (not really but felt like it) on people they cut but no time on ones they kept?

    Did a quick google on him and he has some pretty solid credentials, should be interesting.

    You couldn't forget Haskell's main role in "Beauty and the Beast." He started as "a village teenager," but once in the Beast's castle, he was the very acrobatic carpet, spinning gaily through the air.

    It was quite a featured role for a rookie, but Haskell isn't as young as he looks. He started tap dance and gymnastics at age 5 back in Clarence Center, an eastern suburb of Buffalo, and he's never stopped. Eventually the gymnastics dropped away, and he added other dance styles -- jazz, ballet, hip-hop, lyrical and something called acro, which prepared him to be a whirling dervish carpet.

    Dance took him to Male Dancer of the Year at the American Dance Awards at the end of high school. He's in the dance program at Point Park, not musical theater. "The training is, like, unbelievable," he says. "I'm learning to use my body to find where the movement should come from, not tricks."

    He auditioned on the advice of a teacher. "I didn't know how big a deal it was until afterward. It's definitely taught me a lot about the business, what I need to do in college to get myself ready for New York, something most people don't get until after college."

    Haskell has a head on his shoulders, though his mop of blond hair and youthful complexion remind you how young he is. And he's not blase about school: "I made dean's list second semester; my mom was really proud."
