New York: Adam Pascal wanted to be in ‘Memphis’ long before he ever saw ‘Memphis,’ which sounds a little crazy."It`s only insane on the surface," the 41-year-old actor says, laughing. "The reality of it is that I`m a Broadway leading man and there are very few Broadway leading man roles. I knew that that was a show that I would be able to pull off."He was right: Pascal, a veteran of ‘Rent,’ ‘Aida’ and ‘Cabaret,’ has slipped into the role of Huey Calhoun in the Tony Award-winning musical, taking over from Chad Kimball."I`m built to do this. It`s kind of what I`m best doing," he says. "I`m physically made to do it. I`m emotionally made to do it. For whatever reason, I have the right sets of skills to make doing musicals something that I really, really love to do."
