Jim Bailey told the New York Post: "Calista Flockhart and the cast, and the originator, David E. Kelley, loved it," says Mr. Bailey. "At the end, they all stood up to applaud me, which they keep in the final airing. Calista told me she's a big fan, and that I was incredible. She was very respectful." Mr. Bailey doesn't think his idol, Barbra, will mind. He has performed songs for her and visited her home.
