You know when you’re at a rock gig and suddenly you realise the bass player looks exactly like that little guy from 90s show My Parents Are Aliens? Yeah, that.
heatworld was minding its own business at a gig when all of a sudden we noticed a striking resemblance in the guy with the guitar and the impressive moustache.
So we stormed backstage waving our work fob and demanding answers (= asked nicely, got invited in without a fuss) and discovered this rocker is, in fact, none other than little Josh from My Parents Are Aliens, the hit kids show on t'telly from 1999 to 2006.
Remember the one? Wacky little family live in a plastic house and the older-than-their-years-kids have to hide the fact their adoptive parents are ker-razy alien-types?
Boy, do we love being right. And he was really nice. Josh (er, we mean Alex) didn’t even mind when we screamed the connection in his face, then told him he also resembled D'Artagnan the musketeer.
The Americans have got a whole dossier of child stars to watch grow. Macaulay Culkin’s gone wacky again; Miley Cyrus is still insanely into Pilates... what have we Brits got? NOTHING. Until now.
