From Mike Most (Visual FX Supervisor): "You're Still You" was actually sung by Josh Groban, who played the part of Malcolm Wyatt. This was, incidentally, his first film acting role. He performed at a charity benefit about 2 months ago, and that's where David Kelley first heard him. The part was written specifically for him. He's still in college (Carnegie Mellon), and his experience prior to this was primarily musical theater. The song was written for a movie and never used, and will be on Josh's CD, produced by David Foster (very well known record producer). We knew when we were shooting this that it would probably be hard for viewers to believe that it's actually his voice, but it is. He's a great kid, and we wish him all the best.
